The campers have affixed a paper sign to a bollard, alerting passersby that they are not homeless. They are camping out for Twenty One Pilots, the musical duo of Joseph Tyler and Josh Dun, famous for such hits as "Ride" and "Stressed Out" from the 2015 smash-hit album Blurryface.
The band plays the Quicken Loans Arena Tuesday night, which means the campers will have to endure another chilly October evening before the concert. According to our sources in the know, it's going to be a "huge-ass show."
Since we're on the topic of homelessness!
Akron businessman Sage Lewis, who runs a tent encampment for the homeless on his property, sued the city earlier this month to let the homeless people stay there. Akron City Council rejected legislation last month that would have created a zoning variance to make the encampment legal.
A group of professors and nonprofits just submitted a joint letter urging City of Akron to allow a life-saving encampment to stay. Disbanding Second Chance Village would put the residents' lives in danger and is likely illegal. cc: @sagerock https://t.co/aJpDcpktbK— Joe Mead (@JosephWMead) June 14, 2018
