It is a real shame that although Cleveland is home to the Rock Hall, there is a decidedly, and noticeable void of quality summer rock festivals that rival ones being played out in many other major cities across the country.. Sure we get Vans Warped, but where is Cleveland's version of shows that can rival the likes of: Coachella, SXSW, NXNE, Riot Fest?
Blossom once had Lollapalooza, but that was so long ago. Today There is no end to the list of cool bands reuniting, bands who love to play these all-day festivals, but not many are being grouped together into one notable festival right here in NE Ohio.
This is certainly not a slam on the few good venues here who do book consistently good national acts - ie., The Beachland Ballroom, The Grog Shop, House of Blues, Now That's Class. To supplement their tireless efforts we need a regular summer festival like the ones mentioned above that can find a way to get classic bands together, festival style, here, like: The Replacements, X, Guided by Voices, Iggy and the Stooges, Violent Femmes, Toots and the Maytals, Blondie, Public Enemy, The Selecter, The Pixies, Blink 182, Joan Jett, Bob Mould, The Specials and many more.
I find it hard to believe I am the only one who ses this disparity.
The show at the Opera House in San Francisco, was the Best show I been in years. Ian is an Outstanding musician and performer. Jethro Tull band play this surreal theatrical musical with grace an full energy. Bravisimo!
I've had the honor to see and hear Hammer play. He's a beast!!

I wasnt an "80s music" lover until I discovered this band. Def throw a hell of a party at their shows. And for someone wanting to get away from the mainstream music bogging down the radio stations in Cleveland, def buy this CD! Great guys, great energy, great music, GREAT BAND!! Remember, not everyone likes the Rolling Stones either :)
