This Magnificent Cake!

Fri., June 28

Filmmaker Barry Jenkins has said that This Magnificent Cake!, a stop-motion animation flick directed by Marc James Roels and Emma De Swaef, was the best movie he saw last year. Featuring five interconnected stories of colonial Africa — all set in the Belgian Congo during the late 19th century, the film received acclaim when it showed at major film festivals. It makes its local debut at 7 tonight at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Two animated shorts, Niki Lindroth von Bahr’s 17-minute film The Burden and Roels and de Swaef’s 14-minute Oh Willy..., will also screen. Tickets cost $10, or $7 for CMA members.

Dressy Bessy/Potty Mouth/Colleen Green

Sat., June 29, 9 p.m.

Dressy Bessy, an indie rock band out of Denver, celebrates its 20th anniversary with a tour behind its seventh studio album Fast Faster Disaster. Oddly, the album starts out slow. But it soon picks up with “Fearless,” a striking, upbeat electric tune landing somewhere between indie and pop while still holding onto rock. “Mon Chéri” highlights a smoother sound with lead vocalist Tammy Ealom’s Joan Jett-like vocals on display. The punk trio Potty Mouth opens the show. The band’s latest album SNAFU features guitar-led, driving songs. (Alexandra Sobczak) 216-383-1124


Sat., June 29, 9 p.m.

ITEM, a local indie rock band, will showcase its latest album Sad Light at what will most likely be its last show as members part ways. Listening to Sad Light means immersing yourself in dream-like synth and guitar sounds that seem like they should be listened to in the middle of the foggy woods. “Somersault” draws listeners in, blending a light sound with sad descriptive lyrics into something you can almost both see and feel. Expect to feel the energy at its farewell show. (Sobczak) 216-383-1124

Diego Figueiredo & Jeff Hamilton Duo

Sun., June 30, 12 p.m.
Nighttown 12387 Cedar Rd., Cleveland Heights Eastern Suburbs


Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo

Sun., June 30, 7:30 p.m.
MGM Northfield Park – Center Stage 10705 Northfield Rd., Northfield Eastern Suburbs

When Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, a Cleveland native, performed at Hard Rock Live a couple of years ago, we wrote that they played nearly all of their hits during a show that opened with the harmony-soaked, synth-driven “Shadows of the Night” and included numbers such as "Promises in the Dark" and "Everybody Lay Down." Our review noted that "Benatar had and still has the powerful lungs and Giraldo has no shortage of riffs — seeing the pair do their thing, it comes through that while they could have easily gotten dragged down by an overload of successful sappy ballads, they instead kept things generally in a more guitar-focused direction." Expect a similar performance when the duo returns to town tonight. (Niesel) 330-908-7793

Dumpstaphunk/Collin Miller & the Brother Nature

Wed., July 3, 8 p.m.

Ivan Neville’s funk/jam behemoth from New Orleans is not to be messed with. An absolute staple on the national scene for years now, Dumpstaphunk brings southern heat tinged with upper-register wah-wah solos. Released back in 2013, Dirty Word shows off their stage-strutting moves — horns aplenty, awash in manic percussion and wild guitar riffs. The album also features a great variety of guests — Flea, Ani DiFranco, members of the Grooveline Horns and more. “We always keep the spontaneity going, that’s something I love about this band,” Neville told Soundfuse Magazine in 2013. “We can funk it out with the best of them, but we also like to showcase how all sorts of music can come together and push the boundaries of what funk music is.” (Eric Sandy) 216-383-1124
