Twin Cities Music: Oct. 20-22

Upcoming musical acts: Florence + the Machine, Fleetwood Mac, Eric Hutchinson, Opiuo

Saturday, 10/20

Florence + the Machine

Target Center, 600 N. First Ave., Minneapolis

Singer-songwriter Florence Welch’s voice is strong, vulnerable, and unmistakable, and her music always tells a story. Between the poignant “Shake It Out” from 2011’s Ceremonials and the soul-grabbing “Big God” off her newest album High as Hope, she’ll no doubt deliver a dramatic, choreographed performance at Target Center in Minneapolis.

Eric Hutchinson and the Believers

Pantages Theatre, 710 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis

Blending rock, folk-pop, and powerpop, Eric Hutchinson’s music has drawn comparisons to the ’60s and ’70s sounds of Cat Stevens, The Beatles, and Billy Joel. Hutchinson and his band, the Believers, recorded their latest album, Modern Happiness, at Minneapolis’ Flower Studio, and as the first music Hutchinson has written since starting Prozac, its lyrics probe his search for meaning and contentment. Don’t be fooled, though. First single “She Could Be the One” is uplifting and danceable.

Noah Kahan

7th Street Entry, 701 N. First Ave., Minneapolis

Folk-pop singer-songwriter Noah Kahan found success with recent, catchy releases “Hurt Somebody” and “False Confidence.” He has more music on the way. Catch the introspective musician on the rise at 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis.


Skyway Theatre, 711 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis

New Zealand synth-funk musician Opiuo brings his “world(ish)” tour to The Loft at Skyway Theatre in Minneapolis, known for youthful energy and danceable electronic music.

Monday, 10/22

Fleetwood Mac

Xcel Energy Center, 199 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul

Since 1967, pop-rock band Fleetwood Mac has had a rotating cast, but this tour stop at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul features the founders who never left, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, as well as the legendary Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, and musicians who joined for the tour, Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House founding member Neil Finn. We recommend listening to all their hit singles before going—“Landslide,” “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop”…
