Cavs vs. New York Knicks

Thu., Feb. 23

Not even the Zen master Phil Jackson can bring stability to the crumbling New York Knicks organization. The team's president has spent the season feuding with star Carmelo Anthony, who's been the subject of trade rumors for the past few weeks. While the team got off to a decent start this season, it hasn't kept pace in the Eastern Conference, where it's near the bottom of the heap. The Cavs should get a victory tonight when the two teams face off at 8 at the Q. Tickets start at $26. (Niesel)

Debussy's La Mer

Thu., Feb. 23

Ever since he visited the Mediterranean when he was a child, composer Claude Debussy loved the ocean. He channeled La Mer, a piece that reflects the way in which the sea can be both stormy and tranquil. Tonight at 7:30 at Severance Hall, the Cleveland Orchestra plays the piece along with selections by Pintscher, Saint-Saëns and Schoenberg. An hour before the performance, speaker Rose Breckenridge, administrator and lecturer for the Cleveland Orchestra Music Study Groups, gives the pre-concert talk, “Exotic Views.” Performances repeat at 11 a.m. tomorrow (minus the Schoenberg) and at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets start at $29. (Niesel)

Guy Torry

Thu., Feb. 23

Comedian Guy Torry likes to joke that he used to get kicked out of class for telling the kind of jokes that he now tells on TV. His material ranges from talking about the "stand in line rage" he experiences when he goes to the bank to the generational differences he sees in the world of sports ("you don't see any black players in baseball anymore — too many games"). All the while, he delivers his narrative-based jokes with frenetic energy. He performs tonight at 7:30 at the Improv, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets are $17 to $20. (Niesel)

Gender, Race, and Social Mobility in the Production World

Ma-LESS\Dani Deahl\BEARCAT\Sarah Snider Due stereotypes society still clings to, women, let alone women of color, are rarely allowed to associate with any of the tropes attributed to the rap and production worlds. This imbalance falsely relates the quintessential qualities of rap and production ability with masculinity rather than skill, making it disproportionately hard for femmes in this area of the music world to get noticed. This panel, featuring 4 femme artists from both inside and outside our community, will explore how these stereotypes exist in our musical practices and how femme artists today are working to rise above and beyond.
