The Shrunken Head's design?wooden slats, faux-porthole windows, and strategically placed barrels?calls to mind an old vintage ship. Throw in the exposed brick walls, the pinball, and billiards, and you've got something between a tiki- and a dive-bar: dimly lit, sparse, but clean and deliberate. The menu follows suit with a touch of the nautical. Dishes such as the Hemingway?a melange of red wine basil sauce, mozzarella, garlic, and tuna?can be served as a pizza or a sub, as can the Four-In-One that includes spinach, feta, pepperoni, salami, and bell peppers. Drink specials such as Yuengling and PBR make for apt choices during live music that frequently takes place inside.
ProMusica Chamber Orchestra not only celebrates some of the most beautiful music ever written, it helps artists create more. Since its founding in 1978, it has commissioned 59 pieces and presented more than 100 world premieres by composers such as Peter Schickele and Pulitzer Prize winner Aaron Jay Kernis. This, coupled with the ensemble's tendency to mix time-tested pieces with modern American masterpieces, has helped it rack up eight awards from the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers.
Formed in the glory days of heavy metal, Queensrÿche rocks audiences with songs that reveal the fierce polish of 30 years of evolving artistry. The band's distinctive mix of prog rock, metal, and subliminal messaging rocketed their Empire album up the charts, launching hits such as "Silent Lucidity," "Jet City Woman," and "Best I Can." Normally reserved only for members of Queensrÿche's fan club, a backstage meet-and-greet lets a small group of the devoted make personal connections with the four lords of loudness, shaking their lightning-fast hands and comparing headbanging techniques. With experience opening for Nickelback and Staind, opening band The Fifth's wailing guitars rally fist pumps and head thrashes as raging as a riverbed full of angry bulls.
By promoting live music in the Columbus community and educating students of all ages and abilities, The Jazz Arts Group brings together thousands of professional and aspiring musicians each year to revel in the joys of jazz music. Workshops in the spring of 2011 will include an exploration of the style and impact of several timeless musicians, including Chet Baker and the Dave Brubeck Quartet in the Cool Jazz on the West Coast class. In The Birth of the Cool class, students will explore the intricacies and instrumentation of cool-jazz innovators, such as Miles Davis and his tenor-saxophone sidekick J. Edgar Hoover. The two-part Jazz and Poetry workshop will help students discover the relationship between the rhythmic styles of jazz and poetry, and then let them create their own poems to be performed while accompanied by a live jazz trio.
