Equinox Series: Drug Rugs

SOOlocal: A Division of SooVAC : Daily until September 20

When people go dumpster diving, few are presumably looking for textiles. But that is exactly the kind of kind of find that pleases Lindsay Rhyner.

Pioneers And Soldiers Memorial Cemetery : 7:00 p.m. September 24; 7:00 p.m. October 8

The War on Drugs

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue. from September 22 until September 23

Philly rockers the War on Drugs have done a lot of growing up. Their latest, Lost in the Dream, is a mirage-rock masterpiece, with signposts of early Springsteen (including sax!) blown out to practically bankrupt proportions. The album's first single, "Red Eyes," is stunning with its cathartic... More >>

Pokey LaFarge

The Cedar Cultural Center : 7:00 p.m. September 21

Pokey LaFarge hails from St. Louis, "just a plain old Midwestern boy just gettin' by on central time." But his origin is the only thing plain about LaFarge, who nevertheless embraces "old" as in the broad swath of vintage styles he inhabits as if near-on 100 years were lopped off the calendar....

Minneapolis (Downtown) Music

Lizzo & Caroline Smith

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. from September 26 until September 27

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 Music

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.

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...

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 campy Mystery of Irma Vep is a chance for a pair of actors to really show what they are made of.

The Automatic Message

Instinct Art Gallery : Daily until November 1

In the best abstract art, the personal is universal, the abstraction an archetype, and simplicity a statement of complexity. How the artist’s psyche plays into this methodology is the subject of Instinct Gallery’s “The Automatic Message,” which takes a cue from that... More >>

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 >>

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.
