‘Dark Love IV: Spells and Hexes’ highlights Franklinton Friday
The fourth annual "Dark Love" exhibition is a chance to explore these various applications, with "Spells and Hexes" as this year's theme. "The exhibition is something a little darker than a traditional Valentine's Day show," artist/curator Tona Pearson said. "I asked for some artist input on the theme, and I liked ['Spells and Hexes'] because it has a little richer of a vibe, something to spice it up and make it a little more spooky. It's going to be a pretty heavy show, with some pretty magical stuff."Char Norman’s “Ghost Forest” opens at CAC Oscar Shorts at the Gateway Film Center Buckeye Bourbon House opens on Gay Street Aina Turiaga and Steve Jebbett solo shows at Strongwater “New Works” by Joshua Penrose continues at 934 Gallery Minions of Mayhem at Spacebar The Headmasters Smiths tribute at Rumba Cafe Honore Sharrer “A Dangerous Woman” opens at CMA
Hamilton Leithauser at the Newport
Sometime after parting ways with longtime band the Walkmen, singer Hamilton Leithauser signed a contract with Domino Records for what would become his first solo album, 2014's Black Hours. Soon after the signing, a Domino exec ran into friend Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend and told him about Leithauser's new solo endeavor. "Then Rostam just wrote me out of the blue and asked me if I wanted to come over to his house and try working on music sometime," said Leithauser by phone recently. "I didn't have that much faith that it would work, to be honest, but I went and we just tried it out. And on that first day we wrote part of the song that became '1959.' We clicked."Reese-a-palooza at Big Room Bar honors Reese Neader “Hearts United” and “Drawing on Inner Strength” at Second Sight Studio “Bleeding Hearts” combines dance, drama at Garden Theater Snow Day free family-friendly event in Genoa Park “3 Artists” exhibition continues at Hammond Harkins Pucks and Pints Bar Crawl in the Arena District July Talk plays Rumba Cafe Triad Eternal album release at A&R Music Bar Searius Addishin “Tears of Pleasure” poetry release at Wild Goose
Roseanne Cash takes McCoy Center stage
Cash, whose earliest musical memory consists of hearing her dad's deep, graveled voice, has spent the better part of her last three full-length albums both exploring and coming to terms with her past. Black Cadillac, from 2006, and The List, from 2009, find the singer confronting her father's long musical shadow (songs on The List, for example, were culled from a listing of 100 essential country songs her father presented her when she turned 18), while The River & the Thread, released in 2014, more broadly delves into her Southern roots, which Cash said she spent much of her life pushing away.Short North Stage’s ‘Hand of God’ continues Mashita Noodles hosts ramen pop-up at Harvest Jordan DePaul at Woodlands Tavern BalletMet presents “Peter Pan”
