Megan Slankard Speaks for Herself


Singer-songwriter Megan Slankard: Come see what's behind the flowers.
Money Where Your Mouth Is: Scene music writers are busy debating exactly at which point Radiohead sold out, so instead a band will make its own case. Artist: Megan Slankard Hometown: "San Francisco-ish." Sounds like: "Lovely folk-rock acoustic lovin' with some contradictorily back-stabbing lyrics." Fun fact: "First band nominated me for TLC's What Not to Wear (a reality makeover show), for which I was flown out to NYC and schooled on the ways of fashion with a trash can (for the old clothes) and a TLC credit card (for the new ones)." Playing: Wednesday, March 7 at Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo Rd., 216-363-1124. 8 p.m., $8 cover, with Joe Rohan and Doug Wood. Why you need to see her: "If you don't I'll cry [lip trembles, eyes water]. Oh, and I put on a heck of a great show." -- Megan
