Weekend Shots!


This year’s whizzing by at a fast pace, isn’t it? Hard to believe we’re almost to February. The weather’s been pretty good here in Cleveland, but you’re not here for weather updates. Which is fine. We’ve got what you’re after, which is a weekend full of good music, no doubt. 

We can’t settle on just one show that you have to be at so we’re shouting out to the Beachland Ballroom & Tavern for having the best shows this weekend. Friday night kicks off your weekend with Freakwater in the Tavern. The alt-country band will have you tippin’ back whiskey sours and nodding along as their lyrics notoriously hit close to home.

Saturday night we’re suggesting some soul in the Ballroom for Wesley Brite and the Hi-Lites who are playing two sets and two fantastic local DJs, Partysweat and Alr!ght. Be sure to say happy birthday to Mark (the owner) if you catch him. Sunday, we’ll see you in the tavern for Jenny Owen Youngs, an upbeat singer/songwriter who’s destined to leave you in a good enough mood to face even Monday morning.

Not your cup of tea? Here’s the rest of the best!
