10 Things Going on in Cleveland this Weekend (February 21 – 23) 

Eighties rocker Rick Springfield hasn’t had a hit in years yet his fan base is so loyal, he still continues to tour regularly. The documentary film An Affair of the Heart: The Journey of Rick Springfield and his Devoted Fans, even provides a look at his most ardent fans. Given his basic, meat-and-potatoes approach, you wouldn’t think Springfield would inspire such loyalty. Songs such as “Jesse’s Girl” and “I’ve Done Everything For You” are certainly catchy but they’re not exactly deeply meaningful. And they’re not really part of the classic rock songbook either. Not that this has stopped Springfield from persevering. The guy has just issued Songs for the End of the World, an album of hard-driving introspective tunes. As titles such as “I Hate Myself” and “Love Screws Me Up” might imply, the songs are highly personal and build upon the confessions he made in his 2010 tell-all autobiography, Late, Late at Night: A Memoir.
