Flogging Molly – Agora

Flogging Molly, a renowned name in the punk scene, is a band that brings together the talents of Dave King (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, bodhran), Bridget Regan (violin, tin whistle, vocals), Dennis Casey (guitar, vocals), Matt Hensley (accordion, concertina, vocals), Nathen Maxwell (bass guitar, vocals), Spencer Swain (mandolin, banjo, guitar, vocals), and Mike Alonso (drums, percussion).

Their journey began as the resident band at Molly Malone’s in Los Angeles. Through relentless touring and building a dedicated fan base, they’ve established themselves over the past two decades. Their energetic debut showcase, Swagger, marked the beginning of a discography that now includes five additional studio albums.

Flogging Molly has graced numerous late-night television shows and even hosted their own sell-out Salty Dog Cruise in the Caribbean. They also organize an annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Los Angeles. Currently, they are working on a new album under Rise Records, following their latest LP, Life Is Good.

In a recent move, the band reissued Swagger with exclusive tracks and an Irish traditional set. This reissue also includes a 60-minute video feature and exclusive merchandise in a collectible box set.

Cake – Jacobs Pavilion

Hailing from Sacramento, CA, the band CAKE is a unique blend of originality and creativity. Imagine a party where Hank Williams Sr. and Sly Stone are the hosts, and the soundtrack is AC/DC records played in reverse – that’s the essence of this band. CAKE’s commitment to its founding principles has only intensified over time.

Initially formed as a counter-response to the grunge movement, CAKE has carved out a niche for themselves with their democratic approach, self-sufficiency, and innovative music. They stand alone, without any apparent counterparts in terms of sound or outlook.

Not only do they write, arrange, produce, and perform their own music, but they have also mastered the art of engineering their recording projects in their self-sufficient solar-powered studio. The studio often generates surplus power, causing the building’s electrical meter to run backward.

Their latest album, “Showroom of Compassion”, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and was praised as “deadpan brilliance” by the New Yorker. Despite blending various genres and influences, CAKE has managed to create a sound and vision that is distinctly their own.

Currently, the band is working on their ninth album, which is slated for release in 2023.


Brandi Carlile – Blossom Music Center

The gifted singer-songwriter unveiled her most recent work, “In These Silent Days”, in 2021. As with her previous works, it is imbued with lyrical poetry, reflecting Carlile’s diverse influences from pop, country, and folk genres. She will be performing at Blossom tonight at 7:30.


Cleveland Wing Week – Mulitple Restaurants Around Cleveland

During the football season, there’s no tastier pairing than football and wings. Right now, wing enthusiasts can enjoy a special offer during Cleveland Wing Week while catching this weekend’s games.

With only 2 days left today until September 17, some of Northeast Ohio’s most beloved wing spots are dishing out six wings for just $7 as part of Cleveland Wing Week.

“Cleveland Wing Week is a full week dedicated to celebrating the wing. Each participating restaurant in Cleveland Wing Week will showcase their unique spin on wings, featuring signature sauces, secret menu delights, and more,” as stated on the Cleveland Wing Week website.


Sunday, September 17th

Jonas Brothers – Rocket Mortgage Field House

The Jonas Brothers ushered in a new era with their latest single, “Waffle House,” which was released by Republic Records on April 7th. This single is a precursor to their upcoming full-length album, “The Album,” which is scheduled to drop on May 12th. This exciting new phase was guided by executive producer Jon Bellion, known for his work with artists like Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, and Halsey.

To kick off 2023 on a high note, the band was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 30, 2023.

Their journey to success has been remarkable, highlighted by their 5x-platinum single, “Sucker,” which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100. This achievement marked their first #1 hit and the first #1 debut by a group in this century. The Jonas Brothers’ story was also chronicled in the Amazon Original film, “Chasing Happiness,” which documented their rise and return to music.

Following this, they achieved their third #1 album with the platinum-selling “Happiness Begins” on Republic Records. The album’s success brought them numerous awards, including three Billboard Music Awards, a 2019 MTV VMA for “Best Pop Video,” “Best Duo/Group” at the 2020 iHeart Music Awards, and two Teen Choice Awards, including the prestigious “Decade Award.” Additionally, they earned American Music Awards nominations and a coveted Grammy nomination.

The Jonas Brothers also joined forces with Marshmello for the hit “Leave Before You Love Me,” which spent six weeks in the Top 10 on Top 40 radio and amassed millions of streams and views.


Doggie Brunch – Terrestrial Brewing Company

Terrestrial Brewing Company, established in 2017 by founders Ryan Bennett and Ralph Sgro, emerged from their shared passion for beer and the brewing industry. Collaboratively, they embarked on the journey of conceptualizing and launching this brewery with a singular focus on offering an exclusive in-house beer experience.
