Lyrical Rhythm

10 p.m. Tuesdays at the B-Side Liquor Lounge, 2785 Euclid Hts. Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216-932-1966.


One of the hottest club nights in Cleveland is more like something you'd expect to stumble across in New York City. Lyrical Rhythm began as an open-mic night, and it's blossomed into something bigger, liver, and louder. Presented by the party pros at Chief Rocka Entertainment, the night is hosted by the Playscape Allstars & Q Nice, and visiting talent ranges from a mic-wrecking by local rhymer Myron to an impromptu dance set by a member of the Stomp troupe. You never know exactly who will show up, but here's one thing to count on: The room is packed by midnight, so claim your spot at the bar -- and on the performance list -- early.
