The War on Drugs

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue. from September 22 until September 23

Philly rockers the War on Drugs have done a lot of growing up. Their latest, Lost in the Dream, is a mirage-rock masterpiece, with signposts of early Springsteen (including sax!) blown out to practically bankrupt proportions. The album's first single, "Red Eyes," is stunning with its cathartic... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Sena Ehrhardt (CD release)

Famous Dave's BBQ & Blues Uptown : 9:00 p.m. September 19

This Dave's show will mark the release of Live My Life, Southern Minnesota native Sena Ehrhardt's third album for the San Francisco blues label Blind Pig. The album spotlights her killer voice and interpretive skills (here covering Lawrence Williams, Leon Russell, and Albert Collins). But it... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Blues

Festival Palomino

Canterbury Park : 1:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. September 20

Nouveau bluegrass adventurers Trampled By Turtles (pictured) have gradually built a national rep, turning up on Letterman and now headlining and curating this inaugural installment of their own rootsy Americana festival. The Turtles are still touring behind July's darker, moodier Wild Animals,... More >>

Shakopee R&B, Indie Rock, Folk, Bluegrass

Sir Michael Rocks

Mill City Nights : 8:30 p.m. September 20

Both members of the Golden Age-inspired hip-hop duo the Cool Kids released their first solo albums this year. Chuck Inglish worked with Incubus's Mike Einziger to concoct a summer album with loads of live instrumentation on Convertibles, but Sir Michael Rocks was more content with tracks... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop

Pokey LaFarge

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. September 21

Pokey LaFarge hails from St. Louis, "just a plain old Midwestern boy just gettin' by on central time." But his origin is the only thing plain about LaFarge, who nevertheless embraces "old" as in the broad swath of vintage styles he inhabits as if near-on 100 years were lopped off the calendar....

Minneapolis (Downtown) Folk

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


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


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 >>

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

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

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

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 >>
