Welcome to this week’s edition of the Set List. We’ll now be previewing the upcoming music a little earlier in the week, giving you more time to plan your weekend!

The Ike Reilly Assassination | Turf Club | Tuesday, March 15, 7pm

It’s not quite Ike Reilly on St. Patrick’s Day, but I’m guessing the vibe will be close enough. The Chicagoland songwriter has long been a Twin Cities favorite, and for good reason. His live shows are often a whiskey-fueled communion. Ike’s most recent album “Born On Fire” was released last summer, the first record to be released by Tom Morello’s Firebrand Records. Buy your tickets soon, as this show is about to sell out. $20 / 21+ / Buy tickets

St. Patrick’s Day with Dillinger Four | Turf Club | Thursday, March 17, 7:30pm

Minneapolis’ longstanding punk rockers Dillinger Four still know how to throw down, so expect the unexpected for this St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The night also features Nato Coles & The Blue Diamond Band, Bug Fix (a newer punk band made up of members of Birthday Suits and formerly of Red Pens + Selby Tigers), and last but not least, Cherry Cola, who were born out of the ashes of Stereo Confession last fall. $13 / 21+ / Buy tickets

Farewell Milwaukee + Erik Koskinen | Cedar Cultural Center | Friday, March 18, 8pm

Farewell Milwaukee’s Ben Lubeck recently put out an amazing solo album entitled “Rented Rooms,” but he’s still focused on his primary band. Guitar slinger and a great songwriter in his own right, Erik Koskinen co-headlines that evening, while Winona’s Mike Munson will open the evening with his slide guitar blues. $12 / All Ages / Buy tickets

An Evening with Greg Dulli | Cedar Cultural Center | Saturday, March 19, 8pm

While The Afghan Whigs reunited in 2012, frontman Greg Dulli never really slowed down during their 10+ year hiatus. His equally fantastic project The Twilight Singers put out five albums during that time, as well as the 2005 release “Amber Headlights,” the first to be released under his own name. Greg recently embarked on a “solo” tour with his own band, but promised a new Afghan Whigs album tour later in 2016. The shows have featured songs from both the Whigs and Twilight Singers catalog, as well as a bevy of covers from Björk to Marvin Gaye. This show is close to selling out, so don’t wait on grabbing a ticket. $30 / All Ages / Buy tickets
