If you're not down with the crowds or The Black Keys, head to Kilby Court for Minneapolis hip-hop collective Doomtree. Obscure above ground and beyond Minnesota, Doomtree are largely recognized for one member’s fairly swift ascent. Emcee/producer P.O.S. broke out before the rest of the crew took flight, signing to local indie label Rhymesayers and grabbing headlines for his aggressive, genre-bending style.

Doomtree assume the role of drill sergeant one minute, wise barstool sage the next. Most of their tough love scenarios involve bottles and battles with fallen angels, “baptized in bourbon/capsized for certain.”

Support them. Then head to Woodshed for Cowboy Ramble. An extension of Band of Annuals, the rotating group of local musicians do just homage to country legends like Hank Williams and George Jones. Their gig at Snowbird's Tram Club last Saturday even featured a cameo by current Nashville great Jim Lauderdale. Who knows who'll show up tonight.
