Join students from five colleges in solidarity with UMD students at Monday march/rally

Racism in Minnesota?  Really?  In the wake of a Facebook scandal that has rocked the UMD community, students and community members will join together on Monday, May 3, as a united community standing together against all forms of racism.   UMD students will make a 4-mile march beginning at 10 a.m. at the Washington Center and ending at Kirby Plaza, UMD.

Local Talent Supporting Local Community

Sunday, May 2, University of Minnesota Duluth students and faculty will be giving from the arts. Starting at 7 PM, live vocal and instrumental performances will be filling the beautiful Sacred Heart Music Center to benefit the many important programs of CHUM (Churches United in Ministry) and Sacred Heart. Accompanying the jazz and classical stylings of some of UMD’s most talented musicians will be a silent auction of original art pieces as well as a dessert and beverage bar bringing together some of the most delicious gifts the Duluth community has to offer.

Showing your support is as simple as showing up, but any monetary donations will also be greatly appreciated. So at 7 PM, May 2, bring all your friends and family to 201 W. Fourth St. and feel free to dance!

A Winter Downpour - Homegrown 2010

The Birds, by Aristophanes by way of Van Halen

The 1980s is the updated feathers-and-glitter setting for Aristophanes’ political satire, spoken and sung by Emily Parr’s Harbor City School theater students. It’s Thurs-Sunday, April 29-May 2, 7 pm through Saturday, and 2 pm on Sunday. Don’t miss it–it’s at 322 Michigan St. in the Harbor City School Theater. The entrance is in the skywalk.

Right on, St. Paul!

Well, it’s sort of regional… might be a good idea for Duluth:

Teague Alexy is just trying to get a good clean high off a dirt cheap bottle of wine

In addition the Homegrown gig next Tuesday, May 3, at Carmody Irish Pub, you can also catch Teague Alexy …

Friday, 4/30, performing on Almanac North on WDSE-TV

Everybody Outside! at Morgan Park on Saturday, May 1

If you’re looking for a pre- or post-Leif Erickson destination, or you’re looking for an alternate event for the day, bring the kids to the west side this Saturday between noon and 5 p.m. for Everybody Outside at Morgan Park

A class group from UMD is putting this event on to offer outdoor recreation opportunities to kids from the whole Twin Ports area but kids in West Duluth specifically. We’ll have camping skills activities, birding by Lake Superior Zoo, disc golf, fishing skills with MinnAqua, skateboarding demos by Damage Boardshop, and slacklining and a bouldering wall to get kids active and outdoors. All activities are free and we’ll be having raffles and food concessions (with proceeds going to the Morgan Park Playground Fund). See you Saturday!
