The Grog Shop is turning 29 years old this month and we’re thrilled to announce a great lineup of shows to celebrate their anniversary weekend! Check out the upcoming lineup below to join the festivities.
Big Freedia has brought bounce music to the world. She got her start as a choir director and subsequently worked multiple jobs, including one as an event decorator, while touring non-stop to eventually get her music recognized. All the hard work clearly paid off. Since then, Freedia has collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the world, has starred in her own reality show, Big Freedia Bounces Back, and wrote a critically-acclaimed autobiography, God Save The Queen Diva.
Though Freedia's voice has been featured on huge pop tracks like Beyoncé's "Formation" and Drake's "Nice for What," in conversation, she emphasizes that her top priority is representing the New Orleans community and bringing its fast-paced, energetic hip-hop that originated there to billboards, awards shows, and radio channels across the world.

This is a stacked bill with 4 great rock bands all hailing from NE Ohio:
Actual Form (Akron) - Prog-Punk
The Missed (Cleveland) - Garage-Punk Trio
Kill the Hippies (Kent) - Gritty-Punk
Slug Fest (Cleveland) - Spazzy Garage-Psych
There is NO COVER for this show so, come out and celebrate the Grog Shop and Ohio rock with us.
“Hobocore” crust punk band, The Goddamn Gallows, will be on the Grog Shop stage on Saturday the 25th. Their mix of punk, bluegrass, psychobilly, and metal and a live show chock full of impromptu antics is enough to energize any crowd. Joining The Goddamn Gallows that evening is Public Squares and Hawkbaby.
Rounding out our anniversary weekend is alternative hip hop artist and influencer, Theopilus London on Sunday the 26th. He will be rolling through the Grog Shop as part of his “Bebey, It’s Never Too Late” tour, in support of his most recent album. Joining him that evening are Cleveland’s own DJ Eso, Unknownphrazes, and Jung Speedbat.
