While still just below the radar in the U.S., Afterhours are musical icons in their homeland, routinely reaching the Top 10 on the Italian charts. A steady stream of annual stateside appearances, as well as good musical friends like former Afghan Whig Greg Dulli, have helped raised their profile.

With only a trio of Midwestern dates on this tour, the band’s Cincinnati stop is probably due in part to their affection/connection with Dulli who’s relentless promotion of the band in the U.S. included producing their last disc, Ballads for Little Hyenas, and equal turns for Agnelli and Dulli as back-up members for one other’s bands on tour. They play the Northside Tavern with The Emeralds.
