Community Festival and alternative show among things to do in Columbus this week

Community Festival — better and affectionately known as “ComFest” — has been going on in Columbus since 1972. Frank Iero has been in the alternative/punk/emo scene since 2001 with his former band, My Chemical Romance. Both will rock it in Columbus this week, along with many other things to do.
