We're thrilled use our June 12th show to raise money for the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, whose mission is to support survivors of rape and sexual abuse, promote healing and prevention, and advocate for social change.

This month's audience-suggested theme is "Your Mother" - what is it about mothers that brings out such strong feelings in us? We all have mothers, or are mothers, or know mothers. What does it mean to be a mother? To have a mother? 

Our talented featured performers are:
Crooked River Comedy co-founder Patrick French
Forest City Brewery co-owner Jay Demagall
...and, you! 

We have three open mic slots so you can share your story! Open mic sign up starts at 7PM and open micers are given 8 minutes (1300 words) in which to tell their true tales. If more than 3 people sign up we'll draw names for the slots.

Entrance is free, and this evening's suggested $10 donation will both help keep our show running AND support the critically important work done by the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center. Forest City Brewery will serve small bites and delicious craft beer during the show!

The Swingos Celebrity Inn Documentary

Hosted by Emerge Microcinema

The film will be followed by a Q&A with the director, producers, and special guests.

ABOUT THE FILM:
The wild times of the 1970s and 80s Rock and Roll landmark Swingos Celebrity Inn of Cleveland, Ohio is chronicled in this documentary from its genesis in 1967 to its closing in 1985. Interviews with the original owner, rock stars like Michael Stanley and Southside Johnny, and Cleveland heroes like Big Chuck and Lil' Jon work together to chronicle the story of a restaurant and hotel that grew into a national sensation in downtown Cleveland at the same time as the city was falling to pieces. The river was burning, the theaters were closing, and the crime rate was climbing all while the WMMS radio station, rock critic Jane Scott, Scene Magazine, the Agora Music Hall, and Swingos created a burgeoning music scene that became the compass for Rock and Roll in the U.S.

TICKETS:
$8 advance (tickets available at emergemicrocinema.com)
$10 door

TIME:
The film starts at 8pm. The Brewery is open at 4pm.
