10 Things Going on in Cleveland this Weekend (July 11 - 13) 

Singer-songwriter Amy Black’s latest album, This is Home, cooks up a hearty batch of warm, soulful tunes. Opening track “Nobody Knows You” wends around excellent drumming while Black croons soothingly. The whole trip is a very personal endeavor, evidenced by tracks like “Alabama” and “Stronger,” which refract the ups and downs of life through gentle and uptempo songwriting, respectively. The right-hand guitar work is enticing in each song, bringing out a deeper sense of the music either through rhythm and speed or punchy lead confidence. Black infuses her work with enough variety that the listener is kept constantly engaged with her music. Even toward the end of the album, when tracks like “Cat’s in the Kitchen” show up, the terrific instrumentation maintains the collection’s diverse attitude. See her perform at Beachland Tavern. (Sandy) $8 ADV, $10 DOS. 8 p.m.
