This week's top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who's paid to pick them:
Monday: Forced Alter Ego
Malajube: Rockin' it in French
-- the second part of photographer Julius M. Lyles' ongoing Internal Baggage Project -- just opened, and it's pretty cool. Lyles asked a bunch of black men about identity, then he took their pictures. The results are an incisive look at businessmen, students, and activists in Cleveland.
Plan to get hammered tonight? Then the Apex club has a pretty sweet deal. Every Tuesday and Thursday it offers free limo rides
to and from the bar. So you can get plastered in style. The only catch: You have to stay there a couple hours and drink. We see no problem with that.
If our college had a Beer School like the Great Lakes Brewing Company [http://www.clevescene.com/search/events.php?eventSearch=1&date=2007-02-21&event_occurance=both], we would've graduated a lot sooner. Or maybe we'd still be there. Hard to tell.
come from Canada, and they make a lotta noise. They also sing in French. Just because we can't understand a word on their new CD, Trompe-l'oeil
, doesn't mean we don't get it. They play the Grog Shop tonight.
The Western Reserve Historical Society brings Diana: A Celebration
to town today. Filled with the gay icon/dead princess' wedding dress, tiara, and childhood mementos, the exhibit gives Clevelanders a peek into the life of the only royalty Americans ever cared about. --Michael Gallucci
