Drumline Live

When: Thu., Feb. 3 2011

It's all about the beat when Drumline Live takes over the State Theatre tonight. The international touring company is an extravaganza of high-stepping, colorfully costumed, tightly choreographic young musicians toting enough drums and brass to fill a football field. (The fact that the State Theatre stage is smaller than a football field should not be viewed as a negative.) The concept is based on the marching-band tradition that arose among America's historically black colleges and was popularized in the 2002 movie Drumline. In Drumline Live, you get all the musical sizzle — everything from traditional brass-band tunage to hip-hop, R&B, and Motown — sans the sappy teen-movie plot; that alone is worth a rimshot. The drumming starts at 8 p.m., and tickets start at $20. Grab them by calling 216-241-6000 or at playhousesquare.org. The State Theatre is at 1519 Euclid Ave. — Cicora
