Your Weekend To Do List: 11/9-11/11

Tattoos and body art have been a part of various cultures for thousands of years. The concept came to the States in the late 19th century, when ink could be found on soldiers and people living on the fringe of society. Today, the medium’s popularity makes it more difficult to find people without any tattoos. While we’ve all witnessed unfortunate ink, the real pros exhibit amazing talent. Ink is now a celebrated art form (and, oddly, the basis of several TV shows) and tonight, fans of both visual art and tattoos have a chance to meet legendary tattoo artist and historian Lyle Tuttle. Beelistic Tattoo on Short Vine welcomes Tuttle for an art show of his iconic work. Tuttle began tattooing at age 18 in 1949 and has inked the likes of Janis Joplin, The Allman Brothers, Paul Stanley and countless others. Meet the artist, peruse his work, enjoy free drinks and plan your next tat from 5-10 p.m. This past summer’s World Choir Games brought a whirlwind of music and visitors from across the globe to our back yard. Cincinnati’s own MUSE women’s choir was awarded a gold medal at the Games and tonight the group makes its first public appearance since that award-winning performance. “Keep Yo’ Lamps Burnin” features African-American traditional songs and spirituals to be performed at various venues Friday-Sunday. Go here for the full schedule and ticket information. This weekend, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra welcomes Louis Langrée for his first concert as Music Director Designate. The French conductor is also Chief Conductor of the Camerata Salzburg and the music director of the Mostly Mozart Festival in New York. The concert (11 a.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday) is, fittingly, an all-French program featuring César Franck’s Symphony in D minor, Olivier Messiaen’s Les Offrandes Oubliées and Camille Saint-Saëns’s Piano Concerto No. 2. For tickets and more information, go here. The Heights Music Festival brings more than 40 area acts to the UC area Friday and Saturday. The Frankl Project, The Guitars, Oui Si Yes and lots more local talent will fill Rohs Street Café (all ages), Baba Budan’s, Mac’s Pizza Pub and Christy’s Biergarten. Single-night tickets are $5 in advance/$8 at the door; full weekend passes are $10/$12. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to break out your Goodwill’ed tweed suit, you’re in luck! Sounding like something straight out of Portlandia, The City of Cincinnati Bike Program is organizing an old-school Tweed Ride Saturday. Grab your wool skirts, wax your handlebar mustache and dust off your newsboy cap for a dapper ride about town. Riders should meet at O’Bryonville’s Owls Next Park at 2 p.m. for the 8-mile, slow-paced flat ride. The Moerlein Lager House is ready to kick off the holiday season Saturday with a Beer and Breweriana Extravaganza noon-4 p.m. In what they’re calling “one part holiday beer tasting and one part Antiques Roadshow,” guests can sip seasonal brews while getting free appraisals on beer memorabilia and steins. Authors Mike Morgan and Don Tolzmann will be on hand to sign their Cincinnati brewing books and Jim Effler will sell his beer label artwork and posters. Stick around for lunch and dinner to enjoy a full Cincy-centric day. Check out our calendar for a full list of theater shows, art exhibits, events, concerts and more to do this weekend and beyond.

Music Tonight: The greatest Metal band to ever come out of Athens, Ohio, Skeletonwitch, performs at the Southgate House in Newport in support of its latest internationally-released album, Forever Abomination (well, Japan doesn't get it until next week), on Death/Doom/Hardcore Metal label Prosthetic Records, home to releases by All That Remains, The Acacia Strain and Testament.  Check out two cuts from the new release below, as well as the video for "Submit to the Suffering" off of the group's previous album, Breathing the Fire.

Having your likeness used as the basis for an American icon like the Barbie doll could be taken a few ways. On one level, it could be a compliment on your style and its effect on popular culture. But if your ability to effect popular culture is relatively nonexistent, then maybe it could be taken as an insult to your style.  

Singing With the World

China trip helps local vocal ensemble prepare for 2012 World Choir Games in Cincinnati

After Cincinnati nabbed the 2012 World Choir Games last June, It was only natural to turn to Dr. Catherine Roma, a passionate advocate for building community through choral singing. In March, she began recruiting singers from her choirs for SingCinnati. Singers had to have schedules flexible enough to fit in a demanding rehearsal schedule and nine days in China.  

The Women in the Mirror

A first-hand account of MUSE's visit to an area women's prison

I am on a bus with 46 other members of MUSE, Cincinnati's Women's Choir, and we're headed for prison: the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville. We're singing for the inmates, and a current of unease runs underneath the animated chatter.  

Muse, Hugh Cornwell, Gordon Gano & The Ryans, The Dynamites and Charles Walker

The death of Patrick Swayze and the cartoonishly rude antics of Kanye West at the MTV awards will dominate the news for days to come and are likely to overwhelm any attention that might have been rightly paid to the passing last Friday of poet/author/Punk frontman Jim Carroll. A fitting salute would be to seek out a copy of 'The Basketball Diaries' and read his journal kept as a teenager whom Jack Kerouac once called "better than 89 percent of the novelists working today."
