When: Sat., May 27, 8 p.m.
With another two-night New Year’s Eve stand in Cleveland receding into the recent past, Red Wanting Blue returns to the Northeast Ohio area for tonight’s show. The band has fulfilled its three-album deal with Fanatic Records back in 2014 — assembling a mighty trio of rock ‘n’ roll — and now they’re packing up the car and hitting the indie circuit again. The past soul-searching year brought excellent results, from the sound of it. RWB has been a band of best friends for years, but the all-in creative exploration that went into their upcoming album seems to have redefined what they’re doing here in the first place. “We all said that we didn’t want to record any songs on this record unless it was 100-percent unanimous — unless everybody loved the songs,” Terry says. “It’s the greatest collective effort we have ever made.” Watch out for some new tunes tonight, and, of course, the classics.
