“Little Man’s Chris Perricelli was kidnapped by aliens in 1978 while he was driving his Camaro listening to T. Rex on his 8-Track player, and was recently returned to Earth, but no one told him he was gone for nearly 30 years – and that is why we love him so much.” – Dave Rachac, How Was The Show The Carnegies have been generating generating a local buzz among both older musicheads who appreciate their classic aesthetic and young fans who think the brothers and their bandmates are on to something newer.

LOTT, Julis Christi Ann, and Andy Cook at Moon Palace3032 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 8:30pm • Music 9pm • $7 • All ages
LOTT:  https://www.facebook.com/lottband/ The core inspiration for LOTT’s compositions is the Romantic Period of classical music. LOTT has been likened to a modern day torch singer of indie music – both in her lyrical themes and vocal styling. She has been greatly influenced by Patsy Cline’s catalogue of songs about unrequited love and heartbreak. LOTT was awarded “Best Vocalist” in 2016 and “Best Acoustic Performer” in City Pages Best Of the Twin Cities 2015. “…With a looping pedal hooked up to her instrument, Ottman layers intricate melodies that combine classical beauty with an adventurous ear for contemporary experimentation not unlike Andrew Bird.
Julia Christi Annhttps://www.facebook.com/julia.christi.ann/ Minneapolis native Julia Christi Ann, singer-songwriter with roots in classic country and Americana folk, with a splash of blues for good measure. Julia’s soulful voice is haunting, inspiring, and she writes from a place of grief and hope.
Andy Cook: www.facebook.com/andycooktunes What’s a man, anyway? It’s the central question at the heart of Minnesota-based songwriter Andy Cook’s new EP Modern Man—a 22-minute indie-rock/Americana ride that stokes twinges of nostalgia with jangly guitars, articulate synth lines, and driving percussion. The EP follows Cook digging into life in this hyper-digital age as the music harkens back to classic American songwriters. Modern Man takes a hard look at the present in its lyric-driven, sonically-rich landscape. “We’re living in a wicked world, where nobody believes anything they’ve heard…just a picture of a pretty face, with lonely eyes and a made-up grace,” we hear over a bouncing guitar line in the lead track “Swirl”—a song reminiscent of Real Estate or Kurt Vile, and that oscillates between pessimism of social media-curated life, and optimism that we can be happy in our own shoes. These observations are less criticism than they are experience, from the point of view of an artist who is finding his own voice and a comfort in presenting this music without trying to be something he’s not.

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.

Yoga w/Dallas at Powderhorn Park Outdoor Stage @ 9:30am • All are welcome.

Expect a class with dynamic sequencing, some mindfulness practice, and messaging that celebrates who you already are. Stage is located on the 10th avenue side of the park, 32nd street down the hill toward the lake.

The next installment of Moon Palace Books’ THAT MOVIE WAS A BOOK? club will be Sunday, July 29 and we’ll be riding the rails with Jim Tully’s hobo memoir BEGGARS OF LIFE, with a screening of the great William A. Wellman silent film starring Louise Brooks, featuring live accompaniment by Dreamland Faces. This is the first silent film we’ve ever done for the book club! Book club screening takes place at the Trylon on Sunday, July 29 at 3:00 (or you can watch the film at the Trylon on Friday or Saturday at 7 if you’d like), followed by a discussion at Moon Palace Books at 5:15PM! Copies of the book are available now at Moon Palace Books at 20% off. Trylon screening: http://www.trylon.org/film/beggars-of-life/2018-07-29/ A bestseller in 1924, this vivid piece of outlaw history has inexplicably faded from the public consciousness. Jim Tully takes us across the seamy underbelly of pre-WWI America on freight trains, and inside hobo jungles and brothels while narrowly averting railroad bulls (cops) and wardens of order. Written with unflinching honesty and insight, Beggars of Life follows Tully from his first ride at age thirteen, choosing life on the road over a deadening job, through his teenage years of learning the ropes of the rails and -living one meal to the next.

Then it got worse… Lalla has grown up sheltered from the chaos amid the ruins of civilization. But things are getting more dangerous outside. People are killing each other for husks of bread, and the police are detaining anyone without an identification card. On her sixteenth birthday, Lalla’s father decides it’s time to use their escape route–a ship he’s built that is only big enough to save five hundred people. But the utopia her father has created isn’t everything it appears. There’s more food than anyone can eat, but nothing grows; more clothes than anyone can wear, but no way to mend them; and no-one can tell her where they are going. https://www.moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=2993

Mark Andersen reads from and signs We Are the Clash @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Moon Palace Books and Extreme Noise Records present a reading with punk rock activist and historian Mark Andersen. We Are The Clash is a gripping tale of the band’s struggle to reinvent itself as the world teetered on the edge of the nuclear abyss, British miners waged a life-or-death strike, and tens of thousands died from US guns in Central America. A paradox of revolutionary conviction, musical ambition, and commercial drive, The Clash shattered just as its controversial final album, Cut the Crap, was emerging. Weaving together extensive archival research and in-depth original interviews with virtually all of the key players involved, We Are the Clash tells a moving story of idealism undone by human frailty amid a climatic turning point for our world. After the reading DJ Felix Von Havoc will spin vinyl by the Clash and other punk bands – so stick around for good music – plus pizza and beer from Geek Love Cafe. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=3206

