Matthew E. White

7th St. Entry : 7:30 p.m. April 1

Something of a renaissance man, Matthew E. White took a circuitous route to his current rock club residencies following the release of his second solo album, Fresh Blood. A few years ago the Richmond native was leading, writing and arranging material for a nine-piece experimental jazz band... More >>

Diamond Rugs

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. April 3

Diamond Rugs came about in 2011 when a solo project by Deer Tick’s John McCauley evolved into a full-fledged supergroup. Joining the fun are Los Lobos saxophonist/keyboardist Steve Berlin, Tick bassist Rob Crowell, Dead Confederate guitarist Hardy Morris, Six Finger Satellite drummer... More >>

Stevie Wonder

Target Center : 8:00 p.m. March 29

It's been nigh on three decades since Stevie Wonder last performed in the Twin Cities (outdoors at long-lost RiverFest). He returns, finally, after a spectacular Grammys-associated all-star tribute, touring with his acclaimed Songs In the Key of Life tour, doing the talk-show circuit, and... More >>

What Tyrants (Album Release Show)

Triple Rock Social Club : 9:00 p.m. April 3

Following a short tour of the Midwest, the Minneapolis garage-rock trio What Tyrants mark the release of their full-length debut, No Luck. Their new collection – out on Forged Artifacts – bristles with a jangly, guitar-fueled urgency that hooks you in straight away. Their boisterous... More >>

ECID (Record Release Show)

Triple Rock Social Club : 9:00 p.m. March 28

Jason McKenzie, better known as ECID, has paid his dues as a broke rapper long enough to remember recording his first rhymes onto a double–barreled tape deck. Despite the revisionist tendency of the press to pigeonhole all local hip­hop made before 2005 as boom­bap or emo-rap,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop

The Music of Bryce Dessner

Walker Art Center : 8:00 p.m. April 3; 8:00 p.m. April 4

Bryce Dessner's mark on the classical world is as distinctive as what he's done to indie rock with the National. The Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Kronos Quartet, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Carnegie Hall have commissioned his work, and his collaborators include composers Philip Glass,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Experimental, Classical

The Who

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

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Father John Misty

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. April 4

Former Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman morphed into Father John Misty on 2012’s Fear Fun. The album is an hallucinatory circus of spaced-out folk and dystopian pop set among Laurel Canyon’s counterculture ghosts. Misty returns on I Love You, Honeybear, an appropriately... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Happyness

Turf Club : 7:30 p.m. April 6

South London trio Happyness drop by shortly after the U.S. release of their (expanded) debut album, Weird Little Birthday. It’s a quirky charmer, with a hazy, often languid vibe tied to arch melodies, punctuated by playful tangents and riddled with wiseass lyrics that teeter from witty to... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

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

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...

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 >>

New Century Theatre : 7:00 p.m. April 12

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

Transmission

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 >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

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 >>

Glitter Ball 6: Electric A-Go-Go

Fine Line Music Cafe : 7:30 p.m. March 28

Local nonprofit Rock the Cause's sixth iteration of Glitter Ball blends the music and fashions of the '60s for a kaleidoscopic event. Beatles tribute band Rubber Soul, synth-pop act Apollo Cobra, alt-rockers Enemy Planes, Zach Sobiech collaborator Sammy Brown, and Rolling Stones tribute... 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 >>
