While she takes cues from musical influences like Nina Simone, Etta James, Tina Turner, and Mary J. Blige, Liv Warfield has carved out a style all her own, best described as “alternative soul with a ‘lil bit of rock ‘n’ roll.” After the release of her debut album, Embrace Me, she caught the eye of Prince, and ultimately joined the New Power Generation. Warfield headlines Minneapolis’ Fine Line on March 8.
Drive-By Truckers kicks off the new election year with The Unraveling, their first album in over three years. “How do you put these day-to-day things we’re all living through into the form of a song that we (much less anybody else) would ever want to listen to? How do you write about the daily absurdities when you can’t even wrap your head around them in the first place?,” the band asks in a press release. Drive-By Truckers write personal music—and in this instance the political is indeed deeply personal. Catch them at the Palace Theatre on Saturday, March 14.
San Francisco-based hip-hop artist and poet George Watsky, professionally known as Watsky, returns to First Avenue on Saturday, April 25. Watsky has made a career of experimenting while maintaining consistency. Even as his hip-hop has evolved to include elements of rock, jazz, and orchestral arrangements, he has held true to his distinct blend of occasionally funny, often virtuosic, always honest wordplay.
After a sold-out Fine Line performance earlier this year, modern pop icon and crowned Queen of Halloween Kim Petras returns to the Twin Cities—this time, at the Palace Theatre—on Saturday, November 30 with Alex Chapman. The Clarity Tour begins fresh off the heels of two defining projects for the German star—Petras' debut album Clarity dropped in June, and her spooky dance record Turn Off the Light was released just last month. “My music is supposed to take people out of their everyday problems and make them forget if they feel s---ty," Petras tells The Washington Post. "But there are also a bunch of party bangers, and I hope that people just have fun.”
