Basket Case & Brain Damage @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
Inspired by the B-movie masters, Frank Henenlotter became a key 1980s schlockmeister, crafting smarter-than-average exploitation satires designed to dig under the skin of an uptight audience.
BASKET CASE (1982) A filthy tale of vengeance played semi-straight. Surgically separated from his mutant conjoined twin, Duane (Van Hentenryck) totes the discarded sibling, in a basket, on a trip through the boroughs of New York. Together, they exact bloody, uproarious revenge on the doctors who wronged them.   FRI 7:00 SAT 9:00 SUN 5:00

BRAIN DAMAGE (1988) A disgusting blue creature attached to Brian’s (Hearst) brainstem gets him high but requires him to supply human victims in return. Hennenlotter’s second film is both a parody of drug-exploitation films and the ultimate stoner splatter movie. FRI 9:00 SAT/SUN 7:00

Come a few minutes early to grab some drinks/food and say hello. The reading starts at 4pm and will be followed by book signings and more mingling.
About Trace: “The stunning poems in Trace exist in a sublime and terrifying world filled with visual art, human atrocity, and a complex family history. These poems are breathtaking in their braided complexity, unwillingness to settle for two-dimensional revelation, and ability to face the abyss and sing, symphonically, into it.”   —Allison Benis White

“In language so lovely, rich, and full of voices that seem out of another world, this book of departures also opens many doors. Each door lets in a wild wind of longing, loss, gods, myths, war, and ragged humanity. We find ourselves in a museum maze with one entrance and one exit but that final exit, we do not want to take.”   —Heid E. Erdrich

Health Justice Now with Timothy Faust @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Single payer is the tool–health justice is the goal! Single payer healthcare is not complicated: the government pays for all care for all people. It’s cheaper than our current model, and most Americans (and their doctors) already want it. So what’s the deal with our current healthcare system, and why don’t we have something better?

In Health Justice Now, Timothy Faust explains what single payer is, why we don’t yet have it, and how it can be won. He identifies the actors that have misled us for profit and political gain, dispels the myth that healthcare needs to be personally expensive, shows how we can smoothly transition to a new model, and reveals the slate of humane and progressive reforms that we can only achieve with single payer as the springboard. In this impassioned playbook, Faust inspires us to believe in a world where we could leave our job without losing healthcare for ourselves and our kids; where affordable housing is healthcare; and where social justice links arm-in-arm with health justice for us all.

TIMOTHY FAUST‘s writing has appeared in Splinter, Jacobin, and Vice, among others. He has worked as a data scientist in the healthcare industry, before which he enrolled people in ACA programs in Florida, Georgia, and Texas, where he saw both the shortcomings of the ACA and the consequences of the Medicaid gap firsthand. Since 2017, he’s been driving around the United States in his 2002 Honda CR-V talking to people about health inequity in their neighborhoods. Tim is also the general manager of Party World Rasslin’, America’s largest party wrestling promotion, in Austin, TX. He lives in Brooklyn.

Mary Bue & the Monarchy Fall Residency at Hook & Ladder, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 6pm • Music 7pm • 21+ • $5 Suggested Donation • marybue.com • thehookmpls.com/event/mary-bue-monarchy-1/
Full intensity living without a second to take for granted — that is Mary Bue’s m.o. After moving to Minneapolis in 2016, she has found herself with new band of her dreams and 8th album in the works to reflect that intense philosophy in its title track The World is Your Lover. The world constantly provides us with opportunities to grow, change, and fall in love over and over. Every experience an opportunity to deepen. Rising out of the trauma of sexual assault as sang of in her 2017 EP The Majesty of Beasts, divorce from her husband and bandmate, the opening and closing of her yoga studio, and venturing out into an unknown future, Mary’s new album is full of power pop, piano dream waves, and layers of shimmery 90’s influenced guitars to defy and even proudly display the battle scars.

