Rumination @ Praxis Gallery & Photographic Arts Center, 2637 27th Ave S, NW Corner of Ivy Arts Bldg. • 6pm
Rumination focuses on the underrepresented aspects of depression including the daily experience that feel diminished in today’s society. This photographic series is installed as floating sculptural prints made of silk organza. Walk into a room filled with floating silk images these photographs become forms; delicate, floating translucent fluid moments.

This exhibition is a collaborative event, collaborators include choreographer Ayumi Shafer of DanceBARN and sound artist Benjamin Soma. The collaboration includes the addition of pre-recorded sounds of ‘daily life’ that form a compositional music score. Dancers will move throughout the exhibition space responding to this score for an interpretative performance in the exhibition space, creating a fully immersive experience.

Double Team (1997) on 35mm! @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 9:30pm
Van Damme and Rodman team up in this . . . you know what? Who cares! We get to see Van Damme fight a tiger, and the absurd climax unfolds at the, um, “Colosseum.”

Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound + Calico Tango at The Hook @ The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave S • Doors 7pm • Music 7:30pm • +21 • $15 Advance • $20 Day of Show
TICKETS -> https://paul-cebar-tomorrow-sound.eventbrite.com
Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound bring forth a funky, lyrically charged racket that is explosive, yet intimate. Taking cues from the dance bands of western Louisiana (and his native Midwest,), the streets (and 45’s) of New Orleans, touring African and Caribbean combos and the soul, funk & blues of his youth, Paul Cebar is a masterful synthesist of rhythmic culture.  His time spent in his second home of New Orleans, as a musicologist in Florida, and as a journeyman wanderer in Cuba, is reflected in his musical worldview. http://paulcebar.com

With an electrifying stage presence and a deeply personal guitar‐playing style, Calico Tango is winning over an impressive string of audiences. Young Twin Cities talent on the rise! http://www.calicotango.com

Ronin (1998) on 35mm! @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
This late Frankenheimer gem puts U.S. intelligence agent Sam (De Niro) in the crosshairs of both the Russians and the Irish as the double-crosses pile atop one another. A return to form for the director, this gritty espionage actioner boasts one of cinema’s most stunning car chases.

Katy Vernon Band with Gini Dodds & Robert Wilkinson @ The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
The only local full band show of the year for the acclaimed Katy Vernon Band. Katy is an acclaimed singer/songwriter/ukulele player who –with her band of professional musicians (all here in Twin Cities)– has crafted a new album that is generating critical raves, album and ticket sales. Her fan base are quick to point out the sheer musicianship of the band.  The influences are broad but warmly familiar: classic-era 10,000 Maniacs, Brandi Carlisle come to mind. While the album’s musical roots/blues/swing and folk elements are upbeat and inspiring—what has struck a chord with many critics and fans are Katy’s lyrics: Personal and empowered. Her life story (including her inspiring story of recovery) is told in a clear voice.
Opening solo set by Robert Wilkinson.

If the Twin Cities had a Mount Rushmore Of Rock, then Mr. Wilkinson would rightfully take a spot. As a founding member and lead singer of the Flamin Ohs, he has been entertaining fans for decades. Whether with the Oh’s, The Snaps, or as a solo musician, he has been writing the soundtrack of our city for a lifetime.

Headlining set by Gini Dodds & The Dahlias. Gini Dodds, chief songwriter for The Dahlias, has been inspired by The Who, Neil Young, The Kinks, The Band, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, The Pretenders, Lucinda Williams, The Hollies, The Byrds, Warren Zevon and The Raspberries to name a few. But it’s what she’s done with those influences that tells the real story. The Dahlias are a Twin Cities super group bringing her vision to life.
Set times:
7:30pm Robert Wilkinson solo
8:30pm Katy Vernon band
10pm Gini Dodds & The Dahlias

Reading with Clark Strand and Perdita Finn: The Way of the Rose, Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us for a reading with Clark Strand and Perdita Finn as they read from their new book, The Way of the Rose.
In The Way of the Rose: The Radical Path of the Divine Feminine Hidden in the Rosary, Strand and Finn weave together a history of the rosary that includes ancient flower garlands and pre-Christian goddesses with their own remarkable experiences of finding strength and solace in following the path illuminated by the rosary.

Strand describes his meandering path of spiritual seeking, one that took him in and out of religious communities and face to face with the worst abuses of power. Finn writes relatably about the sometimes paralyzing anxieties of modern life—from frenetic expressways to healthcare troubles to impending climate apocalypse—and the inexplicable relief the rosary provides.

In fifty-nine short chapters that correspond to each bead of the rosary—and which can be used as daily meditations—Strand and Finn explore the fascinating roots of the rosary in ancient cultures, its commonalities with “worry beads” and other tactile meditation practices which exist in every major spiritual tradition, the powerful symbolism and grounding rhythm built into the prayer cycles of the rosary, and offer a clear, practical guide for how to begin.

Clark Strand and Perdita Finn are co-founders of The Way of the Rose, an inclusive fellowship of rosary friends dedicated to the Earth and to the Lady, “by any name we wish to call Her.” Strand is the author of numerous articles and books on spiritual practices, including Seeds from a Birch Tree: Writing Haiku and the Spiritual Journey and Waking Up to the Dark: Ancient Wisdom for a Sleepless Age. Finn is a children’s book author and former high school teacher. They live with their family in the Catskill Mountains.

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.”
