Tokyo Police Club Concert (3/01)

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Don't miss Toronto's quirky, high-energy indie rockers Tokyo Police Club as they perform at the Grog.

Featuring vocalist/bassist Dave Monks, keyboardist/vocalist Graham Wright, guitarist/percussionist Josh Hook, and drummer/percussionist Greg Alsop. The band formed in the wake of the breakup of the foursome's previous project; after a few months of not making music together, they regrouped as Tokyo Police Club in 2005. They began performing live that summer, and that fall they played the Montreal Pop Festival, where the group's rousing reception convinced them to make Tokyo Police Club a full-time venture.

Monks quit school, and early in 2006 the band signed with local label Paperbag Records and began recording their debut EP, A Lesson in Crime, which was released that spring. Buoyed by blog and MySpace buzz, Tokyo Police Club embarked on their largest tour yet that fall. Around the same time, A Lesson in Crime was re-released with wider distribution, and 2008 saw the release of the band's full-length debut, Elephant Shell.

"Running the Sahara" is a documentary narrated and produced by Oscar winner Matt Damon, directed by Oscar winner James Moll, and featuring music by Grammy winner Wyclef Jean (I love the music on the website!). the film follows three ultra-marathoners on their 111-day, 4,300-mile attempt to run across Africa's Sahara Desert.

Celebrate Darwin (2/12-15)

Thursday, February 12th through Sunday, February 15th, 2009

Join the staff of the Cleveland Botanical Gardens as they invite you to Celebrate the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birthday and the 150th anniversary of The Origin of Species.

An English naturalist Darwin realised and demonstrated that all species of life have evolved over time from common ancestors through the process he called "natural selection." The fact that evolution occurs became accepted by the scientific community and much of the general public in his lifetime, while his theory of natural selection came to be widely seen as the primary explanation of the process of evolution in the 1930s, and now forms the basis of modern evolutionary theory. In modified form, Darwin’s scientific discovery remains the foundation of biology, as it provides a unifying logical explanation for the diversity of life

A special display of rare books and hands-on activities will be part of the Museums celebration. Free with Garden Admission, no registration required. 1-3pm

A Signing with Buzz (2/13)

Friday, February 13th, 2009

It's time for the Tremont Art Walk (Friday night) and what better way to kick off the festivities than to stop by Visible Voice for a book signing with John Gorman and The Buzzard.

This rock and roll radio memoir takes you behind the scenes at the nation's hottest station during FM's heyday, from 1973 to 1986. Sex and drugs, music and merchandising, it was a wild time when the FM airwaves were wide open for innovation. John Gorman led a small band of true believers who built Cleveland's WMMS from a neglected stepchild into an influential powerhouse. The station earned high praise from musicians and even higher ratings from listeners. Gorman tells how WMMS remade rock radio while Cleveland staked its claim as the "Rock and Roll Capital" by breaking many major international music acts.

Filled with juicy insider details, this fast-paced story will entertain anyone who listened in during those glory days when FM delivered excitement and the Buzzard ruled the airwaves.

Twestival for water (2/12)

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

This Thursday, Harry Buffalo (2120 E 4th St, Cleveland, OH) is sponsoring the first ever Twestival (Twitter Festival) to benefit Charity-Water. According to the site , 1.1 billion people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water. That's one in six of us.

Many communities in developing nations often have a plentiful supply of clean drinking water just below the ground, but no way to get to it. This is where charity-water and their partner organizations come in. Drilling a well can cost from $4,000 - $12,000 USD and many living on less than $1 a day cannot afford one in their community, even if the money is combined.

On Thursday 100+ international cities will be hosting a Twestival to bring Twitter communities together in an effort to raise money for charity: water. Twestival is organized 100% by volunteers around the world and 100% of the money raised from these events will go directly to support charity: water projects. By rallying together globally, under short timescales, for a single aim on the same day, the Twestival hopes to bring awareness to this global crisis.

6pm Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door. There will be a lot of interesting people, a raffle and an opportunity to enjoy a unique event while benefiting those who do not have the fortune of clean water on a daily basis.

Eat a Book (2/07)

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

Joseph Beth Books at Legacy Village invites you to join them as they welcome author and budhist psychologist Pavel Somov as he introduces his new book "Eating the Moment."

This book is filled with techniques, exercises and tools to help you control overeating. These practices can be used at mealtimes to develop a more positive and healthy relationship to food. You'll learn to develop awareness of the experience of eating and become more centered around your eating. By developing habitual awareness and a playful attitude about the process of eating, you will find that your eating slows down, becoming less compulsive and dictated by external forces such as boredom, emotional pain, or habit.

There are 141 specific exercises in the book to promote mindful eating. Also included are brief discussions of why we eat and stop eating, mindfulness principles, finding meaning in food and the act of eating, and guidance for developing a personal "philosophy of eating."

Somov will be on hand at 2pm to discuss the thought behind the book and the helpful techniques. Book signing available.

Ben Taylor (2/05)

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

The Beachland Ballroom presents Mr. Benjamin Taylor, get you show tickets today!

As the son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, Ben Taylor was born into a musical world with much promise. His older sister, Sally Taylor, found her niche in the industry early on, but the younger Taylor never sought to follow the footsteps of his famous parents. His childhood might have been surrounded by recording sessions and tours across the world, but initially it wasn't in Taylor's mind to become a singer.

Taylor was raised in Manhattan and spent time in private schools before leaving them behind in ninth grade. By now, he'd taught himself how to play guitar, but traveling the world and connecting with nature was Taylor's passion. Trips across Asia and Europe opened Taylor's eyes to Earth's greatest features, leaving him to think he'd might like to be a gardener or a farmer. Still, he had his hand in a few musical makings. Before he turned 20, Taylor's cover of the Beatles' "I Will" landed on the soundtrack to a domestic comedy featuring Paul Reiser, Bye Bye, Love. He eventually recorded an album for Epic's label The Work Group, but it folded shortly after Taylor inked his contract. He was left feeling disenchanted, unaware what he was supposed to do with his life because he still wasn't convinced music was for him. Taylor would soon come to realize that music was the only career he'd understand.
