Monday, November 24

Atlantis Quartet
The premier contemporary jazz band in the Twin Cities will record its next album live at this Icehouse performance. Like 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 2013's Expansion), while also tackling fresh tunes. "What we do live is quite different from what we do in the studio," said guitarist Zacc Harris. "The tunes just take on a new personality and open new corridors." He said the group--which also includes saxophonist Brandon Wozniak, drummer Pete Hennig and bassist Chris Bates--will work up new pieces on a short Wisconsin tour just before the Icehouse session. Either way this should be pretty special because the nearly decade-old AQ has consistently raised the bar with its signature mix of virtuosic firepower, cerebral intrigue, deep jazz roots and maverick eclectic streaks.

Skyway Theatre
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 minimal techno, house, electro and R&B, the duo began hitting the international festival circuit and venturing further into trap music. Flosstradamus have carved their niche on the EDM stage with a catalog of original club bangers. Tuesday's set will feature a gang of unreleased tunes from their upcoming album, a project spawned by their recent signing with Ultra Music. Miami DJ and production duo GTA will open. Recognized for their "anti-genre" stance, GTA defines dance music as whatever makes you move. 8 p.m., $25-$35. -- Sarah Stanley-Ayre

Fleetwood Magic: Night of 100 Stevies
Turf Club
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 tribute? The night features four artists taking turns on the British-American band's legendary hits, including Poliça tangent Invisible Boy and electropop orgasm euphemism Tiny Deaths. While you're at home basting your 20 lb gobbler, mom and pop will be cooing lovingly to Red Daughters' countrified reworking of "Don't Stop" or gyrating unwholesomely to the sounds of Hot Roxx house DJ Jen Hughes. Even Just Perfect's ensemble folk will seem sweetly humpable when it's pressed against Nicks' impassioned lyrics. 21+, $10, 8:00 p.m. -- Jerard Fagerberg
