July 20 - July 26, 2005
 


Dreams of Sparrows
Bell Auditorium


Nightly news broadcasts the Iraq war from American perspectives—usually U.S. soldiers and Bush administration officials or Iraqi officials of the transitional government. “Dreams of Sparrows,” the first Iraqi-made, post-Saddam Hussein film, remedies this omission. Director Haydar Daffer is also the night clerk at the Palestine Hotel, the preferred hotel for many unembedded independent journalists, many who have been targeted by the U.S. military during the invasion. Daffer worked with an American producer in this first collaboration for the IraqEye Group, which plans future projects to reinvigorate Iraqi cinema. “Dreams of Sparrows” reveals post-war, pre-reconstruction, mid-chaos Iraq from the experience of everyday Iraqis and should not be missed. Wed. & Thu., 7:15 & 9:15 p.m. $6 - $8. U of M East Bank, 10 Church St. SE, Mpls. 612-331-7563. mnFilmArts.org. Lydia Howell


 


In the Company of Angels
In the Heart of the Beast


Claiming one’s creative power in times of State repression is universally inspiring. In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre reprises its production of “In the Company of Angels, the Charlotte Solomon Story,” celebrating the young Jewish painter who created more than 1000 lush paintings in 1940-4 before being killed by the Nazis. Collaborating with U.K.’s Horse + Bamboo Theatre, HOTB showcases masks, puppets, dance and new music to recreate how Solomon’s vivid spirit for wonder triumphs over despair. Through July 23. $15 - $20. 1500 E. Lake St., Mpls. 612-721-2535. HPBT.org. Howell

 

 


Daby Touré
Northrop Plaza


Daby Touré just might be the Prince (as in Rogers Nelson) of Mauritania, his West African home situated near Senegal and Mali. Having composed, ar-ranged and performed the bulk of his catchy debut, Diam, (which means “peace”), Touré has created an infectious collection of songs about freedom, family and world affairs. Singing and playing everything from guitar and bass to ethno-percussion like the derbouka, djembe, bongos and shakers, Touré creates layers of rich, rhythmic grooves strategically mixed and never cumbersome. Though he’s been compared to Baaba Maal or Salif Keita, to me Touré reflects the Franco-Spanish stylings of Manu Chao, especially on the opening (and best) track “Iris.” As a young man, Touré lived in Paris, clocking into its heady jazz scene and gigging in rock cover bands during college. Much to his father’s chagrin, Touré left his collegiate business studies to pursue a full time music career. Diam reflects the breadth of Touré’s musical genius, highlighting his own blend of Afro/jazz fusion. 8 p.m. Free (bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating). 84 Church St. SE, Mpls. 612-624-2345. Nancy Sartor

Ten Thousand Lakes Festival
Soo Pass Ranch


Sunburns and frisbees, hemp necklaces and Henna tatoos, guitar solos and sing-alongs. Yup, it’s time for summer festivals, but the third annual 10KLF has a little more to it than the average drum circle-inducing three-day blowout. First of all, it features great facilities and campgrounds not just for the all-night partiers, dude, but also “family-friendly” and designated “quiet” campgrounds. Plus, it has Widespread Panic two nights in a row, and in a former life, I rather enjoyed these Southerners who have a bit more tune to them than the average jam band. Also appearing will be the Black Crowes, who, whatever you think of their albums, have always delivered the goods live, and Trey Anastasio, who despite what you think of Phish, can play some guitar, let me tell you. Pack up the VW Minibus or the Vanagon, or get cozy in your Jetta and head out to Detroit Lakes for the weekend. Single Day: $40; 3-Day: $75; 3-Day w/camping: $120. Soo Pass Ranch on Hwy. 59 near Detroit Lakes. 800-493-3378. Steve McPherson

 


Musicapolis: Scene and Seen 1965-2005
Minnesota Center for Photography


Rock photography is responsible for some of our most enduring cultural images, and this exhibit at the MCP delves into our own little slice of that history. The attractively-designed invite features a photo of a positively ramshackle Hüsker Dü in what could be the Seventh Street Entry, but could just as easily be your parents’ basement. Also featured are shots of the Beatles’ performance at Metropolitan Stadium, Dylan’s sessions for Bringing It All Back Home, current acts like Snoop Dogg, and local heroes the Jayhawks and Replacements. Photos from amateurs in the right place at the right time and those of professionals looking for their next paycheck sit comfortably side by side; after all, rock photography has always been as much about fortuitous timing as it has about F-stops. One of the great things about the Twin Cities music scene is its ability to regenerate itself, whether as a funk-soul machine, an underground pop stronghold, or as a breeding ground for independent Hip-Hop, and this promises to be an educational retrospective of all those eras and more. The opening reception will feature live music by the likes of Lori Barbero, Slim Dunlap and Grant Hart, and the rocking won’t stop when the party moves to the 331 Bar in Northeast at 9 p.m. with the Cardinal Sin and others. 4 – 9 p.m. $10. All Ages. 165 13th Ave. NE, Mpls. 612-824-5500. McPherson

