Kick off the
weekend with us as we present our New Music Showcase at Bogart’s. The bands
nominated for CEA New Artist of the Year will each perform tonight and audience
members will get to vote for their favorite. The lineup: Heavy
The Natives (8:30-9 p.m.), Public (9:15-9:45 p.m.), Jeremy Pinnell and the 55's (10-10:30 p.m.), DAAP Girls
(10:45-11:15 p.m.) and Ohio Knife (11:30 p.m.-midnight). Nominee
R. Ring was unable to perform. The total votes will be weighted by votes
from the CEA nominating committee to determine the ultimate winner. The winning
band will get a show at Bogart’s and a live recording session at Ultrasuede
Studio and will be announced at the CEAs Sunday, Jan. 27. Be a part of a
fantastic night in local music — tickets and more info here.
A stone’s throw
away, at University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), the
school is hosting its annual Moveable Feast fundraiser Friday. The event, which
is sold-out, features a sampling of all the major talent from different CCM
departments. Guests will enjoy dinner by the bite and drinks throughout CCM and
include: musical theatre, dance, drama, opera, choral music, preparatory
department, chamber music, wind symphony, piano, backstage tours and lighting
If you didn’t get
tickets to Moveable Feast but are looking to indulge in a vast array of the
arts this weekend, check out Performance and Time Arts, Friday and Saturday.
Entertainment includes puppetry,
poetry, dance, drama and more at Contemporary Dance Theater’s studios at
College Hill Town Hall. The event begins at 8 p.m. each night; tickets are $15,
$12 for students and seniors.
Arnold’s Bar and
Grill has been a Cincinnati institution since 1861,
and has always been big supporters of local beer, music, food and causes. So it’s no
surprise that Saturday Arnold’s presents Local Local Local 4, a celebration of
all things — you guessed it — local. Live music from Cincy Brass starts at 9
p.m.; master distillers and owners/CEOs of local breweries will be on hand with
swag and endless info on your favorite area brews and booze; a mini craft
market will feature local artists; and the menu will be full of beer-infused
bites and dessert specialties from Madisono’s, Bonbonerrie and
Take the Cake. It all starts at 8 p.m.
Winter Family Days
