With the Madison Avenue development project happening this summer, the folks at Mahall's, the Lakewood club/bowling alley/cool place to hang out and get a beer, decided to skip LKWD Music Fest, their annual indoor/outdoor summer blowout concert, to avoid conflicts with the road construction. Instead, they'll be spreading "the music awesomeness," as they put it, over six shows that take place from June to August.
The Mahall's Summer Music Series launches next week with the hip-hop act Shabazz Palaces
(June 10). Singer-songwriter Benjamin Booker
(June 13), the dream pop act Mr. Twin Siste
r (July 13), the instrumental jazz/hip-hop act Bad Bad Not Good
(July 29) and the synth pop group Gap Dream
(Aug. 22) follow. Bad Bad Not Good will be making their Cleveland debut, and Gap Dream hasn't played Cleveland in a year. One more show will take place on Aug. 15. That concert will be announced in mid-June. Until June 9, you can pick up an all-access pass for $50. Only a limited number of passes will be sold; they're available through Ticketfly