Puppet Fest 2005
Concordia University


Hundreds of puppeteers from around the world will gather in St. Paul Saturday for a week of performances, workshops and special events, as the Puppeteers of America hold their annual national festival. Workshops will include: making your own puppets; ventriloquism; masks; marionettes; African dance puppets; theater improvisation; finding sound effects and music for puppet shows; clowning; puppetry in political protests; the art of shadow puppetry; and theater management. 1 – 5 p.m. The E.M. Pearson Theater Arts Center, 312 Hamline Ave. N., St. Paul. 651-209-6799. Brian Kaller

 

 


Mark Mallman: 7 Years, 7 Nights
The Hexagon


Mr. Serious, tongue planted firmly in cheek, is known as much for his live performance stunts as his actual music, and perhaps more so. He eclipsed his own world record for longest rock song (set back in 1999 at 26.2 hours) last year, neatly doubling the length to 52.4 hours. It kind of makes you wonder whether he’ll be able to top that, now that we’re in the post-juiced era of professional athletics, but until he tries again, he’s got some other tricks up his sleeve. After seven years on the scene and seven releases, Mallman is celebrating with seven straight nights of free shows at the Hexagon, and the bands joining him in this mini-epic (for him) endeavor include Vicious Vicious, Dosh, Thunder In the Valley, Revolver Modele, the Beatifics, Food Team, the Gleam and others. July 24 – 30. 9 p.m. 21+. 2600 27th Ave. S., Mpls. 612-722-3454. McPherson


 


Robert Bly
Magers and Quinn Booksellers


Since he began writing for the rural, homespun “North Country Anvil” in the 1970s, Robert Bly has become one of America’s best-known poets and an icon of the misunderstood men’s movement. Bly returns to one of the city’s best bookstores, Magers and Quinn, to read from his latest work, “Turkish Pears in August: Twenty Ramages.” 7 p.m. Free. 3038 Hennepin Ave. S., Mpls. 612-822-4611. Kaller

Military Families Speak Out
Macalester College


Military Families Speak Out (MFSO) is an organization comprised of family members of those who have served or are currently serving in Iraq and who have turned against the war based on their experiences. Nancy Lessin, a founding member of MFSO and a labor educator with the United Steelworkers Union, will be speaking at Macalaster College on how the lives of the members of MFSO have been affected by having their family at the battlefront. The experiences and stories shared by MFSO can give those opposed to the occupation an idea of just what the real effects of the war are on a smaller, more personal level. 7 p.m. Olin Rice Science Bldg., Room 250. 1600 Grand Ave., St. Paul. Adrienne Urbanski

Outfoxed
Mapps Coffee and Tea


Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of media moguls? As media consolidation increases, and previously decent networks take a turn for the unabashedly conservative and alarmist, one can only assume the worst. Documentaries like “Outfoxed” probably won’t assauge anyone’s fears, but for those who pay attention to whistleblowing exposés on the media, the film offers a few more tools with which to fight the media/corporate/political (yikes, who can tell the difference anymore?) elites. “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism,” directed in 2004 by Robert Greenwald, focuses on the worst-of-the-worst networks, Fox News Channel, and skewers them with extensive interviews from both media watchdogs and former Fox employees. This film is part of the monthly series organized by the Northstar Anarchist Collective. 7:30 p.m. Free. 1808 Riverside Ave., Mpls. Michelle Lee

Maria Taylor
The 400 Bar


After playing second fiddle to Conor Oberst in Bright Eyes, and splitting the spotlight in Azure Ray, Maria Taylor has finally stepped out on her own. Carrying with her the lush delicacy of Azure Ray, Taylor proves that she is capable of creating her own beauty. Armed with whispers and intricately-written lyrics, Taylor carries off her debut album, 11:11, with quiet subtlety. Among the album’s lyrical gems is “Xanax,” a wry examination of anxiety in modern life. Taylor seems a bit unsure on her own, sometimes lost in rhythms and choruses. When Oberst takes his turn doing backing vocals on 11:11, Taylor still lets his voice eclipse hers. Taylor’s vocal passivity proves to be an asset in the electronic- laced “One for the Shareholder,” in which Taylor abandons her minimalist acoustic style for one more suited to the dance floor. While 11:11 has plenty to offer in the way of catchy, well-crafted songs, Taylor seems to be a bit too used to the background. She may be one of the few musicians out there whose ego is actually in need of a boost. Hopefully her stretch of summer touring has rendered her surer in the spotlight. The night proves to be a Saddle Creek Records showcase, as Taylor’s labelmates the Statistics, featuring Denver Dalley from the Desaparecidos, open. 8 p.m. $10. 21+. 400 Cedar Ave., Mpls. 612-332-2903. Urbanski
