The quartet known as SHADOWRAPTR has made a great name for itself. Granted, it’s an inexplicable-yet-wonderful kind of name. Heck, that could also be said about their music, too.SHADOWRAPTR, as a wh

Rock & Roll? Booze? Sexy people? Do any of these tempt you to leave that nasty apartment of yours? Northside Tavern (4163 Hamilton Ave.) is hosting its third annual Northside Music Festival, which means shit is about to get nasty in the best kind of way.

There's always been a certain appeal to flea markets: local smells, questionable meat by-products and absurd deals on forgotten pop-culture memorabilia. An excursion to Trader's World or Turtle Creek isn't necessary this weekend, as The City Flea brings local traders the opportunity to share their wares.

"Why not?" That's what you should be asking yourself when presented with the opportunity to fling fish in Fountain Square. The city of Cincinnati isn't really known as a fishing spot, but who cares?

Expect droves of local and visiting vendors peddling their impeccably fashionable indie crafts. According to Crafty Supermarket co-founder Grace Dobush's book, Crafty Superstar, indie crafts generally require "the visual contradiction of combining granny craft techniques with punk sensibilities."

What better way to spend a Wednesday evening than surrounding yourself with drunken Cincinnati yuppies? Party in the Park has returned once again to promote mediocre bands to overly intoxicated crowds, right next to the mighty (likely irradiated) Ohio River. Thirty one years — that's how long Party in the Park has kept it up. Musical headliner Forehead will kick off this season's festivities.

Shake It Records has a treat for you Saturday — quite a few of them, actually. On top of the borderline-"Hoarders" amount of music they have available for sale, they’ve also arranged a meet-and-greet, Q&A session with a certain Talib Kweli. Maybe you've heard of him. Whether or not he’s performing really depends on Kweli's schedule, but as Darren Blase, co-owner of Shake It says, "The fact that he's showing up is pretty awesome."
