A King Records' Record Broken

Thanks to Paul Grein, who writes the "Chart Watch" blog for Yahoo, we now know that one of legendary Cincinnati-based King Records' impressive chart-topping records has been toppled. James Brown's King release Pure Dynamite! Live at the Royal was the last mono-only release to make Billboard magazine's Top 10 until John Mellencamp's new No Better Than This, which recently hit No. 10 in its first week of release.

WOXY Still Loves Cincinnati Music

Though Internet radio juggernaut WOXY.com has moved to Austin, Tex. — and now has a weekly Local Lixx show focused on the station’ current “local music scene” — programmers haven’t turned their backs on the area of the country that gave the station its start. The first Local Lixx program broadcast from WOXY out of Austin will be like the original show, featuring all Cincinnati/Dayton area artists (as well as some Ky. ones).

Bootsy on TV with The Roots TONIGHT

One of the best things about Jimmy Fallon’s late night show is when house band The Roots performs with a special guest sitting in throughout the program, especially when the guest is seemingly from a different musical universe (like Metal guitar god Yngwie Malmsteen). But, given his bottom-end work on classic Funk tracks (and, thanks to sampling, Hip Hop ones, too), locally-bred music legend Bootsy Collins should fit right in when he sits in with The Roots tonight on Late Night (airing at 12:37 a.m. on WLWT Channel 5 locally).

WATCH: Walk the Moon Covers Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Cincy RCA recording artists release first clip from MTV Unplugged sessions

Cincinnati's Walk the Moon has been doing the promo rounds hardcore for a while now, performing on network TV shows like the Late Show and Late Night, and touring the planet to ever-increasing crowds. The band tweeted photos about a month ago from its sessions for an episode of MTV Unplugged, the long-running acoustic series on the now-music-deficient network.

Today, Walk the Moon announced that the episode will premiere this coming Monday (Aug. 6) on MTV.com. The band also revealed the first clip from the episode — an a cappella version of "Maps" by popular AltRock trio the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Enjoy.

Bunbury Announces Three Acts for 2014

Huge Cincinnati summer music fest reveals a trio of performers for this year’s event

This morning, the annual Bunbury Music Festival, coming up July 11-13 and returning to Sawyer Point/Yeatman’s Cove along the Ohio River, announced the first acts for this summer’s event. Fall Out Boy, which won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Alternative Band last night, will be joined at the fest by consistent Pop/Rock hit makers Paramore (who were up against FOB for that People’s Choice Award and are doing a co-headlining tour with the band this summer, something that leaked early, allegedly angering Paramore) and up-and-coming Danish alt-rockers New Politics (also on the FOB/Paramore jaunt). 



The full lineup for the Bunbury Music Festival is scheduled to be announced next month. Tickets are on sale now; below are details:

One-day, Any-day: $55.00 (U.S.) Buy on layaway until January 31, 2014
Three-day: $130.00 (U.S.) Buy on layaway until January 31, 2014
Three-day VIP: $325 (U.S.) Buy on layaway until January 31, 2014
Hotel and Ticket Package: Buy one three-day, get one free. Book now
Please note that ticket prices will increase after February 15 and again after July 1.

Also this morning, it was announced that The Afghan Whigs, one of the best musical exports to ever come out of Cincinnati, are returning to the road in 2014 to play (at least) the Coachella festival in California this summer. (The full Coachella lineup, which was released this morning and includes Arcade Fire, OutKast and The Replacements, can be found here.) Sounds like a good fit for this year’s Bunbury lineup, too.
