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. At the core is gifted songwriting, and the company Paul keeps bears it out: Bonnie Raitt, Nick Lowe, Chris Smither, John Hiatt and Cesar Rosas are among his friends and admirers. Tomorrow Sound are an elite crew.

Books & Bars MPLS: Kitchen Confidential Deluxe @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
“Kitchen Confidential Deluxe Edition” by Anthony Bourdain. Almost two decades ago, the New Yorker published a now infamous article, “Don’t Eat before You Read This,” by then little-known chef Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain spared no one’s appetite as he revealed what happens behind the kitchen door. The article was a sensation, and the book it spawned, the now classic “Kitchen Confidential,” became an even bigger sensation, a megabestseller with over one million copies in print. Frankly confessional, addictively acerbic, and utterly unsparing, Bourdain pulls no punches in this memoir of his years in the restaurant business. Join us to discuss the deluxe edition of “Kitchen Confidential,” featuring a new introduction and a Q&A with Ecco publisher and Bourdain’s long-time editor Daniel Halpern. Interior pages are hand-annotated by Anthony Bourdain himself. The interior also features brand new drawing by Ralph Steadman

Anna & the Apocalypse @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
ANNA & THE APOCALYPSE (MN Premiere) Tickets: $10 in advance / $12 at the door
Co-Presented by: Zombie Pub Crawl and Twin Cities Gay Scene Film Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfWIfwKJ7vA Film Website: https://www.aatafilm.com/ Teenage Anna’s life is typical enough. Chafing against the narrow horizons of her small town, she dreams of bigger things. It’s not so much that she doesn’t love her friends and family — she does — it’s just that they’re all so… familiar. So typical. So predictable. Her childhood best friend aches for a romance that she has no interest in, no matter how close they might be. The school jock that she had a fling with is proving to be disappointingly predictable in his behavior. And it’s becoming progressively harder for Anna to conceal her disappointment with just how satisfied her widower-father is with the blue collar simplicity of his never-changing existence. And then it all goes to shit. The night of the high school Christmas concert marks the arrival of the undead in Anna’s small town. And so begins a struggle to band together and survive. Future dreams are forced aside by the overwhelming need to survive the present in this winning Scottish musical-horror-comedy. Yes, we said musical. Yes, this is a zombie Christmas musical. Dir. John McPhail, United Kingdom & United States, 92 min, 2017

Radio Heartland 10th Anniversary Celebration @ The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 7:00pm :: Music 7:30pm :: 21+ :: $15 Advance :: $18 Day of Show
Radio Heartland 10th Anniversary Celebration featuring Erik Koskinen, Dustin Arbuckle & The Haymakers, Molly Maher, & Dusty Heart Thursday, December 13 at The Hook and Ladder Theater Tickets On-Sale Friday, November 16 at noon The Current’s stream featuring acoustic, Americana and roots will soon celebrate its 10th anniversary. Radio Heartland, the 24-hour service available to listeners worldwide, kicked off in 2008 as one of MPR’s first endeavors into the streaming world, and has been guided through the last decade by program director Mike Pengra. Celebrate Radio Heartland’s 10th anniversary with a concert gathering at The Hook and Ladder. The evening will include performances by Erik Koskinen, Dusty Heart, Dustin Arbuckle and the Haymakers, and Molly Maher. “We feel the four acts represent a good chunk of the wide variety of music we play on Radio Heartland: Americana, folk and roots,” said Pengra. “We love local music and there’s such a strong, connected music scene here in this area. Three of the four bands are from the Twin Cities and have been part of our playlist for a long time and are all good friends. And Dustin Arbuckle and the Haymakers are a energetic traveling string band from Wichita, Kansas.” Erik Koskinen Musically sprouted from the blend of American folk, country, rock-n-roll, and blues, Erik Koskinen and his top-shelf band realize a sound that is distinctive and fresh while familiar and classic. Koskinen’s albums are a lyrical and musical metaphor of American’s theaters of war, of history, of relationships, and of the reflections in the mirror. Knowing but not didactic, Koskinen channels the ways of Whitman and reverently enters the anthology of uniquely crafted wry songs with the likes of Woody Guthrie and Ry Cooder while speaking as plainly as your neighbor. Dustin Arbuckle & The Haymakers Call it roots or Americana but the music made by Kansas-based band Haymakers is the intersection of blues, folk, bluegrass, country and more. The outfit’s origins run back more than a decade when vocalist/harmonica player Dustin Arbuckle and guitarist/vocalist Tom Page began performing duo gigs. Arbuckle served as vocalist for roots and blues act Moreland and Arbuckle, recording six albums (including one as Moreland, Arbuckle & Floyd) between 2005 and 2016, culminating in the Alligator Records release, Promised Land or Bust. With a touring scheduled that carried the band across the United States and Canada as well as Europe and Australia, sharing the stage with Buddy Guy, Robert Cray and Johnny Lang, Moreland & Arbuckle called it a day in 2017. A Haymakers show is like a high-speed joyride down the highways of American music. Don’t miss them when they come to town! Molly Maher & her Disbelievers Molly Maher is the sort of musician you see once and never forget. An incomparable singer and songwriter with compelling depth and soul and cutting lyrics draws from the deep roots of Americana music. She writes songs that ring true. Her singing is a fine balance of deep and soulful, somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Raitt. Twangy and lament-filled spirit, guitar driven country-folk-jam with a blues swagger. Dusty Heart Rich vocal harmonies merge with intimate layers of guitar, fiddle and banjo to define the lush sound of Dusty Heart. Barbara Jean and Molly Dean are two songwriters recognized in their own right for their poetic lyrics and distinct vocal styles that when combined create a powerful and haunting sound that takes on a life of its own. Through their shared wanderlust and love of adventure, a passion for the open road, vast landscapes & poetry, as well a mutual love for musical harmony, Dusty Heart has crafted a sound that bridges together the diverse musical worlds of roots, indie, pop and folk

