It isn’t everyday that a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member comes to town. But when one as talented as Ian McLagan comes without much advance word, you have to worry if he’ll attract the sizeable audience he deserves.

Music Tonight: Tim Shelton

Singer/songwriter Tim Shelton, co-founder of the popular Bluegrass group NewFound Road, plays Newport’s Southgate House Revival tonight in the venue’s Revival Room.  Shelton’s solo career began when NewFound Road’s mandolinist decided he needed a break from the group. (Shelton was the only original member of the band at that point.) “He’d been with me for seven years, so it caught me off guard,” Shelton says in his promo bio. “But I thought about it, and literally the next day, I decided, I’m done. I didn’t want to deal with reinventing NewFound Road, I’d been wanting to do other things musically, to go other places, and so I thought, now is the time.” (NewFound Road still does occasional tour dates.) A southwestern Ohio resident, Shelton hit Ric Hordinski’s Monastery Studio in Walnut Hills this past summer to begin recording a solo effort full of material Shelton says will showcase a wider range of influence than just Bluegrass. “I just want to make music that isn’t necessarily traditional Bluegrass. I love it, but I also love James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Rock, hard Rock, traditional Country — all of those. Just music. I think that people listen to the way I sing, and they assume I must be ‘going Country,’ but that’s not the direction I’m going. The vocals sound Country because it’s me, but I’m not setting out to try to make some huge-sounding, very produced record. I want it to sound good, I want the music to be played right, but I don’t want a wall of sound — I’m not trying to make a Rascal Flatts or Jason Aldean record.” Shelton is offering a free download of his single “I Wish You Were Here” through his Facebook page here. Here’s an earlier single Shelton released this summer called “Learning How to Live Alone”: Tonight’s Southgate House Revival show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10.  Know of other good live music options for tonight in Greater Cincinnati?

The Dandy Warhols with Bonfire Beach

Did anyone believe that the decadent clan known as The Dandy Warhols would be around two decades after their formation in Portland, Ore.? Frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor will be the first to say, "No way."  

The Blasters

Family in general and brothers in particular can screw up a band like walnuts in lime Jell-O. The Kinks. The Black Crowes. Oasis. The Blasters could qualify in that spotty sweepstakes, at least to a certain extent.

Dave and Phil Alvin find 'Common Ground' in Big Bill Broonzy

0 Comments · Monday, July 21, 2014
Dave and Phil Alvin hadn't made an album together since Dave left The Blasters in the mid-’80s. But their longtime mutual love for Blues icon Big Bill Broonzy recently brought them back together for a new full-length, Common Ground.  

Superheaven (formerly Daylight) with Sheet Ghost, Chalk and Armslength

Just a few weeks ago, Daylight was out on the road with Bayside, Four Year Strong and Cincinnati’s very own Mixtapes, tearing things up good and proper and getting great notices for their efforts. Apparently, lawyers were paying particular attention, as well.    

Royal Southern Brotherhood with The Dallas Moore Band

Supergroups are problematic in that egos and talent levels tend to cancel each other out, and musical combinations that sound good in theory often implode in the execution phase. The other musical construct that can be fraught with its own particular series of pitfalls is the musician-carrying-on-the-family-name scenario. Royal Southern Brotherhood would seem to be flying in the face of a boatload of potential negatives as their lineup reflects both  situations.   

Holy Ghost Tent Revival with Wonky Tonk & The Holiday Ramblers

Seven years ago, six like-minded residents of Greensboro, N.C., assembled around the concept of wanting to channel their classic Rock & Roll influences into an acoustic Folk/Jazz/Soul stompathon. The sextet christened its newly minted aggregation Holy Ghost Tent Revival.  

Girls Guns and Glory

Girls Guns and Glory is an unusual entity in this day and age, a fairly normal band that rides the rail of the early Country music influences found in Rock & Roll. Still, they are modern in their sensibilities and are not a part of the current retro trend in roots music.  

Noah Gundersen with Armon Jay

Tuesday • Southgate House Revival

Given his raspy delivery, spare acoustic guitar accompaniment, erudite wordplay and numerous Tom Waits videos posted on his Tumblr page, it’s easy to draw a line between Seattle singer/songwriter Noah Gundersen and the world’s most famous boho troubadour. Too easy, perhaps.
