ZZ Top and Cheap Trick Bring Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica’s Season to a Close with a Bang

Posted By on Sun, Sep 22, 2019 at 9:04 AM


Much like heavy metal icons AC/DC, Texas-based bluesmen ZZ Top happened upon a musical formula and proceeded to stick with it all the way to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Last night, ZZ Top, affectionately known as “that little ole band from Texas,” brought its 50th anniversary tour to town, closing out Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica’s season in the process.

Though the band’s 90-minute set suffered from a sound mix that often buried the vocals, the group still seemed to revel in delivering an overview of its career that came complete with a few choice covers and some snippets from the music videos that helped propel into the mainstream in the 1980s.

You can see a slideshow of photos from the concert here.

It’s hard to imagine any other Rock Hall inductee embracing the new Rock Hall Honors award with more enthusiasm than 80-year-old singer showed last night at the State Theatre during a performance and awards ceremony.

“Blessed” and “honored” were just a couple of the adjectives she used at the start of the festive two-hour event that included appearances by fellow Inductee Jackson Browne, Dawes singer Taylor Goldsmith and singer-songwriter Valerie June.

At the suggestion of her friend Tennessee Williams, Southern writer Carson McCullers adapted her novella The Member of the Wedding into a play that was an enormous success when it opened on Broadway in 1950.

It depicts the “intrinsically enmeshed lives of whites and blacks in the American South.”

Regional talent Eric Schmiedl has directed a version of the play that'll come to Beck Center for the Arts next month for a month-long run.

The Kent Barrio Location is Now Officially Open

Posted By on Fri, Sep 20, 2019 at 1:46 PM

Update: The newest Barrio location opened near Kent State University earlier this week, with a line out the door.

As the goal was to open sometime this summer, the 295 S. Water St. spot did so right in the nick of time (summer hits officially Sept. 23).

The taco company also recently announced plans to open a Strongsville location, and are still underway to bring tacos to the Michigan State University campus sometime this fall.

(Original article 4/16/2019): Kent State University students, and all other residents of Kent, Ohio, can finally stop worrying about driving all the way up to Cleveland for their late-night Barrio taco fix.

Today, the neighborhood build-your-own taco chain with the cult-like following (and queso that haunts dreams) announced plans to open a new spot on 295 S. Water St. in downtown Kent.

Barrio already has locations in various Cleveland neighborhoods, suburbs and Progressive Field as well as an outpost in New Hampshire. Late last year, they announced a new location was opening on the Michigan State University campus this fall. This new move to Kent will be the restaurant chain's ninth location.

An exact date has not been set for the Kent spot, but opening sometime this summer is the goal.

As we noted last year, it's still unclear where yet another Barrio location might open next, but after only being open since 2012, the company is on pace to take over the Midwest.
