A Tribute To The Replacements

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. November 28

We always wondered if First Avenue's annual tribute festival honoring the Replacements would call it quits when the band finally did a reunion show, but the popular night of covers shows no signs of stopping. Taking over both of the venue's main stages, A Tribute to the Replacements has found a... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Thee Oh Sees

Amsterdam : 8:00 p.m. November 28

Thee Oh Sees are the baby of guitarist John Dwyer, who for a decade or so has been tripping on a lysergic wave of psychedelia brewed in the garage. Over the years and numerous records, Dwyer's acid tide eye has shifted among punk, rockabilly, new wave, power pop, noise, and hard rock, among... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Rock

Live Transmission

The Varsity Theater : 7:00 p.m. November 29

November tends to be a very busy month for local art-rockers BNLX, and 2014 is no different. For the past couple of years, they've set up at Cause for a weekend to host a Fest featuring themselves and lots of their talented friends. With the Lyn-Lake venue still sorting its situation out, the... More >>

Cold Flows For Warm Clothes Benefit

The Cedar Cultural Center : 6:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. November 30

Originally envisioned by MC Tall Paul as a way to showcase some of the Twin Cities' best underground hip-hop talent in a benefit concert, Cold Flows for Warm Clothes has become something of a Thanksgiving tradition in the past few years.

Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

Orchestra Hall : 7:30 p.m. December 2

Led by world-class trumpeter and premier jazz ambassador Wynton Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is one of the best and most prominent contemporary large jazz ensembles, nicely continuing the legacy of folks like Ellington and Basie. And aptly so for this Big Band Holidays show, which... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Jazz

Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. December 3

Who better to put the cool back into Yule than erstwhile Jesus of cool Nick Lowe? The eternally hip, ever clever Lowe has morphed over the years from ’70s pub rocker to grandfatherly pop crooner, although there’s still plenty of the former in the latter, along with a still wicked... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Sturgill Simpson

Fine Line Music Cafe : 7:00 p.m. December 4

Sturgill Simpson was born in the hills of eastern Kentucky, served in the Navy, worked as a train conductor and was addicted to drugs throughout his 20s. In other words, there’s plenty of material to mine for his unique brand of alt-country. Now 36 years old, Simpson got a late start on... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Country

Omar Souleyman

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. December 5

A wedding singer from northeastern Syria, Omar Souleyman became known regionally via distribution of performance cassettes of his energetic mix of traditional dabka rhythms and shaabi, a kind of street-savvy urban folk-pop. The combination of Souleyman’s rapid-fire declarative vocals,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) International

Narco States (CD Release Show)

Triple Rock Social Club : 9:00 p.m. December 5

Local mom-and-pop label Pinata Records has made a name by releasing mellow and groovy soul-tinged albums from groups like Black Diet and Southside Desire, but their deep roster has some heavy freaks lurking just below the surface. Exhibit A is Narco States, who’ve taken the garage and... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

Doomtree Blowout X

Turf Club : 9:00 p.m. December 6

Blowout X is bound to be the most bittersweet of all the underground hip-hop hometown throwdowns that Doomtree has hosted in the past ten years. Bittersweet, because the local collective claims that this will be the final event in a series that has taken them from the Varsity Theater to a... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Hip-Hop

Forged Artifacts Showcase

Triple Rock Social Club : 9:00 p.m. December 6

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock

The Velveteens

Hexagon Bar : 10:00 p.m. December 6

The Velveteens are something a little more intimate than the crowd they run with at the Hexagon Bar nearly every weekend. Taking full advantage of their sparse power-trio instrumentation, the group is able to directly highlight the smoky, intertwining harmonies of drummer Kiera Coonan and... More >>

Seward/ Longfellow/ Minnehaha Rock

Doomtree Blowout X

Icehouse : 9:00 p.m. December 8

Blowout X is bound to be the most bittersweet of all the underground hip-hop hometown throwdowns that Doomtree has hosted in the past ten years.

Lucinda Williams

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. every Sat., Sun. from November 29 until November 30

No longer a woman of constant sorrow, Lucinda Williams still finds plenty of pain, struggle, wickedness, and heartache in the world. But contentment in her personal life has allowed the queen of existential Americana to broaden her perspective, heighten her eloquent dissection of good and evil,... More >>

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 >>

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...

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>
