A Magical Story Time @ 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 Sunday between 11 AM and Noon starting June 9th to experience a story time that celebrates every child for the magical person that they are!

Dreaded Inheritance: The Crowded House @ Peace Coffee, 3262 Minnehaha Ave • 5:30pm
Are you freaked about the idea of inheriting your parents’ lifetime accumulation of stuff in the not-nearly-distant-enough future?
The emotional labor, investment of time, and direct financial costs involved in emptying a family estate on someone else’s behalf cannot be understated. Our work with families dealing with these sorts of circumstances has made us intensely aware of the guilt, exhaustion, frustration, and conflict that often arise when tackling the pig in the python: a filled house, frequently offered up as ‘your inheritance.’
Our objective is to help second generation family members anticipate, and be aware of a series of issues and stages common with this major life transition. This workshop has a specific environmental angle: we’ve seen too many families default to filling a roll-off (or four) only to deal with the emotional aftermath of intensified regret: the throwing away of truckloads of useful things that belonged to important people is something we want to help you avoid.
This will not be a silver bullet, nor will we offer platitudes. Instead, during this ‘tell it to me straight’ info session, we’ll offer a new paradigm for the possession and divestment of material goods, explain the current market for secondhand items, discuss the unique opportunities and challenges that present for those with close connections to aging family members, and provide resources to help you and your sibs empty that house with or without the property’s primary resident involved.
You’ll leave the event with a clear understanding of your options and a list of resources, contacts, and strategies intended to help you and your family keep as much of a lifetime’s treasures out of the waste stream as possible.
If you’d like to host this programming for your community, customer base, or private event, please contact us to learn more and/or schedule. Skype sessions available for those outside the Twin Cities metro.

The Twins of Franklin at Minnehaha Falls • 7pm
The Twins of Franklin (7:00-8:30pm)
The Twins of Franklin are not, in fact, twins. They are two dear friends and Minneapolis musicians – Becky Shaheen and Laura Lou. But after being regularly mistaken for them for years as best friends, roommates, and each other’s solo backup singers, they decided to embrace the label when they formed their new act.
Turns out, a decade of singing together means the pair can do some pretty neat things. Like delivering tight, delicate harmonies that can suddenly become one world conquering belts or even encouraging a group singalong when covering your favorite Goo Goo Dolls song.
To the Twins, nothing is more fun than music-ing together, as a duo or as a full six piece band. That’s the feeling you’re let in on when experiencing the Twins of Franklin’s delightful ballads and zesty uptempo folk songs live.
The Twins are in the process of recording new original songs in duo form and plan on releasing their first music as The Twins of Franklin in the Spring of 2019!

Friday, Aug 9

Planet of the Vampires (1965) @ Trylon Cinema, 2810 E 33rd St • 7pm
After a team of astronauts lands on the planet Aura, they begin violently and inexplicably attacking one another. This frighteningly atmospheric art film influenced Alien and every space-horror movie that followed it.
FPA ❍ rachel lime ❍ The Melancholy Boy @ Music at Moon Palace, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 9pm • tix are $8 advance / $10 at the door • Buy them here: https://www.musicatmoonpalace.com/events/rachel-lime-fpa-the-melancholy-boy

𝒓𝒂𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒍 𝒍𝒊𝒎𝒆: https://soundcloud.com/nasadotgov
Rachel Lime left her home state of Minnesota in 2017, more or less for good. She’s returning for a weekend with lil audio postcards from the places she’s been: Korea, her country of birth—and Australia, whose vibrant music scene inspired her to compile & compose what will become her debut EP “Sap”. These songs, pieced together on garageband over many years, haphazardly recorded across cities and continents, hope to ride that perfect, silvery line between the mystical and ~the bop™~
𝑭𝑷𝑨 (𝒔𝒐𝒍𝒐 𝒔𝒆𝒕): https://fpa.fanlink.to/theloved1 • https://www.instagram.com/francespriya/
“The Loved 1” marks the beginning of a new adventure for Minneapolis native FPA. Written, and composed this past winter, the EP reflects on love and loss, grounded in trap beats and beautiful instrumentation. FPA’s seemingly effortless flow, and soft harmonies are consistently at the forefront of her work, and reminiscent of artists like H.E.R. and Tierra Whack.
𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑴𝒆𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒄𝒉𝒐𝒍𝒚 𝑩𝒐𝒚: https://soundcloud.com/themelancholyboy
A very melancholy boy.

Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound bring forth a funky, lyrically charged racket that is explosive, yet intimate.
Taking cues from the dance bands of western Louisiana (and his native Midwest,), the streets (and 45’s) of New Orleans, touring African and Caribbean combos and the soul, funk & blues of his youth, Paul Cebar is a masterful synthesist of rhythmic culture.  His time spent in his second home of New Orleans, as a musicologist in Florida, and as a journeyman wanderer in Cuba, is reflected in his musical worldview.
Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound’s latest album, “Fine Rude Thing” is out now. The songs “Baby Shake” and “You Owe it to Me” feature Cebar’s unique mixture of R&B, Caribbean and New Orleans style.
Paul Cebar – http://paulcebar.com/
Jon Rodine is a Minnesota-based singer/songwriter. Drawing on sources like Dan Penn, Doug Sahm, Bob Dylan and beyond, his music is song-driven, a blend of Americana, groove-oriented rock’n’roll and country soul. His most recent 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”. He’s shared the bill with artists like Ralph Stanley, Fred Eaglesmith, Tom Russell, The Pines and Jimmy LaFave. He plays and has recorded with some the finest musicians in the Midwest – Dave Ray & Tony Glover, Erik Koskinen & Molly Maher, Paul Cebar, Benson Ramsey (Pines), Steve Kaul (Brass Kings), and Dan “Daddy Squeeze” Newton. Jon Rodine – http://jonrodine.com/

A Magical Story Time @ 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 Sunday between 11 AM and Noon starting June 9th to experience a story time that celebrates every child for the magical person that they are!

There There: Minneapolis Books & Bars @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm • FREE
Tommy Orange’s shattering novel follows twelve characters from Native communities: all traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow, all connected to each other in ways they may not yet realize. There is Jacquie Red Feather, newly sober and working to make it back to the family she left behind. Dene Oxendene, who is pulling his life back together after his uncle’s death, has come to work at the powwow to honor his memory. Fourteen-year-old Orvil has come to perform traditional dance for the very first time. Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight of the urban Native American – grappling with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion and sacrifice and heroism.
Winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award, a National Book Critics Circle Prize, and widely considered one of the best books of 2018, There Thereis at once poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, utterly contemporary and always unforgettable.

Percussive Dance Workshops with Nic Gareiss @ Ballare Teatro Performing Arts Center, 4259 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
7-8pm : Percussive Dance Lab
8-9pm : Appalachian Flatfooting
$25 per class or $40 for both
Pre-register at www.kaleenamiller.com/store OR cash or card at the door
Percussive Dance Lab
This masterclass for dancers with percussive dance experience (tap, flamenco, step dance, clogging, etc.) is designed to hone your practice and give you tools to improve articulation, phrasing, and technique. Using an intersectional approach, participants will be guided through a series of exercises drawing on a myriad of rhythm-making dance styles and their symbiotic relationship with, and as, music, enriching your percussive relationship with the floor through creativity and improvisation.
Appalachian Flatfooting
Flatfooting and clogging are solo, rural, freestyle forms of American percussive dance originating in the Appalachian mountains with connections to Western European, Native American and West African dance. Using the toe, heel, and ball of the foot to strike and slide across the floor, flatfooting articulates the rhythms of mountain fiddle and banjo music. Wear comfortable leather-soled shoes for this class.
About Nic Gareiss:
Named by Dance Magazine as one of 2019’s “25 to Watch,” dancer and dance researcher Nic Gareiss has been hailed by the New York Times for his “dexterous melding of Irish and Appalachian dance” and called “the most inventive and expressive step dancer on the scene” by the Boston Herald. He reimagines movement as a musical practice, recasting dance as medium that appeals to both eyes and ears. Originally from Michigan, Gareiss draws from many percussive dance traditions, weaving together a dance technique facilitating his love of improvisation, traditional footwork vocabulary, and musical collaboration. He has concertized in fifteen countries for over ten years with many of the luminaries of traditional music and dance including The Chieftains, The Gloaming, Bruce Molsky, Sandy Silva, Ira Bernstein, Colin Dunne, Alasdair Fraser, Phil Wiggins, Liz Carroll, and Darol Anger. He has performed at London’s Barbican Centre, the Irish National Concert Hall, the Munich Philharmonic, and the Kennedy Center. Nic holds degrees in Anthropology and Music from Central Michigan University and a MA in Ethnochoreology from the University of Limerick. www.nicgareiss.com

