Rock and blues band Colin Campbell & the Shackletons’ The Horizon Lines EP release show is on Tuesday at the 7th Street Entry.
Of course, the family band is fronted by guitarist/singer Colin Campbell, along with his older brother, Cameron on bass, and younger brother Evan on drums.
Helping them celebrate will be Early Eyes, Newstrange, and Spooky Ghost (not to be confused with Massachusetts’ Spooky Ghosts). We previously saw Spooky Ghost in 2015 when they were brand new and wrote:

Join local Minneapolis synthy three-piece Claps (Patrick, Jed, and Sara) as they close out the year at this show on December 29th. The band has a deep love for Depeche Mode, OMD and Joy Division (so no doubt they were probably at the Peter Hook show earlier this year).
We previously wrote about Claps in 2011 and described them as forming in 2009 and featured two synth players. Their debut album Wreck is out now.
Show up early to check out Slumberland Records’ Real Numbers as they play some songs from their album Wordless Wonder, which came out earlier in October.
Also on the bill are Posh Lost (formerly called Gloss) and Zina. Additional details below:
Real Numbers - they aren't called real for nothing - 💯 💯 back from the past punk leads with summer beach night vibes coming at you straight from some total dreamboats
Posh Lost - baby its coldwave outside and it will be in here too. dreamy post punkers will sing you sad songs about today.
Zina - synthpop ex·tra·or·di·naire. already a sensation to me, these songs will catch you when you fall.

at Fine Line Music Cafe
Saturday, 12/31/16, 8pm ($20)
The Los Angeles-based Grammy winning trio King (Paris and Amber Strother, and Anita Bias) is celebrating New Year at the Fine Line Music Café in Minneapolis this December 31st. This should be a special show, as we previously caught the group at the Dakota Jazz Club in October and noted that they had a ton of friends and family in attendance, showing support and love for the singers. If Prince was alive, he would also be at this show.
Special guests tiny deaths, K.Raydio, and DJ Willie Shu to open.
