Pickin' for Autism: An Evening of Bluegrass Benefiting Lionsgate Academy

Amsterdam : 6:30 p.m. June 6

We all know (or really, really should know) that vaccines don't cause autism. But did you know bluegrass can help those living with the disorder? That's the idea behind Pickin' For Autism, the charitable strum fest benefiting unique-needs charter school Lionsgate Academy. Folk/country duo the... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Bluegrass

The Who

Target Center : 7:30 p.m. October 10

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock


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 >>

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

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

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

Edina Festival


First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. May 29

Hailed by countrymen Noel Gallagher and Johnny Marr as one Britain's finest new bands, Temples exploded into the indie-rock world in 2013 with a sound firmly rooted in the past. The group, similar to their formerly colonized countrymen in Tame Impala, trade in '60s psychedelia — think the... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock


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

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

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

Graham Parker & the Rumour

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 7:00 p.m. June 5

Graham Parker was the quintessential angry young man in the mid-'70s, spitting out clever, hard-bitten tunes with the intensity of a howlin’ wind and the versatile finesse of his pub rock-honed band, the Rumour. After splitting from the band in 1980, Parker pursued a singer-songwriter... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Americana

Hot Chip

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. May 30

With the revitalization of Kraftwerk, London electro-pop band Hot Chip seem to be losing market share. Their robo-apocalyptic single "Huarache Lights" could've been plucked from Kraftwerk's B-side vault for its grinding, computational dance mechanisms. But, as a whole, their new album Why Make...

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Tall Tales (Record Release Show)

Icehouse : 9:30 p.m. June 1

Formidable and eclectic improvisational jazz guitarist Dean Granros has been a significant presence on the Twin Cities music scene for four decades. After a period with a diminished local profile, Granros is back, here leading Tall Tales, a new ensemble featuring local jazz heavyweights:... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Jazz

Murder By Death

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. May 29

With a name suggesting Agatha Christie (and actually borrowed from a 1976 film spoofing the sleuth genre), Murder By Death hold genuine mysteries in their brooding, often melancholy blend of edgy rock, country, folk, and chamber pop. The Indiana quintet favors an anthemic sound tied to big,... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Alabama Shakes

Historic Hall's Island : 4:30 p.m. May 30

The transcendent brilliance of Sound & Color, Alabama Shakes' second album, goes well beyond Brittany Howard's phenomenal voice and the band's smart evocations of Southern soul, blues, and R&B. If those qualities were enough, the Shakes could have simply doubled down on the blistering soul-funk... More >>

Northeast Minneapolis 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

Get Together 3: Featuring Mark Farina

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. June 6

You may not know that Minneapolis has its own hyper-local version of the Ultra Music Festival, but that's more or less what Get Together is. It's the EDM/dance party's third iteration, and the sprawling two-room throwdown features nearly a dozen Twin Cities DJs spinning in the name of peace,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) DJ

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

The Rolling Stones

TCF Bank Stadium : 8:00 p.m. June 3

The Stones have been rolling (and tumblin’) for so long now there are entire books full of punchlines riffing on their antiquity. There remains little proof that the Stone Age was named after the band or that Keith Richards was an actual pirate of the Caribbean. But there is discernible... More >>

University Rock

Best Coast

First Avenue : 7:30 p.m. June 8

On new Best Coast album California Nights, the third from frontwoman Bethany Cosentino and guitarist Bobb Bruno, don't expect any sweeping reinvention. Cosentino found her magic formula in 2010 with Crazy For You, the weed- and cat-centric debut BC album that tantalized music bloggers with its... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Surly 1349 Beer Release Party Featuring 1349

Amsterdam : 7:00 p.m. June 5

The alchemic beardos over at Surly are a bit into metal, in case you haven't seen their demonic BLAKKR tallboys or stumbled into their feinschmecker beer hall where Deathclock is regularly spun. To celebrate their most metal accomplishment -- a black-as-fucking-death American ale made in... More >>
