Bunburied Alive … and Lovin' It

Reflections on the final day of the inaugural Bunbury Music Festival

{CommentsCant} · Monday, July 16, 2012
I’ve been to more festivals than I care to recall, but they mostly pale in comparison to Bunbury’s inaugural weekend. The planners of the three-day Cincinnati festival scored awesome bands for a first-year festival and the location couldn’t have been more spectacular, stretching from Sawyer Point to Yeatman's Cove along the riverfront.

Bonnaroo sucks because there are hardly any trees...

There isn’t much about Cleveland that Cincinnatians will admit to liking — it’s a bitter rivalry we just can’t move past. Cleveland did, however, offer us one very good reason to love them.Raised in Cleveland, singer-songwriter Joshua Radin quickly rose to success with his soft-spoken lyrics and acoustic guitar.

Falling in Love at Bunbury

A love/hate relationship with music festivals skewers to the love side at Bunbury

{CommentsCant} · Sunday, July 15, 2012
I hate festivals. I hate that they’re always at the peak of a heat wave or in the middle of a tornado warning. I hate that 90 percent of festival goers don’t understand the concept of deodorant. I hate the rushing around to multiple stages and the trying to decide who you like best when two awesome bands are both playing at 6 p.m  I hate that my friends hate festivals, too, and always ref...

Bunbury Sleeper: The Silent Comedy

{CommentsCant} · Wednesday, July 11, 2012
The inaugural Bunbury Music Festival — three days of top-shelf Alternative music at Cincinnati's riverfront Sawyer Point Park — is just two days away. All this week, CityBeat's music blog will be featuring samples from some of our "sleeper picks" for the fest, artists who some may not be as familiar with as they are Weezer or Death Cab for Cutie or Jane's Addiction.

Music Tonight: Trevor Hall

Up-and-coming Pop/Reggae singer/songwriter plays Ballroom at the Taft

{CommentsCant} · Thursday, July 5, 2012
South Carolina’s Trevor Hall doesn’t make the kind of music you might expect to come from a native of the American south. Instead, Hall’s music has a Reggae streak, similar to the kind of tunes he may have heard growing up in the beach community of Hilton Head or later at the arts school he attended in California.If you like Jack Johnson and Colbie Caillat and enjoy grooving to Bob Marley on...

 South Carolina’s Trevor Hall doesn’t make the kind of music you might expect to come from a native of the American South. Instead, Hall’s music has a Reggae streak, the kind of tunes he may have heard growing up in the beach community of Hilton Head or later at the arts school he attended in California. If you like Jack Johnson and Colbie Caillat and enjoy grooving to Bob Marley on occasion, Hall’s releases would fit nicely in your collection.
  

Spirit Song Festival

Spirit Song Festival is once again taking over Kings Island. The three-day features two dozen of Christian music’s most famous artists. The lineup includes the likes of Switchfoot, TobyMac, Owl City, Third Day and NEEDTOBREATHE, as well as Cincinnati’s very own Mosteller. With such a mixed and well-known lineup, Spirit Song is might well draw its largest audience yet.

Review: Dawes at Ballroom at the Taft

{CommentsCant} · Friday, June 8, 2012
Oh, Cincinnatians! Wednesday night, when you filed into the Ballroom at the Taft (Theatre), loudly and drunkenly declaring your love for Dawes, I knew I’d never been more proud of you in all my life. (Except you, Guy Who Tried to Vomit Back into His Beer Can like a sorority girl MacGyver. Know your limits, dude.) You filled the basement with your singing and your cheers and, whether you saw it o...

Music Tonight: The Avett Brothers in Kettering

{CommentsCant} · Thursday, June 7, 2012
Remember a few years ago when you couldn’t walk into a Starbucks without hearing the words, “Three words that became hard to say/I and love and you?” At the time, you probably rolled your eyes at yet another attempt to reel in hipsters from their local coffee shops.

However, the man whimpering those words was Scott Avett and his band, The Avett Brothers, ended up becoming … kind of...

At least twice recently, Rolling Stone has referred to someone’s sound as “Laurel Canyon.” If you were born after the late ’70s and don’t have a soft spot for Neil Young and his friends, you
