Goldstar is offering a limited number of discount tickets to Danger 101 by The Danger Committee for $15 + fees (Reg. $30).

The Danger Committee has brought its trademark blend of spine-tingling thrills and hilarious comedy to NBC’s America’s Got Talent and to venues around the world. At Danger 101, you’ll learn how the trio of mayhem maestros came together and brought their knife throwing, stun-gun juggling, yo-yo magic and other death-defyingly stupid routines to life. Learn how knife thrower Reynaldo teamed with a pair of jugglers despite the fact he loathed juggling. Get the inside scoop on a proposed alternate character who never materialized: Dr. Ernst Von Schmelling. Educate yourself like never before via an entire history of the yo-yo. It all adds up to an evening of definite comedy and possible tragedy with The Danger Committee.

Do your part to keep Minneapolis beautiful!

The goal of Earth Day is to provide a volunteer experience and environmental education to park users. Onsite programs offer volunteers the opportunity to learn about various issues affecting our environment and community today. This annual event involves cleaning up parks, bodies of water and the watersheds that are a part of the City of Minneapolis. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own work gloves, though we will have thin cotton gloves available for volunteers who need them.

Passing Strange opens April 25th at the Mixed Blood Theatre.  Tickets are available for purchase but you can also see this show for FREE with their Radical Hospitality program.  The show runs through May 11, 2014.

With disparate styles that range from ‘60’s Europop to ‘70’s punk to ‘80’s electronica to gospel, soul, and funk to musical theatre and with a nod to James Brown, this 2008 Tony Award winner is a play within a rock concert. The show follows an emerging African American musician from his garage-band days in Los Angeles to coffeehouses in Amsterdam, where he indulges in a rock ’n’ roll life, and from there to Berlin, where he falls in with a group of political and aesthetic radicals. It is a portrait of an artist attempting to break free of his roots, only to discover he can’t move on without a reconciliation with his past.

Passing Strange dares in a playful way to honor those big questions that have set adolescent souls yearning for centuries: how to discover and be true to your convictions, how to live a meaningful life and still pay the bills, how to find the understanding you need without throwing away the love you’re offered.
