Some things you might have overlooked – Friday/April 1

We scrounge through a lot of sources to populate our events calendar.   Despite the long hours of content management, events continue to pop out at me as being especially intriguing in one way or another.

Here are a couple  to check out tonight.

1. House of Mercy Recordings Presents: The First Friday Showcase at Ginkgo Coffeehouse on Snelling Avenue and Minnehaha.

Here’s the description :

The First Friday Showcase

Friday, April 1, 7 – 9 pm

Ginkgo Coffeehouse, 721 North Snelling

Chris Larson & Angie Talle: Fresh off their performance at the Fitzgerald Theater at Kevin Kling’s “Scarecrow on Fire” performance, they will be singing new and old songs from The House of Mercy Band’s repertoire.

Jon Rodine: Soulful, honest, hard-working piano man, Jon Rodine is a West Bank and Twin Cities music fixture. Expect to be lifted off this earth while listening to his beautiful voice.

Brett Larson: Brett’s songs are funny, cutting, honest and always relevant. He is coming out of a musical semi-retirement to play!

And I had to learn a little more about the House of Mercy. Have to love their message “You should come -it’s not that bad.”

2. Manya – A Living History of Marie Curie  – at The Shaughnessy, Friday night 7:30

Maybe you went to the Social Science event at the Minnesota Science Museum and it stirred up your curiosity.  Here’s the description of this event.

This one-woman drama exposes the struggles and triumphs of Madame Marie Curie (ne Maria Sk?odowska) an academically impassioned, vehemently private, fervently Polish scientist, mother,and teacher. From the political oppression of her childhood, to scientific emergence and fame to the tragedy that forced her into single motherhood as well as further world prominence, this is a life that challenges our assumptions about what one person can achieve and the responsibilities of science.Special School Performance:
