Bosco Makes You Feel All Right

A tribute to a lost family member and all of the gifts he gave

{CommentsCant} · Wednesday, February 5, 2014
A few weeks ago, I was headed downstairs with a basket of laundry and when I got to our kitchen doorway, I automatically raised my right leg to clear the baby gate.

The Many EPs of WolfCryer

Cincinnati Folk singer/songwriter Matt Baumann goes on a prolific release spree with much more music coming soon

{CommentsCant} · Thursday, January 23, 2014
Five years ago, Matt Baumann was exploring the fringes of avant garde Jazz and creating sparse Ambient soundscapes with nothing more than his alto/tenor saxophones (he occasionally duoed with friends Eric Barnett and Jim Feist, but largely worked on his own) and a vision of crafting a quietly powerful body of work.

Thursday • Madison Theater

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
There is one absolute rule in Keller Williams’ world: There are no rules. Using the Grateful Dead’s improbable diversity as a jumping-off point, Williams has created an astonishingly broad catalog over the past two decades, tossing every conceivable genre spice in his musical gumbo.