One-Shot Comics Book Club: El Deafo @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us for a discussion of EL DEAFO, by CeCe Bell, a comic memoir about the experience of growing up with hearing loss. This fantastic middle grade kids comic won a Newbery honor award and is as funny as it is poignant.
About the book (from the publisher): “A 2015 Newbery Honor Book Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers In this funny, poignant graphic novel memoir, author/illustrator Cece Bell chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful–and very awkward–hearing aid. The Phonic Ear gives Cece the ability to hear–sometimes things she shouldn’t–but also isolates her from her classmates. She really just wants to fit in and find a true friend, someone who appreciates her as she is. After some trouble, she is finally able to harness the power of the Phonic Ear and become “El Deafo, Listener for All.” And more importantly, declare a place for herself in the world and find the friend she’s longed for.

In 2015, The Belfast Cowboys released The Upside to the Downslide, which was featured in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s annual critics poll as one of the year’s best releases.

Maeth Goes To Hell ft. Straya, Lungs, Dahlheimer @ Moon Palace Books 
3032 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 8pm • Here’s how it’s gonna go: 8:30pm Dahlheimer • 9:15pm Lungs • 10pm Straya • 10:45pm Maeth • 11:30 I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying • This show is 21+ with a $5-$10 sliding scale cover charge.
I know things have seemed bright and cheery in the Maeth camp lately but the horrible truth is that, behind the scenes, a private war has been raging. There are some in the band who believe La Croix, Florida’s most steadfast purveyor of early 90’s graphic design, to be the only serious choice for flavored sparkling water. Others prefer the quaint Midwestern charm of Mendota Springs, and when our practice space’s vending machine kept switching from one to the other as if they were somehow interchangeable beverages, it sparked animosity not yet seen since the Clear Cola War of the early 90s.
Our guitarist/flutist Sam decided the strain of mediating this cold war between factions both so near and dear to his heart had grown too great, so he upped and decided to move out east to become a rabbi. With this sacrificial gesture, he has finally brought tentative peace to our humble City Sound studio space. Unfortunately, the only way for us to retain this fragile ceasefire is for the remaining members of Maeth to go our separate ways, never to bicker about bubbly water or write dank riffs together ever again. Seriously though, Sam is leaving Minnesota this summer to begin his rabbinical studies and we couldn’t be happier for him. Maeth simply wouldn’t be the same band without him, so this feels like the right time for us to go to sleep. We have a long history with every band playing this last show of ours and we’re thrilled to spend the night surrounded by dear friends who have made the Twin Cities such a loving and inspiring home for us over all these years. To everyone still reading this – we love you. Thank you for everything

All Proceeds To The Artist Tim Sparks and Phil Heywood are two of the reasons why Minnesota is known nationwide as a hotbed for acoustic fingerstyle guitar. Both guitarists are widely recognized for their solo careers and have inspired seasoned pros and aspiring students alike with their unique talents. Both are former National Fingerpicking Champions who have gone on to release numerous recordings and compile lengthy performance resumés. About ten years ago Tim and Phil began to work up duets and perform together. They’ve built an exciting and wide-ranging repertoire drawing from American folk/blues/early jazz roots, some brilliant forays into “world” music, and a few well-chosen pop obscurities. The two have honed a dynamic concert format that showcases each guitarist’s solo selections and culminates in the full glory of two world-class fingerpickers going at it together.

Minnesota Peacebuilding Film Series @ Birchwood Cafe 
3311 E 25th St • 7pm
Join us for this month’s film, “Poverty, Inc.”. The films are free and open to the public, but space is limited – please reserve your seat! The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore. From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem? Peacebuilding films are typically the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Birchwood Cafe. Bring your appetites for positive social justice change and good real food!

Bollywood Dance (FREE) at CANDO • 7pm
OIBY, in collaboration with Bollywood Dance Scene and The Central Neighborhood, Minneapolis, is very happy to bring Bollywood Dance to the community. We offer FREE Bollywood Dance every 4th Tuesday of the month!!

So it’s a huge mash-up of those forms along with hip-hop, belly dancing, and jazz. It does not conform to any strict format. People of all age groups can dance together. It does not require partners. It is over the top ridiculous and you need that to forget all the serious and grim happenings in your life.”

Reading with Miriam McNamara @ Moon Palace Books
3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join us for a reading with Miriam McNamara, author of the new book The Unbinding of Mary Reade. A clever, romantic novel based on the true story of a girl who disguised herself as a boy to sail with the infamous pirates Anne Bonny and Calico Jack–and fell in love with Anne Bonny. There’s no place for a girl in Mary’s world. Not in the home of her mum, desperately drunk and poor. Not in the household of her wealthy granny, where no girl can be named an heir. And certainly not in the arms of Nat, her childhood love who never knew her for who she was. As a sailor aboard a Caribbean merchant ship, Mary’s livelihood–and her safety–depends on her ability to disguise her gender. At least, that’s what she thinks is true. But then pirates attack the ship, and in the midst of the gang of cutthroats, Mary spots something she never could have imagined: a girl pirate. The sight of a girl standing unafraid upon the deck, gun and sword in hand, changes everything. In a split-second decision, Mary turns her gun on her own captain, earning herself the chance to join the account and become a pirate alongside Calico Jack and Anne Bonny. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=2677
