Social Justice Discussion- Understanding Forgiveness in Relation to Social Change
How do we start to forgive ourselves as well as others for infractions within the social system?   How does that relate to creating change?  It is a little more than "Give Peace a Chance."

Zath's Album CafeUncle Tupelo, "No Depression"

Before Wilco, before Son Volt, before, there was Uncle Tupelo.  No Depression, the album that spawned a movement, sparkles with the creative tension of standing with one booted foot firmly in the punk rock of the band's origins, and the other just as firmly in the twangy, roots-driven jangle that Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar would pursue with those two later bands after Tupelo's breakup.  Come to the Cafe Wellstone as DJ Zathras spins one of the foundational albums of Insurgent Country.

All Day, beginning at 9am
Human Rights Festival

5 pm
Discussion - The Social Justice Instigator!
Talk, is cheep, but action takes a lot of courage. What are the tricks to actually having the courage to voice a social wrong?   What does it take to sit in the front of the bus???

Russell Live at the Yak!
Wellstoner Russell Eponym (Russell Taylor Ashby) has been playing guitar and singing almost all his life. He truly believes that when it comes to music, a person never stops learning and discovering new horizons.
In addition to performing his own work, he sings a multitude of songs by well-known artists such as Dylan, Donovan, Tracy Chapman and Ralph McTell.
His versatile and accomplished guitar playing and his ability with mandolin, banjo and harmonica create a gig that you simply don't want to miss. Russell's unique sound is characterized by his meticulous fingerpicking style, his soft, lulling voice, and charming British stage presence.

Dancing Liberally - Eatin' and Drinkin'
What are the holidays for if not eating and drinking, and I have to tell ya, after eight years of watching W and the Tories loot the economy, I think we all need a stiff drink. So stop by the Cafe Wellstone for a bit of dancing, discussion, eating, and a lot of drinking. Dress up in food and beverage related gear for a chance to win lindens or just kick back and enjoy as DJs Jane and Rocky spin the ones and zeros.
