Friends of Euclid Creek Present an Environmental Double- Header: Art Show and Speaker Series

Cleveland, Ohio, June 2019 – Fifty years ago, on June 22, 1969 Cleveland captured the nation’s attention when the Cuyahoga River caught fire. The river was dead, killed by carelessness and industrial waste. Although the Cuyahoga had caught fire a dozen times before, this was to be the last time the river burned.  National outrage over a burning river turned into national determination to clean up the environment across the United States.  This event in combination with a massive oil spill in California led to the establishment of the Federal Environmental Protection Agency, the Clear Water Act, and the Clean Air Act.  These actions formed the foundation of the environmental protection movement which led to the cleaning of the Cuyahoga.  Citizens and government agencies working together have brought the river back to life so that 50 years later, the Cuyahoga River is once again safe to admire and enjoy.

Nan's Notes

AT WATERLOO ARTS  WaterlooArts

Our Neighborhood Theatre

Miles’ great love, of all the arts, was classical music. If composed by Mozart, so much the better. I’m more of a theatre person, especially if the plays involved are about interesting ideas and interesting people. I am, therefore, very happy to have Playwrights Local hanging out in the Creative Space at Waterloo Arts, doing their distinctive version of what’s going on in the lives of contemporary Americans in general, and Clevelanders in particular.

Next month, we have two productions to look forward to: a staged reading (actors holding scripts, standing at lecterns, magically creating, say, a Brooklyn apartment during a power outage with nothing but their faces and voices), and a more fully staged production of a musical.

Some Playwrights productions are not so much entertainment as opportunities to take part in workshops, some are pretty polished; all I have found engrossing.

Waterloo Makes Music: Tower Music Series

Friday October 5th 6 -8 PM. features The Brave Girls and Istvan Medgyesi.

The Brave Girls are a nihilistic lo-fi folk band sometimes featuring the following band members: Aaron Civil War, Andy Stibora, Lisa Piccolo Stronzo, Eric Schulte, and Jason Weiner. Jeff Niesel of Scene shared this about why you should hear Brave Girls: "This Is a Dangerous Song" benefits from a bluesy guitar riff as Aaron Civil War softly sings, "I will never be cruel to you/that's not how I am." "Let's Get Tested" features a grunge-y guitar riff that sounds like something Dinosaur Jr's J. Mascis might unleash. The somber "Made It Worse" references a relationship on the brink. "In a disagreement with a wife or significant other, you get to a point where nothing is getting better," says Aaron Civil War when asked about the song. "The conversation goes downhill fast. That's what it's about." Aaron Civil War and Lisa Ellis Schafer harmonize well together on the ballad, "This Ain't Nashville," a tune about being a musician in Cleveland. "It has these classic country themes in it and it pokes fun at itself," Aaron Civil War says of the song. "Lisa is amazing. She's like the secret sauce in the band."

Istvan Medgyesi is a singer-songwriter based in Cleveland, Ohio. Medgyesi is inspired by a wide range of music, and you can hear the echoes of an array of American musical traditions intertwined with modal explorations and occasional forays into noise and drone.
