Live Music Venues

When it comes to live music, there's something for everyone in our neighborhood. 

Some of the venues are season specific.  Others may be nightly, weekly, or special events you need to watch for:

Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board's "Music in the Parks" concert series.

Mill City Museum's "Mill City Live" series. 

The Guthrie offers single night engagements - check their site frequently for updates.

The Aster Cafe at 125 SE Main Street in St. Anthony Main now offers live music Wednesday thru Saturday.

In addition to recitals, the MacPhail Center for Music hosts special engagements such as the Spotlight Series.  This series features MacPhail faculty with special guests, providing an intimate listening experience for lovers of classical, jazz and opera. 

The Southern Theater occasionally features music. 

Call or check online for Grumpy's live music schedule.

The Red Stag Supperclub has music several nights a week.

Refer to the Day Block Brewing website for live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Check out The Crooked Pint Ale House for their live music calendar.

We strive to list as many of these shows in the Events section as possible, but inevitably we might miss a few.  If you're aware of an upcoming show that is missing from the Events section, please let us know.
