Local writer and musician Eddie Fleisher (also known as his alter ego, Johnny La Rock) has just announced the details of his new audio program, Hashtag City, set to launch on Oct. 19. Fleisher has been involved in the music scene in Cleveland for years, playing in bands like Presque Vu and Johnny La Rock & Furface. He's written for local and national publications like Cleveland Scene, Cellar Door, Wax Poetics, Alternative Press and DJ Tech Tools.

Other contributors to the program include: music and arts correspondent Judie Vegh, a prominent Cleveland writer and photographer; actor and writer, Benjamin Gregg, who serves as the show's announcer and theatre correspondent; arts correspondent Candice Mascarenas, who runs Artery Arsenal, an online boutique that offers an eclectic mix of jewelry, handmade home décor, and her own original art; and Adam Boose, owner of Cauliflower Audio, who will provide additional audio technical assistance. Bryan Mravec, a theater technician and production director with Le Femme Mystique Burlesque and Highland High School's theatre and music department, will film the video content.

The first guests for the bi-monthly audio show about music, arts and culture in Cleveland and beyond include indie rock acts These Knees and Ottawa, turntablist P. Stoops, Destroy Cleveland director Matt Greenfield and Talespinner Children's Theatre’s Ali Garrigan. Golden Streets of Paradise and Fresh Produce will debut new songs. The first episode airs at hashtagcityshow.com. After the show ends, the website will post exclusive outtakes, video footage, playlists and a whole slew of extra content. Local indie act Johnny La Rock & Furface will provide the music heard in the background and between segments.
