Friday Oliver Oak plays Big Room Bar
As a teenager, Oliver Oak singer and guitarist Kyle Tucker played in a smattering of noisy punk-rock bands and traversed the city by skateboard. It's a chaotic world miles removed from that occupied by the Columbus band, a hushed folk-pop quintet that favors sad, stately songs colored in lilting strings, strummed acoustic guitar and delicate two- and three-part harmonies.In Celebration of Prince at Ace of Cups Freddie Gibbs at The Basement "Book of Mormon" at the Ohio Theatre Tortilla Street FoodandJeni's Ice Creams kiosksreopen at Columbus Commons Art 360° continues at Columbus Museum of Art Destructo and Ilovemakonnen at The Bluestone Saturday DTCV brings Parisian punk to Tree Bar
Garage-punk duo DTCV (pronounced "detective") has a Francophile streak matched only by its leftist political leanings. On the band's latest,Confusion Moderne, frontwoman Lola G., singing almost exclusively in her native French, directs her words in support of "anti-capitalist, neo-anarchist, radical feminist and pro-environmental" ideals.Spiffy plays Kafe Kerouac Tan at Double Happiness BalletMet hosts Ohio Dance performance Jeezy at The Xclusive Venue Citizen at Skully's Music-Diner Sunday Art and poetry partner for "Poetically Inspired"
In an exhibition that both examines the nature of artist inspiration and celebrates National Poetry Month, the gallery paired five artists with five poets to create works inspired by one another. An April 24 event will allow patrons to hear from both the poets and artists, and to try their hand at some poetry themselves. Typewriters will be available for the creation of collective poetry. Patrons can create poems based on art made by gallery artists on index cards and Larry Smith (he of the "Six Word Memoir") will have a station as well."Salami Dreamin'" book debuts at Seventh Son Wild Belle plays A&R Music Bar Craftin' Outlaws annual Spring Fling Conjure at Double Happiness Garth Brooks at Schottenstein Center
