This guy. I did a little “SQUEE!” on Twitter when I found out Michael McDonald would be playing a free show at Columbus Commons on May 24th (7pm). Conjuring replies such as “nerd”, “yah mo be there” and “he’s a polarizing artist”, you can’t deny two things: 1, the presence of a pop culture icon and 2, free show. The performance marks the grand opening of the Columbus Bicentennial Pavillion, which, in my mind joins the ranks of the “World’s Tiniest Suspension Bridge”* on Lane Avenue, as one of many local landmarks that seem to be the architectural equivalent of a fancy wool sweater run through a dryer on high. I kid, I kid…the stage is a fantastic addition to the Commons. See you there!
*I credit the farcical bridge moniker to an ex-boyfriend’s roommate.
