Yoga w/Dallas at Powderhorn Park Outdoor Stage • 9:30am • All are welcome
This accessible class is designed to help students discover their personal practice in a supportive space. Rather than expecting students to conform to arbitrary shapes, my goal is to create opportunities for students to feel more relaxed and confident in their bodies, regardless of experience or physical mobility. Expect a class with dynamic sequencing, some mindfulness practice, and messaging that celebrates who you already are. Stage is located on the 10th avenue side of the park, 32nd street down the hill toward the lake.

Maeth Goes To Hell ft. Straya, Lungs, Dahlheimer @ Moon Palace Books 
3032 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 8pm • Here’s how it’s gonna go: 8:30pm Dahlheimer • 9:15pm Lungs • 10pm Straya • 10:45pm Maeth • 11:30 I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying • This show is 21+ with a $5-$10 sliding scale cover charge.
I know things have seemed bright and cheery in the Maeth camp lately but the horrible truth is that, behind the scenes, a private war has been raging. There are some in the band who believe La Croix, Florida’s most steadfast purveyor of early 90’s graphic design, to be the only serious choice for flavored sparkling water. Others prefer the quaint Midwestern charm of Mendota Springs, and when our practice space’s vending machine kept switching from one to the other as if they were somehow interchangeable beverages, it sparked animosity not yet seen since the Clear Cola War of the early 90s.
Our guitarist/flutist Sam decided the strain of mediating this cold war between factions both so near and dear to his heart had grown too great, so he upped and decided to move out east to become a rabbi. With this sacrificial gesture, he has finally brought tentative peace to our humble City Sound studio space. Unfortunately, the only way for us to retain this fragile ceasefire is for the remaining members of Maeth to go our separate ways, never to bicker about bubbly water or write dank riffs together ever again. Seriously though, Sam is leaving Minnesota this summer to begin his rabbinical studies and we couldn’t be happier for him. Maeth simply wouldn’t be the same band without him, so this feels like the right time for us to go to sleep. We have a long history with every band playing this last show of ours and we’re thrilled to spend the night surrounded by dear friends who have made the Twin Cities such a loving and inspiring home for us over all these years. To everyone still reading this – we love you. Thank you for everything

All Proceeds To The Artist Tim Sparks and Phil Heywood are two of the reasons why Minnesota is known nationwide as a hotbed for acoustic fingerstyle guitar. Both guitarists are widely recognized for their solo careers and have inspired seasoned pros and aspiring students alike with their unique talents. Both are former National Fingerpicking Champions who have gone on to release numerous recordings and compile lengthy performance resumés. About ten years ago Tim and Phil began to work up duets and perform together. They’ve built an exciting and wide-ranging repertoire drawing from American folk/blues/early jazz roots, some brilliant forays into “world” music, and a few well-chosen pop obscurities. The two have honed a dynamic concert format that showcases each guitarist’s solo selections and culminates in the full glory of two world-class fingerpickers going at it together.

Minnesota Peacebuilding Film Series @ Birchwood Cafe 
3311 E 25th St • 7pm
Join us for this month’s film, “Poverty, Inc.”. The films are free and open to the public, but space is limited – please reserve your seat! The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore. From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem? Peacebuilding films are typically the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Birchwood Cafe. Bring your appetites for positive social justice change and good real food!

Bollywood Dance (FREE) at CANDO • 7pm
OIBY, in collaboration with Bollywood Dance Scene and The Central Neighborhood, Minneapolis, is very happy to bring Bollywood Dance to the community. We offer FREE Bollywood Dance every 4th Tuesday of the month!! Choreographer and Bollywood Dance Scene founding member Divya Maiya says, “Bollywood is inspired by various dance forms like classical, folk, as well as street dances. So it’s a huge mash-up of those forms along with hip-hop, belly dancing, and jazz. It does not conform to any strict format. People of all age groups can dance together. It does not require partners. It is over the top ridiculous and you need that to forget all the serious and grim happenings in your life.”

Reading with Miriam McNamara @ Moon Palace Books
3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us for a reading with Miriam McNamara, author of the new book The Unbinding of Mary Reade. A clever, romantic novel based on the true story of a girl who disguised herself as a boy to sail with the infamous pirates Anne Bonny and Calico Jack–and fell in love with Anne Bonny. There’s no place for a girl in Mary’s world. Not in the home of her mum, desperately drunk and poor. Not in the household of her wealthy granny, where no girl can be named an heir. And certainly not in the arms of Nat, her childhood love who never knew her for who she was. As a sailor aboard a Caribbean merchant ship, Mary’s livelihood–and her safety–depends on her ability to disguise her gender. At least, that’s what she thinks is true. But then pirates attack the ship, and in the midst of the gang of cutthroats, Mary spots something she never could have imagined: a girl pirate. The sight of a girl standing unafraid upon the deck, gun and sword in hand, changes everything. In a split-second decision, Mary turns her gun on her own captain, earning herself the chance to join the account and become a pirate alongside Calico Jack and Anne Bonny. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=2677

“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 at The Hook and Ladder Theater
3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors: 7:30pm / Music: 8pm / 21+ $7 Advance / $10 Day of Show
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.

