Don’t forget to stop by the Buzzbin Art & Music Shop at 339 Cleveland Ave NW in the center of the Canton Arts District! We’ll have a couple of rappers, bunch of vinyl & new t-shirts. News Release: Don’t be surprised if you hear a hoot or a howl on Friday, October 7th when First Friday takes a bite out of the night with its evening themed Dancin’ In The Moonlight. Family friendly frights and fun will be walking the streets and, in some cases, passing out treats to those who come to dance, sing, play and enjoy the Canton Arts District. And dancing will be a ‘plenty as eight area dance groups, including the Canton Ballet, New Town Cloggers, Andrew Fullmer Dance Studio and Tribal Fusion belly dancers will take center stage throughout the evening. And, of course, Elec Simon and the drum circle will invite everyone to get up and move at the Courthouse Plaza, beginning at 7 p.m. Earlier in the evening, people will hear joyful noise as a Gospel Extravaganza featuring the Jerusalem Baptist Church Choir and five other acts, including McKenzie Mac, will sing from 6-7:30 p.m. The Zion Temple Praise Team and Passion will be at Motter & Meadows, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Other music includes Nate Sylak at Buzzbin Magazine, Joshua Beaver at the Joseph Saxton Gallery, Rylie Jobe at Anderson Creative and Matt Chambers at Second April. Art Openings include Altared States by Tom Wachunas (Second April); Beth Moon, the curator’s choice for the Canton Luminaries Contest (Joseph Saxton); The Life and Mind of Joe Cortese (ACME Artists); Disclosure in Self Portraits (Lynda Tuttle’s Art Center); and the art of Barb Drennan (MOLA). At Anderson Creative, the combined work of artist Marti Jones Dixon and filmmaker Andrew Rudd is unveiled in Blind / Sighted: The Perception Project. Buying art in one of the indoor downtown studios/galleries earns a spend-able treat from the goodie bag at the First Friday INFO TENT (by the orange giraffe), while treats of a more edible nature can be found at the Arts District restaurants, including Subway, the site for free hot chocolate. And if this doesn’t send shivers up your timbers, look around for swarms of people searching for the final clue in the Gasser Fine Jewelry Diamond Witch Hunt. The winner will be announced and the $5,000 diamond ring awarded on the main stage at 8p.m. The Canton Palace Theatre hosts Marissa Dubina, who will talk about (and show) lizards and snakes, in addition to a costume contest and a free showing of Casper, the Friendly Ghost (doors open at 6 p.m.). All this will be followed by a more adult fright with a showing of The Blair Witch Project and special tour and ghost hunt afterward. (Movie is $5; hunt/tour is $40). Download all the details, include a map, at www.cantonfirstfriday.com then come out, prepared for a howling good time on Friday, October 7: Dancin’ In The Moonlight. First Friday is presented by ArtsinStark in cooperation with the Downtown Canton Special Improvement District.
