Lloyd Cole
@ The Fine Line Music Café

Twenty years on from when he first hit the scene to great U.K. acclaim with his jangly rock band the Commotions, Lloyd Cole has managed to age better than nearly all of his fellow ’80s Brit-rock royalty. His solo career during the ’90s saw him pursue album length collaborations with the likes of Matthew Sweet and Jill “I Kissed A Girl” Sobule, but his latest, Music In A Foreign Language, is a severely stripped down solo tour de force. Although there’s occasional guitar accompaniment by former Commotion mate Neil Clark, it’s Cole (and his low-pitched weary croon) who is clearly the center of attention. Elegant finger-picked acoustic tunes make up the entirety of the record and, admittedly, Music is somewhat lacking in variety. Cole makes up for the uniform musical tone of the songs by coming up with consistently inventive playing and a set of lyrics mordant enough to bring a smile to Richard Thompson. 8 p.m. $11 adv/ $13 door. 21+. 318 First Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8100.

2nd Anniversary Party
@ The Rosalux Art Gallery

Art is essentially the process of divination, the culling of either the beautiful or the hideous from the intervening muck and the manipulation of making what’s real even realer. Is “realer” even a word? Of course not. Is reality measured by degree? I don’t know. How can one thing be more real than the other? Oh wow, man. These are like... just some of the ominous questions that art either wittingly or unwittingly strives to answer.

Celebrating their second year of existence is Rosalux Gallery, whose swelling ranks continue to offer diverse snapshots of the ongoing apocalypse far off the browbeaten path of homogeneity. The past two years have provided a colorful past for a colorful cast, so what better way to celebrate surviving some often catastrophic moments than by saying thanks for all the support. The event, entitled “Green,” will feature work from Rosalux founder, Terrence Payne, Amelia Bierwald-Low, Tara Costello, Shawn McNulty, Kate Pabst and nearly twenty other artist/members, all of whose tireless work has made this night possible. Since these folks realize an event should be more than just looking at stuff, they’ve cooked up quite a little wing-ding. Included in the festivities will be an art raffle where many lucky, art loving souls could win pieces of original Rosalux art. Raffle tickets are five bucks a pop. Starting at 10:30, things get sonic with Brad Senne, the Dan Buettner Band and the mighty yet modest Kid Dakota (performing a solo set). And as always, refreshments will be served. Black turtlenecks and berets not required. 7 p.m. Free. 1011 Washington Ave. S., Mpls. 612-747-3942. (Donny Doane)

Clumsy Lovers
@ The 7th St. Entry

You know it’s been raining so much lately (anyone else though of erecting an ark and naming it Noah II?) that a band like the Clumsy Lovers would feel right at home. Hailing from the ever-drizzly locale of Vancouver, the Lovers’ creative and sass-heavy blend of bluegrass and Celtic rhythms makes for an interesting collision of sounds and a great listen. The band’s quick tempos and gospel-styled choruses have been known in the past to get crowds uncontrollably clapping along. With a disgustingly wonderful combination of percussion, harmonica and banjo, the Clumsy Lovers boast a level of gusto and energy that would make every Irish band proud. With Carbon Leaf. 9 p.m. $7. 21+. 701 First Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388.(Louis Lenzmeier)

@ The Turf Club

Mandrew is the latest local offering from Martin Devaney’s all things Americana imprint Eclectone Records. Featuring First Prize Killer guitarist Mike Andrew sliding into the front man role with backing from his FPK bandmates (and additional contributions from Twin Cities indie-rock stalwarts like Work of Saws’ Brock Davis and Walker Kong’s Jeremy Ackerman), Mandrew is a laid-back summertime pop record not too far removed from FPK’s Powdery Parade, which means that it will be this year’s perfect backing soundtrack to back porch beer swilling. That being said, the record is still surprisingly varied and ambitious for being the product of a relaxed home recording project. “Pick Up Your Floor” is a convincing spin on the kind of slight yet insidiously catchy indie-pop the Shins are riding to mass success. Elsewhere the band tries its hand at spacey country waltzes (“When Charity Fails”) and fuzzed-out stomp rock (“The Classic Clues”) with great success. In the end Mandrew is yet another instantly enjoyable yet surprisingly durable roots-flavored pop album from the Eclectone Records stable.With Romantica, Martin Devaney. 9 p.m. $5. 21+. The Corner of Snelling & University, St. Paul. 651-647-0486. (Nathan Dean)

Juneteenth Festival

@ Theodore Wirth Park

On June 19, more than 60,000 people will celebrate the 19th annual Twin Cities Juneteenth Festival and 139 years of freedom. This year’s theme is “We are Family – We Are One.” The event recognizes the June 19, 1865, freeing of slaves in Galveston, Texas, 2 1/2 years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in January 1863, and has grown from a few people celebrating in the basement of the Oak Park Community Center to the largest gathering of its kind in the Upper Midwest. The festivities at this year’s Juneteenth celebration will be wide and varied, featuring a 7 a.m. pancake breakfast, a 10 a.m. parade beginning at Plymouth and Penn, plenty of food and entertainment, a wellness center, arts village and freedom marketplace, a tennis tournament and read-a-thon and a shoot around with members of the Minnesota Lynx. 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Free. Theodore Wirth Park, 1339 Theodore Wirth Parkway, Mpls. 612-238-FREE (3733). Visit JuneteenthMinnesota.org for more info. (Brian Kaller)

