Fort Wilson Riot
Nomad World Pub
For those who have been following Fort Wilson Riot and their creation of five-part song “Idigaragua” with fascination, you’ll be excited to be in on the first public performance of the newly completed song in its entirety at the Nomad tonight. If you haven’t heard this song, or only know the pirated part, it’s a rock opera masterpiece of sublime beauty and terror. Since its beginnings as one page of lyrics from a Paul Bowles short story to tonight (three years in the making), it is truly an amazing song—intelligent and lyrically potent with masterful, surprising transitions and fantastic vocals and instrumentation. Celebrate this completed live rock opera masterpiece before FWR hits the recording studio. With Trimmed Hedges, a surprise new favorite of mine featuring lead singer/keyboardist, Dom, the night promises live surprises for all. Trimmed Hedges will be performing their EP Abandoned Cities in its entirety—a refreshingly soulful CD with experimental instrumentation, indie rock, metallic and alt.country tinges. Another new band to watch is Dance Band, Nomad’s resident Thursday night band who will make you jiggle in the middle (set). 9 p.m. 21+. 501 Cedar Ave., Mpls. 612-338-6424. CYN COLLINS

Six Strings and Chicken Wings
Bryant-Lake Bowl
God bless chicken wings. They’re delicious! Especially when combined with creamy and delicious sauces for dipping. Make ’em organic, and they’re even better! Now, I may be flying too close to the sun here, but if you then combine those organic chicken wings and their sauces with some killer acoustic music, you’d be on to something. Enter the Bryant-Lake Bowl, who are assuming all the wax-melting risk, and presenting a selection of wings for your delectation with performances by Duluth’s own roots and blues master Charlie Parr and our very own old-timey heroes, The Get Up Johns. Parr grabbed Minnesota Music Awards for Best Blues Artist and Best Blues Recording for his Eclectone-released Rooster, two awards he richly deserved. It’ll also be great to catch The Get Up Johns in such an intimate setting; their novel approach of setting up a single microphone to capture both vocals and instruments makes for a unique concert-going experience, but in larger spaces, the sound can get lost. Hopefully the sound of people munching on wings won’t be sufficient to drown them out at this show. 10 p.m. $8. 810 W. Lake St., Mpls. 612-825-8949. STEVE McPHERSON

Paul Metsa’s Holiday on Ice Cubes
Columbia Grounds Coffee Shop
This Northeast Minneapolis holiday tradition promises a good time while doing good. Paul Metsa is a 30-year veteran of the Minnesota music scene—electrified and acoustic, he’s been part of the Cats Under The Stars band, as well as a solo performer. His Holiday on Ice Cubes show has Metsa sharing the stage with a number of surprise guests. Entry can be had for a donation of non-perishable food items for the Northeast Seniors Food Shelf and/or cash. 7 – 10 p.m. 3101 Central Ave. NE, Mpls. 612-781-7873. LYDIA HOWELL

Koerner & Glover
400 Bar
Spider John Koerner and Tony Glover perform an encore winter weekly residency on the West Bank, just like they used to, every Thursday through the end of January at the 400 Bar. Stomping and wailing out the blues, Koerner and Glover are as vital and strong as ever. Shake off those winter blahs with lots more blues, rags and hollers. In the 1970s Koerner and Glover were West Bank staples—Spider John Koerner is legendary for his guitar playing and impeccable timing, Tony Glover for bluesy, soulful harp playing. Today the duo continues to draw and awe folks of all ages. Since their early ’60s chance meeting when the two played together at Dave Ray’s in New York, to recording their debut Blues, Rags and Hollers album in 1963, Koerner and Glover have been an instrumental force, influencing musicians today, and playing old country blues and traditional folk with uncanny skill and style. Experience live what these cats have to offer—not only in spirited skill and cheesy humor, but also in rarely heard authenticity and soul. 8 p.m. $5. 18+. 400 Cedar Ave., Mpls. 612-332-2903.

