Monday-Tuesday: The Twin Cities’ love affair with Dawes — and vice versa — continues with the Los Angeles band’s second annual end-of-the-year stand at the Varsity. While Dawes didn’t seem quite as rollicking in July at First Avenue when it showcased tunes from this year’s album “Stories Don’t End,” they still remain one of America’s most vital young bands, and Taylor Goldsmith (pictured below) one of the most compelling frontmen to emerge in the ’10s. Wisconsin’s Field Report opens both nights. (8:30 p.m. Mon.; sold out. 9:30 p.m. Tue., $75-$125, Varsity Theater, 1308 SE. 4th St., Mpls. 18-plus. Varsitytheater.org)
