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

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 >>

University R&B, Jazz

Drive By Truckers

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. May 1

Restless Southern gothic rockers Drive-By Truckers may be between albums, but that’s not preventing the band from hitting the road with an interesting twist. For this tour, the group has revived The Dirt Underneath concept, a mostly acoustic series of shows DBT played in 2007 while... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock


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

Rhiannon Giddens

Pantages Theatre : 7:30 p.m. April 28

Carolina Chocolate Drops' Rhiannon Giddens is on quite a roll. Her magnificent voice and superb interpretive skills have helped define the Drops' fascinating forays into African-American folk traditions. She was a standout on the live tribute to the '60s folk revival inspired by the Coen... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter, Americana

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

Dar Williams

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. April 26

New York singer-songwriter Dar Williams is a national treasure, and the Twin Cities is lucky to be hosting her two weekends in a row. Williams gave the keynote address as part of the MN Music Summit last weekend. And Sunday she returns to headline her own tour with fellow NPR regular Lucy... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter

James McMurtry

Fine Line Music Cafe : 8:00 p.m. April 25

James McMurtry's been at this songwriting game for a long time now, telling the truth of the world via its fringe characters. His finely etched songs are literate, wry, and occasionally caustic, as he digs into the heart of his inspirations. In the grand Texas songwriting tradition, McMurtry's... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter

Joe Bonamassa

Orpheum Theatre : 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until April 25

As a young guitar prodigy, 12-year-old Joe Bonamassa famously opened for no less than B.B. King. More than a quarter century later, Bonamassa is a guitar-wielding juggernaut who's remarkably prolific, touring incessantly and issuing albums and DVDs at a dizzying pace, all while presiding over a...

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def)

The Skyway Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 25

If the name hasn't stuck, it's because Yasiin Bey — best known as Mos Def — hasn't given it the proper push yet. As a rapper, his most recent album came in the form of 2009's The Ecstatic, an excellent, eclectic effort that highlighted his lyrical sophistication and underrated ear... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop


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.

Minneapolis (Downtown) Drum 'n' Bass, DJ

Hurray For The Riff Raff

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. May 1

As its name implies, Hurray For The Riff Raff embraces outsiders of every stripe along with the historic roots music that often defines them. Riff founder Alynda Lee Segarra grew up in the Bronx, but hit the rails as a teenager, eventually ending up busking in New Orleans. Along the way she... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Honduras Electrico: A Backyard Bash and Benefit

Northeast Minneapolis 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

Death Cab For Cutie

Northrop : 7:00 p.m. May 2

Kintsugi, Death Cab For Cutie’s eighth album, is overshadowed and fundamentally influenced by two jarring rifts: Guitarist Chris Walla’s decision to leave the band after playing on the record (while not producing a Death Cab album for the first time); and singer/songwriter’s... More >>

University 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’ Tupelo hometown and an affinity for Southern roots music. For two decades, Thorn has been knocking out a gritty mix of swampy rock’n’roll, gospel, R&B,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter

Neko Case

Fitzgerald Theater : 7:00 p.m. April 25

For Record Store Day last weekend, singer-songwriter Neko Case reissued her 2006 album, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. That gesture might suggest that she is more focused on looking back than moving forward, and her best days, and albums, are behind her. But her bold new work proves otherwise.... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Singer-Songwriter

Jason Moran and Robert Glasper

Walker Art Center : 8:00 p.m. May 2

Pianists Jason Moran and Robert Glasper were high school friends in Houston.

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...
