Looking for something to do this weekend? We've got you covered.
Yellow Paper Planes at Ace of Cups
In making Yellow Paper Planes’ new album, Building a Building, Joshua P. James and his bandmates challenged each other not to fall into any singer-songwriter ruts. “I explicitly said, going into this record, I want to be able to not play my guitar at all and still have these songs make sense,” James said. “That was a key point for us to make, because then everybody else’s focus shifted [from] following me and whatever strum pattern I’m putting down to trying to understand the song.”Brian Wilson plays the Palace Theatre ProMusica offers ‘Naked Classics’ at the Southern Theatre ‘The Lost City of Z’ opens in theaters ‘Free Fire’ opens in theaters Columbus Dance Theatre presents ‘Moving Words’ The Graphics play Big Room Bar Davy Knowles at Rumba Cafe Magic Dick, Barrence Whitfield at Valley Dale Ballroom Brandon Can’t Dance at the Summit Saturday
Record Store Day at suggested bar crawl
Record Store Day, as you can probably tell, celebrates local record stores and the music enthusiasts that back them. Now in its 10th year, this annual event creates frenzies in record stores nationwide, as collectors scramble to take advantage of the day’s special deals, exclusive releases and any in-store concerts. It may be especially exciting to celebrate RSD in Columbus, because our city’s record store participants just so happen to be in convenient reach of some of our best watering holes. Take a gander at our list, where we have the best record store-bar combinations outlined for you. (Please note: booze and intense record collecting don’t mix particularly well in high quantities, so be safe and respectful out there.)Bummers EP release show at Ace of Cups Ohio Filmmaker Matt Starr’s “The JJ Project” screened at Drexel Theatre Columbus March for Science starts at Statehouse Second Sight hosts Charlie Donaldson open house, CCAD photography show The New Pornographers at the Newport Music Hall Roosevelt Coffeehouse two-year anniversary party EDM and rap-heavy #Fest in Athens Lineage Brewing Company celebrates two-year anniversary Clint Davidson ‘Respond and React’ artist talk at 934 Gallery ‘Before Next There is Now’ MFA Exhibition at CCAD Beeler Gallery Granville’s Three Tigers Brewing marks one-year anniversary Angaleena Presley and Megan Palmer at Rumba Cafe OSU Men’s Glee Club at Weigel Auditorium Sunday
Craig Robinson at the Funny Bone
You want to know what it was like for kids in music class who had Craig Robinson as their teacher? Check out one of his standup gigs. Robinson, who will bring his now-ubiquitous piano to the Funny Bone for five shows this weekend, was a music teacher in Chicago before he decided to give comedy a go. Comedy has worked out, given his success as Darryl Philbin on TV’s “The Office” and featured roles in films including “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” “Hot Tub Time Machine” and “Sausage Party.” But it was the piano that helped him find his comedic voice, and his experience in the classroom that honed his skills as a performer.Simply Rolled Ice Cream celebrates new space inside Oats & Barley Market OSU Women’s Glee Club at Weigel Auditorium Columbus Civic Theater’s ‘Long Day’s Journey Into Night’ Hackensaw Boys at Woodlands Tavern
