Your weekend, four ways

Does the weekend ahead look pretty tame? Here are four ways to add a little zing…

1. Are you looking for love? So is Marcus Young, and he’s hoping his latest art exhibition will help him find it. Called “I’m looking for love, so let’s fix the system“, Young’s latest show is a mix of art and life, where the boundaries between the two are completely challenged. Join him tonight at MCAD, buy some of his old apartment furniture, and help him find Mr. Right.

2. Got money on your mind? Check out the latest exhibit at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts, titled Medium of Exchange: The Art of Cash

. If you go tonight, you will also be treated to Dylan Hicks reading from his new book “Boarded Windows” and performing music from his new album, Sings Bolling Greene.

3. Zaraawar Mistry is an excellent storyteller. His latest one-man show “The Other Mr. Gandhi” runs this weekend only at the Illusion Theater in Minneapolis. It’s filled with his signature twists, simple-but-dramatic scene changes, and fabulous characters.

4. Want to put a little rhythm in your step? Tomorrow the Drum Corps International takes over the TCF Bank Stadium as part of its 40th Anniversary summer tour. 26 drum corps will be marching, including Minnesota Brass and the Madison Scouts.
