After graduation, Jeremiah stayed in Georgia and got a job in graphic design. He moved on to start his own design business, http://c-4creative.com/ but never forgot his Evansville roots.

This piece is a combination of photography, graphic design, and digital illustration. Jeremiah snapped the photos of his favorite joints on his trips back home. The spots he couldn’t get to were shot by local photographer and childhood friend, Nathaniel Cruse.“Heavansville Eats” by Jeremiah ClaybrooksEven though Jeremiah can’t get back to Evansville as much as he likes, this collage helps remind him of all the delicious food he’s missing out on!He has agreed to allow the CCO to use his collage as the masthead for their upcoming Restaurant Review section written by Bryan Fox starting next week.

John Mayer Sits In With Leon Bridges In His Pajamas At The Greek Theatre [Video]

first_imgOn Tuesday night, neo-soul and gospel torch-bearer Leon Bridges brought his 2018 headlining tour to Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre. Following the release of his new album, Good Thing, released this past May via Columbia Records, Leon Bridges announced an extensive tour with supporting acts including Jon Batiste and Stay Human, Masego, and Khruangbin.The young artist is certainly rising to fame thanks to his gorgeous, silky voice paired with his consistently nostalgic and longing sound, and for months now, guitarist and fellow love-songwriter John Mayer has spoken up about his appreciation for Leon Bridges’ work on his own social media rants.The two artists finally crossed paths on Tuesday, September 11th, after an opening performance from Thai funk trio Khruangbin. During his headlining set, Bridges invited Mayer to join him on stage for a heart-wrenching cover of “Mrs.” from Good Thing. John Mayer, who recently wrapped up a huge summer tour with Dead & Company, arrived in his pajamas–playing off Bridges’ band to create a blues-tinged version of the song that will not soon be forgotten. Goosebumps spread across the stage as Mayer went toe-to-toe with Bridges’ guitar player, and then with Leon himself. When Mayer took his solo, at the 3:40 mark in the video below, the audience erupted. You can watch fan-shot footage of the collaboration below:Leon Bridges w/ John Mayer – “Mrs” – The Greek Theatre – Los Angeles, CA – 9/11/18[Video: Goosee9] Leon Bridges has a huge tour ahead of him this fall.

Weekend Poll Top Three: Fans Are Ready for a Wicked Movie

first_img 3. Spring Awakening — 11% Fans of the 2006 hit Broadway musical who are waiting for a big screen adaptation won’t be “left behind” for long. It was recently reported that a film adaptation of Spring Awakening is in development with Tom Hanks’ production company Playtone and director McG at the helm. However, we still have some burning questions: who will sing the song of purple summer? Will Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff reprise their roles? Will a cast of new, fresh faces emerge from obscurity into stardom? Miley Cyrus and Harry Styles? (Again, kidding.) Movie big-wigs have been making all sorts of noises about producing film adaptations of our favorite musicals lately. With so many in-the-works, we asked fans which one they are most excited about seeing on the silver screen. The results are in, and perhaps no surprise which tuner was the most popular. 2. Into the Woods— 19% You wish, and you shall receive! The film adaptation of Into the Woods is just months away, with Chicago and Nine’s Rob Marshall at the helm. The starry cast includes Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, James Corden, Lilla Crawford and Christine Baranski. We’re still awaiting some official production shots and a trailer, but with a Christmas 2014 release date, hopefully we’ll soon be able to say we “know things now!” 1. Wicked— 39% Let us be glad; let us be grateful! Fans are more than ready to see the Wicked witches ride their brooms and bubbles onto the silver screen. A film adaptation of the Broadway blockbuster is in the works, according to Stephen Schwartz, though not many details have been confirmed aside from that. The Wicked and Pippin composer teased, “we’re starting to do some work on it. We’ve actually started gearing up on it a little bit.” Well, we couldn’t be happier. Now, if only we could get Harry Styles to play Fiyero! (Relax. We’re kidding. We think?) View Commentslast_img read more
