The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum gets into the spirit of Northeast Ohio mania with motorcycles when it hosts the Better Bolder Biker Bash from to 10 p.m. tomorrow. The event includes a concert by Ted Nugent (a.k.a. the Motor City Madman) at 8:30 p.m. Cleveland's Burnt River Band opens at 7 p.m. The event will take place rain or shine. For more information, call 216-781-7625.
Besides the music, WNCX 98.5 FM will have a free drawing for a brand new VRSCD Night Rod motorcycle, valued at $15,000. There will be dedicated motorcycle parking adjacent to the Museum.
Spanning nearly four decades, Nugent is best known in the music world for his energetic stage presence and such classic rock staples as "Cat Scratch Fever," "Stranglehold" and "Great White Buffalo." During the past decade, he's become known more for his pro-gun advocacy and conservative viewpoints as well as a hunting and grilling book.
In 2008, he's released a new CD and DVD ("Sweden Rocks"), book ("Ted, White & Blue: The Nugent Manifesto"), and has a role in the film "Beer for My Horses." On Independence Day he played his 6,000th show in his hometown of Detroit. For more information, call 216-781-7625.
Also, the Rock Hall's Summer Film Series unspools its final reels. Featuring the films of Murray Lerner, the final showing takes place at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Fourth Floor Theater.
A screening of Lerner's "Message to Love: The Isle of Wight Festival" documents one of the most significant events in rock and roll history. The two-hour film highlights performances by the Who, Joan Baez, Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, Free, the Moody Blues, Ten Years After and Jethro Tull as well as the last stage performance of Jim Morrison with the Doors and by Jimi Hendrix - 18 days before his death.
