I am looking for a phone number for this group. I went to the website but it is under construction.
IT'S NOW CLOSED :(
Means a lot when a promoter actually goes to shows that their not promoting or have no involvement with, James and Cleveland Music City absolutely deserve this award, Congrats!!
House of Blues is a beautiful venue, i think maybe the Grog Shop would have benefited from this more though?
John is right. The art gallery category is pathetic. Even if the "public" decided that these places and events are galleries, I would hope that a magazine like Scene would choose to represent "Cleveland's Best" by elevating the general public's idea of a gallery.
What might be nice is an actual review of commercial galleries, non profit galleries, frame shop galleries, and art centers to help people, including artists, distinguish between them.
So glad you gave this award to someone who made ONE song three years ago. A minute long song, too. It's just proof that your best of cleveland issue is just a way to get extra ad money. These people only win because their friends (or in this case, Alan Cox and his audience) stuff the ballots. There are lots of great artists here who have made full albums who deserve this attention.
Way to give yourself a Staff Pick award. That's hilarious. It really shows how absurd and completely irrelevant your "awards" are.
The House of Blues is one of the worst venues in town.
Actually, Daniel, hipstersir is very right. 78th Street is not an art gallery. Even by a dictionary definition, 78th Street is not a gallery. I go to 78th Street nearly every Third Friday. Actually, none of the four nominees are truly a gallery. This category was totally misrepresented. HEDGE is a gallery. Lesko, Sheele, Tregoning, Survival Kit - all galleries at 78th Street. There are dozens of true galleries around town - Bonfoey, Verne, Busta, Shaheen, Gallery 160, Contessa, Convivium, the list goes on (and yes even the one I own). 78th Street is a collective of galleries, studios and businesses and it is a true gem in Cleveland. Not actually having galleries represented in this category is an insult to the dozens of great art galleries in Cleveland and a complete misrepresentation of what our art scene is all about.
hipstersir, you are completely WRONG. You need to go again. Look up gallery in a dictionary. Hedge, Lesco, Sheely and several others are REAL galleries amid a mix of various artists operating out of studios.
Does Applebee's serve top quality food like the House of Blues provides top quality entertainment in a top quality facility with top quality service and top quality security? Getting tired of you "hipsters" with your preconceived notions of what's cool and what's not. Obscure, unknown and off the beaten path does not equal the best experience.
nothing like chasing the lowest common denominator to show the world just how far cleveland has come.
Congratulations Dominic, well deserved!
Congratulations, you are awesome! You make us very proud.
"MIMO" DOESNT EVEN PLAY HOUSE!!! OMG look at this mimo circle jerk in this thread. This is an embarrassment to Scene, Cleveland, and everyone on the PLANET who actually has respect for electronic music of any genre. Frankie Knuckles is rollin in his grave right now.
Too bad 78th street - even though it is the best art event and venue in town - isnt an art gallery. Busta, Verne, Bonfoey - those are galleries. Get it right. Nothing in this category (and a place run by a Scene staffer doesn't count) are galleries.
How does this event even count as an art event? There are barely any galleries on the walk. TAW has become nothing more than a restrant and bar crawl with a few shops in between along with the like three galleries worth checking out. Calling this the best art event is lame and ridiculous.
Congratulations, Josh! You are such a joy to work with, I couldn't be happier!
wow. way to go cleveland. so proud of yr classy ways.
