Katy Perry

Target Center : 7:30 p.m. August 22

Katy Perry rose to top-of-the-pops status on the strength of a few standbys — spectacle, hooks, sexual innuendo — plus an eccentric, party-girl public persona that can shine as bright as her piercing blue eyes. The combustible combination hit gold on 2010's Teenage Dream, spawning... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Pop

Phantom Tails (LP release), Umami, Bollywood

Triple Rock Social Club : 9:00 p.m. August 22

Phantom Tails' enthrallingly catchy sound is self-described as "deep space doom funk." The effect is achieved with distorted analog synthesizers, fuzz bass, and angular guitar paired with electronic drum beats sampled from vintage 808 machines. New album Rides Battalion is the band's fifth... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Jeff Bridges & the Abiders

Pantages Theatre : 7:00 p.m. August 24

Jeff Bridges's film career far overshadows his musical exploits. His singing reached a peak with his role as an outlaw country musician in Crazy Heart, and a subsequent eponymous album produced by T Bone Burnett. No dilettante, Bridges is a convincing songwriter, singer, and guitarist who fits... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Country

Mock the Garden

Hexagon Bar : 8:00 p.m. August 25

The Hexagon and Memory Lanes are coming together to host a three-stage festival featuring 27 acts from the local DIY scene and beyond. Brain Tumors vocalist (and City Pages contributor) Drew Ailes (pictured) and employees from both venues came together with the goal of raising funds to purchase... More >>

Seward/ Longfellow/ Minnehaha Rock

Hipshaker 12th Anniversary Soul Dance Party

Kitty Cat Klub : 9:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. from August 22 until August 23

Other than the fact that the Kitty Cat Klub is getting way too small to hold the crowds it attracts, Hipshaker's the perfect dance night for the non-clubbing set. Bearded flannel-clad dudes, hipster ladies in pleated skirts, and rad gender-queer folk all groove to a soul mix that starts off... More >>

University DJ

Aretha Franklin

Minnesota State Fair Grandstand : 7:30 p.m. August 22

The incredible Aretha Franklin, 72, has bounced back from an apparently dire health crisis a few years ago. She's reportedly slimmed down, recording fresh material (covers of Gladys Knight, Donna Summer, Alicia Keys, and Adele) with Babyface and Andre 3000, and in top vocal form, her soaring,... More >>

Totally Gross National Party 2014

Icehouse : 2:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. August 23

Totally Gross National Product can throw one hell of a get-together. For the past five years, they have thrown an annual celebration of their roster of musicians, while teaming with other imaginative musical talents throughout the Twin Cities. We had such a fun time there we voted it our best... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Rock, Hip-Hop

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

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

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

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 >>

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 >>

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


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 >>

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 >>
