Sifu Hotman (CD release)

Intermedia Arts : 7:00 p.m. July 25

Last summer saw the release of a three-song project from rappers Guante and Dem Atlas and producer Rube, the trio collectively known as Sifu Hotman. This Friday, the vibrant boom-bap outfit returns with the full-length Embrace the Sun, expanding their energetic sound and solidifying their... More >>

Uptown/ Eat Street Hip-Hop

Lil Durk

Fine Line Music Cafe : 8:00 p.m. July 26

Lil Durk represents the exciting conflation of sounds emanating from Chicago's drill scene, which filter stripped-down, hyper-violent trap through auto-tuned melodies and an unlikely pop sensibility. Teeming with dramatized danger and floating hooks, Lil Durk is a polarizing but compelling... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop


7th St. Entry : 8:00 p.m. July 28

Brooklyn folk-rockers Woods consistently offer pleasant lawn-chair strumming and harmonies ready to be accompanied by a cold microbrew. On April's With Light and With Love, they upped the showiness of their guitar work, drawing cues from British Invasion acts at times and psych-rock at others.... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Rock, Indie Rock


Lee's Liquor Lounge : 9:00 p.m. July 25

For far too long we've been told that Electric Light Orchestra were insufferable '70s cheese, a bloated prog-rock monstrosity that valued production technique over real feeling and hovered near the top of the Reasons Punk Needed to Happen list. Truth is, there was a hell of a power-pop band... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Tribute, Rock

Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin with the Guilty Ones

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 8:00 p.m. July 26

The Blasters were a blast, rolling out of the early-'80s L.A. punk scene with prickly mix of rockabilly, blues, rock 'n' roll, country, and other rootsy stuff, helping launch the Americana movement. At the helm were Phil Alvin with his splendid, evocative voice and Dave Alvin with his splendid,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Country

Kate Tucker & the Sons of Sweden

400 Gallery : 8:00 p.m. July 28

While the 400 Bar continues to work on its unlikely transition from Minneapolis's funky West Bank to the soulless Mall of America, there's an ongoing series of shows in a small performance space inside the Midwest Music Museum called the 400 Gallery. Kate Tucker & the SOS originated in Seattle... More >>

Bloomington Rock

The Body

Hexagon Bar : 9:00 p.m. July 23

The Body is a torrent of relentless, life-hating sludge metal — a Harmony Korine film in the form of a band. Formed by Chip King and Lee Buford in 1999 after a four-month stint in the Blue Man Group, the Body turned heads in extreme music circles long before garnering critical acclaim for... More >>

Seward/ Longfellow/ Minnehaha Rock, Metal

Rebirth Brass Band

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. July 24

The Rebirth won a Grammy for 2011's Rebirth of New Orleans, whose double entendre title reflects a persistent theme as the city continues to bounce back post-Katrina. But three decades in, the Rebirth itself hasn't required rejuvenation. The band just keeps getting tighter, maybe funkier too,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Brass Band


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 >>

Reina del Cid & the Cidizens

Amsterdam : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.

When you hear the name Reina del Cid, you may think Latin music, but it truly is not the case with the Minneapolis singer. A stage name taken because she named her guitar "El Cid," (a knight) the artist came to the conclusion that she would be the "Reina," meaning queen in Spanish. Reina spent... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Rock

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 >>

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


Nomad World Pub : 9:00 p.m. third Sat. of every month

1971's "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... 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

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 >>
