Alt-J

Myth : 7:00 p.m. October 31

Alt-J emerged from Leeds University and soon earned comparisons to Radiohead for the unpredictable, mathematically complex tunes on its debut, An Awesome Wave. The band is now on a tour of sold-out halls, coinciding with last month's release of This Is All Yours, which is equally enigmatic and... More >>

Maplewood Rock

Slowdive, Low

Fine Line Music Cafe : 8:00 p.m. October 31

Influential shoegaze band Slowdive broke up after the release of their third album, 1995's Pygmalion. In the span of only six years, the group left a lasting impact. The sheer tone of the guitars, Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell's woozy vocals, and the drum patterns congealed in an aesthetic... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

The Wytches

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. November 1

Just in time for Day of the Dead frivolities, Brighton trio the Wytches arrive with appropriately ghoulish garage psychedelia gleefully stretching from twangy psychobilly to the brink of early Black Sabbath via the Cramps. The band scare up abundant hooks for the faint of heart to cling onto as... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Mike Mictlan (album release)

7th St. Entry : 9:00 p.m. November 1

Mike Mictlan's massive "CLAPP'D" is about as heavy a lead single as you can get. The Doomtree MC laces the droning beat with a slick-tongued dissection of modern violence that's nonetheless cogent as a club favorite. He's mixed styles since his early days living in L.A., and his latest record,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop

Generationals

7th St. Entry : 7:30 p.m. November 2

Much of Alix, the fourth album from Generationals duo Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, is lighter than air, synth-infused indie pop whose gossamer, fragmented melodies and low-simmering rhythms seem in constant danger of floating away. The pair's new, almost exclusive focus on shimmery, '80s-style... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Bob Dylan

Orpheum Theatre : 8:00 p.m. daily from November 4 until November 6

Dylan's perpetual transit on his so-called Never Ending Tour surpasses a quarter-century now and has included several recent stops in his home state. But it's an event when any artist of Dylan's historic stature comes around, plus it's always interesting to see if he'll utter something profound... 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

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

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 >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) DJ

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 >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Blues

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

Transmission

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

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

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 >>

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

Hotpants

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

"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 by the... More >>
