Saturday, Aug 3

Science Book Club: “Braiding Sweetgrass” @ Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
The August Science Book Club selection is “Braiding Sweetgrass” by Robin Wall Kimmerer. Paperback editions of the books are available from Boneshaker at 20% off list price. The book is also readily available from the Hennepin County Public Library, as well as on audiobook.
From the book’s website:
“As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take us on “a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise” (Elizabeth Gilbert).
“Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, a mother, and a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings—asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass—offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices. In a rich braid of reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. For only when we can hear the languages of other beings will we be capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learn to give our own gifts in return.”
The Boneshaker Science Book Club is free and open to the public.

Tickets: https://www.musicatmoonpalace.com/events/mama-caught-fire-farewell-show-with-reid-kruger
***All ages***
Mama Caught Fire’s music explores harmonic intricacy, emotional storytelling, and the power of the voice. Their sound is centered on three-part vocal harmony, often with guitar, ukulele, or piano.

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!

Learn how early railroad and industrial entities set the stage for the working class community that grew up in the area as the City of Minneapolis expanded south of downtown, and how transportation infrastructure has changed over the years and left its mark on the community.
This tour walks about one mile and is ADA accessible.
Cara Letofsky is, among other things, a fan of local history. She worked with the Lake Street Council on the Museum in the Streets: Lake Street project, and has been involved with the Hennepin History Museum where she works to bring local history to the public.

The Two Tracks (WY), The May North, & The Thirsty River @ The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 7:30pm • Music 8:00pm • 21+ • $7 Advance • $10 Day of Show
A summer evening showcasing The Two Tracks, a very talented Americana group from Wyoming taking their first train trip to MN. The May North and Thirsty River will help welcome them to the kindest city in the midwest! Come out and support some wonderful Americana / Bluegrass on this beautiful summer evening!
The Two Tracks write songs with heart-felt emotion, and lyrics that speak to the listener with honesty, conviction and integrity. Based out of Wyoming, they’ve begun touring nationally on the success of their Postcard Town album, released in 2017, and produced by Will Kimbrough at the Grammy winning Butcher Shoppe Studio in Nashville. Their harmony-rich songs often add cello to a solid groove, creating a unique ambiance that’s all their own. The group has been featured at Red Ants Pants, Albino Skunk and Bohemian Nights among other regional festivals

The May North There’s a restless spirit flowing through the North Country that’s hard to define, and sometimes a good song is the only way to put it into proper perspective. The May North has a rare knack for doing just that—making sense of love, loss, long winters, longer highways and the shifting lines between urban and country living. With a sound that’s part folk, part bluegrass and a bit of breakneck blues, The May North pays tribute to these forms while carving its own path.

The Thirsty River Newcomers to the local bluegrass scene, The Thirsty River have already been making waves in a genre that has some stiff competition. Only a couple years into their musical journey, the band has already created a very enjoyable, bright and bouncing E.P. In the April release The St. Croix Sessions gives you an inside look to a hardworking, and highly competent group of musicians and manages to stand out against a multitude of impressive americana and bluegrass records.

Maygen Lacey & The Birdwatchers at Minnehaha Falls @ Minnehaha Falls • 7pm
Maygen Lacey & The Birdwatchers: are an American Folk-Rock group making music through contrast. In many respects, Maygen Lacey and Noah Neumann couldn’t be more different. From upbringing and musical taste to the Mpls vs. St. Paul debate, there are few things these two come together on. The shortlist includes: the importance of sarcasm, the great outdoors, quality beer, and being decent humans. Maygen & Noah draw on their distinctly different musical influences including Brandi Carlile, Florence + the Machine, and Balmorhea to create a listening experience with a Delta twist, that is warm yet adventurous. The contradictions and affirmations between these two songwriters combine to create a compelling debut EP that explores youth, family, addiction, and loss; navigating relationships with people that are in our lives beyond our control.

Joining them in the Hook’s new Mission Room is St. Paul singer-songwriter, AP Simpson and local 6 piece indie rock/dream pop/shoe-gaze band, Michael.
Minneapolis pysch-pop outfit Wild Age specialize in breezy, hook-driven tunes that are as concise as they are catchy. The band’s 2018 release, Sea of Health, dealt with feelings of isolation, mental illness and a general uncertainty about the future, juxtaposing these dark lyrical themes with sunny, earworm choruses and pop-informed melodies. Ever prolific, the band entered the studio immediately after that release to record three brand-new singles: On Tv, The Mine, and Toe Tag. These three vignettes find primary songwriter McCoy Seitz parsing his thoughts on a range of topics from celebrity to gun violence to a soundtrack of familiar-but-fresh nostalgia rock provided by bandmates Blair Ransom, Matt Ahart, August Ogren, and Leng Moua.

“The music of Saint Paul-based vocalist/guitarist A.P. SIMPSON (Alexander Preston Simpson) might be best described as psych-tinged Nick Drake. Open tunings and haunting vocal melodies are the centerpiece of Simpson’s solo debut Newly Almost Fearless, which spent three weeks on the NACC 200 this past summer. While some elements have carried over from his previous project, William Within, Simpson’s latest direction is all electric and features a talented new supporting cast: Andy Schupp (Purple Funk Metropolis) on guitar/vocals, Mitch Schumer (Grape Whales) on bass/vocals, and Tarek Abdelqader (PFM) on drums.”

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!

Making Spaces Safer with Shawna Potter @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 4pm 
Join us for an event with Shawna Potter, discussing her book Making Spaces Safer.
Shawna Potter, singer for the band War On Women, has tackled sexism and harassment in lyrics and on stage for years. Taking the battle to music venues themselves, she has trained night clubs and community spaces in how to create safer environments for marginalized people. Now she’s turned decades of experience into a clear and concise guide for public spaces of all sorts, from art galleries to bagel shops to concert halls, that want to shut down harassers wherever they show up. The steps she outlines are realistic, practical, and actionable. With the addition of personal stories, case studies, sample policies, and no-nonsense advice like “How to Flirt without Being a Creep,” she shows why safer spaces are important, while making it easier to achieve them. Eschewing theory, she assumes the reader is already an ethical creature and jumps right in with candor, punk passion, and righteous anger to get the job done!
Shawna Potter: is a musician, activist, educator, and writer. She fronts the political hardcore punk band War On Women and is the founder of Hollaback! Baltimore. Shawna trains venues for the Safer Spaces Campaign, which she also co-founded. She currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with her partner and a porch cat that visits when the weather’s nice.
