Nipple Party

9 p.m. Friday, February 4. No cover downstairs, $7 upstairs. The Grog Shop/B-Side Liquor Lounge, 2785 Euclid Hts. Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216-321-5588.


Why a Nipple Party? "Because everybody's got two," says host Xela, one of the few masters-of-ceremony who could assemble such an eclectic happening. A multimedia festival of rock and art, this double-decker bash spills over both floors of the Grog Shop. Xela's 3io rock band headlines an upstairs rock show with jam band Caribou Foot and rock-country cowboys the Jack Fords. And downstairs at the B-Side Liquor lounge, members of arts collective the Scribe Tribe are representing, including DJ Se7en, poet Carla Thompson, hip-hop group Dark Starz, and old-school graff titan Sano (pictured). It's not a party -- it's a carnival.