Reading from Hope in the Struggle @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us for a reading from Hope in the Struggle with Josie R. Johnson and her co-writers Arleta Little and Carolyn Holbrook.
How a Black woman from Texas became one of the most well-known civil rights activists in Minnesota, detailing seven remarkable decades of fighting for fairness in voting, housing, education, and employment.
Why do you continue to work on issues of justice? young Black people ask Josie Johnson today, then, perhaps in the same breath, How do you maintain hope? This book, a lifetime in the making, is Josie’s answer. A memoir about shouldering the cause of social justice during the darkest hours and brightest moments for civil rights in America—and, specifically, in Minnesota—Hope in the Struggle shines light on the difference one person can make. For Josie Johnson, this has meant making a difference as a Black woman in one of the nation’s whitest states.
Josie’s story begins in a tight-knit community in Texas, where the unfairness of the segregated South, so antithetical to the values she learned at home, sharpened a sense of justice that guides her to this day. From the age of fourteen, when she went door to door with her father in Houston to campaign against the Poll Tax, to the moment in 2008 when, as a delegate at the Democratic National Convention, she cast her vote for Barack Obama for president, she has been at the forefront of the politics of civil rights. Her memoir offers a close-up picture of what that struggle has entailed, whether working as a community organizer for the Minneapolis Urban League or lobbying for fair housing and employment laws, investigating civil rights abuses or co-chairing the Minnesota delegation to the March on Washington, becoming the first African American to serve on the University of Minnesota’s Board of Regents or creating the university’s Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs with a focus on minority affairs and diversity. An intimate view of civil rights history in the making, Hope in the Struggle is a uniquely inspiring life story for these current dark and divisive times, a testament to how one determined soul can make the world a better place.

Queer Book Club: Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join the Queer Book Club for a discussion of Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl by Andrea Lawlor. Get your copy at Moon Palace Books for 20% off!
“HOT” –Maggie Nelson
“TIGHT” –Eileen Myles
“DEEP” –Michelle Tea
It’s 1993 and Paul Polydoris tends bar at the only gay club in a university town thrumming with politics and partying. He studies queer theory, has a dyke best friend, makes zines, and is a flaneur with a rich dating life. But Paul’s also got a secret: he’s a shapeshifter. Oscillating wildly from Riot Grrrl to leather cub, Paul transforms his body and his gender at will as he crossed the country–a journey and adventure through the deep queer archives of struggle and pleasure.
Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl is a riotous, razor-sharp bildungsroman whose hero/ine wends his/her way through a world gutted by loss, pulsing with music, and opening into an array of intimacy and connections.

Matthew Griswold at Minnehaha Falls • 7pm
Matthew Griswold (7:00-8:30pm)
Performing songwriter Matthew Griswold, made the transition from US Army Soldier to Professional Songwriter/Musician in 2008 and has been going full force ever since. After a short stint in Nashville, and securing a publishing deal with Universal Music, Matthew headed back to his native land of Minnesota and began his career of writing and producing songs for Film and Television. Though every songwriter dreams of a chance that they will one day sign a major publishing deal and have millions of people hear their songs around the world, Matthew’s true passion was always being the personal messenger. He began to dedicate time between writing sessions to going out and performing for people in a rapidly growing market of restaurants, vineyards, brewpubs and taprooms around the northern midwest and now in NYC. He found a natural comfort in providing more casual crowds with a well crafted soundscape to pair with an evening muse. As an artist who never desired “Rock Star fame”, this was a better fit for his career over facing the spotlight heat of nightclub touring.
