  • | 8:00pm - | Shows, Festivals, and Fairs
    - Two of the most fun live bands join together to bring you not only a concert, but a rock n roll event. It’s NRBQ vs Los Straitjackets.

    NRBQ's music casually mixes up barrelhouse R&B, British Invasion pop, fourth-gear rockabilly, exploratory free jazz, and dozens of other flavors. The bottom line is that these guys give a stomp-down rhythm that gets fans dancing in the aisles.

    Los Straitjackets are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Whether you’re drawn in by the driving rhythms, the surging surftastic guitars, you have been given access to one wild and rollicking rock n roll party.

  • - As Rolling Stone puts it, “To call Alejandro Escovedo the godfather of modern country rock would sell him short.” Bottom line - if you like Springsteen, Petty, or any other legendary rock stars of that ilk and are not listening to Alejandro, you better get started. You'll thank us, we promise.

    Few folks this side of Neil Young or Gram Parsons are as cited as often as Escovedo is when it comes to artists vital to the melding of rock and twang. From his early days with The Nuns, to his later forays into alt-country with the True Believers, to his more recent work, Escovedo has been and continues to be a critically influential figure in modern American rock and roots music.

  • - The 2016 Republican National Convention will convene in Cleveland, Ohio on July 18-21, 2016. The RNC chose a 2016 convention date much earlier than in recent elections, allowing the Republican nominee to draw upon campaign cash designated to be spent only in the general election.

    Ohio has been a battleground swing-state throughout United States campaigning history. The last candidate to win the presidential election without Ohio was Democrat John F. Kennedy in 1960. The last Republican presidential candidate to win the election without Ohio was Abraham Lincoln, 100 years earlier, in 1860. Cleveland last hosted the Republican National Convention in 1936.

    The main 2016 Republican National Convention venue will be the Quicken Loans Arena. This main convention center is located in downtown Cleveland, and referred to locally as "The Q". The multipurpose arena seats 20,500, and includes 2,000 club seats and 88 luxury suites. It is home to three professional sports teams and hosts numerous entertainment events. Other supporting venues within walking distance of 2016 RNC main venue include the Cleveland Convention Center and the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.

    Other cities that were considered to host the 2016 Republican National Convention included Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Columbus and Phoenix were eliminated on April 2, 2014. Cincinnati and Las Vegas withdrew on May 22, 2014. On June 25, 2014, the Republican National Committee announced that the cities of Cleveland and Dallas would continue to the final round of consideration to host the 2016 Convention. The recommendation to select 'Cleveland 2016' was made following a final review by the Republicans' site selection committee on July 8, 2014.
