Father John Misty Turns In a Transcendent Performance at the Agora

Posted By on Sun, Sep 23, 2018 at 1:54 PM

  • Amber Patrick
Father John Misty strutted onto the Agora stage last night dressed in a stark white suit, his pants slung low on his narrow hips and his jacket slightly billowed around his slight frame. Drenched in a blood red light, guitar firmly slung over his shoulder with his six-piece band surrounding him, Misty immediately commanded attention with his 2012 hit "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings." Hiding behind dark glasses and his signature thick beard, his voice sounded strong and deep as he lured us lower into his hypnotic trance.

Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band Deliver a Tightly Constructed Set at Hard Rock Live

Posted By on Sat, Sep 22, 2018 at 10:58 AM

The idea of an “All Starr” band almost seems like unnecessary padding when you’re talking about the main attraction, who just happens to be a former Beatle. But for nearly 30 years, Ringo Starr has brought peace and love to audiences worldwide with his unique traveling rock ’n’ roll revue that mixes his own songs, both solo and with the Beatles, with a rotating assortment of hits from his fellow bandmates. Last night at Hard Rock Live, the result was a surprisingly tightly constructed 24-song set that came in efficiently just under the two-hour mark.

Local singer-songwriter Steve Wright started performing as a "one-man band" a couple of years ago after he moved to Cleveland from Youngstown. Wright, who plays what he calls "a heavy interpretation of modern rock with a progressive and cinematic feel incorporating pop melodies," cites Jesu, M83, David Bowie, Russian Circles, Tool, Sigur Ros, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Black Sabbath and Coldplay as influences.

In advance of his forthcoming new album, Perspective, he's released a music video for the single "Talking to Myself." Directed by Alexi Barni, the black and white video features one continuous shot of Wright walking down the street. Jim Wirt (Incubus) recorded the song locally at Superior Sound Studios.
