Juneteenth, Pride, and Loads More in Your Complete Concert Calendar: June 11-17

Pretty much all the live music you can catch in the Twin Cities this week.|

Tired of high ticket prices? Try Porchfest.

With Pride and Juneteenth celebrations underway this weekend, plus multiple block parties and summer music series, you'll want to doublecheck Event Horizon to make sure I didn't miss any musical offerings. Me, I'll be out of town till the 18th, so get out there and enjoy all this for me, wontcha?

  • Orville Peck with Durand Jones + Debbii Dawson @ ArmoryOn almost exactly this date two years ago, Orville Peck came to First Avenue for back-to-back sold-out nights, and, at the time, we told ya “good luck seeing him in a room that small again.” The masked country singer has released a scant seven songs since, all duets; on May’s Stampede, Vol. I, he warbles alongside Willie Nelson for a cover of “Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond of Each Other” and lends his tenor to a perfectly adequate version of Elton John’s “Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting).” No matter—his star has continued to rise over a relatively laid-back two years, and now he’s at the much bigger Armory, a glow up that will make sense to anyone who’s seen the charismatic crooner perform before. At an Orville Peck show, crying and dancing are encouraged in equal measure, enthusiastic fans are handed roses from the stage, and you might even find yourself unexpectedly shedding a tear to a Replacements cover. With Durand Jones and Debbii Dawson

  • 10th Annual Kingfield PorchFest @ KingfieldAt the risk of sounding like a sappy, grandiose townie, these are the types of community events that make Minneapolis the greatest city on the face of the Earth. The idea is simple: Recruit a giant bill of talented local musicians—from punk to Afrobeat to singer-songwriter—and let ‘em play from porch fronts all over the Kingfield neighborhood. (Residents are also asked to volunteer their yards/stoops/driveways as performance spaces, so it’s not strictly a porch affair.) As an attendee, your only duty is to wander around, soak up the sounds, and feel like you’re part of something beautiful.—Jay Boller

  • Stone Arch Bridge Festival @ Stone Arch BridgeThe St. Anthony Main side of the Stone Arch Bridge is closed through spring of 2025, but that doesn’t mean this fest is canceled. In fact, there are even fests inside of the fest, like a never-ending Matryoshka doll. The main events are the art and the music; over 200 juried artists will be sharing their work, selling items, and giving demos while two stages of music will showcase local acts. Classic vehicles will be parked and sparkling at the Art of the Car Show, while a kids’ zone will offer hands-on fun and entertainment and the Contigo Minneapolis Dance Festival will host social dancing all weekend long. There will be two markets, one offering vintage threads and vinyl and another focused on culinary arts.—Jessica Armbruster

  • Wrestlepalooza with Viva Knievel, Sweetpea and Emerald Eve @ First AvenueThe kids who called you “gay” in elementary school for liking wrestling? Well… at the end of the day, they may have had a point. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that! You can ask them—wrestling is “super queer now,” with indie performers from coast to coast embracing their identity in the ring. Local promoters F1rst Wrestling have always said that wrestling is for everyone, and they’re once again bringing a big-time Pride party to First Avenue with burlesque performers Sweetpea and Emerald Eve joining the party, plus a performance from genre-spanning cover band Viva Knievel. Read our 2021 profile of badass, boundary-smashing local wrestler Devon Monroe here.—Em Cassel
