If you want to appease your competitive streak in addition to checking out some new music, look no further than Memory Lanes’ two-day Rock ‘n’ Bowl Live event. Get a group of friends together for a bowling competition and enjoy some live music from several Twin Cities rock bands in the process.

Friday’s packed lineup includes sets from gothic punk band Funeral and the Twilight, garage rock band Narco States, and power rock group Mystery Date, while Saturday revolves around a “Rockabilly Bowl” theme with a performance from rock ‘n’ roll/doo wop band Ross Kleiner & The Thrill. Whether you’re a serious bowler or just looking to have some fun, the Rock ‘n’ Bowl event is an ideal choice for a classic Friday and/or Saturday night out. Plus, it always helps to have a little music to jam out to when you bowl a strike. F & Sa. 10 p.m. Free. —RO
