If you don't buy your soon-to-be married friends the original manuscript for Richard Wagner’s “wedding march," do you really care about them?

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 9, 2015
While MidPoint has consistently stayed true to its vision of spotlighting new and innovative music, certain things about the festival have changed over the years, often inevitably.

Getting Around MPMF

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 9, 2015
Thanks to the ongoing streetcar project, there is still a bit of road construction going on this MidPoint season downtown and in Over-the-Rhine. But don’t be discouraged — most of the routes around MidPoint’s territory are still pretty easy to navigate. Especially because MidPoint is a totally walkable and very bike-friendly festival.

Dierks Bentley reached the upper echelon of Country-music fame by not always doing the expected

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 2, 2015
Riser, the latest album from Dierks Bentley, is being lauded for its collection of mid-tempo tunes and ballads that finds the Country singer digging deeper emotionally than ever before — a direction inspired largely by the death of his father two years ago and the recent birth of his first son.

They recorded two brilliant albums in the early ’80s, broke up in 1986 and reunited in 2010, resulting in three exceptional albums — 2011’s Savage Kings (on Cincinnati’s Shake It label), 2013’s acclaimed Dig Thy Savage Soul and their latest, Under the Savage Sky (both on Bloodshot Records).
