• Brooklyn Indie Folk quartet Jus Post Bellum comes to Over-the-Rhine's MOTR Pub tonight for a free, 10 p.m. show with local headliners Young Heirlooms. Inspired by traditional American Roots, Blues and Country music, as well as modern Folk, the Civil War and American history in general, Jus Post Bellum (latin for "justice after war") features the captivating dual vocal approach of guitarist/keyboardist Geoffrey Wilson and Hannah Jensen and is fleshed out by the bass and cello of Daniel Dieber and drumming of Zach Dunham. The group's live shows are said to be quiet, mesmerizing affairs, so maybe keep your loudmouth drunkard friends at home for the night.
Jus Post Bellum's second album, Oh July, is set for a Nov. 12 release. Here is the new album track "Gimme That Gun":
