To Shining Sea

If you weren’t there for Bedlam Theatre’s “Hot Summer of One Acts 2002,” here’s a chance to atone and at least catch the outrageous gem “To Shining Sea: The American History Pageant.” If you were there, you know it’s worth seeing again. But it’s only gonna be around for one week, so don’t fiddle around. Just when, one might ask, did that noble bastion of brotherhood and liberty, the good old U-S-of-A, become a global empire led by Bush the Hun for the sake of occupying every place there’s a barrel of oil to be bootlegged? Here’s a hint: it didn’t start with defending “democracy” from imaginary weapons of destruction. “To Shining Sea” charts 500 years of ruthless, greed-fueled xenophobia — from Columbus’ gold tax on Hispaniola to Haliburton’s oil contracts in Iraq — and traces the course of documented American imperialism throughout history. A Bedlam Studio collaboration of state-of-the-art avant-garde theater, spearheaded and directed by main madman John Francis Bueche, this is one you don't want to miss. Wed. Aug.11 - Thu. Aug.12, 8 p.m. (donation); Fri. Aug 13 - Sat. Aug 14, 9 p.m. $10. 514 1/2 Cedar Ave. S., 612-341-1038. DWIGHT HOBBES

Ambulance LTD
@ The 400 Bar

I’ll admit to being incredibly wary of New York City based bands these days. Living in a post-Albert and Julian musical universe means having to endure a lot of heavily hyped and woefully inadequate poseurs from the Big Apple. I had my reasons to doubt Ambulance LTD (mostly because of their website url — AmbulanceNYC.com — just in case I forgot where they were representin’!) but so far have to admit that the tunes on their self-titled debut are worth the accolades they’ve been garnering. Equal parts shoegazer devotees and pop classicists, Ambulance LTD think nothing of zoning out on a spiraling electric guitar pattern and meandering sound atmospherics intro for two minutes before finally kicking into the verse of arguably the poppiest song on their record (the sweet jangly melancholia of “Stay Where You Are.”) Nice… With TBA. 9 p.m. $10. 21+. 400 Cedar Ave. S., Mpls. 612-332-2903. Rob van Alstyne

The Angel and the Tower

For a high-flying night of gravity defying performance, don’t miss “The Angel and the Tower” at this year’s Fringe Festival. Choreographer and dancer Risa Cohen teams up with St. Paul’s own circus training center, Circus Juventas, for an aerial-dance fairy tale about an imprisoned soul searching for the love of an angel. The show will feature Circus Juventas’ new head instructor, circus acrobat Sun Yanhong, who recently toured with Cirque du Soleil's “Dralion,” and veteran mover Denise Armstead, formerly of Zenon Dance Company. With its magical blend of innovative choreography and graceful aerial dance, you’ll experience first-hand why Risa Cohen has repeatedly been ranked as a top-ten Fringe performer. Fri Aug. 13, 2:30 p.m.; Sat. Aug. 14, 2:30 & 8:30 p.m.; Sun. Aug. 16, 2:30 & 8:30 p.m. $12. 2540 Nicollet Ave. S., Mpls. 612-604-4466. STANLEY BERG

Banned On These Premises

Hardly a day goes by without turning on the TV and hearing about a shooting. Gun violence is everywhere: in the news, in the movies, in Bush’s war on terrorism, sometimes in your own neighborhood. “Banned On These Premises” is a performance and visual art exhibition, which portrays artists’ feelings, thoughts and ideas relating to the effects of gun violence. The show features local and national visual and performing artists. A series of performance pieces about subjects related to guns, including prose, poetry, spoken word and music will be showcased on opening night. 7 p.m. Free. Exhibition runs Aug. 13-27. College Center, 2nd Floor, 2501 Stevens Ave. S., Mpls. 612-874-3785. BERG

Little Man
@ Lee's Liquor Lounge

Judging from the press photos, Chris Perricelli is indeed a none-too-large fellow, but as his cheekily named group Little Man prove backwards and forwards on their debut record, Big Rock, he’s a mighty mite of a man when it comes to bringing the noise. A former Chicagoan and close buddy of Ike Reilly, Perricelli made his way to the Twin Cities a few years ago and apparently made the right friends pretty quickly, as his debut with Little Man features contributions from some of the local rock pantheon's elite, including bassist Heath Henjum (Beatifics, the Olympic Hopefuls) and co-production from Ol’ Yeller mainstay Rich Mattson. This is the kind of ballsy traditionalist bar-rock that's guaranteed to put a shit-eating grin on the faces of those music fans searching for short and sweet rock to accompany tipping back your brew of choice and forgetting about the work-a-day week. With Pete Hofmann and headlining act Ol’ Yeller. 9 p.m. $5. 21+. 101 Glenwood, Mpls. 612-338-9491. van Alstyne

@ First Avenue

This final show brings the 12Rods’ glorious (and appropriately 12-year) career of frazzled and frenetic new-wave pop to a close. Head Rod man Ryan Olcott has been using a new lineup around town the last few months to play a series of shows in which a different Rods album was played in its entirety (I’m still kicking myself for missing the Split Personalities gig) and since this is the grand finale it's hard to say what to expect (perhaps every Rods song in order of its creation performed one after another — sounds like a good way to spend six hours in my opinion!). Who knows where the wind will blow Olcott next, but at the very least any local music die-hards would do well to make it down to First Ave. and pay their final respects to one of the leading lights of rock in the Minneapolis scene during the last decade. With Amateur Love. 6 p.m. $7 adv/$10 door. 21+. 701 First Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388. van Alstyne

