Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound w/ The Jon Rodine Band @ The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors: 7pm :: Music 8pm :: 21+ :: $12 GA Advance :: $15 GA Day of Show • Nobool Presents: Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound + The Jon Rodine Band! Spring loaded dance floor is ready for you to boogie!

Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound brings forth a funky, lyrically charged racket that is explosive, yet intimate. Taking cues from the dance bands of western Louisiana (and his native Midwest,), the streets (and 45’s) of New Orleans, touring African and Caribbean combos and the soul, funk & blues of his youth, Paul Cebar is a masterful synthesist of rhythmic culture. His time spent in his second home of New Orleans, as a musicologist in Florida, and as a journeyman wanderer in Cuba, is reflected in his musical worldview. At the core is gifted songwriting, and the company Paul keeps bears it out: Bonnie Raitt, Nick Lowe, Chris Smither, John Hiatt and Cesar Rosas are among his friends and admirers. 

Tomorrow Sound are an elite crew. Drummer Reggie Bordeaux, New Orleans native percussionist Mac Perkins, and bassist Mike Fredrickson, throw down some of the best dance grooves in the business. Multi-instrumentalist Bob Jennings adds the luxury of implying a much larger ensemble with his multi-hued contributions on keys and reeds. Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound’s latest album, “Fine Rude Thing” is out now. The songs “Baby Shake” and “You Owe it to Me” feature Cebar’s unique mixture of R&B, Caribbean and New Orleans style.

Jon Rodine is a Minnesota-based singer/songwriter. Drawing on sources like Dan Penn, Doug Sahm, Bob Dylan and beyond, his music is song-driven, a blend of Americana, groove-oriented rock’n’roll and country soul. His most recent album “Last Star” – his first collection of original material – has been getting notice around the country. “Eleven songwriting gems” says Mondophonic.com, but “his strongest asset is his voice”. 

He’s shared the bill with artists like Ralph Stanley, Fred Eaglesmith, Tom Russell, The Pines, and Jimmy LaFave. He plays and has recorded with some the finest musicians in the Midwest – Dave Ray & Tony Glover, Erik Koskinen & Molly Maher, Paul Cebar, Benson Ramsey (Pines), Steve Kaul (Brass Kings), and Dan “Daddy Squeeze” Newton.

Minnesota Peacebuilding Film Series: He Named Me Malala @ Birchwood Café, 3311 E 25th St. • 7pm • FREE • Join us for this month’s film, “He Named Me Malala”. The films are free and open to the public, but space is limited–please reserve your seat! HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund. Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.

Cascade Crescendo, Stringdingers, & Trevor James @ The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave. • Doors 7pm :: Music 7:30pm :: 21+ :: $9 Advance :: $12 Day of Show • The Hook will host an evening of bluegrass and folk

Cascade Crescendo: From Portland, Oregon they have been crafting their own brand of bluegrass since 2013. Pulling from their vast range of collective influences, they play original, high-energy bluegrass, jamgrass, and Americana music with captivating lead vocals by Hunter White, blazing fast mandolin licks by Aden Beck, and creative, thumping bass lines by Taylor Skiles. Duluth, MN banjo player, Harrison Olk, joined the band in late 2015, bringing with him solid Scruggs-style banjo and high lonesome harmony vocals.

Stringdingers: A fresh, dynamic string band forged in the white-hot fires of the Minneapolis live music scene, Stringdingers draw inspiration from a wide array of artists and genres to craft the signature blend of bluegrass, country, and funky jam improvisation that distinguishes their sound. Each of the band’s songwriters evokes meditations on heartbreak, vengeance, fine Brazilian dining, and other key facets of the human experience through lyrics that at once recall the playfulness of John Hartford, the tenderness of Peter Rowan, and the habitual drunkenness of Hank Williams. 

Trevor James Americana Rebel: Pulling the roots of country music then mixing punk, rockabilly, bluegrass and New Americana together creating a familiar but unique sound. It holds the high lonesome sound we’ve heard from Hank and Cash but with a nitty gritty edge. Singer/songwriter Trevor James holds no shame for what he says in his songs. He tells it the way it is. Raised in Minnesota but born in Florida he holds southern charm and Midwest nice with open arms. Thanks to his mother Linnea Marrin who was the church music director, Trevor was surrounded by music at an early age. Eventually he would make his own tunes with his own lyrics. Trevor’s songs hold nothing back from life experiences. He sings from the heart be it love lost or love gained, regret and the good times. He finds the upside to remind us that the sun still shines. He takes country routes and crosses the road creating an edge to his sound which makes him an Americana Rebel.
