This is singer Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys performing at the Variety Theater; the year is correct, and thanks for the photo attribution (I did take this photo).
I wouldn't say I "fled" Cleveland so much as saw the chance to live somewhere else for a while, and that "while" has turned into fourteen years (minus Oct 2010 - June 2011, when I lived in downtown Cleveland). Don't count me out yet, as I may still return!
Cleveland has a hell of a lot going for it. In my trips home in the last few years I've been really impressed by the growth of areas like Ohio City while equally dismayed by projects like the Medical Mart and the casino.
And cheer up: you all live next to one fifth of the world's available surface fresh water. That's worth more than all the oil in the earth. Protect it.