Heartbreak & Harmony
@ The 7th St. Entry

Another in the excellent series of shows curated by bearded local music man about town Dave Campbell (of Electric Fetus and KQRS Homegrown fame), this edition of Heartbreak and Harmony could be one of the best yet. Featuring three widely varying and top flight local acts (warm and fuzzy light folk act Romantica, progressive Italian influenced instrumentalists Spaghetti Western and pristine poppers Basement Apartment), this installment of H&H also boasts a great non-local talent in Portland OR's Owen Ashworth (who performs under the accurate and informative moniker Casiotone for the Painfully Alone). Picture the Mt. Goats with cheap Casio keyboards substituted for cheap acoustic guitars and you're starting to get a good grip on Ashworth's aesthetic. Far from a cheap gimmick, however, Ashworth's clever word-play and ear for simple melodies manage to imbue his rinky-dink sound with surprising emotional gravity. 9 p.m. $6. 21+. 701 First Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388. van Alstyne

Pizza Lucé Block Party
@ The uptown Pizza Lucé

Pizza has never sounded so good. Heiruspecs, All the Pretty Horses, The Soviettes, Mel Gibson and the Pants, Kwang, Motion City Soundtrack, Shotgun Monday, Cardinal Sin, Countach, Trampled by Turtles, Rass Kwame and Ananse, and Tony Paul are all having a really big picnic and you’re invited. Just remember to eat a lot of pizza in order to appropriately broaden your musical palette, and dress accordingly.

Starting the block party off right with world music, Tony Paul’s world beat music leads nicely into Rass Kwame and Ananse’s West African style reggae, who, in turn, set the stage for this ten-hour local music mini-marathon. Trampled by Turtles follows with guitar versus banjo finger-picking blue-grass, followed by a hard-rocking set from Shotgun Monday, of Kalvin Crime fame, the Cardinal Sin, the next local rock band to make it, and Countach. Then comes the clever, synth-accented power-pop of Motion City Soundtrack who precedes Kwang, whose straight-forward crotch-rock with a “keep it simple stupid” attitude (KISS) will remind us how fun rock ’n’ roll used to be. Classic Midwestern Hip-Hop group Mel Gibson and the Pants then precede the punk-rock poster kids the Soviettes. And Finally, the Ziggy Stardust, Velvet Underground hybrid goth-glam outfit, All the Pretty Horses round out the show with the headlining, smooth-talking, beat-happening Heiruspecs. 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Rain or shine it's going down. Free. All Ages. 3200 Lyndale Ave. S., Mpls. Ian Anderson


Dresden Dolls
@ The 7th St. Entry

Boston's Dresden Dolls are true musical hybrid, sexy punks with a brash delivery who also possess a certain flare for the operatic (hence their self-description as "Brechtian punk rock cabaret"). This strange combination has given the Dresden Dolls widespread critical appeal and their self-titled debut from last year was on more than a few best of 2003 lists. Vocalist Amanda Palmer is a true dynamo, a singer whose vocals shift from a calm coo to schizophrenic fury in the span of a single breath. It's a great ride and one you'll want to get on now as the Dresden Dolls appear poised to blow up big time. With Melodious Owl.
5 p.m. $8. All Ages. 701 First Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388. Lenzmeier


Danger Boy & The Road Vultures
@ Bedlam Theater

Everybody’s favorite local brat-rockers Danger Boy & the Road Vultures are back at it again, about to hit the world up with a new three song seven inch and taking the country by storm in their beat-up van to bring the goods to the people. This gig at the Bedlam is the kickoff show for the band’s latest tour, so be sure to shower them with plenty of appropriate gifts (lunch money, soap, pillows) to help them endure life on the road. The DB & RV’s (how’s that for impromptu acronyming?) sound continues to mature while staying refreshingly raw and amateurish, so for anyone who likes sweaty aggressive rock goodness delivered with a heaping helping of youthful exuberance then you know where your ass should be shaking come Monday night. With Passions, Thieves, and 24 Reasons Why. 8 p.m. $5. All Ages. 514 ½ Cedar Ave., Mpls. 612-341-1038. Dean

Black Arts Ball
Milwaukee Depot Marriott

Alchemy Theater has been one of best kept secrets in the Twin Cities for a number of years now, doing readings of black scripts with area luminary Dawn Renee Jones at the helm as founder/artistic director. The cat, however, is about to be let out of the bag with plans for a soon-to-be-announced, full-blown production (particulars, for the time being, remain under Jones’ hat). Meanwhile, the intrepid entity presents the 2004 Black Arts Ball, a swanky affair (yes, black ties, gowns, the whole works) to honor esteemed contributors to artists who’ve made their mark in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Titled “From These Roots,” the evening acknowledges vastly accomplished figures Seitu Jones (multi-disciplinary visual artist), Gene Adams (trumpeter), Mary Moore Easter (choreographer, dancer, writer), Jevetta Steele (singer) and June Wilson (choreographer). It’s kind of pricey at $60 a shot, but look at it this way: you get to rub elbows with glamorous folk and you’ll see a lineup of top shelf veterans being given their props. Plus the keynote speaker is Twin Cities-spawned stage, television and movie star Ernie Hudson. $60. 225 3rd Ave. S., Mpls. 763-522-6293. DWIGHT HOBBES
