“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

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.

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.

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

Our goal is to talk about the possibilities of a police-free Minneapolis with as many people in the city as possible, in classrooms, faith communities, book clubs, groups of neighbors, conferences, and more. The MPD150 education workgroup is dedicated to taking content from our report, website, and the work of our members to develop educational materials and come up with plans to get the word out. We’re looking for folks to join the education workgroup who are eager to develop educational materials and who want to bring presentations into their communities. The Alternatives team at MPD150 is focused on investigating potential alternatives for a future without police. Though we’re primarily focusing on the Minneapolis Police Department, we’re also looking at police and police abolition movements worldwide. We’re looking for volunteers who are detail-oriented and curious! Questions? Check out www.mpd150.com/get-involved or email info@mpd150.com
