  • 1. Pleasure & Paint: Eric Inkala's Dreamworld Comes To Life | The Rake ... Daily Secrets of the City, Fiction, News, Events and Restaurants in Minneapolis - St. Paul, Minnesota Pleasure & Paint: Eric Inkala's Dreamworld Comes To Life Submitted by Kate Iverson on Friday, August 8, 2008 ART Overflow: A Pleasure Trip Eric Inkala's no fool. After a good run of years of painting his coloristic, hazy-dazy, arabesque, Little-Engine-that-Could-meets-Pacman murals (this guy is a tagger of the most whimsical sort) on walls around town, Inkala's finally been hit by the legitimacy bug. That is, in the manner of graffiti artists gone legit--like Keith Haring in the 1980s and, more recently, Barry McGee, whose work was a highlight of the recent Carnegie International--Inkala's bringing his particular brand of graffiti stylings indoors to show at The Gallery @ Fox Tax. (Note: Fox Tax is a tax and financial services company that also has an art gallery.) Called "Overflow: A Pleasure Trip" and curated by Emma Berg of, this is being billed as Inkala's first local solo gallery exhibition. How exactly he manages the transition (from outdoors to in-; from renegade to law-abider) remains to be seen, but press materials promise there will be "smoothly cut whales hanging from the ceiling," "bulbous characters" flowing in and out of the background, "walking creations of his recurring character," and the sum of these parts will form an "abstract diary that represents everything from the day-to-day mundane to his travel experiences..." -Michael Fallon Friday, 6pm-11pm, The Gallery at Fox Tax, 503 1st Avenue NE, Northeast Minneapolis, Free, Runs through Sept. 6th Continued advertisement 1 of 3 8/8/2008 3:04 PM

PERFORMANCE Le Cirque Rouge 5 Year Anniversary I am not usually a Burlesque fan, I suppose I'd call myself somewhat indifferent when it comes to it. Not for any particular reason, mind you, it's just something that I am relatively "whatevs" to. However, when you factor in the ambiance of the totally Parisian alley behind Nick & Eddie, and maybe a pre-show Spicy Steak (to die for) in the restaurant, Burlesque suddenly sounds fantastically, decadently amazing. A likely event for lovers, swarthy art-winos and mysterious, red lipstick wearing babes and gun molls on a warm, starry night of the most seductive variety - with be-tasseled pasties of course! Le Cirque Rouge has been performing their tawdry, funny and super sexy burlesque show all over the Twin Cities and beyond for five whole years, so come on down to Loring Park to see what all the fuss is about. Tonight is what dreams, memories, (and possibly nipple slips) are made of! Friday, 10pm, Loring Alley behind Nick & Eddie, 1612 Harmon, Minneapolis, $6 FESTIVALS Twin Cities Pan African Fest Wear your dancing shoes to this vibrant festival spotlighting African music in the Twin Cities presented the Non-Profit musician support organization D.E.M.O., (The Diverse Emerging Music Organization) and co-sponsored by The Rake! Friday night will feature the "Hottest Afro-Caribbean Party of the Summer" at La Bodega Tapas Bar with festive live African and Caribbean music starting at 10pm. Saturday's main event on the Nomad World Pub's outdoor stage will feature Ghanaian rapper M.Anifest and KUT Dance with an indoor after party to follow with a variety of reggae and hip-hop acts including local darling Maria Isa. Sunday is a bit more chill with an evening film festival that will include three music documentaries on the African hip hop scene, Fela Kuti, and Bob Marley.

This will be their fourth year participating in the Fringe, and the group is affiliated with three shows that will be playing around town through August 10th. The Spaceman Chronicles is something they've been carrying in their pockets since 2006; they developed Mortem Capiendum earlier this year, and have been touring it at various festivals throughout North America; and Shift was written in the two months leading up to this summer's Minnesota Fringe. The assortment of plays represents a solid cross-section of what the troupe has been producing since joining together, showcasing the talent that has prompted critics to say they "offer up such wit and hilarity that audience members will be doubled over in their seats" (Star Tribune). The Rake had a chat with three of the four artistic directors - Nick Ryan, Jason Ballweber, and Brant Miller - to talk a bit about their recent work.
