Friday, July 26

Leonoris Causa & Mestifonía @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 9pm

About Mestifonía: Mestifonía is a Minnesota-based group that blends Colombian, Bolivian, and American talent.  The group plays music from the Iberian Peninsula and South America, bringing to life the sounds of fado, flamenco, cueca, tango, and more.
www.mestifonia.com

Maygen Lacey & The Birdwatchers at Minnehaha Falls @ Minnehaha Falls • 7pm
Maygen Lacey & The Birdwatchers: are an American Folk-Rock group making music through contrast. In many respects, Maygen Lacey and Noah Neumann couldn’t be more different. From upbringing and musical taste to the Mpls vs. St. Paul debate, there are few things these two come together on. The shortlist includes: the importance of sarcasm, the great outdoors, quality beer, and being decent humans. Maygen & Noah draw on their distinctly different musical influences including Brandi Carlile, Florence + the Machine, and Balmorhea to create a listening experience with a Delta twist, that is warm yet adventurous. The contradictions and affirmations between these two songwriters combine to create a compelling debut EP that explores youth, family, addiction, and loss; navigating relationships with people that are in our lives beyond our control.

Wild Age with A.P. Simpson & Michael @ Hook and Ladder Mission Room, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 8pm • Music 8:30pm • 21+ • $7 Advance / $10 Day of Show 
The Hook & Ladder is excited to announce the return of Wild Age, a twin-city psych-pop band, for the exclusive public showing their brand new music video! Joining them in the Hook’s new Mission Room is St. Paul singer-songwriter, AP Simpson and local 6 piece indie rock/dream pop/shoe-gaze band, Michael.
Minneapolis pysch-pop outfit Wild Age specialize in breezy, hook-driven tunes that are as concise as they are catchy. The band’s 2018 release, Sea of Health, dealt with feelings of isolation, mental illness and a general uncertainty about the future, juxtaposing these dark lyrical themes with sunny, earworm choruses and pop-informed melodies. Ever prolific, the band entered the studio immediately after that release to record three brand-new singles: On Tv, The Mine, and Toe Tag. These three vignettes find primary songwriter McCoy Seitz parsing his thoughts on a range of topics from celebrity to gun violence to a soundtrack of familiar-but-fresh nostalgia rock provided by bandmates Blair Ransom, Matt Ahart, August Ogren, and Leng Moua.

“The music of Saint Paul-based vocalist/guitarist A.P. SIMPSON (Alexander Preston Simpson) might be best described as psych-tinged Nick Drake. Open tunings and haunting vocal melodies are the centerpiece of Simpson’s solo debut Newly Almost Fearless, which spent three weeks on the NACC 200 this past summer. While some elements have carried over from his previous project, William Within, Simpson’s latest direction is all electric and features a talented new supporting cast: Andy Schupp (Purple Funk Metropolis) on guitar/vocals, Mitch Schumer (Grape Whales) on bass/vocals, and Tarek Abdelqader (PFM) on drums.”

Jaws @ Riverview Theater, 3800 42nd Ave S • 11:30pm • All seats just $3 • 11:30pm showtime*
Jaws (1975): The Original summer blockbuster and one of the best movies ever made, Jaws returns once again to the Riverview Theater. When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature. Check out our full summer lineup here: http://www.riverviewtheater.com/show/show/2621

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!

Making Spaces Safer with Shawna Potter @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 4pm 
Join us for an event with Shawna Potter, discussing her book Making Spaces Safer.
Shawna Potter, singer for the band War On Women, has tackled sexism and harassment in lyrics and on stage for years. Taking the battle to music venues themselves, she has trained night clubs and community spaces in how to create safer environments for marginalized people. Now she’s turned decades of experience into a clear and concise guide for public spaces of all sorts, from art galleries to bagel shops to concert halls, that want to shut down harassers wherever they show up. The steps she outlines are realistic, practical, and actionable. With the addition of personal stories, case studies, sample policies, and no-nonsense advice like “How to Flirt without Being a Creep,” she shows why safer spaces are important, while making it easier to achieve them. Eschewing theory, she assumes the reader is already an ethical creature and jumps right in with candor, punk passion, and righteous anger to get the job done!
Shawna Potter: is a musician, activist, educator, and writer. She fronts the political hardcore punk band War On Women and is the founder of Hollaback! Baltimore. Shawna trains venues for the Safer Spaces Campaign, which she also co-founded. She currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with her partner and a porch cat that visits when the weather’s nice.

