It’s almost Labor Day, and here in Cincinnati that only means one thing: Riverfest featuring the WEBN (and now Western & Southern-branded) fireworks, the ultimate way to celebrate the end of summer.

Music: Dierks Bentley

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.  

Music: 7 Seconds

Given the fact that 7 Seconds has been around for the past 35 years, the Hardcore/Pop/Punk quartet might not be on the radar of younger fans. It’s the safest bet that 7 Seconds — anchored from the start by the Marvelli brothers, aka vocalist Kevin Seconds and bassist Steve Youth — was a major influence on a significant chunk of those younger fans’ music collection.  

Music: Lily & Madeleine

Lily & Madeleine might be considered Indianapolis’ answer to Over the Rhine. Though there is an obvious age and experience difference  — Lily & Madeleine were just teenage sisters when their first records, the EP Weight of the Globe and a self-titled album, came out in 2013 — there is striking similarity in other ways.  

Music: Della Mae

The Grammy-nominated band Della Mae is a wonderful example of an all-female group that is not a novelty, but instead is made up of wonderful musicians who bring the thunder as far as instrumental prowess goes while still creating music that is progressive, beautiful and unique.   

Music: Jane Decker

Jane Decker is just barely into official adulthood, but she’s lived a virtual lifetime of experiences, both personally and professionally.  

Art: Unkown Elements

In art, as in life, context is key. An image that would otherwise be treated with contempt — or worse, blithe indifference — can be illuminated with only a few facts. Likewise, stripped of its context, a piece of art can become something else entirely as the viewer imagines a contextual framework for the art.   

Onstage: 9 to 5

Cincinnati Landmark Productions (CLP) has hit a home run with the debut of the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater this summer. I’m sorry to say that the summer’s final offering doesn’t measure up to its predecessors.  

Onstage: The Complete Tom: 4. Detective

Event: ArtWorks Big Pitch

Cincinnati is becoming a city of creative powerhouses, and ArtWorks, the nonprofit dedicated to empowering the creative community — you’ve most likely seen their city-wide murals — wants to help Cincinnati’s artistic entrepreneurs take their ideas to the next level.  

Music: Scott Miller & The Commonwealth

When artists are said to have “returned to their roots,” it usually refers to them rediscovering their old acoustic guitar or returning to the music that was in their childhood record collections.
