Spring is in the air and so is local music as the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens hosts Tunes & Blooms, an event featuring some of the city’s finest and most respected musical acts. The concerts are in the blooming gardens every Thursday in April. This week’s lineup features No No Knots and Walk the Moon.
NNK will be bringing their danceable Indie sound to the Zoo for a final time before going on hiatus. The band’s unique style can be attributed to conservatory training — most of the Knots’ members hail from Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music.
A single listen and one can understand why CityBeat described the Knots as “simultaneously space-aged and Classical.”
WTM's catchy Dance Pop tunes are sprouting up everywhere. The Cincinnati foursome is quickly rising as a promising city favorite. WTM was recently featured on Last Call with Cason Daly and performed at South By Southwest in Texas. The band was formed out of a love for creative Pop songs and exuberant live performances. Their Art Pop sounds like The Killers playing a Shins tribute, according to CityBeat’s Brian Baker.
Admission to Tunes & Blooms (and the Zoo) is free after 5 p.m. and music runs from 6-8:30 p.m. each week. Go here for directions and details on upcoming shows.
