Anita Baker

Fri., Nov. 16, 8 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

Singer songwriter Anita Baker was born in Toledo and grew up in Detroit. She began her career singing in nightclubs when she was only 16 years old. Baker found herself in a group called Chapter 8, which toured before securing their record deal. Ultimately the group was dropped when Arista bought the group's former label as they felt that the group had very little potential with Baker as the lead singer. She worked odd jobs until she was convinced to embark on a solo career. That solo career helped to shape the sound of quiet storm R&B in the '80s and includes seven platinum albums including The Songstress, Rapture and Giving You the Best That I Got. Baker has been nominated for 18 Grammy awards and has eight wins in addition to various other awards. Baker has continued to perform over the years, but as recently as January of last year had announced her retirement from recording. She's embarking on a farewell tour set to make a stop in Cleveland for two nights at the State Theatre. (Emanuel Wallace) $59.50-$199.50

An Evening With(out) David Bowie

Fri., Jan. 11

Since local music aficionado Thomas Mulready gave his first David Bowie presentation over five years ago, he's expanded the show, dubbed An Evening With(out) David Bowie, to encompass "a bewildering array of new releases while at the same time narrowing the focus on particular eras (The Berlin Era, Ziggy Stardust)." The show returns to the Bop Stop this weekend to celebrate the late Bowie's legacy. Tonight, a day after the anniversary of his death, Mulready will present an "updated and expanded" version of the program, tracing the groundbreaking artist's entire life from birth to his last album, Backstar, and beyond. There will be highly researched back stories, trivia, "needle drops," rare video, contests and giveaways. Local heroes Vanity Crash will cap off the evening with a live music set of classics and originals. Tomorrow night's program, dubbed Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell: David Bowie's Deep Cuts, will feature "a whole show together dialing in his very best material, the overlooked sweet spot where Bowie's true artistry shines." Vanity Crash will again close out the evening. Each program begins at 8 p.m.; tickets to each show are $25. (Niesel)
