WED 09/27

Duos of Dissent

Given the current socio-political climate, it seems like a perfect time for a show titled Art of Dissent. Hosted by the Shaker Community Gallery, Art of Dissent remains on view through Oct. 7. This group exhibition showcases the work of Cleveland-based artists known for expressing their dissatisfaction with the status quo and current issues such as economic inequalities, polarizing politics and an abusive culture. Participating artists include Laura and Gary Dumm, Liz Maugans and Michelangelo Lovelace. In conjunction with the show, the Shaker Community Gallery hosts several community forums this month. Tonight at 7, the gallery hosts a discussion titled Duos of Dissent. It features two sets of spouses who also work together: poets, educators and literary consultants Sara Holbrook and Michael Salinger and Art of Dissent participating artists Laura and Gary Dumm. It's free. (Josh Usmani)

Happy Hour Classic Film Series

The locally owned and operated Capitol Theatre, in the Gordon Square Arts District, regularly presents special screenings of cult classics and oddball flicks that don't receive wide distribution. That includes the Happy Hour Classic Film series, a monthly screening of a classic film that kicks off with a happy hour cocktail party in the lobby. The parties start at 6 p.m., and the movies screen at 7. Tonight's edition features Heathers, the classic black comedy from 1989 that stars Winona Ryder as a high-school girl who falls for the mysterious new boy (Christian Slater) who has just transferred to her school. Tickets are $10. (Jeff Niesel)

In Conversation About Community Engagement and CMA

The Cleveland Museum of Art and Karamu House recently announced a partnership to help Karamu House establish a new public space to archive and showcase valuable memorabilia related to African American theater history, as well as neighborhood and Cleveland history. As part of this new initiative, the organizations plan to scan, digitize and preserve Karamu's storehouse of historic items, artifacts and photos collected over the theater's 102-year history. Tonight at 6 p.m., the Women's Council of the Cleveland Museum of Art hosts its annual evening program in the Gartner Auditorium. In Conversation About Community Engagement and CMA features a discussion between Tony Sias, president and CEO of Karamu House, and Cyra Levenson, director of education and academic affairs at the CMA.

Indians versus Minnesota Twins

At the start of the season, it looked as if this series against the Twins would have a huge impact on who would win the division title. But after going on a 22-game win streak that ended earlier this month, the Indians clinched the division. Of course, there's still the issue of securing home field advantage, so the Tribe still has a reason to win tonight's game. First pitch is at 7:10. Tickets start at $13, and the two teams face off again tomorrow at 12:10 p.m. (Niesel)

John Cleese and the Holy Grail

Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a 1975 film that parodies the Arthurian legend, remains one of the greatest spoofs of all time. Tonight at 7:30 at the State Theatre, John Cleese, of the Monty Python troupe who starred in the movie, revisits the story in what's billed as "a live and truly unforgettable evening of conversation and audience Q&A." Before the live portion of the program, Monty Python and the Holy Grail will screen in its entirety on the big screen. Tickets start at $59. (Niesel)

The new documentary film, Black Sabbath: The End of the End, chronicles the last show in the band's final tour.

Punch Brothers

A bluegrass ensemble fronted by talented mandolin player Chris Thile, the Punch Brothers will open the 2017-18 Artist Recital Series at Oberlin tonight with an 8 p.m. performance in Finney Chapel. Since 2013, Punch Brothers, a group that also includes Oberlin graduate Chris Eldridge on guitar, has been in residence at Oberlin in the conservatory's American Roots residency program, which actor-comedian Ed Helms, a 1996 Oberlin College graduate, established. The group has conducted master classes and performances. It has also held listening parties and off-the-cuff jam sessions on campus. Tickets for the concert cost $35 ($30 for seniors, members of the military, and Oberlin faculty, staff, and alumni, and $10 for all students). An Oberlin tradition since 1878, the Artist Recital Series is one of the oldest continuing concert series in the United States.

SUN 10/01

Browns versus Cincinnati Bengals

Given that the Browns and Bengals have both started the season with two losses, there's reason to hope that the Browns can eke out a win against their Ohio-based rivals. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has really struggled in the team's first games, posting a cumulative rating of 47.2, so the tough Browns defense should be able to capitalize on his tendency to make mistakes. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. at FirstEnergy Stadium. Tickets start at $50. (Niesel)
