Join the Cleveland Scene Press Club. Because No News is Bad News.


Tuesday, August 14. Around the Corner, 18616-20 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216-521-4413.

Skinny is the band formerly known as 2 Skinny Dorks, which changed its name 'cuz there are, like, eight people in the band, and they're not skinny, and they're not dorks. Anyway, they always pack the bar at Around the Corner, and the laid-back crowd skews young, which makes the party a lot like college used to be, but just a little more sophisticated. So come get your master's degree in Advanced Good Times; remedial sessions are available in the courtyard. Oh, and the band: It's like a distillation of the best non-sucky parts of Dave Matthews, but electrified and funkier.
