0 Comments · Wednesday, September 16, 2009
In honor of our Cool Issue and fall preview, we wanted to take a look at some local-music-centric things.

This month offers plenty of opportunities to ring in fall the good old-fashioned Pagan way by feasting on the harvest and communing with friends and neighbors.

Let’s stop being a town of shoulda, woulda, coulda. With Cincinnati City Councilwoman Leslie Ghiz’s announcement May 19 that she no longer supports the city’s streetcar initiative, she joins Republican colleague Chris Monzel, who never liked the idea from the beginning. And that stinks.   

'The Music Should Speak for Itself'

Female musicians discuss gender, Rock & Roll and the local music scene

We’ve all seen the bumper sticker: a simplistic drawing of a baby chicken above the words “Chicks Rock.” Well, that statement couldn’t be truer in the case of Lisa Walker and Margaret Darling, the female faces behind local bands Wussy and The Seedy Seeds, respectively.
