Tyte Jeff (album release)

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. April 19

It's been six long years since Twin Cities post-punk band the Plastic Constellations' joyful swan song, We Appreciate You. Now ex-TPC cog Jeff Allen returns with a wizened wit and hooks to spare as Tyte Jeff. Allen's new outfit trades in spiky electric guitars for piano-led folk rock, but... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Mark McGuire

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. April 17

Guitarist Mark McGuire started out with sedate Cleveland instrumental droners Emeralds, who disbanded a couple of years ago. But our best music databases show more than 30 McGuire releases across different formats since 2007. His signature move has always been a kind of serrated solo that... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Jose James

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. April 21

Minneapolis native singer-songwriter José James has taken a long, unusual path to a little-trampled spot where jazz, R&B, hip-hop, soul, electronica, and, lately, rock come together. While still a teenager he associated with local experimental jazz icons like Douglas Ewart, went to New... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Jazz

Twenty One Pilots

The Skyway Theatre : 6:00 p.m. April 17

The hyperactive glitch-pop of Ohio duo Twenty One Pilots fits our current mash-up cultural moment perfectly. Their major-label debut album, Vessel, darts between oddball rap, Glee-style mega-crooning, and agit-rock rioting — often within a single song. Genre-hopping this extreme is... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Kill Kancer Benefit

The Cedar Cultural Center : 6:00 p.m. April 18

An eclectic, essentially all-star array of local musicians, plus the fabled "special guests," will gather at the Cedar for this benefit to support Kill Kancer, a nonprofit cancer-fighting organization founded by Mary Beth Mueller, wife of Soul Asylum bassist Karl Mueller. Although Karl lost his... More >>

Duluth Homegrown Twin Cities Invasion

Turf Club : 9:00 p.m. April 18

Before Duluth's yearly Homegrown Music Festival turns the city into loud, fitful ball of rock clatter later this month, get a taste at the Turf with four North Country bands. Led by Southwire's soul, folk, and rap infusion (pictured), the night is a distillation of a weird, passionate scene... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock


Bayport BBQ : 8:00 p.m. April 19

"Kudzu boogie" is the shorthand the western North Carolina band Turchi uses to describe its bristling fusion of hard Mississippi Hill Country blues, Southern rock, Southern-fried boogie, and pungent Memphis soul, newly captured on the sizzling, salty slab Can't Bury Your Past. Namesake Reed... More >>

Outstate Rock

Colin Stetson

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. April 17

Bass saxophone innovator Colin Stetson has performed as a touring member of indie-rock icons Bon Iver and Arcade Fire, and favors a similarly expansive approach in his ambient-jazz solo experiments. Over the past decade, Stetson's circular breathing-based technique has resulted in alluringly... More >>

"Kudzu boogie" is the shorthand the western North Carolina band Turchi uses to describe its bristling fusion of hard Mississippi Hill Country blues, Southern rock, Southern-fried boogie, and pungent Memphis soul, newly captured on the sizzling, salty slab Can't Bury Your Past.

Macalester/Groveland Rock


Clubhouse Jager : 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

"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

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


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

1971's "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... More >>

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 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

Reina del Cid & the Cidizens

Amsterdam : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.

When you hear the name Reina del Cid, you may think Latin music, but it truly is not the case with the Minneapolis singer. A stage name taken because she named her guitar "El Cid," (a knight) the artist came to the conclusion that she would be the "Reina," meaning queen in Spanish. Reina spent... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Rock

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 >>

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...

Get Cryphy!

First Avenue : 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 >>