John Beach 2003
@ Intermedia Arts

“John Beach 2003” is a short documentary film about John Beach, legendary keyboard artist and sideman for Willie Murphy, Joel Johnson and the late Dave Ray. He wrote music and verses for Bonnie Raitt, and he recorded with Lazy Bill Lucas. His pounding piano style became the bedrock on which the rock and roll bar scene on the West Bank was built in the seventies and eighties. It is still alive. This beautiful, aging hipster is still smoking. Catch him playing Blue Mondays at the Viking with Willie Murphy, with the Joel Johnson band at various venues, on Tuesdays at Stardust Lanes and on Wednesdays at Lisa’s in Carver. See the film Saturday night. There will be a discussion and reception afterwards. 8 p.m. $5. Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Ave. S., Mpls. 612-871-4444. (Ed Felien)

Natalie Van Vorst Memorial Concert
@ The Garage

This past April the Twin Cities lost one of its most passionate music lovers when Natalie Van Vorst sadly met an untimely demise in the St. Paul Caves. She was just 17. Natalie was a strong presence at the Twin Cities sole bright spot for consistently all ages live shows, volunteering frequently to help bands sell merchandise and generally do whatever was needed to help keep shows running smoothly at the Garage. She will be sorely missed and a lineup of fine young local talent has been assembled to pay tribute to her. With Down and Above, Sue Generis, Johnny Rook, Tinted, The Semester and Cauldera performing on the main stage. Autumn Dervish, Charin, Unauthorized Personal and Kontradiction performing in the Lounge. 5 p.m. No cover ($5 suggested donation). All Ages. 75 Civic Center Parkway, Burnsville. 952-895-4664. (Dean)


Friends Like These
@ The 7th St. Entry

Fast-rising local rockers Friends Like These are back from a recent national tour and ready to rock the hometown crowd with some new tunes as they celebrate the release of their new four song EP, Deliver Us From Evil. Kicking off the short proceedings with a bang, FLT wastes no time kicking ass on the roaring shagadelic opener “7th Street Queen” (for which they enlisted formerly local legend Craig Finn of Lifter Puller fame to drop a patented snarly verse). Clearly a much tighter band than the one that created the brilliantly shambolic I Love You back in 2002, the band has transformed themselves into a true power-pop force as evidenced by tracks like the hard-partying-girl-in-trouble-anthem “Karen.” This EP (clocking in at just under 16 glorious minutes) is the ultimate tease - I demand more! Thankfully a full-length should be ready to drop by this fall, at which point I will be looking to coronate Friends Like These as the Twin Cities answer to Teenage Fanclub.With Bridge Club, Thunder in the Valley, Tapes ‘n’ Tapes. 9 p.m. $6. 21+. 701 First Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388.(van Alstyne)

Misplaced Music.org Launch Party
@ The Uptown Bar

As everyone who doesn’t live under a rock and has functional ears already knows - commercial radio these days sucks. Thankfully a group of ambitious Minnesotans has decided not to take the assault on our ears lying down and are doing something proactive to change the sorry state of the airwaves. Misplacedmusic.org is a recently launched net radio co-op website playing all Minnesota indie-tunes all the time. Sound sweet? Yeah, I thought so too. An officially sanctioned station (Congress has these badasses on file) Misplaced Music needs everyone who gives a damn about real music to help them get off the ground and start kicking corporate radio’s overgrown ass. Hence this awesome local rock show-case, which doubles as a fundraiser for the Co-op, as you can see, have enlisted some mighty fine local talent for the cause. With Josh Aran, Coach Said Not To, Bill Mike, Romantica, A Whisper in the Noise. 9 p.m. $5. 21+. 3018 Hennepin Ave. S., Mpls. 612-823-4719. Visit MisplacedMusic.org for more info. (van Alstyne)


@ The 400 Bar

If indie-rock has a Mick Jagger, it’s Britt Daniel. For nearly a decade he’s been driving his Austin, Texas band Spoon slowly but surely to the top of the indie-rock heap thanks to a swaggering charisma and stiff upper lip that’s seen all too rarely in the “woe-is-me-look how-meekly-I-stare-at-my-shoes” world of indie-rock Simply put, Daniel is one bad-ass motherfucker (and surely the toughest dude walking the streets named Britt). Spoon’s sleek spy-movie rock continues to evolve, embracing a less-is-more and increasingly taut streamlined sound with each of their releases. Their next recording endeavor, tentatively titled Beast and Dragon Are Adored, won’t be dropping until early next year, but you can get a sneak peak of it at the 400 as the band will be debuting much of the material in the live setting. Those feeling extra anxious for a taste of new Spoon tunes can head on over to their official website (www.spoontheband.com) to sample two mp3 demos from the upcoming record. Indie-rock is many things, but rarely sexy, which makes the downright lascivious grooves and cocksure strutting of Spoon worth catching whenever possible. With Thee Shams. 9 p.m. $12. 21+. 400 Cedar Ave. S., Mpls. 612-332-2903. (van Alstyne)
