Kingdom of Ghosts

@ First Avenue

Already sick to death of the ubiquitous annual holiday anthems drooling out of store sound systems, elevators and office radios? Here’s your musical solution: Four, yep, count ‘em, four, kick-ass garage-rock powerhouses will take over the hallowed boards of the Entry stage tonight: The Bloodshot (celebrating the recent release of their new album, Straight Up), The Black Leather Meanies (punk rock with a sense of humor), Shotgun Dwelling (a thrashing trio who’s been known to cover Motorhead), and the one and only Kingdom Of Ghosts. The brain-child of former Glenrustles drummer-singer/guitarist Glen Mattson, KOG is a powerhouse trio (Keith St. Louis on bass, Mike Edwards on drums) that lays down Johnny Thunders-via-The Ramones heartbreak garage rock in the grand tradition of their fallen heroes. The band’s latest album, Shakedown, continues and builds on their usual themes of love gone wrong, loser anthems and meat-and-potatoes philosophy. It’s not just about the growling guitars, menacing sneers and howling vocals—as the more-sensitive-than-you’d-guess Mattson once told me, “Did you ever notice no one ever talks about the tender/sad/sweet sentiments ... it’s always the hard, fast, glue-sniffin’, beat-on-the-brat, hey-ho, let’s go side ...?” Come down and hear the sentimental side of kick-ass rock ’n’ roll tonight. Highly recommended. 9 p.m. $5. 21+. 701 First Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388. Tom Hallett


“Imitation of Loud”
@ The Turf Club

The latest in a series of Wednesday night concerts (“O.G. presents”) curated by local music scenester Oren Goldberg, “Imitation of Loud” puts a fresh spin on some of the area’s finest rock ’n’ roll talent by severing them from the safety of their bandmates and forcing them to go it alone on stage. Featuring artists who usually play in bands from both the raucous (Malachi Constant) and chilled-out (Jessy Greene) ends of the musical spectrum, with a good bit in between (Hockey Night). Hearing these songwriters test out new songs in their beginning stages or re-envision their band-centered tracks as solo endeavors should be a treat. The night features short solo sets by members of Ela, Askeleton, Malachi Constant, Hockey Night, Martin Devaney, Jessy Greene and Special Guests. 9 p.m. $4. 21+. The Corner of University and Snelling Avenues, St. Paul. 651-647-0486. Rob van Alstyne

Acoustic Showcase
@ The Hexagon Bar

Yet another great free gig at what is quickly becoming the new “it” music venue in town, thanks to the intrepid efforts of club booker Chris Dorn. Whether you’re looking to kick back to the mellow cocktail-friendly grooves of the recently Pulse-featured Pete Hofmann, pump your fist to classic rock acolyte Chris “Little Man” Perricelli, or get a headstart on checking out the new material Erik Appelwick’s been working up outside of his gig co-leading the Twin Cities current hottest act The Olympic Hopefuls, there’ll be no shortage of quality acoustic songs floating in the air at the always laid-back confines of the Hex. Featuring performances by Erik Appelwick (Vicious Vicious, Olympic Hopefuls), Pete Hofmann, Little Man, Anton Ryan and more. 9 p.m. Free. 21+. 2600 27th Ave., Mpls. 612-722-3454. van Alstyne



@ Dunn Bros.

Enjoy the moody sounds of the Sparrows this week over a cup ‘a joe at Dunn Bros. in Minneapolis. This diverse group of the musicians—an Iowan bassist on drums, a Venezuelan pop singer on bass and a cellist—infuse their tunes with just enough of a Latino edge to keep your toes tapping and your hips swaying. The trio of Reid Kruger, Billy Franklin and Jonathan Kaiser has only been playing together since the beginning of the year, but their sound is accomplished, and a new EP is on the way. 8 p.m. Dunn Bros., 3348 Hennepin Ave. S., Mpls. Noah Kiddons

Mason Jennings, Haley Bonar
@ The 400 Bar

Mason Jennings, the Twin Cities current established singer/songwriter star, is performing a three-show hometown run with Minnesota’s next big-folk-star-in-the-making, Haley Bonar, handling the opening duties. All three gigs have sold out in terms of advance tix, but a number of tickets are being held at the door to be snatched on a first come, first served basis – so don’t dilly dally! Expect Jennings to lean heavily on material from this year’s mostly guitar-and-voice-driven outing, Use Your Voice, while Bonar will likely be spotlighting material from her forthcoming third album (rumored to be released on an as yet undetermined major label). So whether you’re looking for chilled-out good time acoustic grooves (Jennings), or icier balladry with the occasional creepy organ driven tune (Bonar), there should be songwriting talent to burn on display at the 400 Bar all weekend long. 8 p.m. $15 adv/ $18 door. 21+. 400 Cedar Ave. S., Mpls. 612-332-2903. Also Sat., 12/18, 8 p.m. $15 adv/ $18 door. 21+. And Sun., 12/19, 7 p.m. $15 adv/$18 door. All Ages. van Alstyne

