Here are some shows taking place at less popular or lesser known venues.
All-female band Nots will be releasing We Are Nots on Goner Records this November 11th.
To support the record, the girls are touring, stopping by 'underground' venue Sh**Biscuit on November 14th in Minneapolis. Usually these venues are someone's house or basement and their address are not published online. We've attended a few of these, you just have to know someone who knows someone... good luck on finding the place.

The Icehouse (not to be confused with Australian 'Electric Blue' 80s band) actually regularly book shows, but because it's a restaurant/bar, I have noticed that many of their shows takes place really late - usually at 10pm or 11pm (although all the early events are free). We've covered a few Icehouse shows, so this is one of the regular venues.... but it's been a long time since I attended a show there.
Anyway, local Minneapolis quintet Sun Gods to Gamma Rays will be doing a CD release show for their new album A Ghost To Find, this Friday November 7th at the Icehouse in Minneapolis, with Votel.

On the corner of Lake and Hiawatha (near the Target) is Patrick's Cabaret. I've never been to the venue, but I know this area pretty well. They've recently announced the "The Minnesota Artist Residency Project" which is all about booking shows in surrounding markets (instead of just one big show). Their first artist is for 82-year-old bluesman Leo Welch from Bruce, MS.
Leo "Bud" Welch will be playing tracks from his debut album Sabougla Voices (Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess Records) which came out January 2014.
