WIRTW #362 (the #rockweek2015 edition)

Cleveland is popping. We landed the 2016 Republican Convention. We keep showing up on national “best of” lists—best city to visit, best food, best beer…. Our urban renaissance continues at warp speed. We’re even revitalizing the Flats. And, one week from tomorrow, April 11, Rock Week starts, in honor of my city’s triennial hosting of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Rock Week kicks off with an awesome event. All day April 11, the Rock Hall will open its door for anyone and everyone to enter … free. The event, which the Rock Hall has dubbed Celebration Day, will feature two stages of music, food trucks, family programming and caps with fireworks in Voinovich Park.

At 2:30 pm, School of Rock will perform a set of music by 2015 inductee Joan Jett, featuring (among others) Norah Hyman on guitar and vocals. If you’re looking for something fun to do as we wait for spring to, well, spring, stop by the Rock Hall on April 11 and see my girl strum, sing, and rock. Here’s a small taste.
