Ed Kowalczyk

7:30 p.m. • Cedar Cultural Center • $35-$40

While his ex-bandmates are touring with a replacement singer, original Live frontman Kowalczyk is out on an acoustic trek celebrating the 20th anniversary of his old band’s biggest record, “Throwing Copper” — which also happens to be one of the biggest albums ever recorded in Minnesota, with 8 million-plus copies sold. The Pennsylvanian alt-rockers made it at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls with the Talking Heads’ Jerry Harrison producing. Kowalczyk should have a story or two to share as he and guitarist Zak Loy revisit songs including “Lighting Crashes” and “I Alone.” Chris Riemenschneider
