Creole Choir of Cuba

Ordway Center for the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. October 22

The roots of Creole Choir of Cuba's 10 members and repertoire stretch back to Haitians who immigrated to Cuba in the early 19th century. Many of the folk songs were passed down over subsequent generations: tales of survival, quests for freedom, love pangs, humorous commentaries. The group's... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) International

The Black Keys

Target Center : 8:00 p.m. October 24

Whether or not you think the Black Keys have drifted too far from their garage-rock beginnings, the band's faith in all things rock 'n' roll is admirable. Over the past five years, frontman Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney have become the closest thing we're going to get to the Stones or... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Flying Lotus

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. October 25

Los Angeles producer and Warp signee Flying Lotus is on a wavelength all his own. Everything from spastic jazz to Dilla beats to classic soul to IDM makes up his sonic hodgepodge. His latest album, You're Dead!, is nothing if not a head trip, shifting wildly between beautiful instrumentation... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Jazz, Experimental, Electronica

Lonesome Shack

Bayport BBQ : 8:00 p.m. October 26

On their way home from the relocated Deep Blues Festival (now in Clarksdale, Mississippi), Seattle blues trio Lonesome Shack will drop by the fest's old haunts to help celebrate the Bayport roadhouse's fourth anniversary. Despite its northwest origins, LS's music is inspired by the grit 'n'... More >>

Outstate Blues

Nude Beach, Big Girl

Hexagon Bar : 9:00 p.m. October 28

It's getting a little chilly around here for the lower-case phenomenon, but Nude Beach, the Brooklyn-outta-upstate trio, plays hook-friendly rock 'n' power pop that'll warm whatever cockles you've still got exposed with classic-rock fervor, punkish spirit, and indie-rock smarts. Chuck Betz,... More >>

Seward/ Longfellow/ Minnehaha Rock

Rhye

Pantages Theatre : 6:30 p.m. October 23

It's impressive that two men in Los Angeles have created one of the best sonic descendants of Sade in modern R&B. That's exactly how Rhye comes across, and it's a surprise to learn that the creamy vocals associated with the project are those of Toronto-bred Mike Milosh, and not those of a... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) R&B

Pert Near Sandstone 10th Anniversary Show

First Avenue : 7:30 p.m. October 24

Minnesota urban bluegrass boys Pert Near Sandstone have thrived by injecting the new into old-timey string band music with just the right contemporary touch. This show marks the band's 10th anniversary. Pert's sixth album, The Hardest Part of Leaving, sports a handful of traditional tunes,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Folk, Bluegrass

Mary Black

Fitzgerald Theater : 6:30 p.m. October 28

Irish singer Mary Black's work with her siblings as the Black Family, in the seminal Irish traditional band De Dannan, and in her acclaimed solo career has been beloved on both sides of the Atlantic for some 30 years. She is retiring from the road after this Last Call tour, which will deposit... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Celtic

Disco Fever

Kitty Cat Klub : 9:00 p.m. last Sat. of every month

As titles go, 'Disco Fever' misleadingly sounds like the name of a K-Tel compilation or a roller-boogie b-movie from 1979 -- right before disco itself collapsed and went from inescapable fad to pop-culture pariah. But we live in a better tomorrow, where Chic's Nile Rodgers still plays on... More >>

University DJ

International Reggae All-Stars

Bunker's Music Bar & Grill : 9:00 p.m. every Tue.

Make all the jokes you want about the climate differences between Kingston and Minneapolis, but the cultural ones aren't as hard to reconcile. The aptly dubbed Lynval "Golden Voice" Jackson and his band have been a welcome and frequent presence in Twin Cities clubs for years now, and they're... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Reggae

Dr. Mambo's Combo

Bunker's Music Bar & Grill : 9:30 p.m. every Mon., Sun.

1987 was a notable year for Minnesota: the Twins won the World Series, Prince released one of his best albums in Sign 'O' the Times, and St. Louis Park's own Coen Brothers released their first great comedy Raising Arizona. 1987 was also the year that Dr. Mambo's Combo was formed, and it just so...

Minneapolis (Downtown) R&B

Get Cryphy!

The Record Room : 10:00 p.m. first Fri. of every month

We may be a few years past the point where crunk and hyphy are the hot-trend hip hop subgenres, but First Ave's recurring "Get Cryphy!" night isn't just a matter of trying to find new life in a couple aging styles by portmanteauing them together. Jimmy2Times¬, Plain Ole Bill, DJ Fundo and... More >>

Open Blues Jam with Moses Oakland

Famous Dave's BBQ & Blues Uptown : 8:00 p.m. every Sun.

Moses Oakland relocated from the Bay Area to the Twin Cities back in 1987, and since then -- well, it'd probably be easier and less space-consuming to list all the venues he hasn't played and the legends he hasn't gigged with. A blues, soul and jazz aficionado well-versed in a wide array of... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Blues

Cornbread Harris

Loring Pasta Bar : 6:00 p.m. every Fri.

You might've heard of his son -- a man named Jimmy who teamed up with another man named Terry, the rest being R&B history -- but Cornbread Harris is a Twin Cities legend in his own right. Harris is a WWII vet who joined Augie Garcia to record the area's first rock'n'roll record (1955's "Hi Yo... More >>

University R&B, Jazz

Transmission

Clubhouse Jager : 10:00 p.m. every Wed. until October 22

"Retro" is a tricky niche to slot a dance night into. Usually you've got to find yourself an era and a genre, hew towards the hits, and maybe garnish it with an outsized wink, a double-pistol-point and a smirking acknowledgement that you think the past is, well, kinda goofy. But Transmission... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) DJ

Karaoke Night

Otter's Saloon : 9:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Sun.; 8:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat.

The outside of Otter's Saloon features a mural of a dapper otter decked out in a top hat, suit, and bow tie, his googly eyes and martini glass saluting patrons knowingly. Step inside and you will find a long bar filled with disco balls, giant football helmets, and electric rodents drinking... More >>

University Karaoke

The Bungalow

The Record Room : 10:00 p.m. every Thu.

Friday night gets all the love, Wednesday night has its nudge-wink "hump day" cachet and everyone hates Mondays so much that there's no choice but to go out and wash that start-of-the-week ennui away. But what about Thursday, the day of the week where people are most likely to put... More >>

Hotpants

Nomad World Pub : 9:00 p.m. third Sat. of every month

"Hot Pants (She Got to Use What She Got to Get What She Wants)" was one of several immortal singles from James Brown's early '70s run of heavy, J.B.'s-era classics. The same funk factory cranked out Vicki Anderson's saucy "I'm Too Tough for Mr. Big Stuff (Hot Pants)" the same year, and by the... More >>
