This is more than well-deserved! Jim Stewart is a genius!
Love mgk, his music, what he stands for, his message and die hard dedication to his fans!!!
Not only is she a great actress, she's a dear human being!
SV's following a trajectory different than any other Cle neighborhood, but there's too many actors--from old guard grps to hipster startups--making too many things happen to call it anything other than a revival.
Fantastic band... I can't wait to see them again. Congratulations Seafair ! You deserve the title "Best Band in Cleveland".
wrong facebook link.
Such a great sound!
Some people may notice a slight difference between a theatre company with a shoestring budget and one with a multi-million dollar operating budget.
Not Scene magazine.
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.
