Marilyn Manson

Jan. 19 • Bogart's

1 Comments · Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Despite more than 10 years passing since the height of Marilyn Manson’s career, his music has continued to be exceptionally good. His latest album, Born Villain, is full of the same scream-laden, pain-filled AltMetal he’s always done and yet it continues to sound fresh.  

Silversun Pickups

Dec. 5 • Bogart's

 Certain bands should just be required to tour every summer and then spend the fall and winter making a new album. Bands like Silversun Pickups, for example.

Unless you’ve seen Delta Spirit before, there is no way you are fully prepared for one of its concerts. Not so much a raging, thrashing party as just a gentle, bouncing ocean of people, the crowd’s vibe at a Delta Spirit concert is transcendent, almost spiritual.   

Twenty One Pilots

Oct. 27 • Bogart's

There are a million things to love about Twenty One Pilots. I’ll give you three. First and foremost, they’re from Columbus, Ohio, which practically makes them one of our own hometown heroes

Band of Horses is back and its music is sexier than ever. The members’ beards are luscious and their button-down shirts are oh-so-tantalizing, but it’s BoH’s awesome new(ish) sound that will truly make you squirm.

Cincinnati was recently graced with Sara Watkins’ presence when she opened for Dawes in the Taft Theatre’s basement Ballroom. She’s coming back, and this time she’s the headliner.  

MPMF.12 Day 1: Fear, Loathing and Vicodin

MidPoint Night 1 through the eyes of pain-killers

{CommentsCant} · Friday, September 28, 2012
I’ve sprained my neck.* I’m taking Vicodin and Thursday night is the first night of MidPoint Music Festival. When my editor told me my review should be first-person and to “think, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” I snorted at just how closely it might come given my current intake of prescription drugs.

Let Them Clear Their Throats

Cincinnati’s Young Heirlooms have gratitude in their hearts and some stuff to get off their chests

There’s a very thin line between knowing what you want and being thankful for what you have. A few inches to one side could see you constantly unhappy with what you earn. An inch on the other side and you’re bound to never earn anything new. Cincinnati’s on-the-rise Indie Folk duo Young Heirlooms walk that line.
