As the city reluctantly says hello to the slow, drab, grey days of autumn, we say goodbye to the warmer months of music fests and outdoor anythings with one last dip in the pool. Symbiotic, which organizes arts and music shows in alternative places, will drain the swimming pool at Over-the-Rhine's Ziegler Park on Saturday for its newest installation art excursion: Six Feet Deep.
We don't often write about clubs here in Spill It, partly because the majority of bars offering live music exclusively hire cover bands and partly because, well, if we write about one, we gotta write about 'em all. But when a venue comes along and pledges dedication to the local original music scene, I'm a softy for that kind of shit. So let's hear it for Harvey's, opening in the former Blue Note space in Price Hill.
Though I'm a West-side boy myself, I never stepped foot in the hallowed halls of Price Hill Rock club The Blue Note. I now have a reason to go, even though it closed last year and, after a temporary change of ownership, closed again. Starting this week, the club is back as Harvey's. The new owners are, right off the bat, showing a dedication to the local, non-cover-band music scene with three nights of local bands.
