Learn about meditation Angela Marie Patnode will give a free one-hour talk at Santosha Wellness Center on Oct. 23 entitled “Leave Stress Behind: Learn about the life changing practice of meditation.” Patnode is a transformational coach, empowerment expert and 12-year student of Buddhism. The Eastern practice of meditation began 2,700 years ago, Patnode says. It came to the U.S. in the 1960s, and is now an almost mainstream practice today. Also known as mindfulness, meditation generally allows practitioners to calm their minds, relieve stress and live from a more “centered” place. Its benefits include reduced stress, anxiety, and depression, a feeling of a sense of purpose, better sleep, a feeling of fulfillment in life, clarity, peace, and joy, as well as less reactivity to life’s unwanted situations, Patnode says. During her talk, Patnode will cover the benefits of meditation, comfort while sitting, three steps to meditation, and how to start your own practice. The event will begin at 7:30 p.m., and is free and open to the public. To register, call (406) 993-2510 or visit santoshabigsky.com.

Okkervil River flows through the Filling Station Oct. 29 BOZEMAN – Okkervil River on Tuesday, Oct. 29 makes a stop at the Filling Station in Bozeman, Mont. during its coast-to-coast tour. The Austin-based indie rock band is touring in support of their seventh album, The Silver Gymnasium, released Sept. 3. The concept album takes place in 1986 in the small town of Meriden, N.H., where front man Will Sheff grew up. Sheff likens the spirit of The Silver Gymnasium to “an action figure you
found in the woods,” he said in a press release. “New Hampshire is the woods, the ‘80s is the action figure, but neither of them is interesting to me on their own; it’s the way they go together.” That overlap between the ordinary and the otherworldly resonates throughout the eleven new songs. The band formed in 1998 and has performed with such acts as the Decembrists, The New Pornographers, The National and Lou Reed. Their sound is synth-heavy with driving rhythms,
and relies on Sheff’s edgy voice and poetic lyrics. “I’m not standing on top of the mountain, screaming that my childhood was special and everyone should pay attention to it,” Sheff said. “I am a firm believer that if you make your work very honest and personal, then it’s going to be meaningful to people who aren’t like you but have feelings like yours.” The album’s tracks reference Atari video games, VCR machines, cassette tapes and the films and television
shows of that era, underscoring how pop culture shaped – and disoriented – Sheff and his childhood friends, according to the press release. Although The Silver Gymnasium is Okkervil River’s seventh studio full-length recording, the idea for this album has been percolating in Sheff’s head for years. You can hear the result of that percolation at the Filling Station show, when they play with special guest Matthew E. White.
