EarthQuaker Devices is bringing their ‘Experience Station’ to The Cleveland Rocks Shop. We will have several pedals for you to try out. There will be a guitar, bass, keyboard, and microphone available to connect with the pedals, or bring your own to hook up and listen to the effects. Try the Astral Destiny, Disaster Transport SR, Acapulco Gold, The Bellows, and more! Plus, one lucky guest is going to win a free pedal (new release – yet to be announced!) to take home. Stay for The 2×4 Songwriter Showcase immediately after the pedal experience workshop.

Lingua is Dan Bode vocals and harmonica and Rick Kodramaz on bass. We have performed since 1997 in bars, coffee shops, art galleries, bookstores, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and Cinemateque playing spoken word, songs, and soundtracks to silent films. The “soundscapes” we create are highly improvised. Reaching for new sounds has brought us to a deeper understanding of pedals, effects, and synthesizers, and how they can enhance tension and emotional impact in performance.
No stranger to writing music and performing live; David Novak returns to the stage as “DA.” The name DA means “this” in ancient hebrew. I think it describes in simplest terms my music and the experience I’m offering audiences. DA is about storytelling, being in the moment, and the way music brings people together. That experience should be somewhat indescribable. The listener is encouraged to consider what “this” means to them. Stylistically, my original music touches on sensitive folk, dissonant art rock, and squalling noise rock. David’s work in music has had a meaningful impact in North East Ohio, and he shares special connections with many of our areas most accomplished musicians. He has been a music teacher, a club owner, he has produced acts, toured the U.S., showcased at The Viper Room in Hollywood California, and worked with producer Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn of Blur/Gorillaz). “I love making music because even with basic elemental forms, people can still feel music and be drawn to it. DA is an intention, and is just as much about the live experience as it is the music.”
