The Heights Music Festival Starts Tonight!

Bi-annual fest kicks off in Clifton Heights and introduces new "Day Fest" tomorrow

The first ever edition of The Heights Music Festival kicks off this evening in five Clifton Heights venues at 7 p.m. (While it's the first fest under that name, the bi-annual event has been going for the past seven years.) Once again, the lineup is a great mix of genres and a strong representation of some of the city's best new and established acts. Click here or here for a full schedule. (It was recently revealed that The Pinstripes have been added as special guests Saturday night at 11 p.m. at Rohs Street Cafe.)Tomorrow afternoon, the event launches its first "Day Fest," with several acts performing at the venues in the afternoon, allowing those unable to get into the bars due to age a chance to enjoy all the fun (events at Rohs Street Cafe and Roxx Electrocafe are open to all ages, all the time). Music starts at 3 p.m.Online sales for Friday and Saturday (as well as two-day passes) have ended, but you can still grab Day Fest-only tickets online here. Head to the fest tonight if you didn't get advanced tickets and you can purchase one-day, all-venue passes for $8 (or $12 for both days). Day Fest passes are just $5 in advance or at the fest.Here's a sweet, massive video playlist compiled by the Heights Fest organizers featuring most of the participating artists.And here's some more audio goodness from several of the bands, via The Heights Radio on Soundcloud.
 
 

Cincinnati vs. The World

A woman fell asleep at the wheel and ran into Baba Budan’s Bearcat Café early Monday morning in Clifton Heights. Nobody was injured, but the storefront now matches its battered neighbor, Jerusalem Café, which suffered an explosion last November. The ghost of West McMillan at Clifton Avenue strikes again. CINCINNATI -2   

Hip Hop (Un)Scene: Smells Like Scene Spirit

When artists don't reach outside their safety zones, music stagnates

Why are local scenes so split? Not to say there aren't people who venture to other scenes in the city, but the majority stays put in their comfort zone. I could make this point for most music scenes in the city, but I'll stick to Hip Hop since that's what the column's title tells me this is about.
