Chad Thornsberry

Sun., July 21

Comedian Chad Thornsberry is a Southern man who loves to make people laugh. Thornsberry has a very laidback attitude on stage and will not stop at anything to make you laugh, even if that means the joke is at his expense. Whether joking about how his accent makes people think he can fix their tractor (which he can) or making fun of everyday situations, he's not above self-deprecation. He performs tonight at 7 at Hilarities. Tickets are $13 to $18. (Martin Harp) 216-241-7425

Anyone who donates his or her time to help the lake stay great will be rewarded with one free general admission ticket to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium. Splash Fund leadership provides gloves, containers and guidance and, at the end of each session, the team records and analyzes the junk they have amassed. Over the course of four mornings, last year's volunteers helped the Splash Fund bag 386 pounds of trash that included bits of foam, glass and 7,686 pieces of plastic.

The Psychedelic Furs/James

Fri., July 19, 6:30 p.m.

The British rock band James emerged from gritty Manchester England in the early ’80s and almost immediately singed to Factory Records, the storied label run by the late Tony Wilson. Success followed as the band would go on to release nearly 20 Top 40 singles in the UK. It would famously support the Smiths on their 1985 tour in support of Meat is Murder. But in 2001, after a really terrific run, all was not well, and singer Tim Booth left the group. Just over ten years ago, the band reformed, and last year’s Living in Extraordinary Times has been so popular and successful, it’s resulted in the band playing to the biggest audiences ever. The current tour marks the first time James has toured in North America since their sold out 2012 mini-tour, and the show finds the band paired with the great British rock act Psychedelic Furs.
