Tri-C High School Rock Off

Sat., Jan. 26, Sat., Feb. 2 and Sat., Feb. 16

When the annual High School Rock Off launched some 20 years ago at the Odeon, the promoters at the locally based Belkin Productions (now Live Nation) saw it as a way to reach out to area high schools and provide the kind of outlet that students might not have. Two decades later, the event, now held at the Rock Hall, continues to thrive. Thirty-six bands will participate in this year’s competition. A total of 147 band members, including six solo artists, will represent 64 schools Three performance rounds will take place at the Rock Hall, leading up to the Final Exam that takes place on Saturday, Feb. 16 when the 2019 Best Band in the Land will be awarded by music and entertainment industry judges. Prizes include three scholarships to study in the Creative Arts program at Cuyahoga Community College. PNC Bank will help high school seniors launch their careers in music by providing the scholarships. Tonight's competition takes place at 6, and tickets are $10. (Niesel)

Following the Crumbs

Sun., Jan. 27

An American cartoonist and musician, R. Crumb displays a nostalgia for American folk culture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in his artwork and music. He also effectively satirizes contemporary American culture. His band Robert Crumb and the Cheap Suit Serenades released three albums on the Blue Goose record label. The albums draw from pre-war acoustic blues, rags and old time classics. Crumb is truly an American original. Today, Roots of American Music (ROAM) will honor the man with Following the Crumbs, a special tribute concert that takes place at 5 p.m. at the 78th Street Studios. Crumb’s early career began at American Greetings, which was located in what is now the 78th Street Studios. The performance will feature stories and pre-war acoustic music. Singer-songwriter Tim Easton (pictured) will headline, and opening acts include locals such as the SpYder Stompers, Sugar Pie and Brent Kirby. Following the Crumbs is part of ROAM’s program called The Ohio Heritage Music Project, whose mission is to “re-imagine music production in order to document, preserve and build awareness of regional music.” As part of the event, Easton will record earlier in the day at the locally based Earnest Tube using direct-to-lacquer technology. Admission to the event is free. (Niesel)
