Minneapolis 2040 is a draft Comprehensive Plan that shapes how the city will grow and change. The draft covers topics such as housing, job access, the design of new buildings, and how we use our streets. Minneapolis is growing, and will continue to grow. Done right, population growth can help our city become a healthy, sustainable, and thriving place for everyone.Over the past two years, the people of Minneapolis have told us a lot about their vision and hopes for the future of our city. A main theme we heard is that as the city grows, everyone must benefit from that growth. Historically, not everyone has. This draft plan is one opportunity to undo barriers and overcome inequities created by a history of policies in our city that have prevented equitable access to housing, jobs, and investments.The draft plan reflects the result of two years of engagement with the people of Minneapolis, including over 50 meetings and conversations with thousands of residents, business owners and others. Your input directly helped us establish priorities and inform the content of the draft plan. We now invite you to provide feedback on the completed draft plan.We want to hear from you! Engage in Person at Community Meetings in MayPlease attend one of the interactive open houses listed below. Each event will feature the same family-friendly activities created by local artists, as well as free food from local businesses. Throughout the event, you can view and comment on draft policies and maps that are intended to achieve the plan goals.

Becky Kapell – CD Release Show at The Hook and Ladder Theater
3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 7pm • Music 8pm
21+ • $10 Advance • $12 Day of Show
Becky Kapell: Raised in small town Minnesota, Becky moved to Portland Oregon as a young adult and began singing back-up vocals in various bands, eventually fronting her own country cover band. Along came a husband, two kids and a move back to Minnesota. “I worked full-time, raised my kids and basically forgot about music until my son started playing guitar as a teenager. After my divorce I found myself with a little more time on my hands so I picked up one of my sons guitars and began teaching myself to play for fun.” The Tale of “That Certain Ache”
Playing with Bergen eventually led to recording a batch of new songs in his basement resulting in Becky’s upcoming release titled That Certain Ache. “We recorded in Paul’s basement over many late nights starting with me playing acoustic guitar and singing along with a drum loop as the rhythm track. Then Paul would add bass and guitars. Eventually we took the basement tracks to Erik Koskinen’s Real Phonic Studios where I re-did some of the vocals and Erik added drums and mixed it all. The whole record is just me and Paul and Erik. I can’t wait for people to hear the end result.” The CD release show will be held May 18th, 2018 at The Hook and Ladder in Minneapolis.

245 Cedar Ave S • 7:30pm
AREA PREMIERE by David Ives adapted from La Metromanie by Alexis Piron Directed by Kari Steinbach April 27–May 20, 2018
In aristocratic Paris, poets are the rock stars of the day, and young people have gone métromanie (“crazy for poetry”). And Damis has developed a particularly severe case – he’s fallen in love with the work of a mysterious poetess. Plot twists, complications, and mistaken identities – all in rhymed verse – tumble to a happy ending in this new telling of a 1738 French farce.

Joseph Huber Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Joseph Huber was a founding member of the .357 String Band–a group that, despite its abrupt break-up, still continues to gain popularity and is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movement. Having moved from .357, Huber has honed his songwriting abilities immensely and now continues moving onward and upward captivating folks with his sincere and well-crafted songs under his own name and with his backing band. Whether it’s irresistible, fiddle-driven, dancing tunes or honest, heart-wrenching “songwriter” songs, Huber spans the spectrum of ‘Roots’ music while preferring not to stay within the boundaries of any strict genre classification.
Cascade Crescendo Cascade Crescendo, from Portland, Oregon has been crafting their own brand of bluegrass since 2013. Pulling from their vast range of collective influences, they play original, high-energy bluegrass, jamgrass, and Americana music with captivating lead vocals by Hunter White, blazing fast mandolin licks by Aden Beck, and creative, thumping bass lines by Taylor Skiles. Duluth, MN banjo player, Harrison Olk, joined the band in late 2015, bringing with him solid Scruggs-style banjo and high lonesome harmony vocals. Barbaro Barbaro use traditional bluegrass instruments to blend country, jazz and newgrass styles and creates a melting pot of something auld and someting new. Mike Munson “Munson’s ubiquity, skill, and good character has helped make his music a part of the quintessential Winona experience.” The Noisy Neighbor

