Point of Revue
Mixed Blood Theatre

Sometimes a production comes along that you just can’t pass up—the Mixed Blood Theatre’s “Point of Revue” looks like one of those. The tales of 15 Black playwrights have been woven together with the music of renowned J.D. Steele and the lyrics of Thomas W. Jones. Mixed Blood Artistic Director Jack Reuler reports that the theater sought out the best local and national writers to help put this production together, giving them license to “be outspoken.” That’s a perfect assignment for Pulse freelance contributor Dwight Hobbes, whose short play “Dues” was among those chosen to be performed by Mixed Blood’s vaudevillian ensemble. Hobbes’ piece describes how an African-American freelance journalist working at a daily newspaper sticks his neck out but forgets to cover his ass. Hobbes is in good company with this amazing lineup of talent, including writers Jevetta Steele (“Two Queen, One Castle”)—who also headlines the cast—and Eisa Davis (“Secretary of Shake”) whose story lampoons the show-biz of politics, where two dancers audition to be background entertainment for Condoleeza Rice’s stump speeches. 7:30 p.m. $11 - $28. Runs through Apr. 9. Wed. - Sat. 7:30 p.m. & Sun. 3 p.m. 1501 S. Fourth St. 612-338-6131. REBECCA THURN

St. Patrick’s Day Ceili Dance

There’s plenty to do this St. Patty’s Day, especially in St. Paul. But if you’re looking for authenticity, check out the 14th Annual Irish Ceili (pronounced kay’lee) Dance. This traditional event has grown to be the largest Irish dance in the Twin Cities. Newcomers and novices to Irish folk dance need not despair: lessons are provided, so by the end of the night you’ll be kicking and flailing like any good little Leprechaun. There’ll be plenty of grog on hand to help you get your jig on, as are other beverages and desserts. Barra, a four-piece traditional Irish band featuring fiddle, accordion, flute, guitar and vocals, will perform. The event is sponsored by the Minnesota Folk Festival. 7 p.m. $7.50/$9 ($3.25/$4.50 seniors & children 5 – 16). 383 Michigan Ave., St. Paul. 651-292-4900 or MinnesotaFolkFestival.org. NANCY SARTOR


Turf Club

The coasts obviously turn out some very well-manicured and impeccably groomed drummers who can roll off ratamacues and paradiddles quicker than a Labrador and a poodle can make a labradoodle, but those cookie-cutter Dave Weckl imitators can’t hold a candle to the crop of inventive and so-much-more-than-rudimentary drummers the Twin Cities have been producing in recent years. David King, Martin Dosh, Peter Leggett and Tim Glenn are all drummers who bring more to the drums than just hitting stuff in rhythm and you can count Brett Bullion (formerly of Tiki Obmar) among their number. His debut EP under the name Tarlton is about more than just rhythm as it draws on electronic and ambient music to create a softly but insistently undulating texture that yields up its secrets over the distance. His nearest sonic neighbors are Dosh’s and the Books’ found-sound collages, and watching this kind of music be rebuilt from the ground up in a live setting can be a real treat. With headliners The Deaf and Anna Whim. 9 p.m. $4. 21+. Corner of University & Snelling Aves., St. Paul. 651-647-0486. STEVE MCPHERSON


Billy Bragg
Fine Line Music Café

Never a man of few words, punk/folkster Billy Bragg has been writing songs and speaking out on tough social, political and cultural issues since he began his musical career in the early ’80s. Called a “stalwart guardian of the radical dissenting tradition,” Bragg holds a mirror up to local and world leaders, demanding accountability and exposing hypocritical policies. In 2002’s “The Price of Oil” Bragg states, “Saddam killed his own people / just like general Pinochet / and once upon a time both these evil men / were supported by the U.S.A. / and whisper it, even Bin Laden / once drank from America’s cup / just like that election down in Florida / this shit doesn’t all add up / it’s all about the price of oil.” In support of Volume I, a nine-disc box set of his prolific musical career that includes four early releases and two DVDs, Bragg’s embarked on a lengthy U.S. tour that lands him at the Fine Line this weekend. Volume I chronicles his prolific career as a singer-songwriter-cum-political-activist. With Jill Sobule. 8 p.m. $23/$26. 21+. 318 N. First Ave., Mpls. 612-338-8100. SARTOR

