Cleveland Rocks: 11/18 – 11/24

November 18, 2013

It’s no secret that Cleveland has a great music scene. From the local acts to the international touring mega stars, our fair city has something happening every single night of the week. Here are our picks from here through the weekend.


Monday, 11/18

Corb Lund & the Hurtin’ Albertans at Beachland Ballroom & Tavern

“Goth girls to survivalists, bovines to bibles, antique pistols to vintage motorcycles: Alberta-born honky-tonker Corb Lund’s songcraft covers it all. From a rustic retreat deep in the Rocky Mountain forest, Cabin Fever, Lund’s enthralling new album, evolved from a period of introspection and hard traveling. Just like the prolific Lund’s subjects run the gamut, so do the sonics on the live-sounding long-player, ranging from rockabilly to Western swing, cowboy balladry to country-rock. And, of course, the occasional yodel…”

Little Big League at Now That’s Class

“little big league, formerly hoop dreams, is a new band from philadelphia featuring post post’s michelle zauner (vocals) and kevin o’halloran (guitar), as well as deven craige (golden ages, strand of oaks) on bass and ian dykstra (titus andronicus) on drums they won a contest to record some stuff their first single is called tokyo drift and it will probably be released p soon.”

Wednesday, 11/20

Cat Power at the Grog Shop

“SUN is the new studio album from Cat Power. Six years after her last album of original material, Chan Marshall has moved on from her collaborative forays into Memphis soul and Delta blues. She wrote, played, recorded and produced the entirety of SUN by herself, a statement of complete control that is echoed in the songs’ themes.”

Thursday, 11/21

Hungarian State Folk Ensemble at State Theatre

“The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble was founded in 1951 with the purpose of collecting, preserving and presenting the treasures of Hungarian folklore. The HSFE presents all folk-related Hungarian genres on stage: historic music, authentic folk music and dance, dramatic folk plays, as well as traditional-based world music, show-dancing and the elements of contemporary dance-house tradition. Its variegated repertoire has made the HSFE one of the most widely performing ensembles of the world: during the six decades of its existence, the HSFE has performed in 50 countries of four continents, entertaining more than 8 million people altogether. At home (8 Corvin ter, Budapest), the HSFE performs about 100-120 times a year, beside being regular guest of theatres all over the Carpathian basin.”

Friday, 11/22

Jake Miller at House of Blues

“Jake Miller, born November 28, 1992, is an American rapper, singer, musician and songwriter from Weston, Florida. He is currently attending the University of Miami. In high school the multi-talented musician who taught himself to play the drums and guitar at a young age, put out a few homemade music videos on YouTube which immediately created a buzz and attracted the attention of music business insiders who began to guide Jake on his journey.”

Saturday, 11/23

P!NK at Quicken Loans Arena

“P!nk has never been afraid to speak her mind, bare her soul, and share her deepest feelings in her songs. As she casually confers, “I have no choice. It’s what I do.” Indeed, it is what P!nk does. And, her 23 million in album sales, two Grammy Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards, and eight top 10 hit singles are proof that the tattooed badass with the heart of a pussycat does what she does well. Very well. But, with her fifth studio album, Funhouse (Oct. 28 via LaFace/Zomba), P!nk gets even more personal, more exposed, and more revealing.”

Sunday, 11/24

Matuto Ahi-Nama at Beachland Ballroom & Tavern

“It’s Carnival in Recife. It’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans. And watch out: That just may be the Devil spinning through the drunken, dancing crowd, trying to get friendly with the saint in disguise, with the diamond in the rough. The rolling drums and quicksilver accordion licks, the earthy vibe and thoughtful reflections mingle on Matuto’s latest refinement of their Appalachia-gone-Afro-Brazilian sound, The Devil and The Diamond (Motema Music; release: May 14, 2013).”
