I know I’ve got everyone really pumped up about the new the Moon is Down EP This Machine, and you all can’t wait to come to the show at the Main Club and be one of the lucky 100 who get a free copy. I’m getting so many requests for it now, that I decided to put ‘er up on Bandcamp early so you’s all can get a listen!

Harbor City International School will present A Midsummer Night’s Dream between Thursday, April 28 and Sunday, May 1. With the exception of the Sunday performance, which is a 2 PM Matinée, all performances are at 7 PM. The theater is located on the second floor of the school at 332 W. Michigan St. Admission is eight dollars for adults and three dollars for students.
Performance Description: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a classic comedy of William Shakespeare’s. This particular performance takes place in the 30s, with settings, costumes, and music appropriate for the time period, with a certain emphasis on jazz and blues. The play intertwines three stories — that of a group of lovers turned astray from their state, divided by their uneven interests in one another; that of a group of workers who conspire to perform a play and are beriddled with conflicts as a result of their own incompetency; and that of a squabble between the King and Queen of the faeries, who in their fight play with the emotions of the lovers and enchant the lead performer of the laborers. All these events revolve around the marriage of Duke Theseus and the queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. The play is a comedy, renowned for its ridiculous humor and says a number of important things about the way we love and what is important in our relationships.
Please help us raise money for Rachel Sandell, a Duluth East High School student, undergoing expensive treatments for liver cancer. Jillian Holmen and Stacy Holden will be leading a women’s yoga circle at Yoga North (4628 Pitt Street, Duluth, MN) from 10a-12p on Saturday, April 23.
Mamas, daughters, sisters, aunties, grandmas, friends…of all experience and acquaintance welcome. We will move and sing, chant and pray — individually, as partners, and in group poses. Maybe cry, probably laugh, and definitely send lots and lots of love (and some money!) Rachel Sandell‘s way.
All proceeds will go in support of funding Rachel’s healing. Suggested donation of $50 per pair or pay what makes you happy. Cash, check & credit cards accepted.

I had a chance to take a pack of kids out to a working orchard near Wrenshall, MN (pictured above) and it was just a fantastic experience, I’d never seen anything like it before, except in books. There used to be groves like this, and “wild” groves used by people and critters for sustenance all around our region, but there aren’t many left anymore according to the experts at UMD.
Imagine an apple production and consumption culture within a thriving orchardist community, small orchards dotting the landscape, filled with heritage varieties locally adapted to our region. This was the reality of the area around Duluth, Minn., during the first half of the 20th century. But the advent of the industrial food system divested this community of its heritage, although those abandoned orchards beckon our call back to a more sustainable way of life.
Last fall, I read about a new orchard coming in near 6th Ave E in Duluth’s Hillside. Today I found out about this chance to win an orchard for the Duluth Area from Edy’s Fruit Bars. Here’s a link to sign in and vote, vote early and often.
As of today Duluth was placed 3rd in the nation: Not too shabby. Hopefully if people can stay on this we can come out on top. Almost forgot: Duluth community members and organizations will get the fruit. If this is successful expect a surge in NICE homegrown Duluth pies & cobblers in the next 5-10-15 years.
