Keep the Heat on Program – Heating for those in need
Every fall, AEI will donate a furnace and installation to a neighbor or family in need within the South Minneapolis Community. The selection process is based on family situation, income,  medical requirements if any, and overall need. If you know of a neighbor you think might qualify for this program, please send an email to info@AEIexpertise.com with a description of the situation and the reason why you think that this neighbor or family should be selected for our program. We will work in conjunction with local organizations, nonprofits and communities of faith to spread the word.

Neighbors, there is still time to give input on the future of the Mississippi Gorge Regional Park!
You can view and respond to 6 specific site designs within the gorge at this link:
Give input to site designs
Also, you can still fill out the general survey about what you’d like to see protected or added in the gorge at:
There are many wonderful features and improvement recommendations taking shape, including the goal of improving, making sustainable, and adding a few minimal but key links to the Winchell Trail that runs through the west side gorge. Trail improvements could be accomplished with minimal impact or alteration of the gorge, and would create the possibility of a continuous nature-immersed walking/hiking/trail running-only experience from Franklin to 44th Street. It is extremely helpful for the MPRB to hear peoples’ reactions to and explicit support for such ideas.
Please consider attending one of the last remaining open houses to see the plans and talk with planners and MPRB staff.  
Friday Nov. 30 —
8:30-10:00am — MPRB Headquarters, Cedar Conf Room
12-1:30pm — UMN Ralph Rapson Hall Lobby

Brass Messengers Live Recording Party at The Hook and Ladder Theater3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 7pm / Show 7:30pm FREE WITH RSVP RSVP–> http://thehookmpls.com/event/brass-messengers/
Join us for a wild evening with The Brass Messengers and their special guest Siama Matuzungidi. The whole night is being recorded for release in 2019!
The Brass Messengers are a Minneapolis/St. Paul sprawling fun factory of ten musicians. Music of choice is anything that fits into the twisted brass tubing, from inspired originals to sing-a-longs and covers from around the globe. Truly, a joyful noise. A street band playing mostly original music inspired by global sources, they formed from the annual rubble of the Heart of the Beast Mayday Parade. Their musical origins were found in the music of Africa, the Caribbean and Balkans. They play whatever works, throwing in a country song to the crying drinkers, a high-speed polka or two for the Midwest dancers, running in circles with the little ones, activating gatherings of our activist kin or a bit of Black Sabbath for the metal crowd. But mostly, it is an original music that rises from the heart of the band that can only be described as a homegrown Minneapolis street music sound.
Siama Matuzungidi – SiamaMusic Siama Matuzungidi was deeply influenced by the soukous music of rural DR Congo (then known as Zaire) during his youth. He grew up in the Bakongo region, immersed in local traditions of music, storytelling and dance. He taught himself to play guitar at age 12, and later joined the band Cavacha in Kinshasa. He then moved on to Uganda and onward to Kenya; his later homes were in Dubai and Japan, and he is now based in Minneapolis. Siama launched his solo career in in 2014 in Minneapolis after being awarded a McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians, and launched a solo career. Now running his own show, a lot of new material is flowing and he’s collaborating with musicians of a wide array of backgrounds and instrumentation.

With a passion and undeniable respect for roots music, this power group gives rise to a unique soulful sound, while remembering the musicians that laid the foundation be for them. This Rampant sound comes from a deep spot within the soul and can be linked to a collaboration of blues, funk, rock, folk and even reggae, forming an atmosphere of soulful jams. Rampant Roots consists of Will Effertz, the lyricist, vocalist and guitarist of the group. Demitri Rallis, also from the infamous jam group Frogleg, known for his soulful lightning solos. Josh Maxwell, the room shaker, where ever goes… the funk will follow, the master of the thundering bass. And finally the spine of the band, Derek Fagerwold, who can be found playing with countless bands within the twin cities, bringing the rampant rhythm. Rampant Roots form a night of ol’ stlye jams mixed with self-written music and soul-shaking covers. A few of their many influences consist of Allman Brothers, Bob Marley, Ray Charles, Neil Young, Widespread Panic, Parliament Funkadelic and so on. “We respect our roots but we also love to add our own Rampant twist and simply get dowwwwwn.”

