          The Cleveland Institute of Art is contributing to the recent film festival spirit in several ways, having founded Cleveland's first Cult Film Festival. This will feature several cult films such as the animated Sita Sings the Blues, Reefer Madness, and the Japanese film House (Hausu), all showing both Friday and Saturday night.

          Romantic relationships are a tried and true subject of many theatrical productions, but the CWRU Department of Theater's MFA program hopes to remedy this with its production of Cloud 9. The play, directed by Ron Wilson, explores relationships without gender borders, and also promises "two different eras and Queen Victoria to boot." Those interested can take a short trip down Euclid to Brooks Theatre at the Cleveland Playhouse to see just what this production is about. Additional performances will be held on Saturday, Wednesday, Thursday, and the following weekend. Time: 8 p.m. (with an additional 4 p.m. performance on Saturday). Cost: $7.50 or higher. Location: Brooks Theater. Information:

Tickets are available for reservation on the UPB website, and transportation will be provided. Time: 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost: $1. Location: Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Information:

          This Saturday, Hellogoodbye will make its way to campus for the UPB Winter Concert.

Time: Doors open at 6 p.m. Cost: $5 (Case ID required). Location: Adelbert Gym. Information:
          After Hellogoodbye, head on over to the Grog Shop for even more live music. CWRU's own Chris Black, who you may have seen on campus playing at the Spot or the Jolly Scholar, will perform. Other bands on the bill include indie acts Bethesda and Lowly, the Tree Ghost. Time: 10 p.m. Cost: $5. Location: The Grog Shop. Information: .

The band is planning on releasing a new album this summer, so this is an opportunity for fans to hear some new tunes. Time: 9 p.m. Cost: $12. Location: Beachland Ballroom. Information:
