The tide's turning. For the first time in years, the nightlife traffic from Cleveland to Akron doesn't totally dwarf the flow from Akron to Cleveland. One of the social commuters is DJ Ryan Seibel, who braves the voyage from Cleveland Heights every Friday to spin danceable rock at Thursday's Lounge, where Fridays are actually less packed than Thursdays and Saturdays -- but not by much. Between no-holds-barred requests, the tag team of Seibel and Kage have made the night a proving ground for songs that become staples on the club's signature nights. New tunes from Arctic Monkeys, Modest Mouse, Bloc Party, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah -- you hear 'em here first.
