Shovels & Rope

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. October 3

On Swimmin' Time, the second album from Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent as Shovels & Rope, the duo further hone their critical, often delicate balance between ragged roots and a modern indie-rock sensibility. The South Carolina pair's June-and-Johnny, sweet-and-sour vocal harmonies hit a... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Christopher Owens

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. October 4

San Francisco songwriter and former Girls frontman Christopher Owens's second solo album, A New Testament, functions thanks to the consistency of its many forms and facets. Within, there's rockabilly, twee pop, and a genuinely moving ballad. ("It Comes Back to You" is a slightly scaled-down... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Nachito Herrera & His Cuban Friends

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 8:00 p.m. October 4

Nachito Herrera has taken an eventful route from Cuba to Minneapolis -- a child prodigy at 12 performing Rachmaninoff with the Cuban Symphony Orchestra, a student of Buena Vista Social Club pianist Ruben Gonzalez, and a composer, arranger, and musical director leading a number of ensemble bands...

Minneapolis (Downtown) Jazz, Latin

JJ Grey & Mofro

The Varsity Theater : 7:00 p.m. October 2

Bubbling up among the skeeters and gators in the blackwater swamps and piney woods of north Florida is the greasy soul, funk, rock, and blues concoction that fuels JJ Grey & Mofro. The band has always had Southern rock leanings, and "99 Shades of Crazy" from last year's terrific The River... More >>

University Rock

Joey Bada$$

Mill City Nights : 7:00 p.m. October 3

Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ has said he memorized the words to Biggie's "Hypnotize" upon its arrival in 1997. This feat wouldn't be notable at all — except that he was around two years old at the time. His hip-hop education was eventually nurtured in the best possible way: with his boys,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop

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

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

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


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

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 >>

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 >>

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

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 >>

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


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 >>
