From There to Here

MMAA Project Space : Every Thu., Sat., Sun. until October 19

If you've ridden the new Green Line lately, rather than driving to your destination, no doubt you've felt enveloped in and privy to a new sense of community.

Katy Perry

Target Center : 7:30 p.m. August 22

Katy Perry rose to top-of-the-pops status on the strength of a few standbys — spectacle, hooks, sexual innuendo — plus an eccentric, party-girl public persona that can shine as bright as her piercing blue eyes. The combustible combination hit gold on 2010's Teenage Dream, spawning... More >>

This group exhibition of New York-based artists Joshua Abelow, Sadie Laska, MacGregor Harp, and Adrianne Rubenstein brings a batch of renegade talent to the Twin Cities.

Phantom Tails (LP release), Umami, Bollywood

Triple Rock Social Club : 9:00 p.m. August 22

Phantom Tails' enthrallingly catchy sound is self-described as "deep space doom funk." The effect is achieved with distorted analog synthesizers, fuzz bass, and angular guitar paired with electronic drum beats sampled from vintage 808 machines. New album Rides Battalion is the band's fifth... More >>

Jeff Bridges & the Abiders

Pantages Theatre : 7:00 p.m. August 24

Jeff Bridges's film career far overshadows his musical exploits. His singing reached a peak with his role as an outlaw country musician in Crazy Heart, and a subsequent eponymous album produced by T Bone Burnett. No dilettante, Bridges is a convincing songwriter, singer, and guitarist who fits... More >>

MN Music On-A-Stick

Minnesota State Fair Grandstand : 4:00 p.m. August 30

Bring together Brother Ali and Doomtree (pictured) -- who are gearing up for the release of their next studio album -- and you've already got the most rap-heavy offering of the entire 2014 State Fair. The rest of the bill is a catch-all of local (or formerly local) talent. Sugar and Hüsker... More >>

Hipshaker 12th Anniversary Soul Dance Party

Kitty Cat Klub : 9:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until August 23

Other than the fact that the Kitty Cat Klub is getting way too small to hold the crowds it attracts, Hipshaker's the perfect dance night for the non-clubbing set. Bearded flannel-clad dudes, hipster ladies in pleated skirts, and rad gender-queer folk all groove to a soul mix that starts off... More >>

Aretha Franklin

Minnesota State Fair Grandstand : 7:30 p.m. August 22

The incredible Aretha Franklin, 72, has bounced back from an apparently dire health crisis a few years ago. She's reportedly slimmed down, recording fresh material (covers of Gladys Knight, Donna Summer, Alicia Keys, and Adele) with Babyface and Andre 3000, and in top vocal form, her soaring,... 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 >>

The Lab Theater : 7:30 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until August 24; 2:00 p.m. every Sun. from August 24 until August 24

In 1948 President Truman signed Executive Order 9981, a landmark directive that signaled the end of segregation within the ranks of the United States military. Indications of the eventual change, however, could be seen much earlier, most notably in 1943 when the first integrated army unit was... More >>

One might wonder what guitar-slinging comedian Pete George was into first: music or comedy? "It was both," he explains. "I played in a lot of '80s bands in Cleveland before trying standup." It was Rodney Dangerfield's Young Comedians Specials that got him interested in comedy. "They really... More >>

Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema

St. Anthony Main Theater : Daily until August 31

With the exception of Roman Polanski, few Polish film directors have achieved name recognition with casual cinema-goers in the United States. This oversight is especially egregious considering how influential Polish films have been in the development of cinema as an artistic medium. Intending... More >>

Graven Image: New Work by Luke Hillestad

Douglas Flanders & Associates : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. from August 23 until September 13

There aren't too many painters here in the Twin Cities who can claim Rembrandt as an inspiration, and see that inspiration directly in their work. Luke Hillestad is that artist. The land surveyer turned full-time painter creates pieces that look like they came from another era, with warm color... 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.

Sights, Sounds, and Soul: Twin Cities through the Lens of Charles Chamblis

Minnesota History Center : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 4

If you've wisely picked up Purple Snow, the Numero Group's recent collection of Twin Cities R&B from the '70s and '80s, you'll have seen many of Charles Chamblis's striking color photos.
