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

The question of whether life exists beyond our solar system has been answered in cinema by an array of alien visitors. Some are friendly, while many are hostile.

Quelle Horreur: Essential French Frights

Trylon microcinema : Every Mon., Tue. from October 6 until October 28

As the “birthplace of cinema,” France has long been home to some of the most provocative filmmakers in the history of the medium, artists whose works often express an existential depth missing from more conventional Hollywood fare. This difference in sensibilities is especially... More >>

Cirque du SoGay VI

Midtown Freewheel Bike Center : 3:00 p.m. October 4

Prepare for some "craftivism," as Saturday brings the sixth annual Cirque du SoGay, a bike scavenger hunt that showcases queer-friendly locations. "Art is celebratory, but it also inspires people to take action on things. It's a good way to engage people," says event ringleader EG Nelson. This... More >>

Powderhorn Sports - Participatory, LGBT Events, Cycling


Northrop : 8:00 p.m. October 4; 5:00 p.m. October 5

The solo is arguably the most difficult dance form to pull off. Vulnerable and exposed, the dancer offers both a portrait of herself and a mirror in which members of the audience may see some aspect of themselves reflected — or refracted. Perhaps the greatest gift a dancer can receive is... More >>

The Soap Factory : Every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until November 2

Lily Allen

The Skyway Theatre : 7:00 p.m. October 1

Lily Allen disappeared from the pop wars for about five years while starting a family, and re-emerged last spring with her third album, Sheezus. The title signaled her pop provocateur return, including as her own fiercest critic, characterizing much of her new material as "docile pop rubbish."... More >>

Shovels & Rope

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. October 3

On Swimmin' Time, the second album from Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent as Shovels & Rope, the duo further hone their critical, often delicate balance between ragged roots and a modern indie-rock sensibility. The South Carolina pair's June-and-Johnny, sweet-and-sour vocal harmonies hit a... More >>

Christopher Owens

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. October 4

San Francisco songwriter and former Girls frontman Christopher Owens's second solo album, A New Testament, functions thanks to the consistency of its many forms and facets. Within, there's rockabilly, twee pop, and a genuinely moving ballad. ("It Comes Back to You" is a slightly scaled-down... More >>

Nachito Herrera & His Cuban Friends

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant : 8:00 p.m. October 4

Nachito Herrera has taken an eventful route from Cuba to Minneapolis -- a child prodigy at 12 performing Rachmaninoff with the Cuban Symphony Orchestra, a student of Buena Vista Social Club pianist Ruben Gonzalez, and a composer, arranger, and musical director leading a number of ensemble bands...

Brooks Wheelan

Acme Comedy Co. : 8:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until October 4; 10:30 p.m. every Fri., Sat. from October 3 until October 4

If you're a fan of Saturday Night Live, then you might recognize Brooks Wheelan as one of this season's painfully underutilized new cast members. But while he may have been sparsely used on SNL before being let go, it didn't stop him from being funny. "I didn't get on a lot during SNL, so I... More >>

The Black Moon: New Works by Kate Iverson

SOOlocal: A Division of SooVAC : Daily from October 3 until November 8

Is there anything Kate Iverson can't do? Her creativity — not to mention her digital and design savvy — seemingly knows no bounds. So it was hardly surprising when, this summer, she announced on Facebook her upcoming artist residency at Tofte Lake Center via its Emerging Artists... More >>

JJ Grey & Mofro

The Varsity Theater : 7:00 p.m. October 2

Bubbling up among the skeeters and gators in the blackwater swamps and piney woods of north Florida is the greasy soul, funk, rock, and blues concoction that fuels JJ Grey & Mofro. The band has always had Southern rock leanings, and "99 Shades of Crazy" from last year's terrific The River... More >>

Joey Bada$$

Mill City Nights : 7:00 p.m. October 3

Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ has said he memorized the words to Biggie's "Hypnotize" upon its arrival in 1997. This feat wouldn't be notable at all — except that he was around two years old at the time. His hip-hop education was eventually nurtured in the best possible way: with his boys,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Music


Minneapolis Theatre Garage : 7:30 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat. until October 11; 3:00 p.m. October 5; 7:30 p.m. October 8

As a narrative device, amnesia tends to be a concept best suited for the knowingly hokey realm of daytime soap operas. That said, contemporary English playwright Moira Buffini convincingly uses a case of forgotten identity in her play Gabriel, to not only drive suspense, but raise provocative... 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...

Jungle Theater : 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until October 19; 2:00 p.m. every Sun. until October 19; 7:30 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu. until October 19

The campy Mystery of Irma Vep is a chance for a pair of actors to really show what they are made of. These two must be ready to play a bevy of characters, sometimes shifting within seconds from one role to the next. The Jungle found success with the show in 2010, featuring the high-energy...

Guthrie Theater : 7:30 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until October 19; 7:00 p.m. every Sun. until October 19

Innovative director Mary Zimmerman brings her signature style to the Guthrie this fall with The White Snake. Zimmerman earned a Tony Award for her striking version of Metamorphoses, where Ovid’s tales of transformation were played out around and in a pool built on the stage. For The White... More >>

Eating Raoul

New Century Theatre : 7:30 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat. from October 3 until October 26; 2:30 p.m. every Sun. from October 5 until October 26; 7:30 p.m. October 13

On the surface, the macabre comic musical Eating Raoul would seem to share numerous similarities with Little Shop of Horrors, another work filled with gruesome humor. Both are adapted from a cult film featuring mild-mannered characters who resort to grisly actions out of financial desperation.... 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 >>

Greg Warren

Rick Bronson's House of Comedy : 7:30 p.m. every Wed., Thu. until October 2; 9:30 p.m. October 4; 7:00 p.m. every Sat., Sun. from October 4 until October 5

For years, Greg Warren has populated his standup set with various characters drawn from his St. Louis upbringing. But these days, Warren is making the act more about himself, and merely peppering the routine with silly voices. “I think I’ve kind of gotten away from really... More >>

Bloomington Comedy


Clubhouse Jager : 10:00 p.m. every Wed. until October 22

"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 >>
