The 2013 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards ceremony/party late last month at Covington’s Madison Theater was filmed on high-quality video, and this Saturday, for the first time in the 16-year history of the CEAs, fans who want to relive the performances and presentations (or those who missed it altogether) will have a chance to watch the show on television. The show includes the short but very sweet live sets from Bad Veins’ Ben Davis, The Dopamines, Gold Shoes, Ricky Nye, Jess Lamb and Culture Queer, as well as an all-star presentation of songs from the Come Play the Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams at Herzog EP put together by the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation. 

Saturday at 9 p.m., thanks to the Intercommunity Cable Regulatory Commission, the full show will be aired on ICRC TV, available in select communities in the Cincinnati area via Time Warner Cable channel 4. The show will be rebroadcast on the same channel Monday at 8:30 p.m., March 1 at 10 p.m. and March 2 at noon. For those in Cincinnati proper, you can watch the CEAs on Time Warner channel 24 on Feb. 27 and on March 6 at 9 a.m. A Northern Kentucky broadcast is also in the works, as is the ability to watch the program online. Stay tuned to the music blog at citybeat.com for the latest updates. 

If those air times don’t work for you, you can also purchase a copy on DVD. Simply email melissa@icrctv.com to inquire about delivery and pricing. (Program reference number is 16534.) To relive the ceremony in photos and words, click the “Music” tab at citybeat.com and scroll to the top selection (“CEAs”).

New Releases From DAAP Girls, Revenge Piñata

Cincinnati rockers DAAP Girls — who scored the trophy for “New Artist of the Year” at January’s Cincinnati Entertainment Awards — are releasing their superb debut album, Tape Songs, this Saturday. The $5 cover charge for the release show at The Drinkery (1150 Main St., Over-the-Rhine) will also net you a free copy of the album … in the form of some chic bling! 

While I haven’t been able to confirm it, I do believe the format the DAAP Girls (featuring members of Newport Secret Six and The Lions Rampant) are using for the release is a first. The album — a superb mix of vintage Rock & Roll grit, crack-like Pop melodies and a relentless groove — is being sold as a “slap bracelet,” wrap-around jewelry with Tape Songs’ cover imagery and a download code. 

The show also includes a great opening lineup — The Dopamines and Archers Paradox.

• Slanted, progressive rockers Revenge Piñata will drop its latest 10-song “adventure rock” release, Neon Eyes, this Saturday via grasshopperjuice.com (the web home of the band’s label). Full of engaging, unique textures and melodies, plus some crafty, unpredictable song structuring, Neon Eyes was produced locally at the Shepherd’s Pie recording facility by SP’s Chris Schmidt and RP’s Nick Mitchell. 

You can also grab a copy of the new release on Saturday as the band celebrates the LP with a free show at Northside Tavern with special guests SHADOWRAPTR, Black Pharaoh and Sometimes. (revengepinata.com)