Carei Thomas
Weisman Art Museum

The HOME House Project is currently on display at the Weisman Art Mu-seum. Centered on the issue of affordable housing, the exhibit features award-winning architectural designs for affordable single-family homes from a competition organized by the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, N.C. One hundred innovative design approaches—drawings, scale models and building sections—that use sustainable materials, technologies and methods are showcased. In conjunction with this exhibit, Carei Thomas returns to the Weisman for his sixth annual Spring Celebration concert. His highly inventive pieces employ abstract elements, drawing on influences as diverse as Eastern ragas, John Cage and John Lee Hooker. Thomas’ modus operandi also involves using various themes as starting points, to “engage different aspects and experiences in life. When I write a piece I like to attach it to something; it might be a story, a person, a picture, an episode, a planet, a disease ...” For this gig, Carei Thomas Neighborhood will include Douglas Ewart, reeds and “meta-constructions;” Julieanne Ravens, harps, piano and Roland synthesizer; Paul Cantrell, accordian and piano; Gary Schulte, violin and viola; Steven Goldstein, laptop and electronic sequencing; and “guest poet” Don Minczeski. 3 p.m. $10/$7. 333 E. River Rd., Mpls. 612-625-9641. SARTOR & DAN EMERSON

Omaur Bliss
Triple Rock Social Club

When I got Omaur Bliss’ disc in the mail back in the fall, I found it to be an unexpected treat, blending soul, rap and jazzy live hip-hop into an eclectic blend that never seemed forced. This impression was only reinforced when I got to experience the full live band treatment at the Cabooze a few weeks back. Dressed nattily in a dapper hat and suit, Bliss’ set wasn’t so much a collection of songs as a tightly wound experience. The brief limelight that nu-soul enjoyed in the late ’90s with acts like Erykah Badu and D’Angelo has never really gone out (as evidenced by more recent efforts like Common’s Electric Circus) but Bliss’ disc and his hellified live show provide ample evidence that the genre’s alive and kicking. Opener Black Blondie is the new project of Sarah White, who was last seen providing soulful vocals and rhymes for local live hip-hoppers Traditional Methods. With Kai Swivel and Doug Mackabee. 10 p.m. $5. 21+. 629 Cedar Ave., Mpls. 612-333-7499. JEFFREY JAMES GIANTVALLEY


Jason Collett
Seventh St. Entry

A quick story: A few weeks ago, I had a dream. I couldn’t recall what had happened in the dream, but I woke up with a melody in my head and a set of disjointed lyrics. It had some gorgeous full-blown harmonies and a great hook, ambling along the side of an open road, mid-summer, somewhere on the Great Plains. The kind of bittersweet, blue-sky chorus that the Jayhawks would have written in their heyday. Was it a Jayhawks’ song? Could I possibly have written it in my sleep? No such luck. A week later I was listening to Jason Collett’s latest, Idols of Exile, when I heard a familiar hook: “We all lose one another/ along the way …” Point being, this latecomer to the Broken Social Scene family writes some songs that stick in your head. His vibe generally is akin to the Band—another set of Canadians mining the music of the American South—although that doesn’t keep him from turning out pop gems like “I’ll Choose the Sun.” I’ve always thought that if I ever left the Twin Cities, I’d want to go somewhere with a similarly structured and fertile music scene like Seattle or Austin. I think I’ll have to add Toronto to the list. 8 p.m. $10. 21+. 29 N. 7th St., Mpls. 612-332-1775. MCPHERSON
