Beauty, and love, can only be found in the eye of the beholder. For the next 7 days, here’s the things we think are pretty cool.
Bowie Weekend is finally upon us, and you’ll be pretty happy if you join us on Fri 1/11 for An Evening With(out) David Bowie, on his entire life, or on Sat 1/12 for The Pretty Things Are Going To Hell,featuring his deep cuts and obscure masterpieces, both at the BOP STOP and both spotlighting Cleveland’s prettiest glam punk superstars, Vanity Crash (pictured). Dress up or dress down, but be ready to have some fun.
Who’s pretty? Akron artist Amy Mothersbaugh is mounting her final show, of her own work (finally!) as Studio 2091 in Cuyahoga Falls closes. Organist Todd Wilson presents a 2-day workshop/concert event at BW. Writer Lee Chilcote launches How To Survive In The Ruins at Loganberry. CoolCleveland contributor Kelly Ferjutz releases her new short story collection, Brief Interludes, and we’ve got a review by author Annie Hogsett.
Where’s pretty? Classical Revolution returns to Happy Dog, and Outlab lands at BOP STOP. Bites and Brews at Ohio City Galley features four start-up restaurants under one roof. The Paris Underground Sunday Jazz Series creates the sexy scene of a speakeasy in Chagrin Falls. The Cleveland Play House mounts the blood-soaked Greek war epic The Iliad with a female lead. And The Millennial Theatre Project presents Hairspray at the Akron Civic. Oh, you pretty things. –Thomas Mulready