Join authors Michael Brodkorb and Allison Mann at Boneshaker Books for readings from their new book, “The Girls Are Gone.” “The Girls Are Gone” tells the true story of two sisters who went missing, the father who kept searching, and the adults who conspired to keep the truth hidden. On the evening of April 19, 2013, Samantha and Gianna Rucki disappeared. Two of five children born to David Rucki and Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, the teenage sisters vanished in the midst of their parents divorce. The girls father, David Rucki, worked tirelessly with law enforcement to search day and night for his two missing daughters, following every lead while raising three remaining children at home. Their mother, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, used her newfound freedom to vacation around the world, abandoning her children. And as the investigation intensified, catching the attention of the media, Sandra also disappeared.
About the Authors: Michael Brodkorb and Allison Mann met during the 2016 Grazzini-Rucki criminal trial. Allison worked at a law firm representing David Rucki, the father, who was trying to find his girls. Michael was working for the Star Tribune, covering the story as the case developed. Michael and Allison have spent the last two years working together investigating and researching to find the answers to many questions that had been left unanswered for years.

You have the option of donating to MN Indian Women’s Resource Center while at the market, too! This event is free to enter, cash ONLY, and open to all folks who would like to contribute to a respectful space explicitly against sexism, transphobia (please don’t assume our pronouns!), and racism.
—– ABOUT THE Vendors —–
All of these vendors are proudly BIPOC. Some of us are queer, trans, disabled, chronically ill. We recognize that there are many market spaces that are not welcoming to us, and there are systems in place that exclude us from being successful in many spaces. This pop up is an answer to that! We want to provide opportunities for our beautiful, hardworking, creative selves to succeed as a way of celebrating and uplifting our BIPOC community. Vendors will be selling their art, baked goods, pickles, and jewelry, among other treasures. Goods are mostly $1-$30. Many offer sliding scale pricing. P
—– ABOUT THE Space—–
This event will take place in the Du Nord cocktail room- the first cocktail room in the Twin Cities and one of only three Black-owned distilleries in North America. There is an accessible entrance on 32nd, and stairs at the front entrance. The bathrooms are unfortunately gendered, and we are not able to change that for this event. You can buy cocktails from the cocktail room. This space is accessible by the 7 bus and Blue Line trains. There are bike racks on 32nd. There is on-street car parking and a parking lot. The nearest ATM is less than two blocks away at the Moto Mart at 3301 Hiawatha Ave. http://www.picklewitch.org/supportlocalhustle

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!!
