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 >>

University DJ

The Who

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

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

The Waterboys

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. May 7

At the helm of the shifting crew that has been the Waterboys for some three decades, Mike Scott still musters his signature skirling passion and rapturous “big music” mix of Celtic folk and rock on Modern Blues, the first Waterboys album with entirely new material in eight years.... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock, Celtic

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 >>

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

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) World

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

Waxahatchee

Triple Rock Social Club : 8:00 p.m. May 6

Waxahatchee singer-songwriter/guitarist Katie Crutchfield set out to make a poppier sounding album for her Merge Records debut, Ivy Tripp. The Birmingham native harnessed a fuller, bolder sound this time out, compared to the refined hush of Waxahatchee’s first two albums. Songs like... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

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

Daniel Lanois

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. May 7

Renowned producer Daniel Lanois, acclaimed for his atmospheric sophistication, helped create groundbreaking albums for the likes of U2, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, the Neville Brothers, and Emmylou Harris. But on his first solo album in seven years, Lanois returns to the ambient sonic sculpturing... More >>

Whitey Morgan and the 78's

Cabooze : 8:30 p.m. May 8

Although hailing from the industrial north (Flint, Michigan to be precise), Whitey Morgan has a Texas honky-tonk heart. Singing in a gruff baritone surrounded by tinkling piano strains, whining steel, gnarly guitars, and a barroom stomp, Morgan is pure country outlaw, right there in league with... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Rock, Country

Young Fathers

7th St. Entry : 8:00 p.m. May 9

Summing up Young Fathers as a “Scottish hip-hop trio” never quite fit right, and it's getting even less accurate as the band continues to blossom. Together, 'G' Hastings, Alloysious Massaquoi (who was born in Liberia and moved to Scotland at age four), and Kayus Bankole (born to... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Paul Thorn

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 7:00 p.m. May 3

A former professional boxer who once fought Roberto Duran, Paul Thorn is a Pentecostal preacher's son who shares Elvis's Tupelo hometown and affinity for Southern roots music.
