12/26: Michael Stanley and the Resonators at HOB

Posted By on Wed, Dec 23, 2009 at 3:06 PM

In a very tangible sense, Michael Stanley’s connection to Cleveland bears a strong resemblance to many heartland rockers and their home bases: Bob Seger and Detroit, John Mellencamp and Southern Indiana, Bruce Springsteen and Asbury Park. Stanley didn’t become as nationally ubiquitous as his higher-profiled peers, but he came close in the ’80s. He remains a beloved regional artist with a slavish fan base that has followed his every move for the past three decades. Tonight’s show is billed as “request night,” so sign up on Stanley’s fan forum at michaelstanley.com to suggest your favorite songs. Maybe something from the latest Resonators album, Just Another Night, or Stanley’s new solo record, Shadowland? Or how about an obscurity from 1978’s Cabin Fever or 1975’s You Broke It … You Bought It!? Chances are pretty good that “My Town” will be saved for the evening-ending encore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put it on your list. Hey Mavis opens at 8 p.m. at House of Blues (308 Euclid Ave., 216.523.2583, houseofblues.com). Tickets: $30-$80. — Brian Baker
