Seasonal Special Happenings

What are the Odds

When: Sat., May 10 2014

At a time when everything is prefabricated, the 11th bi-annual Emporium of the Weird seems all the more enticing. As its name implies, the event, which takes place at the John S. Knight Center in Akron today from noon to 10 p.m., features jewelry, sculpture and ceramics, photography, drawing, painting, glass, textile pieces and more. This year, organizers have added the Oddmall Comic and Toy Expo featuring more than 100 comic, toy, game, vintage, pop-culture, and other sci-fi related stuff. Local bands such as ShiSho, Tonks & the Aurors, 2d6, Kevin Conaway and Steve Trent will perform. Special-effects makeup artists David Henson Greathouse and Beki Ingram from SyFy’s Face Off will be on hand as will King of the Nerds contestant Alana Smith-Brown and comic illustrator Dan Gorman. Admission is free. (Niesel)
