WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

John Cowan with John McFee and Friends

Saturday • Miami University Hamilton’s Parrish Auditorium

Cowan has always had one of the most powerful voices in the business, one not only capable of singing Progressive Roots music but also able to bring dynamic Rock vocals to the microphone as well.  

Jad Fair and Danielson with Darlene

Wednesday • MOTR Pub

Jad Fair and Danielson have just released a terrific album, Solid Gold Heart, full of strong melodies and a Rock & Roll enthusiasm that is as ageless as Fair himself.  

Eric Johnson

Tuesday • Ballroom at the Taft Theatre

Coming on the scene in the late ’80s/early ’90s as a new guitar hot shot, Eric Johnson lit up the frets and the music world with a Grammy Award win for his original instrumental, “Cliffs of Dover,” in 1991. Though a multi-instrumentalist of the highest order, he is mostly known for his fluid guitar pyrotechnics.  

The Iguanas

Friday • Southgate House Revival

These days, it’s an accomplishment to find something that lasts 25 months, let alone 25 years. And yet The Iguanas are still making vital music and crisscrossing the country to present it in its most elementally satisfying live fashion, a quarter century after the band’s formation in New Orleans.   

The Casket Girls with Dreamend

Sunday • MOTR Pub

The original derivation of a casket (or casquette) girl referred to an early 18th century female who had been repatriated from France to the French colonial South in order to marry; “casket” referred to the small chest that held their belongings.  

Cheers Elephant with The Ready Stance

Thursday • MOTR Pub

Cheers Elephant is a blatantly hook-laden AltPop band that brings a sense of humor and 1960s-era verve to their sound. With reverb-a-plenty and blue-sky harmony vocals, the up-tempo band keeps its big beats front and center.   

Lucius with Sara Bareilles

Tuesday • PNC Pavilion at Riverbend

Like Tegan & Sara (with whom they’ve toured), Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Brooklyn Indie Pop band Lucius wrap their vocals around each other, both in harmony and unison, with the impressive precision of two vocalists who’ve sung together their entire lives.   

Royal Blood with Valley of the Sun

Saturday • Ballroom at the Taft Theatre

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 22, 2014
What if they threw a band party and only the rhythm section showed up? That’s the oddly conceived question that has been answered by vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher, doing business as the Garage/Psych/Blues duo Royal Blood.   

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah with Public, Dream Tiger and Danny & His Fantasy

Friday • Fountain Square

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 22, 2014
It hardly seems possible that a decade has gone by since the original formation of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, although given the band’s current status, there’s an argument to be made that the quintet didn’t actually make it to the 10-year mark.   

Richard Buckner

Wednesday • MOTR Pub

Richard Buckner’s obscurity is partly due to the fickle music business, but also due to his decidedly different approach to songwriting and performance.
