About The Event

Third Thursdays at Transformer Station events feature a mix of live local music and conversation with artists curated and hosted by Ideastream Public Media radio personalities. Each event engages a different show host with a band, highlighting the diversity of Northeast Ohio’s music scene and bringing Ideastream’s beloved music programs to the public. These events are free, but a ticket is required. 

This evening’s program is hosted by Ideastream Public Media’s Dan Polletta (host of JazzNEO), who leads an in-depth interview with Northeast Ohio–based bassist Aidan Plank. Aidan regularly performs with the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra and Pulse Quartet, but he formed a new group specifically for tonight’s event. More information about Aidan can be found on his website and on Ideastream’s Spotify playlist.

This event is being recorded for Ideastream’s Shuffle podcast—Northeast Ohio’s backstage pass to the region’s independent music scene.
