Editor's picks: 26 things to do this weekend in Columbus
Columbus' concert season is heating up. This weekend in particular offers too many options to fit into a single weekend. Thursday kicked off the weekend's packed schedule with Lil Wayne, Curren$y, Lightning Bolt/Metz, Matt & Kim, Guster and the Vijay Iyer Trio. The options only gets more difficult to choose between from there. As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.
Go to Clintonville's (much, much, much smaller) version of Gallery Hop and try not to fall in the Indianola Stroll and Amy Turn Sharp's poetry, which will be on display in various forms at Alison Rose.
Crew SC finally returns home from what feels like a three-year exile, whether from road games or by-weeks. Coming to the newly christened Mapfre Stadium is Brazilian legend Kaka and his merry band of purple lions (?!). If nothing else, this'll be the most colorful game of the year, but my money's on an exciting, end-to-end match with Crew SC pressing to more firmly establish home-field advantage while Kaka, Brek Shea and Co. look to consistently counter-attack.
Art and literature have been dominated by the male perspective for centuries, to the point where people were incredulous when Sarah Lightman insisted there was a rich, vibrant history of confessional comics by Jewish women. So Lightman set about casting a light on the work of those silenced and unheard voices, and thus, a book and traveling exhibition was born, the latter of which comes to the Billy Ireland Sunday. Lightman will also speak and lead a Q&A with other Jewish women comics creators.
