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

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 May:
Please 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.

The Longfellow Community Council regularly gathers resident input in the form of surveys to inform action on important issues in Greater Longfellow. The Hi-Lake Survey was developed as part of LCC’s work to activate decision-makers and public officials around needed safety, livability, and equity improvements at the Hiawatha-Lake Street Interchange.
To read more about LCC’s work on the Hi-Lake Interchange, go to: https://longfellow.org/tag/hiawatha-lake-intersection/
The Hi-Lake Interchange Survey was offered in paper-form at LCC’s General Membership Meeting on April 24. If you completed the survey at the event, please DO NOT complete an online version. Both in-person and online results will be compiled and made available online, after the survey closes on Monday, July 23.

New Elements: New Elements is an artist collective with one mission: to make you groove. With soaring guitar solos, beautiful synth interludes, and a big, fat rhythm section.

Reading with Hanne Ørstavik @ Moon Palace Books 
3032 Minnehaha Ave  • 5pm
Join us for a reading with Hanne Ørstavik, author of Love. A mother and son move to a village in northern Norway, each ensconced in their own world. Their distance has fatal consequences. It’s the day before Jon’s birthday, and a travelling carnival has come to the village. Jon goes out to sell lottery tickets for his sports club, and Vibeke is going to the library. From here on we follow the two individuals on their separate journeys through a cold winter’s night – while a sense of uneasiness grows. Love illustrates how language builds its own reality, and thus how mother and son can live in completely separate worlds. This distance is found not only between human beings, but also within each individual. This novel shows how such distance may have fatal consequences. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=2447

His latest album “Last Star”–his first collection of original material–has been getting notice around the country. “Eleven songwriting gems” says Mondophonic.com, but “his strongest asset is his voice”. “Authentic, unpretentious…funky, heartbreaking”, said Ellen Stanley, in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. #FreeMusicWednesdays

Hearts Beat Loud (co-presented by 89.3 the Current) @ Trylon Cinema
2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
MN Premiere Tickets: $10 in advance • $12 door
Film Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh6F2QqWExc&t=2s As single dad Frank (Nick Offerman) prepares to send hardworking daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to UCLA pre-med, he also reluctantly realizes he has to accept that his own record-store business is failing. Hoping to stay connected with his daughter through their shared love of music, he urges her to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into an actual band. Channeling Sam’s resistance into a band name, they unexpectedly find We’re Not a Band’s first song turning into a minor Spotify hit, and they use their songwriting efforts to work through their feelings about the life changes each of them faces. Offerman and Clemons provide genuine warmth and chemistry as father and daughter, and they collaborate spiritedly on their characters’ catchy, heartfelt musical offerings, while Toni Collette and Sasha Lane contribute charming and multi-faceted performances of their own as the pair’s respective potential love interests. Director Brett Haley foregrounds sincerity and affection in this gentle, evocative ode to the bittersweetness of everyday life. Music by Keegan DeWitt (Wild Cub) Dir. Brett Haley, 2018, USA, 93 min, DCP

Sabina Ali: – a civic leader, problem solver, and dreamer who gets things done – will talk about her experience transforming lives through parks, as the featured speaker at our Next Generation of Parks™ event. As a newcomer to her Thorncliffe Park community in Toronto, Ontario, Ali saw that the local public park was not serving the people who lived around it, so she got to work changing and improving the way this communal space served its neighborhood. Her work has been recognized internationally as a model for community-involved placemaking. “Being a newcomer,” Ali has said, “I was really keen to know how the system works, and helping these people was helping me.” Park lovers, community activists and volunteers, creative problem solvers, engaged citizens, and new community members, will enjoy hearing about Ali’s approach, which focuses specifically on empowering women and youth to help build spaces that serve their communities best. Following Ali’s talk there will be a question and answer session with Sabina Ali, Senator Patricia Torres Rey, and moderated by KMOJ’s Lissa Jones. Reception to follow event. About Sabina Ali Sabina Ali is the Chair and founding member of Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee – created by residents to advance a transformative vision for Thorncliffe Park and the surrounding community.
