The Jellybricks’ song is ‘coolest’ in the world

The song “Rock ’n’ Roll Suicide” from “Suckers,” the most-recent EP from The Jellybricks, won the “Coolest Song in the World of 2012” contest on The Underground Garage, the syndicated radio show by Steven Van Zandt.

The Harrisburg, Pa.-based Jellybricks are fronted by singer-guitarist Larry Kennedy, a Boardman native.

Van Zandt picked the song in March for his weekly contest. His radio show airs at 10 p.m. Sundays in Youngstown on WNCD-93 FM.

The winner was selected by online fan voting.

Exhibition of paintings is on display at the Hoyt

NEW CASTLE, Pa.

The paintings of Delaware artist Catherine Drabkin will be on display in the Blair Walkway Gallery of the Hoyt Center for the Arts through March 1.

The paintings were inspired by what the artist calls her fascination with the expanding spaces of landscape and the intimate nature of interior spaces.

Through the use of bold colors, Drabkin attempts to capture a luminous effect, which suggests a human presence.

The Hoyt is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. For information, go to hoytartcenter.org.
