Tre Aaron at Minnehaha Falls • Fri 7pm 
Tre Aaron (7:00-8:30pm)
They used to call it midwest country music. But it’s better known as Sidewalk Blues. Elements of jazz, rhythm & blues, country, rock, and gospel, all blended together to make something that definitely ain’t your run-of-the-mill,  sitting n’ listening music…
Come get hit all up in your soul,  put a slide in your stride and a dip in your hip, trade those workday blues for some dancing shoes, because you’ve never heard nothing like this…

Rififi (1955) @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
Dassin’s first film in Europe after being blacklisted was his masterpiece. From its nearly silent, 30-minute jewelry-store robbery sequence to its devastating conclusion, this is the highwater mark against which all other heist movies are measured.

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!
 

Monday, Sep 2

Seven Beauties (1975) @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
After Army deserter Pasqualito accidentally murders his sister’s lover, he is sent to a concentration camp, where he must seduce the Nazi commandant in order to survive. Seven Beauties serves as a warning about how fascism can seep into the very heart of a nation.

Tuesday, Sep 3

Midtown Farmers Market pop-up (full summer schedule!) @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 3pm
Join us at the Midtown Farmers Market’s new location – tucked right beside Moon Palace Books on Minnehaha Ave.

Gut Tending + Healing: a 4-part Info Jam @ The Medicine Tree Herbal Pharmacy, Acupuncture and Massage Clinic, 3708 E 34th St • 6:30pm
The need-to-know run-down of the anatomy and physiology of the digestive system, herbs for gut healing and acute conditions, and self care practices to restore optimal digestion and elimination. The owner’s manual you should have gotten, with holistic approaches to SIBO, leaky gut, Crohn’s, food intolerances, preventive medicine and more. Each class will include sampling a recipe for a gut healing herbal super-food treat. Yum!
How I became a clinical herbalist: I was curled into a ball after every meal. Fatigued. Overwhelmed by the immensity of dietary healing choices, wading through the information. Have you been here? Are there still questions that feel unresolved? Fasting, cleansing, nutrition choices ranging from high carb to no carb, fiber types, prebiotics, probiotics, bitters and gut healing herbs, supplements, and is-this-thing-coming-out-of-my body-normal? We’ll break down the mechanics and snuggle up to the soul and metaphysics of our guts in this series designed to take you from confusion and conflicting information to focused clarity.  After years of intensive study, including 1,300 hrs of clinical herbal training with absurd amounts of time spent studying the inner workings of the digestive system, this series is the cliff notes version of the information I wish I’d had access to years ago, so I could have rocked on way back then instead of curling into a ball of pain.
Tuesdays in September: 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th 6:30 – 8:30 pm
$111 for the series of 4, or $33 drop-in per class.

To pre-register: paypal.me/sageheather or Venmo @Heather-Sage-3.  Include your name in a note with payment.
2 scholarships available, first come, first-served to BIPOC/ LGBTQ/GNC folks. Just send me a message.

Summer in the Beehive: Learn About Honeybee Life on the Rooftop @ Tiny Diner, 1024 E 38th St • 6pm

We’ll open one up and take a look at what’s going on, talk about what to look for in the coming month and answer questions. Protective veil will be provided but plan to wear your own long pants and sleeves if concerned about stings. We’ll be able to sample honey right from the hive and hopefully spot the elusive queen!
This class is for potential, beginner, seasoned beekeepers and pollinator lovers. This class will take place the first Tuesday of every month and is just $5. Sign up for all classes or just come to one! Other class dates: July 2nd, August 6th and September 3rd.

Ethical Downsizing Strategies: Do The Most Good @  Peace Coffee, 3262 Minnehaha Ave • 5:30pm
As boomers reach retirement, millennials embrace minimalism, and retailers spit out an ever-increasing barrage of product, those getting ready to downsize face a harsh reality: stuff isn’t worth much, demand is weak, and estate liquidators have become strategic about which clients they accept, leaving many seniors – and their families – to deal with decades of emotionally charged accumulation on their own.
Our objective is to help empty nesters know what to expect and how to plan for a major life transition in order to have the most positive experience and most successful outcomes possible.
During this ‘tell it to me straight’ info session, we’ll explain the current market for secondhand goods, discuss the unique opportunities and challenges that present for this particular age group and explain what is likely to happen at each phase of the downsizing process.
You’ll leave the event with a clear understanding of the stages involved, solutions for each stage, and a list of resources, contacts, and strategies intended to help you keep as many of your treasures out of the trash as possible.
If you’d like to host this programming for your community, customer base, or private event, please contact us to learn more and/or schedule.
Check out our other classes at http://shopjunket.eventbrite.com
**This is a donation based event. Your donations will help us defray setup costs and, ultimately, ensure that we’re able to continue offering events and classes to our community. Thank you!**