“Robert’s Shoes is a long standing institution for the south Minneapolis arts community. The building was in use by many artists creating a vast array of art work over the years. In addition, there are several living spaces that have been destroyed. We are now displaced. Some are without a home. Many of us have lost all our resources to make art, which is how a lot of us sustain ourselves. We are asking for a donation to collect and distribute between those who have lost something in this tragedy. ” – Alex Uhrich
For this benefit and installment your hosts Devohn & Xochi de la Luna have new comedy sketches for you featuring Helena Balcziak and Madi Tentinger. We also welcome and thank these folks for performing for the benefit: Music from: The_Miami_Dolphins (minneapolis, mn) TONGUE PARTY Gather Data Pray For Death CRASH CUDDLE Comedy by: Comrade Cherokee Tripp Dena Denny Robert Fones AND A COMEDY OPEN MIC for people of color, queer, transgender, and non-binary folk. Six, 5 minute slots in a chill and supportive space. With feedback if you come ask us. Sign up at 7pm, if you perform in the open mic, you get to see the show for free! Open mic at 8pm. ***One of the primary intentions of the this Open Mic is to provide a safer creative space for those who face oppression. Our intention is NOT to create a space where nobody will be offended or uncomfortable, rather we hope that any discomfort that arises comes from challenging power and privilege, rather than the repetition of the same oppressive narratives and behaviors that pervade most spaces

The Smoking Flowers (Nashville, Tn) The Smoking Flowers are a rock duo from Nashville, TN. Their style incorporates stylings from roots, alt-country, punk, and folk – bringing a punk attitude and energy to their highly infectious songs while creating a marriage of song and voice that is uniquely their own. Husband and wife team Kim and Scott Collins are both vocalists and multi-instrumentalists. Their sound encompasses a wide range; they have been described as everywhere from “beautifully ragged, sometimes haunting, many times beautifully goofy-grinned and/or playful, pleading, and pledging – but always beautiful.”
Mike Nicolai Mike Nicolai has been writing and playing songs for over thirty years, starting at the 7th Street Entry with a band called The Draghounds. For most of the last 23 years, he’s been living and playing music in Austin, Texas, playing shows with some of his biggest musical influences and heroes – The Jayhawks, Vic Chesnutt, The Pixies, Willie Nelson, John Doe, Babes in Toyland, Spoon, Jeff Tweedy, Jonathan Richman, just to name a few.
Doug Collins and the Receptionists Called “one of the most brilliant songwriters to emerge from the Twin Cities in nearly two decades” by southernminn.com, Doug Collins’ hooky mix of Beatle-esque pop and classic country are highlighted in his energetic shows (both solo and with his crack band, The Receptionists), soulful singing, and honest, emotional songs. His last EP, “Davenport, Iowa”, included the title track, which was voted finalist for “Best Song of the Year” in 2013 by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, along with the song “Lesbian Wedding”, which was voted the same honor in 2014. His most recent release “Complicated Compliments”, came out in 2016 and was also recently voted one of the “Best of the Year” by the Star Tribune.

Reading with Leni Zumas @ Moon Palace Books
3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm

In this ferociously imaginative novel, abortion is once again illegal in America, in-vitro fertilization is banned, and the Personhood Amendment grants rights of life, liberty, and property to every embryo. In a small Oregon fishing town, five very different women navigate these new barriers alongside age-old questions surrounding motherhood, identity, and freedom. “Hilarious, terrifying, and masterful–this pitch-perfect, timely novel reflects the horror and absurdity of our political landscape with a brilliance that ensures the book’s timelessness. It’s as riotously fun as it is chilling. Zumas has produced a poignant, wickedly sharp classic.” –Alissa Nutting, author of Made for Love and Tampa.

Crime Book Club – I Will Have Vengeance @ Moon Palace Books
3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join the Crime Book Club for a discussion of Maurizio de Giovanni’s I Will Have Vengeance. Get your copy at Moon Palace Books for 20% off! Commissario Ricciardi has visions. He sees the final seconds in the lives of victims of violent deaths. It is both a gift and a curse. It has helped him become one of the most successful homicide detectives on the Naples police front. But the horror of his visions has hollowed him out emotionally. He drinks too much and sleeps too little. Other than his loyal partner, Brigadier Maione, he has no friends. Naples, March 1931: a bitter wind stalks the city streets, and murder lies at its chill heart. When the world’s greatest tenor, Maestro Arnaldo Vezzi, is found brutally murdered in his dressing room at Naples’ San Carlo Theatre, the enigmatic and aloof Commissario Ricciardi is called in to investigate. Arrogant and bad-tempered, Vezzi was adored by millions and hated by hundreds, but with the livelihoods of everyone at the San Carlo opera at stake, who there would have committed such an act? Ricciardi is determined to find out. Fans of Donna Leon and Manuel Vzquez Montalbn will thrill to this fresh voice in crime fiction. I Will Have Vengeance is the first book in a quartet of masterful crime novels set in fascist Italy.
