Classical Revolution Cleveland

Third Tuesday of every month

For many years, classical music wasn't intended for the masses. Seemingly reserved for quasi-exclusive concert halls, classical music hid from the outside world. Classical Revolution Cleveland helps tear down that wall and once again bring great chamber music to the people. Showcasing a variety of performers in bars, cafes and the like, it's actually not that different from how people used to listen to chamber music. The third Tuesday of every month, CRC brings its wide array of chamber music to the Happy Dog at the Euclid Tavern. Performers like the Trepanning Trio, Anime Duo, students of Cleveland Institute of Music and even Cleveland Orchestra members grace the stage in these exciting concerts. Full of immensely talented performers, CRC re-instills the relevancy of this vibrant art form. Tonight's free, all-ages performance starts at 8. (Patrick Stoops)

Vinyl Night

Tuesdays, 7 p.m.

Jukebox owner Alex Budin has described his 1,350-square-foot music-focused bar in the Hingetown 'hood as "a place where people can expect to hear and learn about music of multiple genres, all of which is concentrated in a constantly evolving jukebox." In keeping with that spirit and recognizing the burgeoning popularity of vinyl, the club hosts a vinyl night every Tuesday that serves as a listening party for new releases. The place has partnered with Loop in Tremont so that patrons can hear a new album on vinyl. You can bring your own vinyl and spin it too. It all starts at 5 p.m. (Niesel)

A Special Panel Discussion

Sat., Aug. 19

It's no secret that Cleveland and Northeast Ohio have a rich history of comics and cartoons. The most famous of these creations is certainly Superman, created by high school classmates Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel in Glenville in 1933. In celebration of the Man of Steel and his connection to Cleveland, the Cleveland Public Library has been presenting Superman: From Cleveland to Krypton — an exhibit of art, artifacts and memorabilia —on three floors of the library's main branch. Today, the library hosts a special panel discussion about illustrating super heroes with members of the Great Lakes Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society. Panelists include Ed Black, Craig Boldman, Ron Hill, Polly Keener, Terri Libenson, Chip Sansom and Mark Szorady. Superman: Heroes and Illustration takes place at 1 p.m. in CPL's Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium. Following the discussion, guests are invited to attend a guided tour of the exhibit. Superman: From Cleveland to Krypton remains on view at the library through the end of the year. Admission is free. (Usmani)

The Zine Workshop

Sat., Aug. 19

In today's increasingly digital age, self-publishing is easier than ever, and zines have risen from the underground to mainstream of the art, literary and self-publishing worlds. Traditionally made by individuals or small groups using not much more than a copy machine and a stapler, zines can be used for many purposes, often including art, photography, personal writing, poetry, opinion, fiction, advice and more. Learn more about this eclectic art form today from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., during a workshop at Salty Not Sweet Boutique. The Zine Workshop is led by local printmaker and zine creator Elly Dallas, who documents her personal experiences as a young woman in hopes of inspiring others to share their own stories. Registration for the Zine Workshop is $75. No refunds are available, but cancellations will be credited towards a future workshop at the boutique. To register, visit the website. (Usmani)

The Zine Workshop


Sat., Aug. 19, 7:30 p.m.

More than a year and a half after the release of A Head Full of Dreams, Coldplay is still touring behind its most recent album. Rolling into town tonight, the British rock act will no doubt play many of that record’s syrupy electronic-heavy tunes — including the massive (but let’s be honest, totally ridiculous) hit “Hymn to the Weekend” — to the delight of many of its fans. And while the act is probably exhausted from touring the world (it’s tough out there for rock stars), don’t expect frontman Chris Martin and crew to let up on the energy while in Cleveland. The tour features an enormous set, neon lights galore and, of course, plenty of piano. (Laura Morrison) $29.50-$169.59

Green Day/Catfish and the Bottlemen

Mon., Aug. 21, 7 p.m.

Released last year, Green Day's latest album, Revolution Radio, marked yet another hit for the veteran punk band. The album, which features the pop punk band's 10th No. 1 song, "Bang Bang" and the Top 10 anthem, "Still Breathing," debuted at No. 1 around the world. The Rock Hall inductees bring their Revolution Radio summer tour. The tour kicked off earlier this summer, and if recent setlists are any indication, tonight's show will feature close to 30 songs, including hits such as "Longview," "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" and "American Idiot."
