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.

A.M. Stryker/Strange Relations/Adelyn Rose at Moon Palace Books 3032 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 9pm • Show 9:30pm
Groovy beats and vegan treats! Come to Moon Palace Books and hear some excellent groups with excellent grooves.
A.M. Stryker – This singer-songwriter is branching out from his acoustic fingerpicking styles and incorporating drum machine beats and spooky synth sounds. His friend Nathan said, “It sounds like Nick Cave trapped in outer space.”
Strange Relations – Minneapolis diary rock band Strange Relations, featuring Casey Sowa (drums/vocals) and her girlfriend Maro Helgeson (bass/synth), don’t fit the typical mold of a pop group. Building tracks around a propulsive rhythm section, Strange Relations feed off their long-term relationship to capture an energy and intimacy that cannot be forced or faked, weaving through each track like a burst of fresh air through the haze.
Adelyn Rose – Powerful sweeping sounds and incredible songwriting from Adelyn Strei and her band.

Madeline & Sam’s Magical Storytime @ 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.
PWM Family Musique Ages 0-5 Summer Session @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 10am

A fun morning of song and dance that fosters music appreciation and basic beat & pitch competency. Music is offered that catches a child’s imagination and that inspires participation, play, and learning through active music making. Children will “play with” musical materials in the same way that they learn art by “playing with” pencils, crayons, and paints or learn language by “playing with” sounds, words, and ideas. In class, we sing, dance, play instruments, laugh, and explore music and movement in a relaxed yet focused setting. Flexible environment for new students and continuing students alike.
*Come early for breakfast served from 9am at Moon Palace’s Geek Love Cafe!! House-made sourdough breakfast pizzas, english muffin breakfast sandwiches, skillet breakfasts, granola, baked goods, coffee, juice, etc. YUMM!!Finn Hall goes to the Sea Salt! @ Sea Salt Eatery, 4825 Minnehaha Ave. • 6pm

One-Shot Comics Book Club: My Brother’s Husband @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us for a discussion of Gengoroh Tagame’s Eisner Award-winning manga MY BROTHER’S HUSBAND. 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): ***WINNER OF THE 2018 EISNER AWARD FOR BEST U.S. EDITION OF INTERNATIONAL MATERIAL — ASIA*** Yaichi is a work-at-home suburban dad in contemporary Tokyo; formerly married to Natsuki, father to their young daughter, Kana. Their lives suddenly change with the arrival at their doorstep of a hulking, affable Canadian named Mike Flanagan, who declares himself the widower of Yaichi’s estranged gay twin, Ryoji. Mike is on a quest to explore Ryoji’s past, and the family reluctantly but dutifully takes him in. What follows is an unprecedented and heartbreaking look at the state of a largely still-closeted Japanese gay culture: how it’s been affected by the West, and how the next generation can change the preconceptions about it and prejudices against it. (Please note: This book is a traditional work of manga, and reads back to front and right to left.)
Reviews: “Renowned manga artist Gengoroh Tagame turns his stunning draftsmanship to a story very different from his customary fare, to delightful and heartwarming effect.” —Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home
“Heartbreaking yet hopeful, Gengoroh Tagame’s beautifully rendered meditation on the struggle for gay acceptance in today’s Japan is quietly dazzling. I am already looking forward to part two!” —Anderson Cooper, CNN
