Myth : 7:00 p.m. October 31

The Wytches

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. November 1

Mike Mictlan (album release)

7th St. Entry : 9:00 p.m. November 1

Mike Mictlan's massive "CLAPP'D" is about as heavy a lead single as you can get. The Doomtree MC laces the droning beat with a slick-tongued dissection of modern violence that's nonetheless cogent as a club favorite. He's mixed styles since his early days living in L.A., and his latest record,... More >>

Minneapolis (Downtown) Music


7th St. Entry : 7:30 p.m. November 2

Much of Alix, the fourth album from Generationals duo Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, is lighter than air, synth-infused indie pop whose gossamer, fragmented melodies and low-simmering rhythms seem in constant danger of floating away.

St. Lucia

First Avenue : 8:00 p.m. November 8

The synth waves that cascade through St. Lucia’s billowy confections glitter with the blinding intensity of the sun reflecting off the Caribbean. Add a sleek cigarette boat skimming through the surf, the ghosts of Crockett and Tubbs, blustery dance beats, pop hooks that could snare Moby... More >>