Boneshaker Book Club: Heart Berries @ Boneshaker Books 
2002 23rd Ave S • 9-11am • FREE
The Boneshaker Book Club selection is “Heart Berries” by Terese Marie Mailhot. Copies are now in-stock, and are available at a 20% discount for all readers. 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 and hope you’ll join us for this month’s club! **No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, etc.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Heart Berries is a powerful, poetic memoir of a woman’s coming of age on the Seabird Island Indian Reservation in the Pacific Northwest. Having survived a profoundly dysfunctional upbringing only to find herself hospitalized and facing a dual diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder and bipolar II disorder; Terese Marie Mailhot is given a notebook and begins to write her way out of trauma. The triumphant result is Heart Berries, a memorial for Mailhot’s mother, a social worker and activist who had a thing for prisoners; a story of reconciliation with her father―an abusive drunk and a brilliant artist―who was murdered under mysterious circumstances; and an elegy on how difficult it is to love someone while dragging the long shadows of shame.

 ** Boneshaker Books is ADA accessible, with no stairs or steps leading into, or in, the store. We have one single-stall, all-gender restroom. Boneshaker is located off the #2 and 67 bus lines, and is a short distance from the Blue Line light rail. Multiple bikeways provide access to the store, and ample bike parking is available. For people driving, there is plenty of street parking.

The Hub’s 14th Annual Used Bike Extravaganza! @ The Hub Bike Co-op 
3016 Minnehaha Ave • 10am
It’s finally summer and that means it’s time for our annual Used Bike Extravaganza! If you’re new to the UBE, think of this event as a huge consignment fair, with The Hub as the host! Every year, our community members drop off hundreds of bikes to sell in the Extravaganza. All these bikes are then available for purchase on the second weekend in June.
Looking to SELL a Bike?: Our Extravaganza is an opportunity for customers to sell their bikes and get the full amount in store credit. All bikes must be in safe, rideable condition (besides, the better condition they are in, the faster they sell!). Sellers bring their bikes in the week before the sale to get priced.
Looking to BUY a Bike?: For those who are looking, the Extravaganza brings in a wide variety of bikes – from kids’ bikes to cruisers to road bikes and sometimes even a tandem or two! The perfect bike may be waiting for you…Don’t miss out! Bring a helmet for test rides if you have one! Much, much more info available at our website (http://www.thehubbikecoop.org/about/used-bike-extravaganza-pg146.htm), and at our “How to Buy a Used Bike Seminar” (which will be on Friday, June 8th at 6pm at our 3016 Minnehaha Ave store)

Reading with Ahmed Ismail Yusuf @ Moon Palace Books 
3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us for a reading with Ahmed Ismail Yusuf, author of the new collection of stories The Lion’s Binding Oath. Religious and ethnic conflict may be the Horn of Africa’s most enduring recent legacy. But beneath its recent history of war and displacement lies human stories—families, clans, lovers, neighbors, and friends, all bound together through common cultural, religious, and historical ties. The Lion’s Binding Oath, Ahmed Ismail Yusuf’s collection of short stories, introduces readers to the people of Somalia and their struggles: their humanity, faith, identity, friendship, and family bonds, as whispers of war grow louder around them. Through stories that span the years before and during Somali’s civil war, Yusuf weaves together Somalia’s political, social, and religious conflicts with portrayals of the country’s love of poetry, music, and soccer. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=265

Books & Bars: The Hate U Give @ Moon Palace Books 
3032 Minnehaha Ave • Social 6pm • Discussion 7pm
We discuss The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Presented by The Loft Literary Center “‘Young adult’ is a critical age, and I knew that if I showed Starr going through these types of things, I could provide a mirror for some young adults and a window for adults—a lot of [whom] read young adult books—who might bring open hearts to a story that I told from her perspective, when they might normally look at a topic like this and say, ‘No.’” But thanks to Thomas’s absorbing storytelling, those who read The Hate U Give will be right beside Starr, grappling with understanding entrenched prejudice, where it comes from, and what role she—and those at home—have in exposing and combatting it. – The Atlantic

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. You will also have the opportunity to sit down with city planners and fellow attendees for in-depth discussions on specific action steps listed in the draft plan.

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.
