My Chemical Romance is at the Wolstein tonight
This week's top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who's paid to pick them: Monday: Word around the Scene office is that My Chemical Romance is for girls. Teenage girls to be specific. If that's the case, sign me up for a subscription to Seventeen, because I can't get enough of 'em. Look for me at the Wolstein Center tonight. I'll be the one in the cute little red skirt and the black nail polish. Tuesday: Why stay home and watch Law & Order reruns when you can get a front-row seat at Citizen Police Academy? The workshop takes folks behind the scenes of the Cleveland Police Department -- from a rundown of search-and-seizure techniques to a tour of the 911 call center. Think of it as pre-emptive research. Wednesday: Rita Mae Brown wrote the coming-of-age lesbian novel Rubyfruit Jungle. She also pens books with her cat, Sneaky Pie. The pair just published Puss 'n Cahoots — right after they hit the catnip. Brown (without Sneaky Pie) talks about her book at Joseph-Beth tonight. Thursday: The Epitaph Tour brings a bunch of screamo bands to the Grog Shop tonight: Escape the Fate, I Am Ghost, the Higher, and the Matches. It's gonna be loud. Friday: Grab the kids! Grover's in town. Sesame's Street's purple, easily exasperated monster dons cape and tights and saves the world from grumpy grownups at the State Theatre all weekend. --Michael Gallucci
