Cleveland's Alternative Press magazine celebrates its 21st birthday at the Grog Shop, with full sets by dance-pop sensation Head Automatica (pictured), '80s-rock revivalist Damone, power-poppers the Lashes, and rock up-and-comer the Honour Recital. But the real party takes downstairs, at the B-Side Liquor Lounge, where the rock journal of record for punk, emo, true alternative, and anything else cool and legit will present DJ sets by members of the Bouncing Souls, the Briefs, the Bled, and Head Automatica, in addition to local favorites F. Gunn and Adam Awesome. Mingle with the bands and witness the power of the iPod, as they spin everything from punk to funk.
