Information about the three additional sites (North, East, and South) can be found on the EVS website. These additional Early Vote Centers are intended to accommodate for both the historic spike in absentee voting, and to help make in-person absentee voting more accessible for all Minneapolis voters.

Consider The Source, The Galactic Cowboy Orchestra at The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 7pm • Music 7:30 • 21+ • $10 Advance •  $13 Day of Show
Indeed Brewing Company & Nobool Presents Consider The Source / The Galactic Cowboy Orchestra Thursday, November 8 at The Hook and Ladder Theater A night when Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fuses with Art Rock Jazz! Start the countdown; 10… 9… 8… Consider the Source NYC trio Consider the Source defy easy description. If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, it’d probably just sound like a CTS tribute band. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion”, the band’s music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal. A relentless touring schedule has won the band a fervent following from California to Israel, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies and jazz cats to corpse-painted headbangers and prog geeks. Galactic Cowboy Orchestra The Galactic Cowboy Orchestra has been freakin’ minds for 6 years! Since 2009, the band has stretched their own musical limits with album after album of intensely energetic ART-ROCK. Definition of ART-ROCK: A type of rock music, often with poetic lyrics, characterized by sophisticated harmonic, dynamic and technical complexity based on forms derived from classical (and jazz) music and requiring performers of considerable training and skill. It sounds so serious, but when you combine that type of music with four fun-loving musicians who don’t take themselves too seriously and who have a love of so much music beyond art-rock (which is why the band covers songs from Otis Rush’s All Your Love to Whipping Post to When the Levee Breaks to YYZ), you get a bit of magic in live music form. The band writes and performs music that excites them and has a blast doing it! The GCO appreciates and aspires to superior musicianship while combining their love of a good riff, hummable melody and groovy jam… over a jazz/jazz-rock musical bedrock. It all culminates in an intensely energetic live performance because “we freakin’ love what we do and love that the fans dig it too!!

Tile Factory Mosaic IPA Release at The Howe! @ The Howe Daily Kitchen & Bar, 3675 Minnehaha Ave • 4pm
Releasing Tile Factory Mosaic IPA in store on Thursday NOV. 1st for FINNEGANS Drink Like You Care Campaign! Thursday, Nov. 8th is your day to come & Meet the Brewer while sipping on the once tap room exclusive brew NOW at The Howe! Plus Our Crew Helped With Brewing!

Anthony Horse Road – Visiting Artist Talk @ Regis Center for Art, InFlux Space 405, 21st Ave S • 7pm
“Wanble nica: Orphan” Lakotah Traditional/Ceremonial Artist Tony Horse Road will speak about separation and coming back home to place, culture, family and relatives. “We will walk in both worlds without compromise. We will educate ourselves holistically while protecting the integrity of our inherent and Treaty Rights. Our right to lands, independence and freedom. This right … will exist throughout eternity. As long as the sun shines, the grass grows and the rivers flow our treaties will be sacred.” – Nákhota Oyáte For eleven years, Anthony Horse Road struggled to bring the ceremonial doll he calls Waki-ča Hey Wa-na into being. “I couldn’t do it until I approached it through ceremony,” he says. “I went to the buffalo calf pipe and I asked to do that doll. They gave me a vision of what they wanted.” The “they” he refers to are “spiritual qualities.” His drive to bring ceremony ready Wawi-ch’ye wannato life harkens back to a vision seen by his great-great grandfather, Arnold Iron Shell, relayed to Horse Road through his mother. This event is free and open to the public. Tickets or reservations are not required.

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. Come out to Boneshaker Books every Saturday between 11 AM and Noon starting June 9th to experience a story time that celebrates every child for the magical person that they are! Let’s have some fun!!

Science Book Club: The Botany of Desire @ Boneshaker Books,2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
The August 4 science book club selection is “The Botany of Desire,” by Michael Pollan. Copies are in stock at Boneshaker for $13.60, a 20% discount off the regular paperback price. Boneshaker’s Science Book Club reads books that are science-related, but hopefully accessible to those without an academic background in science. We seek to select titles that are in line with Boneshaker’s mission of social justice. **No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, etc.** 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. ABOUT THE BOOK: The book that helped make Michael Pollan, the New York Times bestselling author of How to Change Your Mind, Cooked and The Omnivore’s Dilemma, one of the most trusted food experts in America. Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers’ genes far and wide. In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship. He masterfully links four fundamental human desires—sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and control—with the plants that satisfy them: the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato. In telling the stories of four familiar species, Pollan illustrates how the plants have evolved to satisfy humankind’s most basic yearnings. And just as we’ve benefited from these plants, we have also done well by them. So who is really domesticating whom?
