Consume & Conserve Fundraiser

Thu., Oct. 17

Declining water quality, loss of wetlands habitat, natural predators and illegal poaching have threatened spotted turtles in Northeast Ohio. The Greater Cleveland Aquarium's Splash Fund and SPOTD, a collection of regional environmental and educational agencies, have teamed up to try to save the creatures. Last year, Terrestrial Brewing Company joined the effort. The local craft brewer donated proceeds from the sale of a special brew to the cause and raised $5,000 in the first year of the partnership. From 6 to 9 tonight, Terrestrial will host a free Consume & Conserve Friendraiser to provide updates on the efforts to boost and monitor spotted turtle populations in Northeast Ohio. There will be a raffle, and attendees can help the cause by purchasing a spotted turtle plush, ordering a limited edition Save the Spotteds T-shirt or just buying a pint of Terrestrial's I Am Still Saving the Turtles IPA.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band

Thu., Oct. 17, 7:30 p.m.
MGM Northfield Park 10705 Northfield Rd., Northfield Eastern Suburbs

The Traveler, the latest offering from singer-guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd, kicks off with a bang as both “Woman Like You” and “Long Time Running” pack a punch. Both songs draw equally from blues and rock, and Sheperd’s rough vocals make the songs feel particularly gritty and potent. Decades into his career, the Louisiana native sounds as riled up as ever. After performing the Buffalo Springfield tune “Mr. Soul” at a benefit show with Springfield founders Stephen Stills and Neil Young, he decided to include it on this album. The disc also includes his take on the Joe Walsh rocker "Turn to Stone." (Niesel) 330-908-7793
