For this installment your hosts Devohn & Xochi de la Luna have new comedy sketches for you.

Open mic at 8:30pm. *+ signifies we will allow poets, storytellers, improv, and other not necessarily funny bits. Just no music at the open mic, there’s enough of those. Sorry. ***One of the primary intentions of the this Vector 9 is to provide a safer creative space for those who face oppression. Our intention is NOT to create a space where nobody will be offended or uncomfortable, rather we hope that any discomfort that arises comes from challenging power and privilege, rather than the repetition of the same oppressive narratives and behaviors that pervade most spaces. – Big shout out to Not So Macho Music Collective for originally creating these words that fit so well into my own mission statement.
Dario Argento 35mm Double Feature @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
Giallo (Italian for yellow) horror cinema, a term that alludes to the yellowing paper of pulp novels, came to be synonymous with Argento. Though often criticized as cheap and overly violent, his movies nonetheless exemplify the genre. His blazing reds and stunning blues create a beautiful texture for stories of astounding dread. The Cult Film Collective presents rare 35mm prints of two films that mark the apex of Argento’s career DEEP RED (1975) After witnessing a murder, Marcus Daly (Hemmings) goes on the run with a woman reporter (Nicolodi). Guided by a Giorgio Gaslini Goblin score and framed in meticulous cinematography, Deep Red is Argento’s definitive crime film.
TENEBRE (1982) This film follows pulp novelist Peter Neal (Franciosa), whose books a killer is using as inspiration. Argento reportedly made Tenebre in an effort to put an end to the Giallo genre. This 35mm print, the only one known in the U.S., is presented courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.

Yoga for SAD[ness] @ Imbue Yoga Studio, 2223 E 35th St • 3:30-5:30pm • $30 pre-sale | $35 Day of Register: https://bit.ly/2OXNGyD *Need 6 pre-registered by Oct. 13th to host this workshop
Yoga for SAD[ness] w/ Mary Bue: This is a workshop for those of us struggling with the change of the seasons. The winds, rains, fogs and grey have arrived to our fair city. After the bright sun and heat of summer, this change might seem harsh, even if you love all of the seasons! If you notice these symptoms as the cold months come in: feeling depressed, experiencing sleep issues, sluggishness and agitation, difficulty concentrating, low energy, overeating, weight gain, craving for carbohydrates, social withdrawal (feel like “hibernating”), you may suffer from SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder.
While I personally have not been diagnosed with SAD, I will say that I feel it mild to medium-ly. Please, if you notice these symptoms mildly or more, I urge you to seek counsel from a health professional and give yourself the love you deserve to thrive in the cold season. Can yoga help? I certainly hope so, and believe it can. It has given me hope! Some postures are enlivening and can enhance focus / concentration. Also, focusing on inhale and feeling the breath expand in the rib cage can feel expansive and hopeful. In this workshop, we’ll practice postures for energy and focus, breathwork to soothe the nervous system, and discuss some practical lifestyle tips to weather the season with grace. More info about ours studio at imbueyoga.com

You will leave with a printout of your birthchart, and resources to keep learning about astrology.
A Magical Story Time @ Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
It is our mission with this story time to promote children’s books that shine a spotlight on a wide array of racial and cultural identities, genders, orientations, experiences and abilities. We want to create a space that places a special emphasis on promoting self love, empathy and a greater understanding of the strange, magical world we inhabit. There is serious deficit in children’s books that depict protagonists who are a people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ or any combination of the above. That is why Madeline and Sam’s Magical Story Time seeks out books that do just that. Positive representation in books is crucial to a child’s development of a positive self image. It can be absolutely life affirming for a child to see a protagonist who reflects them accomplishing anything they set their mind to. It is also crucial in developing empathy for a child to experience diversity at a young age. This story time will not only be educational, but spectacularly fun! Before each reading we will have one minute wiggle parties and coloring pages that correlate with that weeks books. Come out to Boneshaker Books every Sunday between 11 AM and Noon starting June 9th to experience a story time that celebrates every child for the magical person that they are! Let’s have some fun!

Reading with Brian DeVore @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join agricultural journalist Brian DeVore for a discussion centered around his new book, Wildly Successful Farming: Sustainability and the New Agricultural Land Ethic. This book tells the stories of farmers in Minnesota and across the Midwest who are balancing viable food production with environmental sustainability and a passion for all things wild. They are using innovative techniques and strategies to develop their “wildly successful” farms as working ecosystems. DeVore, a writer, editor and podcaster who works for the Minnesota-based Land Stewardship Project, has spent the past 25 years traveling the Midwest, conducting interviews with the farmers, scientists, activists and other “ecological agrarians” who are blending the wild and the tame as they strive to create environmentally and economically sustainable food production systems. DeVore will read from his book and discuss what we can all do to support the wildly successful farmers who are raising healthy food, protecting our water and building resilient landscapes. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=4021

Bollywood Dance (FREE) at CANDO • 7pm • FREE
OIBY, in collaboration with Bollywood Dance Scene and The Central Neighborhood, Minneapolis, is very happy to bring Bollywood Dance to the community. We offer FREE Bollywood Dance every 4th Tuesday of the month!! Choreographer and Bollywood Dance Scene founding member Divya Maiya says, “Bollywood is inspired by various dance forms like classical, folk, as well as street dances. So it’s a huge mash-up of those forms along with hip-hop, belly dancing, and jazz. It does not conform to any strict format. People of all age groups can dance together. It does not require partners. It is over the top ridiculous and you need that to forget all the serious and grim happenings in your life.”

Reading with Jason Walz @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 6:30pm
Join us for a reading and interactive drawing event with Jason Walz, author of the new graphic novel Last Pick. In this first volume of Jason Walz’s dystopian graphic novel trilogy, the kids last picked are humanity’s last hope. Three years ago, aliens invaded Earth and abducted everyone they deemed useful. The only ones spared were those too young, too old, or too “disabled” to be of value. Living on Earth under the aliens’ harsh authoritarian rule, humanity’s rejects do their best to survive. Their captors never considered them a threat–until now. Twins Sam and Wyatt are ready to chuck their labels and start a revolution. It’s time for the kids last picked to step into the game. Jason Walz is a cartoonist and teacher working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Born in the South, he bounced around between Kentucky and Tennessee before working his way up north. His debut graphic novel, Homesick, was nominated for an Eisner in 2014. He followed that up with the online comic series Crap Shoot, where he worked with some of today’s biggest comic creators. He is also the author of A Story for Desmond, a comic about loss and the gifts left behind by those who are gone
