Wednesday, May 1st - 7:00 p.m.
Join us for a conversation hosted by PD Larson between two longtime early chroniclers of the Minneapolis scene and cultural landscape of the Twin Cites as they share their canny insider tales and an abundance of black and white photos—many never seen before—from an era still relevant today!
In the summer of 1979 writer Martin Keller and photographer Greg Helgeson, two twenty-something guys, were thrown together on a new music monthly ignobly called "Sweet Potato". Over the next several years, the two chronicled the Minneapolis scene and the cultural landscape of the Twin Cities, covering some of the most influential artists, musicians, writers, comedians, and entertainers of the past forty years. They profiled legendary musicians from across the globe and across musical genres—Paul and Linda McCartney, Bob Marley, U2, James Brown, John Lee Hooker, Devo, and more—as well as homegrown talents ranging from Dylan and Prince to the Replacements and Hüsker Dü. They covered such disparate writers as William Burroughs and Dr. Seuss, and young, up-and-coming comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Louie Anderson, and Lizz Winstead.
In Hijinx and Hearsay, Martin Keller and Greg Helgeson are at it again, offering a delectable, fun, and fresh perspective through Helgeson's photography and new stories and insights by Keller that shed fascinating light on a singular, influential era in popular culture in Minnesota.
7:00 PM Author Talk

Cage The Elephant - Social Cues - RCA
John Hill produces the Kentucky alt-rock band Cage The Elephant's fifth album, Social Cues, which features a collaboration with Beck.
Drugdealer - Raw Honey - Mexican Summer
In an era when networked access to information is nearly universal and wearing influences on your sleeve is normalized, it often feels like everything’s been done. Which begs the questions: What’s the point of creating? Does the world need another still life of fruit? Another film about love? Does the world need another melody? On Raw Honey, his second album as Drugdealer, Michael Collins colors these existential conundrums with lush arrangements, memetic melodies, and a vulnerable tunefulness that tries to make sense of self-doubt and connected loneliness in our shared simulacra.
The Rolling Stones - Honk - Interscope Records
Honk is the brand-new Best Of compilation album featuring the biggest hits and classic cuts from every Rolling Stones studio album from 1971 to 2016’s Blue & Lonesome. The 2LP collects 20 essential Stones’ tracks – including eight Top 10 singles, “Brown Sugar,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Angie,” “It’s Only Rock’n’Roll (But I Like It),” “Fool To Cry,” “Miss You,” “Emotional Rescue” and “Start Me Up.” and more. The album also features a live version of “Wild Horses” featuring Florence Welch.
Daniel Norgren - Wooh Dang - Superpuma Records
The experience of Daniel Norgren's music is marked by connection: the artist to the band, the audience to the music, and the body to the soul. His latest album, Wooh Dang, out on Superpuma Records, is Norgrens first worldwide release. Recorded live and entirely on a 16 track analogue rig the album captures the close chemistry between Norgren and his band, comprised of old friends Anders Grahn (bass), Erik Berntsson (drums), and Andreas Filipsson (guitar and banjo). An intertwining of analog instrumentation, live performance, and rural field recordings, Wooh Dang is rife with a deeply hopeful creative intention. It's red blooded, alive, and coursing with equal parts adrenaline and seratonin. Wooh Dang was a real fun album to make and to me its been the world for the last few years, says Norgren. Thanks for taking the time. I hope you enjoy it.
Tech N9ne - N9na - Strange Music
