The third annual Jockey Club reunion returns to the Southgate House, again serving to get long-dormant local bands back together for at least one night. This year's headliners are Sluggo, who became a local punk rock favorite in the early '80s, and The Speed Hickeys, who haven't officially played together in 20 years.
When Michael Riley died in June from a massive stroke, it was clear his passing would leave a gaping hole in the Cincinnati scene and that his life and talents were worthy of significant tribute. His longtime professional and personal companion Tebbe Farrell has been planning that tribute for months, and it comes to fruition Saturday at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center with "Man of Music: A Tribute to Michael W. Riley."
