Ten years ago, local soul singer Lauren Lanzaretta visited a small orphanage behind a pig farm in the village of Krasang, Thailand. While there, she learned about how Thai children have been sold into the sex trade. She channels that experience into her new single, the piano ballad “Something Won’t Let Me Down,” which she just released today.

The song is the first single from her upcoming album, Deliverance.

City Club Accepting Submissions for Outdoor Mural

Posted By on Wed, Mar 22, 2017 at 2:05 PM

  • The City Club of Cleveland
The City Club of Cleveland is calling all Ohio artists or groups of artists to submit proposals for an outdoor mural to be featured on the west-facing wall of the City Club Building downtown (850 Euclid Ave).

All Ohio artists aged 18 or older are eligible to apply. Submissions for the mural, which will be digitally reproduced on the wall, are due by April 21.

The purpose of the mural, according to the City Club, will be to "celebrate the principle of free speech and serve as a wayfinding device to the City Club’s second-floor location." It should draw inspiration from the 1942 mural by Elmer Brown, “Freedom of Speech,” that's currently on display in the City Club Forum.
  • The City Club of Cleveland
The City Club is partnering with LAND Studio on the project. Finalists will be selected in May and will be paid a stipend to produce a conceptual design of their mural. The winning artwork will be selected in July — with an additional artist's fee going to the winner — and "design, development and fabrication" will take place through September. The goal is to install the mural in October.

Check here for submission guidelines and requirements.

Great Lakes Brewing Company to Introduce Cans for the First Time Ever This Summer

Posted By on Wed, Mar 22, 2017 at 11:49 AM

  • @GLBC_Cleveland
Great Lakes Brewing Company, Ohio's oldest and largest microbrewery, will introduce cans this summer for the first time ever. Select beers will be offered in 12-packs of 12 and 16 ounces beginning in May.

With new designs by illustrator Darren Booth, the cans will be packaged at the Harpoon Brewery facility in Boston. (Great Lakes entered into an "interim partnership" with Harpoon for this venture.)

The newly year-round Turntable Pils (12 oz.), the seasonal Lightkeeper Blonde Ale (12 0z.) and the former pub exclusive Rally Drum Red Ale (16 oz.) will be the first out. A 16-oz. version of the Turntable Pils will then hit stores in August.

In a press release, brewmaster Mark Hunger said, “What’s most important to me is making sure the quality and taste of any beer we put our name on is what our customers expect. We are very confident in Harpoon’s process and quality standards and I’m looking forward to working closely with them, especially with these three excellent beers.”

The three styles were selected because they "fit perfectly" with "can-friendly" venues and activities. They'll now compete at bars and grocery stores with the local Platform Brewery, Sibling Revelry Brewery and the increasingly popular Rhinegeist Brewery, from Cincinnati, all of which are already available in cans.

The Cubs-Indians World Series is Going to Be a Movie

Posted By on Wed, Mar 22, 2017 at 11:43 AM

While there's really no reason to revisit the thing in graphic detail, Variety reports today that Radar Pictures will nonetheless produce a movie about the Cubs-Indians World Series. To be clear, this will pretty much be a movie about the Cubs.

The movie will work off of former Cubs catcher David Ross's upcoming memoir Teammate: My Journey in Baseball and a World Series for the Ages, according to the report. The narrative anchor of the memoir is last October's riveting and rainy Game 7.

Radar Pictures has not yet announced who will play Rajai Davis.

LeBron James Taped a Carpool Karaoke Segment With James Corden

Posted By on Wed, Mar 22, 2017 at 10:34 AM


LeBron James was spotted in L.A. Monday with James Corden and Ice Cube dancing and fighting ninjas, just the sort of stuff you'd expect the trio to get into together.

King James, it's now evident, filmed a segment for an upcoming episode of
The Late Late Show. The MVP seems like a natural fit for Corden's popular Carpool Karaoke segment ... but we're not sure where Ice Cube fits in. James gave a few  hints to the Akron Beacon Journal though, saying that the sketch with Corden is “Going to be phenomenal ... It’s not just us in the car singing songs. I can’t tell you exactly what we’re doing, but we’ve got a whole production going on."

There's no air date yet for James' Carpool Karaoke episode, but we'll keep you updated.

Posted By on Wed, Mar 22, 2017 at 8:30 AM

The locally owned and operated Capitol Theatre, in the Gordon Square Arts District, regularly presents special screenings of cult classics and oddball flicks that don’t receive wide distribution.

Tonight at 6, the venue presents its Happy Hour Classic Film, a monthly screening of a classic film that includes a happy hour cocktail party in the lobby before the feature.

Tonight’s featured film is Hello, Dolly!, the 1969 movie starring Barbra Streisand, based on the musical by the same name.

Admission is $10, which includes a mini-cocktail (or soft drink if you don’t fancy the hard stuff), appetizers and live music.