Basement Apartment
@ The Turf Club

This rare live outing by Basement Apartment gives local music fans the chance to catch one of the Twin Cities best indie-pop groups not too fond of stepping on local stages. Since releasing their stellar sophomore album, Transistor, back at the beginning of July, the band led by former Pilot Light front man Vincent Caro and his breezy dead-ringer-for-Elliott-Smith-voice has gigged sparingly. Which is a shame, considering Transistor’s one of the overlooked treasures this year in local music. Casting away the tech heavy computer stylings of Basement Apartment’s debut EP, Interstellar, Transistor is a more direct and rockin’ light pop affair, heavily influenced by early Caro favorites like the Byrds (the jangly “Into My World”) and Neil Young (the stinging “Dim The Lights”). Here’s hoping 2005 will see more active gigging by the band. With Luke’s Angels, Worn Out Shoes. 9 p.m. $4. 21+. The Corner of University and Snelling Avenues, St. Paul. 651-647-0486. van Alstyne

The Bleeding Hickeys
@ The Triple Rock Social Club

The Bleeding Hickeys’ sound matches the intensity of their name. A fiery three-fourths female garage-rock beast (three ladies with drummer Nicholas Shuminsky providing the testosterone), the Bleeding Hickeys are now set to unveil their debut full-length audio assault, Lovers and Haters, Unite! Tracks like “Road Kill” showcase the fact that BH are true firebrands in the frequently stale and tasteless garage-rock genre. With an expertly thumping rhythm section and time-tested guitar licks at their disposal, the Hickey’s are ready to suck the punk rock life right out of you and spit it back in your face. Consider yourself warned … With Faux Jean, Red Satyrs and Half Fiction. 9 p.m. $6. 21+. 629 Cedar Ave S., Mpls. 612-333-7399. Nathan Dean


Le Cirque Rouge
@ First Avenue & The Turf Club

With another Minnesota winter knocking at the door, we could all use a little somethin’ to warm our bones. Enter local burlesque troupe, Le Cirque Rogue de Gus, just in time with a special holiday show that’s sure to heat you up (or at least make you blush). Featuring a variety of sexy Christmas songs, skits and dance numbers, Le Cirque is also unveiling its “gender bending and scintillating” rendition of The Nutcracker Suite—burlesque style, of course. Amy Buchanan directs and stars in the production, along with her talented troupe of sultry performers and an exceptional house band. The group has a standing Saturday night gig at the Loring Pasta Bar in Dinkytown, but the special holiday shows can be seen at First Avenue and the Turf Club. Purchase tickets at the door. $6. Fri. Dec. 17, First Avenue, 701 1st Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388; Thu. Dec. 23, Turf Club, University & Snelling Ave., St. Paul, 651-647-0486. Nancy Sartor


Milton “Soupy” Schindler benefit
@ Patrick’s Cabaret

More than a dozen Twin Cities musicians will perform Saturday to celebrate the life and legacy of local singer, teacher and blues harp player Milton “Soupy” Schindler, and to raise funds for Schindler’s family after his sudden death earlier this year. Schindler had played blues and folk in local clubs from the time he was 17, and his band became a mainstay of Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” radio show. Performers at the concert will include Papa John Kolstad, Clint Hoover, ex-Paul Butterfield Blues Band pianist and Minneapolis native Mark Naftalin, Quick Grits and Live Food and Music. The suggested donation for admission is $10, and a compilation CD featuring selected cuts from Schindler’s four-decade career will be on sale for $10. 7 - 11 p.m. Patrick’s Cabaret, 2010 Minnehaha Ave., Mpls. For more information call Dick Kronick, 612-825-1605 or 612-849-1605 or e-mail richardkronick Brian Kaller

“Bring the Troops Home” Rally

@ Hennepin & Lagoon

What better way to give the troops some Christmas cheer this holiday season than to let them know you want them home? With the occupation escalating and more than 1,200 Americans and 100,000 Iraqis already killed, the Iraq Peace Coalition will hold a pro-peace rally this Saturday in Uptown, as hundreds of similar organizations rally in cities across the nation. Their slogan, “Bring the Troops Home!” will remind onlookers to remember others during their holiday shopping. Noon. Library Plaza, Hennepin & Lagoon, Mpls. For more information call the Anti-War Committee 612 379-3899, the Twin Cities Peace Campaign-Focus on Iraq 612 522-1861, Veterans for Peace 612 821-9141 or Women Against Military Madness 612 827-5364.

Ballet of the Dolls’ “Cinderella and the Glass Slipper”
@ McKnight Theater

For many folks, the holidays conjure up more blues than merriment. Instead of over-indulging your credit card or spiking your eggnog with Prozac, why not lift your spirits with a healthy dose of theatrical fantasy? This year Ballet of the Dolls has outdone itself in “Cinderella and the Glass Slipper.” Artistic director Myron Johnson and company have taken the familiar fairy tale and embellished it with vibrant costumes and flawless choreography like only the Dolls can. Stephanie Fuller is the delicate and hopeful Ella (Cinderella), but it’s Robert Skafte, as the wicked stepmother, who steals the show. Donned in a royal blue wig, chunky heels and leopard-print tights, his larger-than-life portrayal of the wicked Sylvia allows us to laugh in the face of evil. Simply splendid. Through December 31. $30 - $75. Tue. – Sat. 8 p.m.; Sun. 2 p.m.; Sun. Dec. 26, 2 & 7 p.m.; Fri. Dec. 31, 9 p.m. McKnight Theater, Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, 345 Washington St., St. Paul. 651-224-4222. Sartor