Slow Flow Yoga w/Val at CANDO • 10am
Join Val for a luxurious Sunday morning slow flow. We’ll practice meditation, gentle yoga, and some light vinyasa to wind down from your weekend, and prepare for a positive week to come! All levels are welcome.

A Magical Story Time @ Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rdAve 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!

Look Vibrant (Montreal) with Brent Penny + Margaret @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 9pm • 21+ | $5-10 | 7:30PM doors / 8PM music
A night of dreamy, experimental pop. Look Vibrant : Montreal’s experimental-pop quartet Look Vibrant, are a wonderpot of musical inventiveness and immediacy, boiling over with energy and steaming into bliss. After releasing two singles of pure noise music (Plateau and Sweater in the Lake), and an EP of polished indie pop (Only Qualms) their debut album, The Up Here Place, perfectly combines these two elements into a product that is equally refined and unhinged. The songs teeter on the brink, threatening to fall apart at your feet, while somehow remaining intact by a logic that is uniquely Look Vibrant. Thematically, the album is an exploration of naive ambition, the constant need to reach ever growing heights, and the inevitable sharp drop that comes in its wake. http://www.firstdatetouring.com/artists/look-vibrant/ Brent Penny : Minneapolis-based, lo-fi electro pop angel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gl-kZZ2tB28 MARGARET : Maggie Morrison’s pitch-perfect, brazenly unaffected singing instrument is perhaps (Lookbook’s) most well-selected keepsake from the glory days of the discotheque. Live or on record, Morrison never slumps, never slides, never half-asses a single note. Like an Annie Lennox sans buzz cut, Morrison has a voice that manages to be forcefully intimate, as if emanating from some phantom space between your ears, and unseeably remote. Something in Morrison’s live delivery may account for this—she has as little use for meaningless mannerisms as she does for tremolo. As chillingly immaculate as a sine wave, Morrison and her voice have an inhuman perfection to them. Fortunately for her, and for us, Voight-Kampf tests are still a distant fiction. If she’s a replicant, we won’t raise a peep.

Pickpocket on 35mm @ Trylon Cinema, 2820E 33rd St • 7pm
A pickpocket tries to evade the police while holding human intimacy at arm’s length in this enigmatic character study. Inspired by Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment, Pickpocket is one of Bresson’s most impressive works.

Minnesota Peacebuilding Film Series @ Birchwood Café,3311 East 25th St • 7pm
Join us for this month’s film, “The House I Live In”. The films are free and open to the public, but space is limited – please reserve your seat! As America remains embroiled in conflict overseas, a less visible war is taking place at home, costing countless lives, destroying families, and inflicting untold damage up on future generations of Americans. In forty years, the War on Drugs has accounted for more than 45 million arrests, made America the world’s largest jailer, and damaged poor communities at home and abroad. Yet for all that, drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before. Filmed in more than twenty states, THE HOUSE I LIVE IN captures heart-wrenching stories from individuals at all levels of America’s War on Drugs. From the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge, the film offers a penetrating look inside America s longest war – a definitive portrait revealing its profound human rights implications. The film recognizes the seriousness of drug abuse as a matter of public health, and investigates the tragic errors and shortcomings that have meant this symptom is most often treated as a cause for law enforcement, creating a vast machine that largely feeds on America’s poor, and especially on minority communities. Beyond simple misguided policy, the film examines how political and economic corruption have fueled the war for 40 years, despite persistent evidence of its moral, economic, and practical failures. Peacebuilding films are typically the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Birchwood Cafe. Bring your appetites for positive social justice change and good real food!
