The Clarks/Erica Blinn & the Handsome Machine/Jillette Johnson 

When: Fri., Oct. 11, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $15
For nearly 25 years, The Clarks have sustained a career as a better-than-average alt-rock act that’s innocuous enough for a first date. At their peak a few years back, the group could pack mid-sized venues throughout the region (and they regularly played here in town to capacity crowds at the now-shuttered Odeon). Their popularity has declined some, but the guys are still at it, as well they should be. Singer-guitarist Scott Blasey has a raspy voice that’s equally suited to country and rock, and the band often successfully mixes the two genres together. Columbus-based Eric Blinn and her backing band the Handsome Machine have started playing Cleveland more regularly and that's a good thing. The band has sharp alt-country sensibilities and has been building up the amount of original material in its repertoire. (Niesel)
