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.
Progress in Columbus Commons, former spot of City Center Mall, Cols. OH. It’s quite beautiful at sunset; the new perk of looking straight on out to High St. from the spot on Town St. where Jacobson’s used to be is pretty fab.
Get your butts downtown, folks…it’s going to take the efforts of Columbus residents to make this the vibrant spot it wants to be…and deserves to be.
