Columbus’ premiere independent arts collective is hosting two can’t-miss events this weekend: The C-Note Art Sale and Available Light Theater’s first local showing of Killadelphia.

The schedules work together perfectly so that you can get deals on art and a little healthy, organic local theater all in one night out.

Start at C-Note. There’s a preview sale Friday night, an all-day show on Saturday and even a scavenger sale Sunday afternoon. Over 300 artists will show more than 650 pieces at one unbelievable price: $100.  Some of these pieces normally sell for as much as $1,000. The preview show does have a cover charge of $15 (other events are free), but if you’re a serious shopper, it’s worth it. The very best buys go fast at C-Note.

Then watch Killadelphia. Playwright and actor Sean Christopher Lewis is in Columbus for one week only to perform this show. It’s a 60-minute, “one-man mixtape” that NYTheater.com described as “an epic, must-see evening of theatre.”  Here’s the story: In the Summer of 2008, it was said that Philadelphia had “more bodies than days.” The city was in the midst of a murder epidemic that put it on par with some third world countries. Determined to take an unflinching look at the causes of the crime rate and its effect on the community, Lewis introduces us to the inmates of Graterford Prison – men employed to beautify the city even as they serve out life sentences.

The show runs at 7 and 9 on Friday and Saturday nights and there’s a 2PM matinee on Sunday. Tickets are pay what you want at the door. If you want to reserve a seat in advance, you can do that online for $20. (Some nights of Available Light’s last show did sell out.)

Want more? If tradition holds, my favorite treat vendors will be on hand: Raddog with his gourmet meatless hotdogs and Pattycake Bakery with their yummy vegan sweets.

If you’ve never been to Junctionview, this is a great weekend to check it out. It’s right in Grandview – just off Northwest Avenue. There’s parking in front and in back of the building as well as across the street.
