WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

The Blasters

Sunday • Southgate House Revival

Family in general and brothers in particular can screw up a band like walnuts in lime Jell-O. The Kinks. The Black Crowes. Oasis. The Blasters could qualify in that spotty sweepstakes, at least to a certain extent.  

Mad Anthony Doesn't Wane

Cincinnati rockers Mad Anthony celebrate their first release since last summer's near-fatal van accident, Sank for Days. Plus, the Thompson House in Newport offers live music before and after the Labor Day fireworks show on the river and prices for  three-day passes to the MidPoint Music Festival increase Tuesday.  

We Built This Old City

Piece by piece, Old City has come together to become one of Cincinnati’s sonic powerhouses

0 Comments · Tuesday, August 19, 2014
After issuing a trio of EPs since 2012 — originally on old school cassettes — and a live album back in January, the current incarnation of Cincinnati’s Old City concluded it was time for a proper full-length release.   

Nashville Pussy with Fifth on the Floor

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 13, 2014
There can’t be too many people in Rock’s vast audience who are scratching their heads and wondering why Nashville Pussy isn’t a household name. For those who may be baffled by Nashville Pussy’s lack of hot-and-cold-running-champagne success, allow me to paraphrase James Carville: It’s the Pussy, stupid.   

Making Big Daddy Proud

Cedric Burnside carries on a family tradition of Mississippi Hill Country Blues

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Cedric Burnside learned how to play the Blues at the side of his legendary grandfather, R.L. Burnside. Since then, Cedric has gone on to win four Blues Music Awards for Best Instrumentalist: Drummer, including this year. His current band is the Cedric Burnside Project, featuring guitarist Trent Ayers. The duo’s latest album is Hear Me When I Say.   

United Nations with Frameworks

Tuesday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 6, 2014
At first blush, United Nations is a thrilling, adrenalized Punk band with the sonic markers that define the genre — political lyrics that range from personal to global; double-clutched drumming; riffs that careen wildly from oddly melodic to lethally brutal; vocals that run the gamut from singing in a normal register to shrieking like a panther caught in a leg trap to the guttural growl of a Babylonian misery demon.   

The Iguanas

Friday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 29, 2014
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.   

Billy Joe Shaver

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Even the Outlaw Country community considers Billy Joe Shaver to be an outlaw. The Texas native learned to play guitar at 11 and dropped out of school in the eighth grade to pick cotton but returned sporadically to play sports. After a Navy hitch, Shaver married Brenda Tindell in 1960; she divorced him six years later when he pursued a songwriting career (they subsequently remarried, divorced and remarried).   

Will Kimbrough with Brigitte DeMeyer

Saturday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 9, 2014
Will Kimbrough is one of those multi-talented artists that nearly anyone could build a band around, a diverse musician who has devoted his life to his craft since an early age.   

Braid with Pity Sex and Signals Midwest

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 9, 2014
Somehow, it seems we’ve ripped the pages out of 21 calendars since Braid roared out of Champaign, Ill., with a Post Punk/Emo sound that deftly combined dissonance and melodicism, thundering heaviness and lightning heat, stuttering time signatures and straightforward riffage.
