The Best Altenative Acts Coming To Cleveland This December

The Best Altenative Acts Coming To Cleveland This December

A new month, means a new list of concerts!


A new month means a new list of concerts coming through Cleveland, and it doesn't look as though December is going to disappoint!

Whether you're celebrating Seaway's American vacation with Trophy Eyes or hanging out at the best Snowed In Festival we've ever had (I may be biased), the month of December has some amazing shows coming through Cleveland, and you seriously won't want to miss them!

Without further ado, here are the best shows coming to Cleveland in December!

1. Mahall's


Free Throw, Kayak Jones, Charmer, Deep Sign


The Grievance Club, Biitchseat, Drag Daze


Settle Your Scores, Nominee, Blindside Avenue, As Time Fades


CityCop, Golden God, Wallcreeper, Bare Walls

Author's Pick: This is a tough one, but I think I'd have to choose Free Throw just for the simple fact that this lineup is seriously stacked. Every band on this bill has something special to bring to the stage and you're missing out if you don't attend it.

2. The Beachland Ballroom


Seaway, Trophy Eyes, Microwave, Can't Swim, Hot Mulligan


I See Stars, the Promise Hero

Author's Pick: No offence to any bands in this article, but if you go to any show in December, it's got to be Seaway. This band is one of the best in the scene, and the lineup is truly one of the best I've seen in a long time (though I may be biased, I do love Hot Mulligan and Seaway a lot.) Please, do yourself a favor and go see Seaway.

3. The Agora


Underoath, Dance Gavin Dance, Crown The Empire, The Plot In You


Death Cab For Cutie


Knocked Loose, Knuckle Puck, Harm's Way, Hot Mulligan, Vein, Kublai Khan, Sharptooth, Belmont, Sanction

Author's Pick: This is unfair to all the band's on this list, but Snowed In's lineup is amazing (and slightly confusing) which makes it the one to go to. I mean, Knocked Loose AND Hot Mulligan AND Belmont AND Knuckle Puck on the same bill?! Somebody pinch me, I'm dreaming.

4. The Grog Shop



Author's Pick: Well....there's not really a band to go against Bayside here, and that's totally fine because Bayside is an amazing band and they're playing a full set of acoustic songs. There's sure to be some deep cuts and crowd favorites done at this show, so you definitely won't want to miss it!

Everything You Need To Know About The Fyre Festival Musical Disaster

A look at what happened in the Hulu and Netflix documentaries.


I first heard about Fyre right after it happened because a vlogger, Mark Dohner, posted it on his YouTube channel. He stated that he had considered going, but in the end, didn't. Now I haven't heard about this festival since then, so I was surprised to hear that Netflix and Hulu were both doing documentaries on this, more than a year after it happened

About two weeks ago, Netflix and Hulu almost simultaneously released different documentaries about the 2017 disaster that was Fyre Festival. For anyone who doesn't know, Fyre was supposed to be a grand music festival in Great Exuma, an island in the Bahamas, and was supposed to be the next Coachella. Tickets ran as much as a few hundred to a couple hundred thousand dollars and included food, a villa or luxury tent, and access to bands such as blink 182, G.O.O.D. Music, Major Lazer, and many more.

It took about six months to put the Fyre festival together. From the documentaries, it seemed like, in the beginning, all of their advertising was on Instagram. Pages would post the same orange photo and would either have the tag for the Frye page or it would be the promo video. The video featured various models, from Bella Hadid to Hailey Baldwin/Bieber, having a good time in the Bahamas. For people scrolling through their Instagram pages, seeing all of these orange posts and videos of what the festival was supposed to look and be like, of course, they sold out. Not only did they sell out, but they also sold more tickets than they had room.

During this time, they didn't have an island to hold the festival, because they were told to not have the festival on the original island from the promo video, didn't have enough villas to hold people, and had to build everything from scratch. In the Hulu documentary, it was touched on that this should have taken a year to a year and a half to do, but the festival was less than six months away. When it came time for the festival, it was a disaster. The luxury tents were old hurricane relief tents, there were no music acts, there wasn't much of anything. In the end, almost no one was paid for their work, and even the employees working at the festival weren't correctly paid.


While both of the documentaries are on the same topic, they're both slightly different. Hulu gave more of an overview and an interview Billy McFarland, the main man in charge, whereas Netflix seemed more in depth leading up to and the aftermath of the festival, as well as interviews with more people who took part of putting the festival together, including the residents of Great Exumas who helped. I thought it was interesting to hear about the festival from Billy's perspective, although it seemed like he was mostly defending himself. Both documentaries touched on how Billy continuously lied to his staff and investors about money. I liked the Netflix one slightly more, but they were both well done.
