Bill Holm dead at 65

Bill Holm

I saw him read a couple of times since I first learned about his writing 15 years ago. Always captivating, always fascinating. Sometimes hilarious. Other times poignant.

He’ll truly be missed.

“from Duluth to Balad” Premiere March 5th

"From Duluth to Balad" Microposter

Crispy Kale Productions (aka Michael Latsch) is premiering his new documentary “from Duluth to Balad.” The video is sponsored by Veterans for Peace, Chapter 80 and the Northland Anti-War Coalition. It goes up Thursday, March 5th at the Friends Meeting House, 1802 E. 1st St at 7:30 PM. Admission is free, and the showing will be followed by Q+A with the producer.

The documentary uses historic photos and modern combat footage to tell the story of how the wing started making deployments to Iraq in 2005. It examines the costs of that deployment, asks if Duluth can find a different way to sustain its economy.

The Blue Crab is the new Red Lobster

totalfreedom1
There’s something stirring at The Blue Crab, and it’s NOT the handful of regulars wondering what the hell that awful racket is. The band is called Total Freedom Rock (formerly The Rat Root River Band) and they want to show you what music can be, every Thursday at 10:30! Joining TFR tomorrow night is: Hydro Bliss (playing the Winter Carnival at Lakeview Castle)
If you can’t make it tomorrow, come down next Thursday for a musical experience/experiment that is sure to delight and/or freak out the most disconcerted music lover. New special guests every week! Blue Crab- 1909 W Superior St.
