Why? Performs at CAC Before Global Tour

Critically-acclaimed Cincinnati Art Pop/Hip Hop foursome plays hometown show tonight

Experimental Indie/Art Pop/Hip Hop band Why? performs its first local show since the release of the group's stellar fourth studio album, Mumps, etc., earlier this month. The band — which helped build the awesome Anticon label — plays downtown tonight at the Contemporary Arts Center for an 8 p.m., all-ages show. Tickets are $14. After tonight’s show, Why? gets back on the road for a tour that’ll take them all over the U.S., then overseas for dates in Prague, Croatia, Italy, Germany and Israel, among other countries.Here's a great music video for the Mumps track "Strawberries," filmed in Northside during the most recent 4th of July parade. The vid was directed by Scott Fredette (an accomplished video artist and also a founder of Indie Pop foursome Culture Queer) and Alex Parks. The band members also participated in a series of videos about the making of a Why? documentary by "DIY filmmaker Gerrek Reid," aka hilarious Cincinnati native and on-the-rise L.A. comedian Andre Hyland. Check the very entertaining and often hysterically funny "Documenting WHY?" web series below.UPDATE: Tonight's CAC concert is SOLD OUT.
 
 

We Go Way Back

The rich history of the Northside Fourth of July Parade

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 3, 2012
It's no secret that the Northside neighborhood throws an Independence Day party like nobody’s business. Folks flock from all over the Cincinnati area to spend some time in the city’s hub of all things hip for two full days packed with live music, local food, a family-friendly carnival and, of course, the annual Fourth of July parade. What most spectators and marchers might not know? They’re carrying on a 158-year-old tradition that dates back to the days when Central Parkway was underwater.
