While sales of CDs continue to decline, vinyl has seen a resurgence. In fact, the recent Jack White album became the fastest-selling vinyl album since Nielsen Soundscan began compiling vinyl sales figures in 1991. Jukebox owner Alex Budin has described his 1,350-square-foot music-focused bar in the Hingetown ’hood as “a place where people can expect to hear and learn about music of multiple genres, all of which is concentrated in a constantly evolving jukebox.” In keeping with that spirit and recognizing the burgeoning popularity of vinyl, the club hosts a vinyl night every Tuesday that serves as a listening party for new releases. The place has partnered with Loop in Tremont so that patrons can hear a new album on vinyl. You can bring your own vinyl and spin it too. We love the concept. It all starts at 7 p.m. (Niesel)

OPENING July 15, 6:00-8:30, Still Point Gallery in the Historic Murray Hill School House is Laurel Hecht’s solo show, “Resilient Nature”, acrylic paintings of flowers and trees. Her floral bouquets depict oversized flowers and intertwining stems on a soothing, sometimes pulsing, background. Trees that surrounding her yard and their interweaving stems, branches, and even root systems, this tangled world that often goes unnoticed, fascinates Hecht. Laurel’s paintings are brilliant, fluid, dreamy color transformed into a whole ecosystem of flowers, trees and their inhabitants. This is her first solo show since moving back to her hometown of Cleveland.
Pieter van Huystee's 2016 documentary, Hieronymous Bosch, Touched by the Devil, follows the organizers at a Holland museum as they prepare to put on an exhibit featuring 25 panels by the famous Medieval painter.

Earlier this month, the playoff-bound Cleveland Indians ran into a bit of trouble in the form of the last-place Minnesota Twins. The Twins teed off on Tribe pitchers in the first three games of a four-game series. They only lost the last game of the series. Given that it's the time of the season when every game matters, the Tribe needs to fare better against the lowly Twins this time around. The two teams conclude a three-game series tonight at 7:10 at Progressive Field. Tickets start at $13. (Niesel)
Also known as the Ragin’ Cajun, comedian John Morgan adopts a redneck persona for his standup routines. The fast-talking comedian uses plenty of jargon and slang as he talks about things like the trials and tribulations of getting older. “I ain’t one of those men who like to brag about things they ain’t doin’ no more,” he jokes, explaining why he no longer brags about his sexual prowess. While not quite as big of a redneck as, say, Jeff Foxworthy, the Ragin’ Cajun comes close. He’s also able to do a number of vocal impersonations that make for a lively standup show. He performs tonight at 7:30 at the Improv and performances continue through Saturday. Tickets are $17 to $20. (Niesel)
A summer tradition, Wade Oval Wednesday, which takes place every Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. at Wade Oval in University Circle, provides the opportunity to catch a free concert — jazz, swing, world music, and more. Between sets, check out the local food vendors, the beer and wine tent, the farmers’ market, and free kid activities — all laid out on the Wade Oval lawn that's adjacent to Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Cleveland Art Museum, and the Cleveland Natural History Museum. Tonight, the local alt-country act Brent Kirby and his Luck performs. A screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens follows the music. (Niesel) universitycircle.org.
Much like the Fat Head's tasting room in Middleburg Heights, the Hoppin' Frog Tasting Room in Akron is in a non-descript strip of storage facilities and warehouses, but step inside and you'll find a cozy tasting room where you can find a huge array of the brewery's wonderful libations. The place features "hoppy hour" every weekday from 3 to 7 p.m. Tonight, the brewers visit the tasting room from 5 to 7 p.m. While they don't fill growlers, you can drink bottles on site or take 'em to go. The place also offers a "Hoppin' Frog Rare & Vintage" list as well as a guest bottle list. And you can order from a limited food menu too. (Jeff Niesel)
The patio season is in full swing in Northeast Ohio and chefs like Ben Bebenroth over at Spice Kitchen are finding every excuse in the book to move culinary operations out of the restaurant and under the clear blue skies. He and his crew have created Pig + Whiskey Wednesdays; Bebenroth and his chef Josh Woo fire up the smoker and cook up a mess of barbecue. The items vary based on whim and weather. There’s always a seasonal whiskey cocktail or two to wash it all down. The events run from 5 to 10 p.m. and there will be live music at some dates. No reservations are required. (Douglas Trattner)
Walnut Wednesday is one of summer's great traditions.

Follow the Downtown Cleveland Alliance on Facebook for weekly updates on vendors, entertainment offerings and more. Admission is free, but the food will cost you. (Niesel) downtowncleveland.com.
