MidPoint Indie Summer with The Ridges and More

Athens, Ohio Indie Folk troupe unveils "commerical" for free Friday Fountain Square show

Tomorrow evening on Fountain Square will be dry! I promise, or I'll personally refund your ticket money. This week's installment of the free MidPoint Indie Summer concert series on the Square features another solid bill. Joining in on the fun Friday is rootsy Indie Rock crew and Bloodshot recording artists Ha Ha Tonka, the eclectic Izzy and the Catastrophics (read more here) and our pals from great Athens, Ohio-born Indie Chamber Folk group, The Ridges. The Ridges (MPMF vets) usually add a great personal touch to their area gigs by making cool little commercials for the event (which we've featured several times in the past). Tomorrow's show is no different. Check their latest "ad" and then click here to listen to more tunes from The Ridges. Friday's MidPoint Indie Summer show starts at 7 p.m. Here's a taste of Ha Ha Tonka, via the music video for the group's "Lonely Fortunes" from last year's Death of a Decade.And here's a wild video from Izzy and Co. for the song "Mi Bailarina."

Squeeze the Day for 10/5

Music Tonight: Brooklyn's Izzy and the Catastrophics swing back through Cincy after a successful appearance last month during the MidPoint Music Festival. Here's how our Brian Baker described the band in our MPMF preview issue: "If Izzy & the Catastrophics were just a marginal band, they’d get bumped up a notch simply by virtue of the fact that they had the good sense to hire unmatched trombone blower and (former member of local Ska/Reggae band The Pinstripes) Chapman Sowash. Oh, but Izzy & the Catastrophics are so much more than marginal; if they’d been the dance band on the Titanic, they’d have blown that iceberg into bar cubes for drinks on the lido deck. Izzy is the perfect frenetic frontman, like Weird Al Yankovich without the flimsy jokes, and the Catastrophics swing so perfectly that Cab Calloway’s heavenly grin is brighter than Sirius on a clear night." The band performs at Over-the-Rhine's MOTR Pub at 10 p.m. The show is free. Below, dig a clip for the band's track "If You Knew."
