We’re all in favor of it.Creative mayhem, that is. Not the destructive kind.
Artist Lila Rose Kole returns from Berlin for a series of events. We’re telling stories about Euclid Beach Park and cutting the ribbon at the rebuilt pier. They’re offering upcycled crafts and plants at Rockefeller Greenhouse. Women’s a cappella choruses and quartets from around the region compete in downtown CLE. Snag free snacks from Bike Cleveland for National Bike To Work Day this Friday.
Of course, we also have the responsibility to fix the problems we’ve caused. CPT’s tackles redlining and the subprime mortgage crisis with humor and audience involvement. Our state government has to realize that our efforts to build a growing film industry in Ohio are threatened if studios, filmmakers and creative entrepreneurs boycott our state (like they are Georgia) because of our onerous and misogynist abortion bans.
So glad to see some of our finest underground artists getting back under the moniker Geriatric Mayhem at the Grog this week. And we’re pleased to once again bring details of the growing VegFest, expected to draw 15,000 downtown this weekend. Melodic metal Olathia, The Modern Electric’s Holden Laurence, punk veterans Tufted Puffins and manic punk, garage, surf newbies King Buu are all dropping new music this weekend. Keep your eyes on the path. And have as much fun as possible. –Thomas Mulready
