I love the audacity of Cleveland’s Brite Winter festival, the brainchild of Jimmy Harris and Emily Hornack (formerly of Case Western Reserve). On Saturday, Feb. 16, in the dead of winter, Bad Racket Recording’s Thomas Fox has booked 48 bands to play outside on six stages. And it’s all free. Here’s how they explain it:
There might be snow, there might be rain, it might be cold, it might be a blizzard, but it doesn’t really matter. This is Cleveland, and we’re going to play outside. Going on our fourth year, we’ve had more support than ever before, as our region has decided that waiting for summer to have fun is not an acceptable way to live. Sure, we’ll have to work a little bit harder for to get what we want… that’s just like us too.
