Erica West
Bunker’s Music Bar & Grill
It’s hard to find strong enough superlatives for angelic powerhouse Erica West. To hear and see this R&B songbird, truly, is to believe. She opened for S.O.S. Band at Trocadero’s and, giving not an inch of ground to the legendary headliners, basically turned the show into a double bill. West gets an opportunity to headline herself this week as she fills in while The New Congress are off getting a taste of stardom at the L.A. Music Awards. Look for West to make the most of it, and for opener Chris Lawrence to turn this night into another strong double bill. Firing up with more soul than anybody in his early 20s has a right to, Lawrence is one of those out-of-nowhere talents that suddenly shows up with “can’t miss” stamped all over him. 9:30 p.m. $5. 761 Washington Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8188. DWIGHT HOBBES

More than a Trunk Show
Ordinary stationery is transformed from everyday paper into fantastic art in More than a Trunk Show, the newest art happening at Corazon, a gift store and gallery in the downtown Minneapolis warehouse district. Owner Susan Zdon, a longtime aficionado of good paper, chose printmaker Robyn Stoller as curator for this show, which features local letterpress artists and designers. Who knew that Minneapolis was such a hotbed for letterpress? Don’t let the word “stationery” hold you back—letterpress is a sensual art where letters and images are embedded into dreamy, rich textured paper. The letterpress revival is here, it’s hot and so is Corazon. Start and finish your holiday shopping here and stay clear of the malls. Through Nov. 11. Reception Thu. 5 – 9 p.m. 204 Washington Ave. N., Mpls. 612-333-1662. JEANNE BAIN

Walker Art Center
Drawing from six African countries, Walker Art has launched a series of concerts, along with dance and theater performances exploring African culture. This free preview includes talks by Walker’s performance curator Philip Bither and local African artists, sharing how they transform life’s challenges into creative celebration. This is a wonderful opportunity and should not be missed. 6 – 8 p.m. Free. 1750 Hennepin Ave. S. 612-375-7600 or walkerart.org. LYDIA HOWELL

Dirty the Bones
Intermedia Arts
People of color can tell you when they first became aware of their race and the continued impact of white supremacy, often expressed in mediums from spoken word to theater. Ellen Marie Hinchcliffe’s “Dirty the Bones” confronts a pervasive, more insidious silence. Drawing on both family and national history, Hinchcliffe poses questions about what being white means. Rejecting “white liberal guilt” while embracing commitment to justice, Hinchcliffe engages the personal, political and popular culture. Her poetry becomes ritual. “All the ‘characters’ are me at one time or another,” Hinchcliffe says of the young radical, the New Age mediator and the clueless rube. There are emotional epiphanies and plenty of humor. A sharply hilarious send-up of the film “Dances With Wolves” is worth the price of admission. Hinchcliffe’s brave theater entertains as it excavates buried truths that every white progressive must confront. Part of the annual Naked Stages series. Through Nov. 11. $12 general/$6 members & youth under 17. 2822 Lyndale Ave. S. Mpls. 612-871-4444 or www.intermediaarts.org. LYDIA HOWELL

Larry Long and Fiddlin’ Pete Watercott
Cedar Cultural Center
At long last, reunited. Thirty years ago they bounced around the country, hoppin’ freight trains, sleeping in the back of a pickup truck and hitchhiking. This is their reunion concert, and they’ll be joined by Prudence Johnson, Larry Dalton, Patty Kakac and Teresa Chandler. Sounds like a rousing good time. 8 pm. $14/$16. 415 Cedar Ave. S., Mpls. 612-338-2674. ED FELIEN

Mad Love
Mad Love comes at ya with nitty-gritty soul music straight out da kitchen, hot as a pot of grits. Headed up by area veteran and dyed-in-the-wool workhorse Nate Stevens (Wookiefoot, The Stevens Brothers, The Beads), this eight-piece ensemble may be his breakout vehicle. There are tastes of Tower of Power, The Pointer Sisters and, if that don’t put enough “unk” in the funk, you get shades of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band—all blended into an original sound that picks up where the influences leave off and rocks the house from there. Mad Love was a crowd-rousing hit at this year’s Harvest Fest throw-down. 9:30 p.m. $5. 917 Cedar Ave. Mpls. 612-338-6425. DWIGHT HOBBES

Savage Aural Hotbed
First Ave
Savage Aural Hotbed converges the ancient and a post-industrial future as it builds a hypnotic wall of percussion. From electric guitars to electric drills, this one-of-a-kind group pounds on oil drums and makes music from items you’d expect to find in an abandoned factory. Their new CD Unified Pounding Theory reaches the brain as well as the body through the force of its insistent power. This CD release performance includes the Brazilian percussion of Batucada Do Norte and includes the Japanese drumming of Mu Daiko. See Andrea Myers’ full-length article on page 18. 9 p.m. $6/$8. 701 First Ave. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388 or first-avenue.com. LYDIA HOWELL

