Welcome to your weekend.
Friday Bicentennial Bear at Ace of Cups
OnDoubt & Distortion, Bicentennial Bear races through a range of bouncy, fuzzy pop-rock songs about learning to decelerate and savor the moment. "I'm slowing down to watch you accelerate," sings frontman Billy Peake on the album-closing "My Love Carries No Anchor," a heartfelt number filled with life advice for his two young children. "I've always been the kind of person who either lamented the past or felt like things will get way better, and until I had kids … I never really appreciated the moment," said Peake, who will join bandmates Adam Dowell (bass), Jason Mowery (drums), Sean Sefcik (guitar) and Leah Wahlin (viola, keys, backing vocals) for a record release show at Ace of Cups.Dan Deacon at Rumba Cafe Fuck the Facts at Spacebar Designer Jennifer Siegel at the Columbus College of Art and Design New Vision Dance Company's Taking Flight at the Garden Theater Room opens in theaters Spotlight opens in theaters TEDx Columbus at the Capitol Theatre Saturday Annual studio sale at the Cultural Arts Center
