Rhiannon Giddens

Pantages Theatre : 7:30 p.m. April 28

Carolina Chocolate Drop’s Rhiannon Giddens is on quite a roll. Her magnificent voice and superb interpretive skills have helped define the Drops’ fascinating forays into African-American folk traditions. She was a standout on the live tribute to the ’60s folk revival inspired... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter, Americana

Sufjan Stevens

Northrop : 7:30 p.m. April 22

Sufjan Stevens retreated from the electronic experimentation of his last album, 2010's The Age of Adz, in favor of the hushed acoustics of his new record, Carrie & Lowell. Without knowing the circumstances, it might appear the stripping-down was his way of making things easy on himself. Quite... More >>

University Rock

Joe Bonamassa

Orpheum Theatre : 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. from April 24 until April 25

As a young guitar prodigy, 12-year-old Joe Bonamassa famously opened for no less than B. B. King. More than a quarter century later, Bonamassa is a guitar-wielding juggernaut who’s remarkably prolific, touring nearly incessantly, issuing albums and DVDs at a dizzying pace, all while... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock


Icehouse : 10:30 p.m. April 24

It's been a busy release season over at Icehouse -- the Whittier fixture has hosted debut celebrations for The Awful Truth, Tin Can Gin, and Jon Jones in the past month, and now it's time for ACTN to get in on the action. The self-styled "deathpop" outfit will be premiering their single "My... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Rock

Session Minneapolis

The Record Room : 10:00 p.m. every other week Wed.

This bi-weekly dance music night in First Avenue’s Record Room focuses on bringing a local and international flavor to their Drum ‘n’ Bass and Jungle mix. The vibe is always positive and welcoming, as a wide array of dance music fans get loose with whatever modern sounds the... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Drum 'n' Bass, DJ

Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def)

The Skyway Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 25

If the name hasn’t stuck, it’s because Yasiin Bey -- best known as Mos Def -- hasn’t given it the proper push yet. As a rapper, his most recent album came in the form of 2009’s The Ecstatic, an excellent, eclectic effort that highlighted his lyrical sophistication and... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop

Neko Case

Fitzgerald Theater : 7:00 p.m. April 25

For Record Store Day last weekend, singer-songwriter Neko Case reissued her 2006 album, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. That gesture might suggest that she is more focused on looking back than moving forward, and her best days, and albums, are behind her. But her bold new work proves otherwise.... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter

Honduras Electrico: A Backyard Bash and Benefit

Grumpy's : 2:00 p.m. April 25

Northeast Minneapolis Rock

The One Love Movement

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

Dar Williams

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. April 26

New York singer-songwriter Dar Williams is a national treasure, and the Twin Cities are lucky to be hosting her two weekends in a row. Williams gave the keynote address as part of the MN Music Summit last weekend. And Sunday she returns to headline her own tour with fellow NPR regular Lucy... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter

David Hidalgo and Marc Ribot

The Cedar Cultural Center : 8:00 p.m. April 18

Ace guitarists David Hidalgo and Marc Ribot have been kicking around for a few years in a cool side project dubbed Border Music. Hidalgo is lead guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter for the iconic East L.A. Latin roots-rockers Los Lobos and the more experimental offshoot Latin Playboys. Ribot is... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter, Folk

The Mountain Goats

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. April 19

Indie-folk darlings the Mountain Goats are led by John Darnielle's vulnerable vocals and detailed lyricism. The group's awkward charm permeates the acoustic-laden songs telling of small towns, breakups, and unique encounters. Darnielle's storytelling is at the vulnerable heart of each number,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

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


The Varsity Theater : 10:00 p.m. last Wed. of every month

"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 >>

University DJ

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

James McMurtry

Fine Line Music Cafe : 8:00 p.m. April 25

James McMurtry’s been at this songwriting game for a long time now, telling the truth of the world via its fringe characters. His finely etched songs are literate, wry, and occasionally caustic, as he digs into the heart of his inspirations. In the grand Texas songwriting tradition,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter

Cornbread Harris

Loring Pasta Bar : 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 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.

"Retro" is a tricky niche to slot a dance night into.

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Lightning Bolt

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. April 20

Noise-rock pioneers Lightning Bolt made headlines last week for making some inflammatory statements about VICE in the New York Observer. But then again, there isn't much about the Providence veterans that isn't inflammatory. Ever since their halcyon days playing living rooms in Brooklyn... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

They Might Be Giants

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. April 18

It's entirely appropriate that Johns Flansburgh and Linnell — the marvelously peculiar Brooklyn duo otherwise known as They Might Be Giants — took a detour into kids' music during the mid-aughts, tilting at Muppets for several years until careening back into ostensibly adult stuff... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

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...
