Great homegrown songwriting on display tonight for free on Fountain Square
Tonight's free MidPoint Indie Summer concert on Fountain Square has an element of contemporary local music heritage … and lots of ear-grabbing melody. The show is being headlined by psychodots, one of the most popular (and locally influential) original bands to ever call Cincinnati home. Check the Pop/Rock trio's website here and a clip of the ’dots performing at Redsfest in 2006 below:Cari Clara, the long-running project of Eric Diedrichs — who now lives in Lexington, Ky., but fronted Cincy Pop/Rock faves The Simpletons in the ’00s — plays the middle slot.

Between bodies, equipment and ephemera,
we’re packed tightly into The Ready Stance’s rehearsal space, possibly a
converted coal cellar in the basement of guitarist/vocalist Wes Pence’s
beautiful old Newport home.

New local band The Ready Stance makes its debut appearance Saturday at the Northside Tavern. The free show also includes performances by Goose and Wussy's Chuck Cleaver. Local music fans who have been following the scene since before Facebook and MP3s will likely recognize at least a couple of familiar faces in The Ready Stance's rank.

Chris Sherman (aka Freekbass) and his Funk band (aka Freekbass) maintain one of the most consistent touring schedules of any band based in Cincinnati. Soon, Freekbass (the man, not the band) will be getting a lot busier, especially if his new "all star" group takes off. His new trio (With DJ Logic and Steve Molitz) gets its official debut Saturday here in Cincinnati.
