Is it cold enough for you out there? This winter has been brutal, and if you’re like many Minnesotans, the cold-induced sadness can leave you cooped up inside with no energy or motivation to leave the house unless you have to. Here’s a bit of good news for those of you with seasonal affective disorder: music has the power to improve your mental health, and there is plenty of it going around in Minneapolis, even in the dead of this frigid winter.

School or work cancelled today and/or tomorrow because of the dangerous temperatures? Bundle up and head to one of the live shows coming up tonight and tomorrow. Tonight, the quaint Acadia Café on Main Street in Northeast is hosting the band Only Every Monday at 8pm. The 331 Club welcomes Doug Otto & Friends tonight at 6:30pm, followed by the Roe Family Singers at 9pm. If you find yourself in the Uptown area, Famous Dave’s BBQ & Blues has The Bad Companions set to play tonight at 8pm. If you’re feeling extra bold on this subzero evening, consider singing some karaoke tonight at the Northeast-area dive bar Otter’s Saloon at 9pm (21+ only).

Interested in heading out tomorrow night? Plenty of live music options on Tuesday as well. Lord Huron is playing at First Ave at 7pm (18+ show). For a lower-key experience, consider heading over to Dakota Jazz Club to check out Tom McDermott at 7pm. The warehouse district’s Bunker’s Music Bar & Grill hosts the International Reggae All-Stars at 9pm on Tuesday.

This is merely a short and quick list of music-themed ideas for date nights, a casual night out with friends, or maybe a solo night out this week! Don’t let that weather get you down! Get out and support your local artists this winter.
