The group proswastika.org wants to reclaim the symbol from its legacy of Nazi hate for the peace symbol it still serves as in Asian cultures, so it flew a swastika banner over the Coney Island beach in New York on Saturday. The display didn’t track well with New Yorkers, not surprisingly. WORLD -1  

Ten Don’t-Miss Bunbury Music Festival Acts

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 8, 2014
This year’s Bunbury Music Festival lineup is a virtual stacked deck of amazing artists, from the top of the marquee all the way down to the fine-print talent at the bottom of the poster. This year’s topliners — Empire of the Sun, Fall Out Boy, Paramore, Young the Giant, Flaming Lips — are guaranteed to draw huge crowds to the Main Stage, and the local-and-beyond lineup, including Foxy Shazam, Black Owls, Jane Decker, psychodots, Kim Taylor, Heartless Bastards, Austin Livingood and many more, are sure bets to attract hardcore fans and curious newbies, but there are plenty of undercard acts and little known nearly top-of-the-bill names that could prove to be serious highlights in Bunbury’s burgeoning scrapbook.

Going, Going, Gonzo

Without a label for the first time in nearly a decade, Cincinnati’s Foxy Shazam drops its most ambitious album

Last fall, a Foxy Shazam interview was convened at bassist Daisy Caplan’s Northside home for the purpose of discussing the band’s tour-ending, two-show extravaganza in Cincinnati — a full production at Bogart’s in Corryville, and an intimate club date at Northside’s Mayday.   

Attack of the Killer B’s

Local entrepreneur Bill Donabedian follows up his Bunbury Music Festival with the new Buckle Up fest

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 8, 2014
If you saw Bill Donabedian’s weary face in the waning hours of the last day of the first Bunbury Music Festival in 2012, you might have correctly discerned that the promotional genius who conceived the event was a) bone-tired from the months of preparation and the constant on-site troubleshooting involved in the three-day Indie/Alt concert series presented along the Sawyer Point/Serpentine Wall stretch of Cincinnati’s riverfront, and b) going to do it all over again the following year.

Bunbury Music Festival Makes Lineup Announcement

Flaming Lips, Foxy Shazam and more announced for Cincinnati music fest this summer

Last night, music fans at venues in four cities around the region (Newport, Columbus, Indianapolis and Lexington) got a sneak peek at some of the artists slated to appear at this year’s Bunbury Music Festival, which returns to Cincinnati’s riverfront parks July 11-13.  Last night, fans at the launch events tweeted out some of the lineup as it was announced (and some smart ass started a fast-spreading rumor that Vampire Weekend was playing; they are not). This morning, the lineup was released to the general public. It was previously announced that Fall Out Boy, Paramore and New Politics would be bringing their summer tour to Bunbury; those groups are scheduled to play the fest on July 12. Here are the local and national artists that will be joining them at Bunbury’s third annual event (an additional headliner will be announced soon): The Flaming LipsYoung the GiantFitz and the TantrumsVeruca SaltZZ WardHoly Ghost!CultsHeartless BastardsFoxy ShazamAndrew W.K. Robert DeLong CaspianMystery SkullsWild CubMorning ParadeKishi BashiBear HandsThe OrwellsRed Wanting BlueSnowmineSaintsenecaThe Lighthouse and the WhalerHundred WatersFly Golden EagleMeg MyersThe PassJesse ThomasJane DeckerLamps and VoidsThe MonumentFamily and FriendsJames GilmorepsychodotsMolly SullivanGoldwingKelly ThomasMotherfolkLet It HappenBlack OwlsKopecky Family BandSyd ArthurBad SunsG.Miles and the HitmenBrent James & the Vintage YouthThe Fanged RobotMarc Scibilia The Upset VictoryRoyal TeethThe BonesettersJ.

First Artists for Buckle Up Music Festival Debut Announced

Bunbury Music Festival’s offshoot Country fest set for July 18-20

Word has been trickling out over the past few weeks about a new Country music festival in Cincinnati, organized by Bunbury Music Festival founder Bill Donabedian. Today, the first four artists slated to appear at the inaugural Buckle Up Music Festival were announced. The festival is set for the weekend after Bunbury — July 18-20 — and will use the same grounds at Sawyer Point/Yeatman’s Cove along the Ohio River. (Think of it as Bunbury’s version of Coachella’s Stagecoach fest.)The lineup will feature “upwards of 80 performers” and include both modern, commercial Country acts and variations on the Country theme — “folk, bluegrass, Americana, roots rock and more,” according to the press materials — something the initial lineup announcement reflects.Legendary Country act Alabama (which for many years used the controversial Confederate Flag in its artwork, years before Kanye decided to reclaim it) and current Country hitmakers the Eli Young Band will be joined by up-and-comers J.T. Hodges (whose music has been described as “Country Soul with some Rock N’ Roll”) and eclectic Brooklyn-based Americana trio The Lone Bellow, which performed last November at Cincinnati’s 20th Century Theater (read CityBeat’s preview here).Tickets for Buckle Up are on sale now here. Area artists interested in performing at the festival need to submit by Jan. 30 here. More Buckle Up lineup announcements are expected in the coming weeks.

Go to the Movies with The Hiders

Local band performs a special show with artist Anthony Luensman tonight at The Esquire

Transcendent, rootsy local band The Hiders are going to the movies tonight — and you are more than welcome to join them. The group will be performing at Clifton’s Esquire Theatre for a special concert that will feature visual accompaniment by acclaimed Cincinnati artist Anthony Luensman (or, as he's being dubbed this evening, "Visual Structuralist"). Check out some of Anthony's stunning work here.There should be an interesting "midnight movie" kinda vibe, with the show beginning at 11 p.m. and being promoted as "a surreal night of live music and imagery." Admission to "Art at the Art House: The Hiders at The Esquire" is just $3 and a cash bar will be available for drinkers. Visit thehiders.com for more on the group and click here for more on tonight's performance. The Hiders are scheduled to appear at the Bunbury Music Festival next month; if you're already making your itinerary, be sure to catch the group on the fest's final day (July 14) at 5:45 p.m. Here's a great music video (directed by Anthony Francis Moorman) for the song "Under Shooting Stars," which can be found on The Hiders' latest, greatest LP, Temenos.
