Friday/Saturday: Davina and the Vagabonds @ Dakota Jazz Club – Mpls.

For gritty/sassy vocals and high-energy music that spans multiple genres, look no further than Davina and the Vagabonds.

The well-traveled quintet is barreling into the Dakota Jazz Club for two nights and four shows. You read that correctly.

Shows begin at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. each night. Tickets are $15.

Saturday: Dead Bundy and the Neat Neat Neats @ 311 Club – Mpls.

For a change of pace, check out “psychobilly” rockers Dead Bundy and the Neat Neat Neats.

Like psychobilly implies, the Minneapolis band has a rockabilly flavor to it, with more of a punk-grudge edge to it, featuring an upright bass and twangy guitars.

They hit the 311 Club Saturday night with The Sexy Rays and DJ Lazer Bob – 10 p.m.
