Sonny Knight and the Lakers

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. December 18; 9:30 p.m. December 19

Not only is Minneapolis powerhouse soul and funk vocalist Sonny Knight still around, he’s in the midst of a full-fledged career renaissance. Capping off a pretty remarkable year, Knight and his ferociously tight, swaggering band the Lakers will play four shows over two nights at the... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Soul

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

Jhené Aiko

The Skyway Theatre : 7:00 p.m. December 21

Occupying different spaces within the futurist alternative R&B spectrum, Jhené Aiko, SZA, and the Internet touring together makes a surprising amount of sense. With her recent debut release Souled Out (which ticket-buyers will receive as a free digital download) expanding on the arc of... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Soul

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

Pallbearer

Triple Rock Social Club : 8:00 p.m. December 17

Little Rock's Pallbearer, possibly America's foremost young doom-metal band, aren't doing anything out of left field. Their music is slow and low, composed of Brett Campbell's vaguely panicked vocals, skull-smashingly forceful guitars, similarly ominous bass, and drums like tumbling towers. But... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Metal

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

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 >>

University DJ

Claudia Schmidt

F.K. Weyerhaeuser Auditorium : 7:00 p.m. December 19

Claudia Schmidt’s spectacular multi-octave voice is at once luminous and earthy, as sturdy as an oak while as ethereal as the wind blowing through its leaves, as warm as a crackling fire holding off Midwestern chill. Michigan native Schmidt is again living in our midst. With the release... More >>

St. Paul (Downtown) Folk

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 >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) DJ

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

Twin Cities Jazz Sampler Release Party

Jazz Central : 7:30 p.m. December 20

Although always seemingly flying a bit under the general public’s radar, the local jazz scene is thriving artistically with multiple players and groups comparable to the best on national and international stages. In fact, local trumpeter Steve Kenny, who put together the disc being... More >>

University Jazz

Gift-Rapped: Killstreak, the Rotation, Christopher Michael Jensen

7th St. Entry : 7:30 p.m. December 23

Gift-Rapped touts a strong bill of local hip-hop up-and-comers,. Emotive, dystopian, and unflinching, Killstreak combines Tony the Scribe's intricately crafted rapping with Icetep's blistering EDM-influenced production for a sound that takes heart-on-the-sleeve hip-hop in progressive... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Hip-Hop

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

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...

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 >>
