  • The Rock and Rock Hall of Fame’s 17th annual American Masters will be a weeklong celebration of Chuck Berry, the first artist to be inducted into the rock hall. “Roll Over Beethoven: The Life and Music of Chuck Berry,” running Oct. 22-27, will feature performances, interview programs and films.
    The big finale will be a Berry tribute concert on Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the State Theatre in Playhouse Square Center. Already scheduled to perform are Ernie Isley, Darryl McDaniels, Joe Bonamassa, David Johansen, Lemmy Kilmeister, Rosie Flores, J.D. McPherson, Chuck Prophet, Bucky Pissarelli, Duke Robillard, Earl Slick and M. Ward.
    Additional guests will be announced soon. Tickets will go on sale at 11 a.m. Wednesday at www.playhousesquare.org, and (216) 241-6000.
    Looking for something, um, unusual (and free) to do tonight?
    If so, head to the Buzzbin Art & Music Shop at 339 Cleveland Ave. NW in Canton for an out-of-this world party hosted by imaginative visual artist Bili Kribbs and electropunk artist Elias & the Error. All ages are invited, admission is free, and the fun begins at 7.
    Space Holiday, as it is called, will feature original paintings, prints, toys and more from Kribbs, live music by Elias and Brain, performances by the Ananda Center Dancers, 3-D Twister, classic sci-fi films and a candy and junk-food buffet. There will be a contest for the best space-themed costumes.
    A new feature at the 46th annual Ohio Mart, happening Oct. 4-7 at Akron’s Stan Hywet Hall && Gardens, will be a garage sale of sorts, of items owned by the Stan Hywet estate.
    “Stan Hywet is cleaning out its closets in the Manor House,” said Jennifer Ferone, director of collections. “It's an accumulation of many items not associated with the Seiberling legacy that can no longer be kept in storage. Selling these items will free up space, allowing us to open up additional rooms for specialty tours."
    Items for sale include antique furniture, decorative vintage items, textiles and other curious finds. Like Ohio Mart, all proceeds from the sale benefit the hall. For full Ohio Mart details, visit www.stanhywet.org.
     On Sept. 22 from 2-6 p.m., a self-guided tour of Massillon, titled Out and About, will offer people the opportunity to visit places normally inaccessible to the public.
    People may visit the new state-of-the-arts collections storage facility on the third floor of the Massillon Museum; take a rare walk through the community mausoleum at Massillon Cemetery; stroll through McKinley Hall, once part of the Massillon State Hospital Campus; get a view of the football field from the east press box at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium; and view century-old Russell steam engines at the Hydro Dyne factory building. At each stop, historians will be available to talk with visitors.
    Page 2 of 2 - Tickets will be available starting at 2 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Massillon Area Chamber of Commerce at 137 Lincoln Way E. For more details about the tour, contact Margy Vogt at 330-832-8469 or vogt@sssnet.com.
