On Friday October 2, the full Pekar Project “band” + special extended-Pekarverse guests “genuine nerd” Toby Radloff and “piece of work” Michael Malice assembled in Cleveland for the launch of the Pekar Project exhibition at The Pennello Gallery and to toast Harvey’s 70th birthday (October 8). Brian Heater of The Daily Crosshatch shows and tells all with aplomb in his recap of that that evening, as well as the next day’s Harvey-guided Cleveland tour. Below is one of many videos shot by Bryan. This one follows Harvey into his favorite grocery store. “Jalapeno cheesebread; this is very good,” says Harvey telling us how a pepperoni-infused loaf killed his vegetarianism. I’d say more about this veritable Pekarpalooza weekend, but Brian already does that so well here.
