May 20: One-Woman Band Uno Lady & Cartoon Music Sextet Play Ohio City House Concert

Cool Cleveland – “The Mechanic Street house concerts, held in the living room of Ohio City residents Joel Elvery and Lynn Phares generally feature Americana/roots-style artists from around the country, looking for intimate settings to play while on tour.

This week they’ll be hosting a pair of local artists they believe people ought to hear.

Christa Ebert aka Uno Lady constructs her intriguing earworms of tunes using by mixing and looping her own voice, adding layer after layer to create a billowing cloud of ethereal sound. She’s been developing her act for a decade, and won Cuyahoga Arts and Culture’s Creative Workforce Fellowship for her unusual approach to pop music.

By contrast to Ebert’s one-woman show, Powerhouse 5 features six noted Cleveland jazz musicians who will somehow shoehorn themselves into the living room to perform the music of Raymond Scott who composed classic cartoon music in the ’40s and ’50s and was a major influence on the entire genre with his offbeat, lighthearted compositions.

It’s a $20 suggested donation, all of which goes to the artists. To make a reserve and learn the exact location, email mechanicstreetmusic@yahoo.com. doors open at 6:30, music starts at 7pm.”
