Mu-tini Hour: RE:Plays
Friday: Theater Mu’s livestreamed Mu-tini Hour pairs playwrights from the Black and Asian communities to confront social issues in the wake of George Floyd’s death. It features three brand-new plays, including a science-fiction piece by Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay and Harry Waters Jr. called “Life Sounds,” as well as a piece co-written by Alayna Barnes and Katie Ka Vang, and another by Ifrah Mansour and Xiaolu Wang. (7-8:30 p.m. Fri. Free, theatermu.org/mutini-hour.) Sheila Regan
Roots, Rock & Deep Blues Fest
Saturday: It won’t be the usual daylong, multistage, sweaty marathon, but the 10th annual RRDB will offer a nice sampling of the festival’s potent mix. Prerecorded performances of R&B piano legend Cornbread Harris and TexaSotan Americana rocker Mary Cutrufello will precede a livestreamed set by Duluth’s pummeling blues howlers the Black-Eyed Snakes, led by Low’s Alan Sparhawk. (5-10 p.m. Sat. $10 via crowdcast.io or thehookmpls.com.) Chris Riemenschneider
Turn Turn Turn
Saturday: The Parkway Theater launches a livestreaming series with a new folk-rock trio. Featuring Adam Levy (the Honeydogs), Savannah Smith and Barb Brynstad, Turn Turn Turn dropped a well-crafted album, “Can’t Go Back,” last month. The summery, harmony-loving record filled with cold, hard truths evokes, at turns, the Byrds, the Beatles and the Mamas & the Papas. Brian Oake, former master of the airwaves, will interview the group. (8 p.m. Sat. $15, theparkwaytheater.com.) Jon Bream
