Top Entertainment Picks for This Week

Stomp comes to Akron
This week's top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who's paid to pick them: Monday: The Cleveland Cinematheque screens Sunset Boulevard, one of the best movies ever made. Part noir, part black comedy, all scathing hatred for the Hollywood machine. Tuesday: Reggae singer Pato Banton plays Wilbert's. Back in the early '90s, he scored a college radio hit with a cover of the Police's "Spirits in the Material World." He's been searching for career resuscitation ever since. Wednesday: Check out the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's new Warped: 12 Years of Music, Mayhem, and More exhibit [] tonight, when the Rock Hall stays open till 9 p.m. Young punks finally take over the graying hall. Thursday: Singer-songwriter David Martin makes your Valentine's Day gift look totally lame. Martin wrote a bunch of songs, recorded them, and put them on an iPod for his wife. The songs became his debut album, Something in Your Eyes, which Martin will perform at Wilbert's. Friday: Stomp comes to Akron, proving once and for all that you can make a career beating on all that shit your mom has in her cupboard. --Michael Gallucci