Drum/Dance Circle
Cedar Cultural Center
The last time I had the privilege of witnessing a really good drum circle in action, it was on a little-used bridge traversing the Mississippi River on a balmy summer night. I kept worrying that someone was going to slip off the bridge into the flowing water, and that there was no official safety plan in place for that slim possibility. So I suggested to no one in particular that we would all agree to throw a few congas (as life buoys) into the river if that happened. A few people glanced my way curiously when I mentioned this, thinking I-don’t-know-what. Thankfully no one fell, and I have my fear of unsecured heights to blame for my panicky concerns. The winter solstice drum/dance circle happening at a West Bank venue poses no threat to acrophobes, though, and I assume the fire dancers will have a safety procotol they follow. And what better way to celebrate the winter solstice and darkest day of the year than with drums and fire? Storied Boiled in Lead drummer Robin “Adnan” Anders and other percussionists (bring your drum!) make rhythms for Illumination Fire Dancers, and Mystic Toyz jugglers evoke pagan spirits on the longest night of the year. 6:30 p.m. $10. 416 Cedar Ave., Mpls. 612-338-2674. SID PRANKE

Matthew Santos
Acadia Cafe
If you like the witty poetic grit you get with the likes of, say, Tom Waits or Dr. John, you’re going to love the soulfully wizened Matthew Santos. Not that he imitates either one, just that he’s in the same bag—an uncommonly gifted, sort of weirdnik troubadour who pulls off some of strangest musical ideas as easily as most cats play a three-chord folk song. And if you want to hear some truly fine scatting, check out his cut “Shadows in a Shoebox,” a swing-ballad with engaging abandon, impassioned urgency and, in general, cast iron chops (you can hear it online at Indie911). Being as he hangs his hat in Chicago, this gig will be a choice opportunity to see him live. You can also catch him Saturday night when he slides into the 400 Bar to jam with his brother Nathan Santos of 2 Wurds. 7 p.m. $5. 1931 Nicollet Ave. S., Mpls. 612-874-8702. DWIGHT HOBBES

Triple Rock Social Club
In a battle of monosyllabically-monikered experimentalists, Martin Dosh and a pile of gear will take on Andrew Broder and his pals. It’s sure to be a knockdown, dragout match, given the history these two share. Dosh has provided drums for Fog on occasion, while Broder has provided guitar on some of Dosh’s albums, but don’t mistake that for weakness. These guys are out for blood. Expect 15-yard facemask penalties and more fines than the NBA handed out for that brawl at Madison Square Garden during the Knicks/Nuggets game the other night. Seriously. I know what you’re saying: Fog plays angular and spikily beautiful music with intellectual lyrics, while Dosh crafts cascading and complex tracks like tinker toys out of tiny, fractured pieces—there’s no way two such sensitive and empathetic souls could battle to the death on the Triple Rock’s dance floor. Fine, be that way: Just know that First Ave doesn’t have a monopoly on steel cage matches when it comes to local venues doubling as wrestling stadiums. With Mel Gibson and the Pants, Tarantula Skulls and DJ Ghost Band spinning between sets. 9 p.m. $8. 18+. 629 Cedar Ave., Mpls. 612-333-7499. STEVE McPHERSON

2 Wurds
400 Bar
2 Wurds come tough with swaggering funk at its absolute finest. Setting them apart from even some of the best around is the inventive material by main songwriter Nathan Santos and tasty arrangements by the whole band: Santos (vocals and rhythm guitar), Dennis Kamp (guitar), Mike Vechell (sax), Clarence “Nate” Cole (bass) and Brad Hartung (drums). When you look at their backgrounds, it’s not much of a surprise. Kamp, who also plays with the hip-hop outfit Project 13, has gigged with the likes of Desdamona, Carnage, Capaciti and more (it’s a long list). Cole is formerly of Filthy Divine and does double duty with Kymara. In fact, the only non-veteran is Hartung, who has no trouble holding his own. From the first note to the last, these guys ain’t nothin’ nice. See for yourself—just be sure to bring some dancin’ shoes, because they’ll truly make you want to get up on the proverbial good foot. And, if that ain’t enough, Dessa from Doomtree will be sitting in for a few numbers. 8 p.m. $5. 400 Cedar Ave. S., Mpls. 612-332-2903. DWIGHT HOBBES

City on the Make
Nomad World Pub
City on the Make comes off a little like Tom Waits, a little like the Black Keys, and a lot like a greasy grubby bucket of something. There may be a little G. Love and Special Sauce going on there, too; after all, the drums pulse and ring like hip-hop. But the vocals are overdriven yowls straight from the gutter. Taken altogether, it’s an unorthodox sound, but one that pays dividends on party-appropriate jams like “Howlin’ at a Silver Moon,” which you can check out at their MySpace page. Its “Ah-woo-HA!” chorus is impossible to do justice to in print, and I’m willing to bet it’s even more invigorating live than streamed as a lo-fi version from everybody’s favorite social networking site. Part of the Minneseries. 9 p.m. Free. 21+. 501 Cedar Ave. S., Mpls. 612-338-6424. STEVE McPHERSON
