We unabashedly wear our hearts on our sleeves when we share our love for local talent, local festivals and local artists.
This time of year, there’s a lot of love to go around. Since 2012, LoveMuffinPalooza has teamed up with The Gathering Place, offering services for families impacted by cancer. The Berea Animal Rescue is spreading the love and breaking ground on a new facility. The Rock Hall is presenting national and local bands for free, outdoor on their plaza, including our faves, Vanity Crash.
CoolCleveland Video CorrespondentMegan Alves drops another incredible VIDEO interview, this one with the indescribable Nate Puppets. And in this week’s CoolCLE PODCAST, J talks with author Erin O’Brien on her new book Rust Belt Burlesque with photog Bob Perkoski, and she samples new local music by Canton’s The Scenic Route and singer/songwriter Kevin Conaway.
We’re dancing in the streets once again as City Stages lands on W. 29th Street. Lakewood is in Meltdown mode all along Detroit. GardenWalk Cleveland pops up in seven Cleveland neighborhoods. Mansfield shares his love for his neighborhood Hough, and for The Daily Beast, but not so much for Major League Baseball. And Guest Commentator Paul Cusato is not digging the insufferable condition of the West Shoreway. Plus, we’re gearing up for the brand-new Cleveland Photo Fest, coming in September. Some love just can’t wait. –Thomas Mulready