Joined by new bandmates Jeremy Ylvisaker (The Suburbs, Andrew Bird, HALEY, Jenny Lewis, Alpha Consumer), Steve Price (The Suburbs, Rex Daisy), Richard Medek (Kevin Costner, Eric Koskinen),  Molly Maher (the Queen herself!) and occasional string & harmony section Julia Floberg (Delphia Cello Quartet, Mestofonia) & Shannon Frid-Rubin (Cloud Cult, batterboy), and Crystal Meisinger on vocals — this is a band fit for a kingdom, newly dubbed Mary Bue & the Monarchy.

A prolific songwriter with 7 albums under her belt, Mary’s music touches upon archetypal themes of the human condition: love, loss, triumph, dreams, and the natural world. A longtime student of yoga and psychology since her early teens, Mary weaves sacred subject matter into her songs with inquiries into the spirit, the seeking of deeper levels of consciousness, and deep concern for the environment all mixed into her sometimes crass, real-world hue. For the early half of 2017 Mary was an Artist in Residence at the Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, NM – spending time creating in sol itude, along the Rio Grande river gorge and Sangre de Cristo mountains. She released her 7th project The Majesty of Beasts in May 2017 which landed on 2017’s Best of Minnesota Music lists for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and #3 in the City Pages. Mary’s long-time support of PAVSA (Program for Aid to Victims of Sexual Assault) as well as the release of this EP was also recognized, honoring Mary with 2017 Community Ally of the Year.

Fresh off the success of our August meetup swap, we decided to have another! This month, we’re narrowing our focus to one of our favorite parts of the house: the kitchen! Do you have an extensive collection of coffee mugs you’ve been meaning to cut down? And how many slotted spoons and spatulas does one person need? Or maybe you’re drowning in a successful garden and would like to share your bounty!
Bring your excess kitchen supplies, small appliances, garden goodies and baked/canned delicacies to our October TrashTalk meetup where we’ll be talking about buying local, cooking zero waste, and swapping our lightly-used kitchen gear!

Please note: Be prepared to take home anything that doesn’t get taken; anything brought should be given for free; and leave your large appliances (microwaves, dishwashers, etc), expired food, and oversized objects at home. Items brought should be able to sit on a table. Thank you!

Thursday Trivia: Death Cults @ Urban Forage Winery and Cider House, 3016 E Lake St • 7pm
It’s back for October 2019.  One of the truly creepiest trivia themes we’ve done.

Double Down Daredevils at the Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 7pm • Music 7:30pm

Sessa with Sister Species (at Moon Palace Books), 3032 Minnehaha Ave • Doors: 7pm • Show: 7:30pm • All Ages • Standing $10 Advance • $12 Day of Show
About Sessa: Grandeza is the brilliant debut album of Brazil-born artist Sessa. A long-time fixture of both the American and Brazilian music scenes, known for collaborating with NY guitar legend Yonatan Gat, and his co-founding of São Paulo psych-funk combo Garotas Suecas, Sessa now shares his own musical vision of “super sick modern Brazilian vibes … touching on cosmic jazz, psych, and tropicália,” as put by music-connoisseurs at Light in the Attic.

His songs are sung in Portuguese, with visceral, sexual lyrics in the vein of Caetano Veloso and melodic flourishes not unlike those of Tom Jobim. However, the music gets a deliberate minimalist treatment rarely found in contemporary Brazilian music, more reminiscent of the bareness of Leonard Cohen.

About Sister Species: Fronted by accordionist/songwriter Emily Kastrul (Betazoid, Hazel Ra), chamber-pop septet Sister Species is known for their thoughtful, dynamic arrangements and opulent three-part trumpet harmonies. Sister Species’ full length records Heavy Things Do Move and Closer Now have been hailed by music critics as “warm and luminous,” showcasing Kastrul’s vision and ability to lead 6 other band members “through the chaos to something beautiful”.

