John Carroll University’s non-commercial, nonprofit radio station WJCU-88.7 FM is in the middle of its annual fundraising drive, which runs through Sunday night. (You can call 216.397.4438 or go to the website anytime to make a pledge.)
Fans of heavy metal can call in from 6:30-9:30 tonight to Bill Peters’ Metal on Metal show, when hopefully they will be on their way over to the Breakfast Club for the first of two big nights of some of the best local metal bands to benefit the station.
Starting at 7 tonight, Cryptkicker, the Suede Brothers, Venomin James, Lick the Blade and ESD will play. Tomorrow at the same time, the lineup features Shok Paris, Eternal Legacy, Ground Zero, Soulless and Achetype.
Each show is $7 at the door.
And if you’re not all metalled out after that, remember that this weekend, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque is screening Until the Light Takes Us, a 2008 documentary about the infamous ’90s Norwegian black-metal scene, at 9:50 p.m. tomorrow and 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $8. —Anastasia Pantsios