Fall Fine Arts Show
Grain Belt Bottling House
The Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) Fall Fine Arts Show returns to the Grain Belt Bottling House this weekend. Now in its eighth year, the show originated as an exhibit by artists, for artists. “During open studio events, tons of people come through, but as artists we never get to see each other’s work,” says NEMAA president and bronze sculptor Nick Legeros. “Artists want to see and talk about each other’s work, and the Fall Fine Arts Show allows us to display some of our freshest, most thought provoking art.” All NEMAA members —artists and galleries—are allowed one submission each, and all of the art is for sale. Expect edgy work in every medium, from ceramics, sculpture and mosaics, to jewelry, textiles, painting and photography. Through Nov. 12. Reception Fri. 5 – 10 p.m.; Sat. noon – 6 p.m.; Sun. noon – 3 p.m. Free. 79 13th Ave. NE, Mpls. nemaa.org. LIBERTY FINCH

Juliet Patterson & Rachel Moritz
Opposable Thumbs Books
This is the finale of what has turned out to be an amazing run of the Imaginary Press Reading Series. Held at a cool new independent bookstore in Northeast, this series has featured high-spirited readings by regional and national literary talents. Patterson and Moritz continue this fine tradition on Friday night. Patterson’s first book, “The Truant Lover,” was selected by Jean Valentine as the 2004 winner of the Nightboat Poetry Prize. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in American Letters & Commentary, Bellingham Review, Bloom, Conduit, Hayden’s Ferry Review, New Orleans Review, The Journal and Verse. Moritz’s poetry chapbook, “The Winchester Monologues,” won the 2005 New Michigan Press Competition. Her poems have appeared in Colorado Review, Denver Quarterly, How2 and the Indiana Review. Not only are these poets widely published and critically acclaimed, hearing them read their work live promises to be an absolute delight. 7:30 p.m. Free. 2833 Johnson St. NE, Mpls. 612-760-2020. PAUL D. DICKINSON


Interlock CD Release
Interlock’s been around as a crew for as long as I can remember, but I’ll be damned if they’ve ever sounded more limber and energized than on their new compilation, Call It What You Want. Among their alumni, they can count Heiruspecs and Oddjobs (now reborn as Kill the Vultures—see the cover story), but the group of likeminded cats that currently constitutes the crew are plenty fresh on their own, and recent efforts by new label managers Chris Cloud and Mike Campbell to constitute the collective as a bona fide record label have paid dividends with this comp. Heads who know will not be surprised that the lyrical highlights here belong to Big Zach (aka New MC) of Kanser, who steps out on his own on a number of tracks, including the tailchasing “Kirsten Dunst.” In the hands of most rappers, such a booty-slaying concept might come off as misogynistic, but Big Zach’s rap ends in disappointment rather than triumph, neatly undercutting his own braggadocio. Twisted Linguistics spin a crazy tale worthy of early Blackalicious on “Old Man and the Sea,” and the whole compilation flexes and bounces with the kind of easygoing groove and all-in-the-family vibe of the Bay area comps I remember so fondly from the late ’90s/early ’00s. The release show will feature performances by Kanser, Traditional Methods, Carnage, I.L.I.C.I.T. and Twisted Linguistics. 5 p.m. $9. All Ages. 10 S. 5th St., Mpls. 612-332-3931. STEVE MCPHERSON

End Times Alley Cat Race
Bedlam Theater
Minnesota’s gone red, cameras hang from our streetlights and another West Bank institution’s been forced to close its doors. But the Apocolypse hasn’t happened yet. Grease Pit Bike Shop, the nonprofit, bike collective near Cedar and Riverside Aves. has been teaching neighborhood kids and punks alike to fix their own wheels and build whole new bikes. Volunteers give anyone who asks nicely access to the Grease Pit’s tools and its extensive collection of donated bike parts, in exchange for doing a little work around the shop. But when the venerable Bedlam Theater, in whose basement the bike shop was housed, lost its lease this year, the Grease Pit started looking for a new home. Collective members say after eight years, they feel a responsibility to continue serving their communities: kids with time on their hands, college students with limited funds and the increasing number of bicycle commuters in Minneapolis, all of whom find the skills to fix their own bicycles useful if not essential. With that in mind, they’ve organized a benefit, Alley Cat, in the bike messenger tradition of underground races. The End Times Alley Cat kicks off at the bench off Nicollet Mall between 12th and 13th Sts. 2:30 p.m. The race begins at 3 p.m. and ends at the Bedlam Theater (514 ½ Cedar Ave.), with a sliding scale donation to register. There will be prizes donated by local businesses, a bike film and bands following the race. Extra points for shitty Apocolyptic costumes, really junky bikes and large donations. Help Minneapolis keep its only nonprofit, volunteer bike shop by bringing on the End Times! For information & to register, e-mail endtimesalleycat@gmail.com. TROY PIEPER
