Sam Roberts Band

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. November 21

Montreal's Sam Roberts Band is far better known north of the border, where their heartland roots-leaning rock racked up popular support and slew of awards, including multiple Junos. On this year's Lo-Fantasy, however, the band tried a new tack with the help of U.K. producer Youth (a.k.a. Martin... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Slick Rick

Amsterdam : 8:00 p.m. November 21

The list of rappers who count Slick Rick as an inspiration is long and spans multiple eras, and it stands to reason. With silky storytelling, a distinctive fashion sense showcasing fat gold chains, timeless braggadocio, and a playful attitude, the blueprint Rick the Ruler brought to hip-hop is... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Hip-Hop

Horse Feathers

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. November 22

Horse Feathers are currently supporting their fifth album, this year's So It Is With Us. The relatively energetic LP is the Oregon folk rockers' first to feature drums and bass. Frontman Justin Ringle has said that he wanted the album to help listeners "have a good weekend," rather than, say,... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Barbara Jean (CD Release Show)

Icehouse : 10:30 p.m. November 22

If North Shore songstress Barbara Jean's voice is as clear as Lake Superior, then the music that she and her band make is as cozy as a winter gathering 'round the fireplace. This is especially true on the multi-instrumentalist's latest release, Darker Than Blue, a 10-track collection of... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Americana

Guantanamo Baywatch

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. November 23

Portland surf rockers Guantanamo Baywatch are famous for their sexed-up stage show. Their campy "Wipe Out" homage pairs nicely with D-movie levels of raunch, and the Suicide Squeeze trio brings both in buckets with songs like "Cum Fart Food" and "Massage My Taj Mahal." It's like a Ralph... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Rock

Atlantis Quartet

Icehouse : 9:30 p.m. November 24

The premier contemporary jazz band in the Twin Cities will record its next album live at this Icehouse performance. As on the 2011 live recording Lines in the Sand, Atlantis Quartet will revisit, sometimes in radically different ways, material previously recorded in the studio (likely from... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Jazz

Flosstradamus

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

Curt Cameruci (a.k.a. Autobot) and Josh Young (a.k.a. J2K) launched Flosstradamus as a party series in their hometown of Chicago eight years ago. As word of mouth spread and their parties began to sell out, with EDM lovers from across the nation traveling to Chicago to experience their mix of... More >>

Fleetwood Magic: Night of 100 Stevies

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. November 26

If you’re under the age of 35, there’s a reliable chance you were conceived to Rumours. Since your parents will be in town for Turkey Day this Thursday, why not surprise the folks whose Stevie-sweetened lovemaking begat your existence with tickets to Turf Club’s Fleetwood Mac... More >>

Macalester/Groveland Covers

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... 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,... 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. With donations and net proceeds funding the... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop

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, Basie. And aptly so for this Big Band Holidays show, which... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Jazz

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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

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 >>

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 >>
