Looking for something to do this weekend? We've got you covered!
Brujas del Sol, more at Columbus Psych Fest
After traveling and bouncing around from job to job for a bit, Brujas del Sol’s Adrian Lee Zambrano eventually found work as a builder and installer of stained glass. “It’s a super old art,” he said. “A lot of that stuff tells a story, and if you don’t take care of it and pay attention to detail, it’s pretty easy to mess up and very hard to correct once you do.” Zambrano sees similarities between his day job and his music in ways that never surfaced during his time as an electronics salesman. “I care a lot about my craft, both during the day and at night,” he said. “I always want to make sure that I’m doing it the best I can do it, and that I’m paying homage to those artists who put time and effort into it before I did, whether the stained glass side or the music side.”‘Gray Matters’ exhibition opens at Wexner Center for the Arts For/word company’s ‘Patience Worth’ at Barnett Theater Warpaint plays the Newport Music Hall Goodbye June and more at Rock on the Range ‘Norman’ opens in theaters Stephanie Rond ‘Studies and Discourse’ opens at OSU Faculty Club A Lot Like Birds at Double Happiness Dandelion Hunter, Jae Esquire at Ace of Cups Sleep Feet and more at Spacebar Digisaurus plays Rumba Cafe Prodigy X at the Basement Saturday
Sam Craighead at Wild Goose Creative
Sam Craighead commemorates a collegiate comedic prank via “Beaniesnboyds.com,” a song from his excellent new album, The Tuesday Night Music Club. “Set the order as COD / Set aside 5 million for shipping/ We’re getting more Beanie Babies,” Craighead sings in a smooth, understated tone amid a smooth, understated chamber-pop arrangement that’s here and gone in under two minutes. Craighead, who has another solo release (2015 cassette Craig’s Hideaway) under his belt and also played in Columbus bands Heavy Mole and Feature Films, fills The Tuesday Night Music Club with small moments that hint at larger ideas, much like the items in the aisles of a local thrift store he often browses.The Other Box poetry performance at New Harvest Cafe Wavves plays A&R Music Bar The Blasters at Rumba Cafe Art for Franklinton auction at Columbus Idea Foundry Paisha Thomas and Friends at Brothers Drake W.E.

Columbus Crossing Borders Project unveiled at Cultural Arts Center
At a personal and civic milestone in her life, artist Laurie VanBalen’s emotions coalesced around the refugee/immigration issue, because, she said, she saw it as “an issue of, ‘When did we stop caring about each other?’” She began with an idea to have an exhibition featuring her work, as well as contributions from a handful of her artist friends, which would then interact. And thus did VanBalen create the Columbus Crossing Borders Project. The collected artwork, which will be unveiled at the Cultural Arts Center on Sunday, May 21, and will subsequently travel to other places around Central Ohio, hews closely to VanBalen’s original concept, the pieces “crossing borders” into each other. The artists collaborated across mediums and styles to make connections of theme, construct and, in some cases, representation — a hand reaching from one painting into another, for example.Metallica headlines Rock on the Range Last day of Easton Food Festival Aversions Crown at Double Happiness Malcom Holcombe at Natalie’s Coal Fired Pizza
