Mike G's Picks of the Week

Posted By on Mon, Feb 19, 2007 at 2:35 PM

Malajube: Rockin' it in French
This week's top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who's paid to pick them: Monday: Forced Alter Ego -- the second part of photographer Julius M. Lyles' ongoing Internal Baggage Project -- just opened, and it's pretty cool. Lyles asked a bunch of black men about identity, then he took their pictures. The results are an incisive look at businessmen, students, and activists in Cleveland. Tuesday: Plan to get hammered tonight? Then the Apex club has a pretty sweet deal. Every Tuesday and Thursday it offers free limo rides to and from the bar. So you can get plastered in style. The only catch: You have to stay there a couple hours and drink. We see no problem with that. Wednesday: If our college had a Beer School like the Great Lakes Brewing Company [], we would've graduated a lot sooner. Or maybe we'd still be there. Hard to tell. Thursday: Malajube come from Canada, and they make a lotta noise. They also sing in French. Just because we can't understand a word on their new CD, Trompe-l'oeil, doesn't mean we don't get it. They play the Grog Shop tonight. Friday: The Western Reserve Historical Society brings Diana: A Celebration to town today. Filled with the gay icon/dead princess' wedding dress, tiara, and childhood mementos, the exhibit gives Clevelanders a peek into the life of the only royalty Americans ever cared about. --Michael Gallucci
