Music & Performing Arts
In the Short North Arts District, live music and performances are two types of art not to be missed.
Local bands play weekly shows in businesses and busk on the sidewalk during Gallery Hop, and a revived theatrical presence lights up historic District stages. Enjoy live jazz with a drink, or catch a wild show starring the city’s favorite drag queens (and kings!) in a District bar, business, or club. Download a map of the gallery and art guide. Navigate the galleries and the art of the Short North in person using the Short North Arts District Art Trail.