One-Shot Comics Book Club: Laura Dean Keeps Breaking up with Me @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us on Thursday, September 5th at 7 pm for a discussion of LAURA DEAN KEEPS BREAKING UP WITH ME by Mariko Tamaki, illustrated by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell (who, sidenote, is from Minneapolis!). As always, copies of the book are available at Moon Palace for 20% off. Thanks for supporting comics and your local independent bookstore!
About the book (from the publisher): Author Mariko Tamaki and illustrator Rosemary Valero-O’Connell bring to life a sweet and spirited tale of young love in Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me, a graphic novel that asks us to consider what happens when we ditch the toxic relationships we crave to embrace the healthy ones we need.
Laura Dean, the most popular girl in high school, was Frederica Riley’s dream girl: charming, confident, and SO cute. There’s just one problem: Laura Dean is maybe not the greatest girlfriend.
Reeling from her latest break up, Freddy’s best friend, Doodle, introduces her to the Seek-Her, a mysterious medium, who leaves Freddy some cryptic parting words: break up with her. But Laura Dean keeps coming back, and as their relationship spirals further out of her control, Freddy has to wonder if it’s really Laura Dean that’s the problem. Maybe it’s Freddy, who is rapidly losing her friends, including Doodle, who needs her now more than ever.
Fortunately for Freddy, there are new friends, and the insight of advice columnists like Anna Vice to help her through being a teenager in love.

Cure (1997) on 35mm! @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
Our first volunteer programmer film is chosen by Kathie Smith and is Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s CURE. Kathie says this of it, “Cure has all the elements that I love: subversive genre, existential doom, social allegory, shadowy color palette, methodical pacing and blissful ambiguity!” Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s breakout film, pits a world-weary detective (Yakusho) against an elusive serial killer. But as the victims start to add up and the perpetrators lack any memory of committing murder, it becomes clear that darker forces are at work on Tokyo’s streets.
-Kathie Smith, volunteer projectionist since July 2009

Dang-it! It sounded good! “There might be a band in here, maybe”. So they quickly recruited two more ex-Rangers- Drummer Dehl Gallagher and Harp-player Billy Smith…THE RANCHTONES were born…They cobbled together a basic P.A., played a few gigs…played a few more…and more and folks were digging on that rockin’ kickin’ good-time Country music!

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!

Beyond the Fairy Tale, an Evening with Danish Artists @ Danish American Center, 3030 W River Pkwy • 7pm • FREE
H.C. Andersen (1805-1875), is Denmark’s most famous son, known world over for his fairy tales, 175 of which were published in his lifetime. He would want to be remembered, deserves to be remembered, as much more; as prolific playwright, novelist, poet, and, perhaps most of all, as a travel writer.  He spent 20 years of his life away from Denmark, on journeys which fueled much of his writing. His extraordinary diaries document meetings with the great minds of his day, with writers, artists, painters, musicians, and scientists. But they are also full of his conversations with the ordinary people he loved, like those who had first told him stories in the back streets of his home city, Odense. These were the people he wrote for, and about. This salon-style evening offers an insight into Andersen’s world, travels, and poetry, counterpointed by music from the composers he knew and loved, and Skærved’s own fables and poetry.
Danish writer and filmmaker Malene Skærved moved to the Twin Cities in her mid-teens. She now lives in London. Malene has written biographies of Andersen and Marlene Dietrich, as well as modern fables, in the spirit of ‘H.C.A’.
Peter Sheppard Skærved lives in London. He is acclaimed for his collaborative work with museums, working regularly with the British Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Galleries, Victoria & Albert Museum and worldwide. He plays on a 1698 Stradivari owned by Joseph Joachim from the collections of the Royal Academy of Music, where he is the Fellow of Performance Studies. This is a free event.
