Play It Forward was set up to "assist Greater Cincinnati musicians and their families in times of catastrophic need," offering financial support to artists, many of whom have no health insurance. Sunday's show features excellent local Pop Rock bands Chaselounge and Giant Wow as well as a special appearance by pioneering '80s Electro/Synth Pop group Perfect Jewish Couple.
It's a big weekend on the local music scene, as four bands hold album release parties to celebrate new work: Giant Wow (Southgate House Parlour), Sparrow Bellows (Stockyard Cafe), Tickled Pink (Sidebar) and The Minor Leagues (Mayday, formerly Gypsy Hut).
Molly Malone's in Covington presents a benefit show Friday for local Irish Folk/Rock performer Roger Drawdy and his family. A month ago, Drawdy's home burned down and the family lost everything but the clothes on their backs, a couple of guitars and a child's car seat.
