Watch out, Bob. Ye is coming for you. “Calling out to Bob Dylan Let’s get together,” Kanye West tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

Old Dominion plays Amsoil It's a question for the ages: "I wonder if Jack and Diane ever made it," Matt Ramsey sings at the top of Old Dominion's 2017 Billboard topping album "Happy Endings." "Did the heartland just swallow them up?" The poppy Nashville fivesome is known for its songwriting, which can bend tongue-twisty, smooth and soulful and/or cutely witty. Old Dominion closes its "Happy Endings" tour in Duluth with Canadian duo High Valley opening.
Sara Pajunen has found deep bass percussion by pounding on the side of a shipping container. She's collected the patterned clacks of a train and the distant sounds of mining. She's used a hydrophone to record the 15 seconds it takes for a taconite pellet to drop to the bottom of a pit mine. The classically trained musician grew up in Hibbing but moved away when she was 14. Now she's back — with her violin — to explore through visuals and sound, the changing region where her family has lived for more than 100 years.
Maria Bamford will play a second show in Duluth, due to popular demand, according to promoters Jade Presents.

Tickets are available at the Duluth Playhouse box office, cash only, and at jadepresents.com.
Clara's winter vacation It's Christmas Eve, and Clara gets a gift that keeps on giving: a small wooden nutcracker doll with a secret princely identity. In the middle of the night, she finds herself pairing with the toy in a battle against the Mouse King — then setting off on an adventure that includes the Ice and Dew Drop Fairies, gingerbread cookies and a globe full of dances.
The Black Water Lounge isn't technically Maxi Childs' living room, but it sure feels like it. She's quick to slide off her stool and away from the microphone to greet and mingle. When guests leave, the singer and sometimes stand-in percussionist — she can play the cymbal with her watch band — waves and grasps their hands between hers. It wouldn't be off-brand to see her performing host duties: passing a tray, fetching a coat from a back bedroom, telling a crowd-pleasing tale about that one time.
A sandwich shop that bills itself as serving “a sub-above” is scheduled to open on Central Entrance later this month.

It opens Dec. 12 at 905 W. Central Entrance in the strip mall near Shopko.

Rachael Kilgour's new song has snagged national attention on a best-of list that also includes Dolly Parton. Kilgour's song "Holy Are We," a slow acoustic love song with Sara Pajunen on violin, is on Rolling Stone's 10 Best Country Songs to Hear This Week. In a blurb, it's referred to as a "stunning defense of same-sex love." The refrain: "If my greatest sin is to love her well, you can send me to hell."
