Friday, February 23rd to Thursday, March 1st.

This Moment In Black History are playing a $2 bill following the Jello Biafra spoken word appearance at the Beachland tonight. The show will start at approximately 10:30. Cleveland’s favorite indie pop band, Bears play the Grog Shop tonight along with Panda and Angel, and Arma Secreta…Sunday night, Milwaukee’s The Goodnight Loving play the Beachland Tavern…Monday night in Akron, at The Line Spider, west coast garage rockers, The Ettes, hit the stage…Gil Mantera’s Party Dream play a special 21 and over show at the Grog Shop. Honestly, I don’t know what makes it a special show, but tickets are limited…Thursday marks the beginning of the Beachland’s anniversary weekend. In the big room, The Thermals headline with The Big Sleep and The Very Knees. That same night in the tavern, The Charms rock out with Boatzz and Tall Pines opening. That’s six bands, one night, two rooms, and every band carries the IRC Seal of Rock Approval. Chose wisely.

Finally, though he’s technically not a rocker, Barack Obama draws crowds like a rock star, and he will be speaking in Cleveland on Monday at 6PM at the Tri-C Eastern Campus. The event is free, but you must reserve a spot by sending an email to BuckeyesforObama at gmail dot com.