With a keen eye for the natural world and emotional terrain, Kastrul crafts raw and vibrant songs that are equal parts celebration and lament. Featuring the 3-part trumpet section of Jake Baldwin (Har Mar Superstar, McNasty Brass Band), Noah Ophoven-Baldwin (Percheron, Realtree) and Sten Johnson (McNasty Brass Band, New Sound Underground), guitarist Willow Waters (The Earth Tones, Still Unstill), bassist Ryan Hays (The Earth Tones, Still Unstill), and drummer Lars Johnson (McNasty Brass Band, Radiochurch), Sister Species’ full ensemble supports Kastrul’s intimate and intricate songwritin

 

The Thing (1982) on 35mm! @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
Trylon has shown pretty much all of my favorites throughout the years (shout out to our wonderful programmers!). My pick has been shown at our theater before, but I love it so much I thought it worth screening again. I have a deep love for a good monster movie- necessary ingredients include an interesting monster with rules and logic to its threat and behaviors, and well-done practical effects. Rob Bottin nearly killed himself making this film at age 22, and it’s scarier and more disgusting than any CG will ever be. Upon its release, critics said that the creature effects detracted from the viewer being able to relate to the characters, but I think Kurt Russell’s luxurious hair and beard more than make up for that. -Nicole Pamela, volunteer projectionist since July 2009

(limited)
The Nick Moss Band returns to the Hook & Ladder to celebrate the release of their new Alligator Records album Lucky Guy!.  Special guest, Texas guitar legend Anson Funderburgh will also be in town to join in with Nick and bandmates on the festivities. Lucky Guy! is the rough & ready new release from one of today’s most celebrated blues ensembles, The Nick Moss Band. Lucky Guy! comes out charging with a head full of creative steam and house-rockin’ abandon; delivering hard-hitting heaps of Louisiana swamp-pop, West Coast blues, New Orleans funk and electrifying proto-rock’n’roll with equal parts: authority and class. Special guest, Texas guitar legend Anson Funderburgh. Earlier this year, Moss won the Blues Music Award (BMA) for Traditional Blues Male Artist Of The Year. And now, with the odds heavily in his favor, he unleashes his dynamic new album, Lucky Guy! Combustible, cocksure blues and rootsy rock ‘n’ roll, genuine, deep and potent.  Thirteen original songs fueled by Moss’ searing, tough vocals and blazing guitar.  Up-to-the-minute lyrics melded with classic ensemble playing.

“Pure blues at its most urgently expressive. A rollicking tour de force.” -Living Blues 

Anson Funderburgh mixes up a powerful gumbo of Texas jump blues and Delta blues that can’t be found anywhere else. His band, Anson & The Rockets, won 10 Handy Awards (Blues Music Awards)!!  He has played with such greats as Lightnin’ Hopkins and has production credits with John Nemeth, Nick Nixon and Andy T. His guitar work appears on CDs by Delbert McClinton, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Nick Moss, Barrelhouse Chuck and Eric Lindell.  Funderburgh is the only artist to have played every King Biscuit Blues Festival since the first one in 1985.

“None of the younger crop of blues guitarist come close as Anson does to achieving the classic Stratocaster tone defined by Otis Rush in the ’50’s and Magic Sam in the ’60’s. The Rockets have landed and Anson is at the bridge.” (Guitar Player)

About the exhibitFifty years ago, in 1969, I was a thirteen-year-old kid, recently arrived in Chicago from the mountains of Puerto Rico. I had landed in a country on fire and was quickly drawn into the flames; the liberation struggles and mass movements of the time. Soon I was drawing caricatures of politicians, woodcuts of fugitives and leaflets for fundraisers. This exhibit features fifty years of movement history as told through my art. As someone who’s been in the struggle for a few minutes I am very aware of how our collective histories get stolen, erased, distorted or romanticized beyond recognition in ways that make them irrelevant (or even toxic) to today’s rebels. Those movements – like today’s – were mostly youth-led, and my hope is that with this exhibit we can open a space/time portal which young activists from different eras can reach through to touch each others hands, hear each other’s stories, listen to each others fears, and applaud each others victories. We set up times for inter-generational conversations, panels, performances and hands-on activities during the exhibit highlighting art, justice, organizing and collective healing.