Comprised of some of the most seasoned, highly respected players in NOLA, the group called themselves The Unusual Suspects. Their chemistry was undeniable and by the summer of 2011 they decided to tour full-time, renaming the band New Orleans Suspects. They quickly began attracting large crowds from San Francisco to New York. They’ve released four CDs and established themselves as one of New Orleans’ best supergroups. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOkGkf1WIn4
Honey Island Swamp Band Honey Island Swamp Band’s music has been described as “Bayou Americana”, with timeless songs from Wilkinson & Mulé, highlighted by Mulé’s searing guitar, Wilkinson’s sure-handed mandolin, and 4-part vocal harmonies, all anchored by the powerful groove of Price & Paul’s Louisiana stomp rhythm section. The addition of Trevor Brooks on Hammond B-3 organ to the HISB family in 2010 has rounded out the band’s sound, which draws from a variety of influences in the world of roots music, including artists such as Lowell George & Little Feat, The Band, Taj Mahal, Gram Parsons, Jerry Garcia, Johnny Cash, Jimmy Reed, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, and New Orleans’ own Earl King and Dr. John. https://youtu.be/TViIaLOqJI0

Boneshaker Book Club: Border @ Boneshaker Books
2002 23rd Ave S • 9am
“Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe” by Kapka Kassabova. Copies are now in-stock, and are available at a 20% discount for all readers.
“Border shows more starkly than anything else I have read what the border did to the people who lived along it, and how its legacy endures.” -Mark Mazower, The Guardian (UK)
The Boneshaker Book Club is free and open to the public, welcoming people with diverse viewpoints and perspectives to join us in conversation. We meet at the bookstore on the second Saturday of every month from 9-11am, and hope you’ll join us for this month’s club! **No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, etc.** Boneshaker Books is ADA accessible, with no stairs or steps leading into, or in, the store.
ABOUT THE BOOK: In this extraordinary work of narrative reportage, Kapka Kassabova returns to Bulgaria, from where she emigrated as a girl twenty-five years previously, to explore the border it shares with Turkey and Greece. When she was a child, the border zone was rumored to be an easier crossing point into the West than the Berlin Wall, and it swarmed with soldiers and spies. On holidays in the “Red Riviera” on the Black Sea, she remembers playing on the beach only miles from a bristling electrified fence whose barbs pointed inward toward the enemy: the citizens of the totalitarian regime. Kassabova discovers a place that has been shaped by successive forces of history: the Soviet and Ottoman empires, and, older still, myth and legend. Her exquisite portraits of fire walkers, smugglers, treasure hunters, botanists, and border guards populate the book. There are also the ragged men and women who have walked across Turkey from Syria and Iraq. But there seem to be nonhuman forces at work here too: This densely forested landscape is rich with curative springs and Thracian tombs, and the tug of the ancient world, of circular time and animism, is never far off. Border is a scintillating, immersive travel narrative that is also a shadow history of the Cold War, a sideways look at the migration crisis troubling Europe, and a deep, witchy descent into interior and exterior geographies.

2ndSat Songwriters Showcase at the Riverview Cafe
3753 42nd Ave S • 7pm
Here’s the line up for our May show – all great performers, hope you can join us for the fun…
7pm – Don Fitzwater
8pm – Sam Purviance & Jeremiah Bohn
9pm – Oliver & Steve Nollet
Don Fitzwater is a multi-instrumentalist and singer who hales from Wisconsin, and now lives in Minneapolis. Long enamored with guitar and banjo, he performs both original songs and covers in a rich baritone, frafted in the traditions of folk, blues and country music. Don’s been performing most of his life, either through music or comedy. He directed the Dudley Riggs group in the 70’s, some famous names graduated from this venue.
Sam Purviance moved to St. Paul maybe a year or two ago, and has been lighting up a number of performance venues with his down home, southern comfort songs ever since. He often sings covers, but this evening will bring us a group of his original tunes that talk of faith and folly. With Sam is his son-in-‘love’ Jeremiah Bohn, (who just happens to be married to Sam’s wife Terri’s daughter, so it’s all in the family). Jeremiah is one of the truly accomplished players in our community. And he sings the blues like he’s lived them, with a strong, powerful voice. Been in bands since high school, accompanied the entire production of Ten November at Theater in the Round. More recent bands include Blue Green, 2 1/2, and Steve West and the Northern Stars. Jeremiah will share his original songs during this joint set.
Oliver and Steve Nollet are no strangers to Riverview audiences, they both write songs that communicate the trials and travails of this crazy life. Oliver has a fresh, young voice and powerful presentation, with songs that are musically and lyrically moving. Steve has been performing most all his life, on sax, accompanying Oliver on bass, or delivering his own songs with acoustic guitar.

Although a serious threat, garlic mustard is not only easy to identify but quick to pull by hand. Volunteers will be pleased to see a dramatic difference in ground cover by the end of this event – improving both water quality and habitat diversity.
As always, we’ll provide any necessary tools and training. All are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration required. To learn more and register, visit http://fmr.org/events/2018/05/15/pull-garlic-mustard-sand-flats.
