Two laps complete. One more to go. Headlining the third and final installment of Live Loud Industries’ Rock the Boat concert series, Seven Circle Sunrise and Nashville’s Dory Drive will wrap it up tight with more music, a lot more booze and — if everything goes accordingly, man — some action in the backseat of the tour van after the show (rope lights, check; incense, check…).
Recently surviving 3,000 sun-blasted miles in a tour van strapped with guitars, drums, three Swedish Rock gods and a case of Pedialyte, Cincinnati’s token Desert Rock cosmonauts, Valley of the Sun, have returned to the motherland to unleash their debut weapon of mass destruction: The Sayings of the Seers.
Much like the self-induced punishment of Sisyphus in Greek mythology, an addict’s lifelong struggle to resist the immense weight of his compulsions is like the never-ending task of pushing a boulder uphill, knowing that the slightest misstep or falter in spirit along the way could result in a complete loss of control that ultimately subjects him to the devastating laws of nature —fundamentally those of his personal nature.
Locked and loaded for another depraved American Rock & Roll circus on the great Ohio River, local outfits Suburban Revival and Rootbound will share the stage for round two of Live Loud Industries’ Rock the Boat concert series at Riverside Marina (Dayton, Ky.)

While American civilians were preoccupied with an onslaught of fear-inducing swine flu headlines during the winter and spring of 2010, civilians of Sri Lanka were engrossed in the final chapters of a 26-year civil war that left nearly 100,000 corpses in its wake — many of which are yet to be found. A frightening percentage of the missing people were Sri Lankan journalists, specifically those who felt confident enough to publish damning information about their government’s military campaign against the separatist Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
Contrary to any implications of temperance or a mild-mannered Friday night, The Prohibitionists are commissioned to lay down their debut EP at Northside Tavern this week, providing the always-thirsty masses with a soundtrack certain to guide them down the long, rugged Trail of Beer. Featuring songs like "No Love" and "All Tied Up," The Prohibitionists' EP showcases their knack for Blues-inspired, spirit-shaking tunes embodied by the fuel that feeds every Rock & Roll fire.
Squaring off with Ohio’s $8 billion deficit, Gov. John Kasich unveiled his first budget plan March 15 that pleased supporters of tax breaks for the wealthy while causing deep concern for librarians, among many others.
Knock the dust off those inline skates and four-wheeled legends because Friday night, Disco's alive and so are you, baby. Hosted by the Over-the-Rhine Recreation Center, the Final Friday OTR Skate party offers roller-disco heroes the opportunity to rock their gold booty shorts all over the dance floor of a full-fledged, 365-person-capacity rollerskating rink on the center's lower level (who knew, right?).