We need to re-weave the past into the present in order to create the future we deserve. I invite you to come be part of it.

Art Opening: THERE AND BACK AGAIN: TWIN CITIES DIY “THINGS CREATED, BUILT AND STILL MAKING” • Vine Art Center, 2637 27th Ave S • 6-9pm • www.vineartscenter.org
This exhibit focuses on the accomplishments of DIY communities of the 90’s – things built based on its values, interests and aims and were centered around the giant hydra of ‘punk, punk like, associates’ and other outside mainstream groups. It was more than the physical spaces created and more about the community that came about. Art, music, film and a scene that was created in reaction / response to the commercial world. Contributions from such luminaries as Extreme Noise, Triple Rock, Grumpy’s, Profane Existence, along with Illustrators like Dwitt, Lance Ward, and Bill Hauser making fliers and album covers, to individuals making films to document the moment.

Sequoyah Murray with Taylor Johnson and Temezgen @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • Doors: 7pm • Show: 8pm • All Ages • $10 Advance • $12 Day of Show
At just 22 years old, Sequoyah Murray is crafting the kind of concise, singular musical statements that many artists strive for their whole careers. His mutant brand of modern soul is as deeply eclectic as it is instantly arresting, a quality that drew early comparisons to Arthur Russell. Like Russell, Murray has a boundless, playful approach to composition; an incredible breadth of vision balanced by concise editing. Futuristic electronics, West and North African influenced polyrhythms, gospel vocals and psychedelic Tropicália textures blend seamlessly, anchored by his astounding three-octave baritone. Before You Begin, Murray’s debut album, demonstrates the immense scope of his artistry. Composed, played and produced almost entirely by Murray himself, the album takes the listener on a deeply personal journey through youth.Before You Begin traces Murray’s “historical fiction of his own life,” as he puts it. It is as sensuous and blissful as it is blue, mining memory to craft vivid, dreamlike pieces that feel instantly relatable yet otherworldly. The album is influenced by Murray’s experience growing up in one of the world’s music capitals. Atlanta’s hip-hop and trap heritage finds its place in his inventive lyricism, future-seeking sonics and DIY approach to music-making. Although Murray points to rap as one influence, he cites Atlanta’s lesser-known jazz and free-improv scene as facilitating his development as an artist. Before You Begin distills an enormous wealth of ideas, emotion and detail into a stunning debut. Murray’s joyful energy is infectious on his bravely intimate self-portrait, painted with an inventive and unexpected collection of sounds.

Taylor Johnson (The Project Ivy) Hello, beautiful ones. My name is Taylor Johnson, and I’m a South Minneapolis native who has been honored to closely collaborate with some of the best, most innovative and electric artists in a city I consider the creative citadel. I’ve been mentored by brilliant spirits; some here, some gone. All present. On the 5th, it is the first opportunity I have to tell my story in the only way that I believe does it justice. I used to consider myself an entertainer. Now, I still hold some of that entertainment in my work, but I’m moving closer to becoming my final form: a healer. What I play now has proven to heal, because it healed me. At the beginning of this year, I hit a low point from which I almost did not return. Birthing this new music and putting it into the world, in addition to surrounding myself with powerful fairies, I started seeing myself not only heal from devastation, but elevate to creative heights I have never experienced. It is now my calling to share 2 intimate projects.

Temezgen is an RnB/Alternative singer-songwriter and producer from the Twin Cities. You find his music on various streaming services such as iTunes and Spotify, and also on Soundcloud here: www.soundcloud.com/temezgen

After a scandalous mishap at a wedding, however, they are required to pretend to be best friends lest their enmity spark an international incident. Not surprisingly, their hate turns into a bromance. When Henry kisses Alex, the First Son goes into a mild gay panic, but their snide texts soon become gushy emails ending with romantic quotes.
