Local Art Pop foursome gets exposure for new clip via popular music site
"Aw, hell yeah," indeed! Yesterday, the hugely popular music website Consequence of Sound debuted the brand new, incredibly entertaining music video for Culture Queer's "U Bummin' Mr. Drummond," from the band's stellar, freshly-released new album, Nightmare Band. The clip (which sadly doesn't feature a cameo from Conrad Bain) was filmed locally and directed by CQ's frontman Scott Fredette, who recently worked on a pair of excellent videos for Why? (and has worked on numerous other music videos and commercials over the years as part of local video production house Lightborne). The "Bummin'" clip features local "landmarks" and numerous friends of the band, including the "star" of the clip, Tim Willig (who, along with being a heck of a dancer, was formerly of local band Get Sweaty and his solo venture, TimProject). Nightmare Band was released Oct. 16 and the Electro Art Pop rockers will be hosting a local release party for the LP on Nov. 10 at the Hoffner Lodge (4122 Hamilton Ave., Northside). The show will be in conjunction with Fredette's Decotrora exhibit, which is part of the city-wide Fotofocus event, and will include a plethora of other activities. April Combs and Fists of Love also perform for the free, all-ages, multimedia extravaganza. Click here for more info.Preview the amazing Nightmare Band in full here.
Culture Queer hones its musical vision with its latest album, ‘Nightmare Band’

Culture Queer is all about anticipation.
In the Indie/Art Pop group’s decade-plus existence, the Cincinnati
quartet (often aided by a support staff of A/V techs, go-go dancers,
etc.) has turned out just a trio of full-length studio efforts —
including the just released Nightmare Band — an EP and a single.
And Culture Queer’s live presence has been equally sporadic; the group’s
calendar listing only pops up on approximately a quarterly basis.
