Due to the cancellation of so many regularly scheduled events in Columbus – with more coming in every hour – we’re focusing this week’s edition of Fun10Columbus on fun entertainment you can enjoy in the safety of your own home or while practicing safe ‘social distancing’ while the state begins to open back up.
So what’s on the FUN10 for this week? Read on …
MadLab’s Blackjack Short Video Festival
MadLab dealt the cards:
Unable to produce live shows, including their annual Theatre Roulette short play festival, MadLab challenged independent filmmakers to produce short films for us during quarantine. No rules, except to follow state-mandated social distancing guidelines and keep it to 3 minutes or less.
And these are the ones who played their hand so very well. The Blackjack Short Video Festival is here.
Send a small donation here: http://madlab.net/covid-19-relief.html and we will send you a link to check out this great collection of shorts from some of your MadLab favorites and more!!

Angela Perley Live at Natalie’s
Looking for some live music this weekend?
Angela Perley will perform live at Natalie’s (945 King Ave Columbus) this Saturday Jun 20 from 8 – 10 p.m.
Angela Perley has been gigging nonstop with her band The Howlin’ Moons since they released their debut album in 2014, laying down an interesting mix of folk, Americana, and ’60s-tinged psychedelic rock that floats seamlessly between Bob Dylan and Procol Harum, sometimes within the same song.”— No Depression
All of this led up to Perley’s latest LP, ‘4:30’ (released Aug. 2, 2019), her first solo effort which she co-produced with longtime guitarist and collaborator, Chris Connor. Her third full-length record illustrates the songwriter’s knack for deft storytelling, warm vocal layers, and disarming melodies that beget personal growth and mobility, surging from raw and far-sighted pathos.
Billboard says, “The set’s 12 songs run the gamut from psychedelic garage rock to melodic pop and heartfelt country and Americana” and Perley’s character-driven love songs on ‘4:30’ are surreal in their ability to master genre-fluidity, with forthright storytelling, wry lyricism, and a host of dreamy instrumentation.
Perley has opened for Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Tyler Childers, CAAMP, O.A.R and Blues Traveler, and continues her musical journey one record and show at a time.
