Will Any of This Even Happen? Your Complete Concert Calendar: Feb. 21-27

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

Will The Beths be in town tomorrow? Who can say?

I can't guarantee that any or all of these events will happen, because of, you know, THE SNOW. But if, by chance, we are spared the full wrath of this wintry onslaught—or if dedicated musicians and club employees troop on regardless—here's what's planned.

American Authors with Billy Raffoul @ Fine Line

  • Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew with Cool Cool Cool @ First AvenueWith Talking Heads unlikely to ever reform, it's good to see that what's probably their most celebrated album, Remain in Light, has become a kind of repertory work for artists to reinterpret. Beninese diva Angélique Kidjo recorded her own version of the 1980 album in 2018, then took her take on the road. Now ex-Head Harrison and guitarist Belew (who played on the record and with the band on tour) are offering their own live rendition.
