WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Flogging Molly

Monday • Bogart’s

0 Comments · Monday, February 24, 2014
Flogging Molly is returning to Bogart’s yet again, but it will be a little bit bittersweet this time. The jarringly wonderful Celtic Punk band says its current “Green 17” tour — an annual countdown to St. Patrick’s Day — will be its last. The group says it’s the 10th and final round of this specific raucous road venture.   

Empires

Sunday • MOTR Pub

0 Comments · Monday, February 24, 2014
Every show Empires has played in Cincinnati, it has been memorable. The Chicago quintet’s Queen City debut was at 2010’s MidPoint festival, which guitarist Tom Conrad recalls thusly: “I remember everyone being extremely wasted and playing really late, and walking away thinking, ‘I don’t know what this was but I’d love to come back.’”   

Marshall Crenshaw and The Bottle Rockets

Wednesday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Monday, February 24, 2014
The show occurring at Southgate House Revival Wednesday night is more than just a Roots Rock/Americana marriage made in heaven. It’s downright Rock & Roll nirvana. The Bottle Rockets, a great American band finally getting its due, opens the show and then serves as backup for Marshall Crenshaw, singer/songwriter and melodic rocker par excellence.

Bunbury Music Festival Makes Lineup Announcement

Flaming Lips, Foxy Shazam and more announced for Cincinnati music fest this summer

Last night, music fans at venues in four cities around the region (Newport, Columbus, Indianapolis and Lexington) got a sneak peek at some of the artists slated to appear at this year’s Bunbury Music Festival, which returns to Cincinnati’s riverfront parks July 11-13.  Last night, fans at the launch events tweeted out some of the lineup as it was announced (and some smart ass started a fast-spreading rumor that Vampire Weekend was playing; they are not). This morning, the lineup was released to the general public. It was previously announced that Fall Out Boy, Paramore and New Politics would be bringing their summer tour to Bunbury; those groups are scheduled to play the fest on July 12. Here are the local and national artists that will be joining them at Bunbury’s third annual event (an additional headliner will be announced soon): The Flaming LipsYoung the GiantFitz and the TantrumsVeruca SaltZZ WardHoly Ghost!CultsHeartless BastardsFoxy ShazamAndrew W.K. Robert DeLong CaspianMystery SkullsWild CubMorning ParadeKishi BashiBear HandsThe OrwellsRed Wanting BlueSnowmineSaintsenecaThe Lighthouse and the WhalerHundred WatersFly Golden EagleMeg MyersThe PassJesse ThomasJane DeckerLamps and VoidsThe MonumentFamily and FriendsJames GilmorepsychodotsMolly SullivanGoldwingKelly ThomasMotherfolkLet It HappenBlack OwlsKopecky Family BandSyd ArthurBad SunsG.Miles and the HitmenBrent James & the Vintage YouthThe Fanged RobotMarc Scibilia The Upset VictoryRoyal TeethThe BonesettersJ.

Gregory Alan Isakov with Josh Ritter

Tuesday • Taft Theatre

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 19, 2014
It seems a little early (or maybe late) for a Gregory Alan Isakov concert. His warm voice is more on par with a concert in the grass on an Indian summer evening. Still, we should be happy to have him in town whenever we can get him.  

Willie Sugarcapps with Brigitte DeMeyer

Friday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 19, 2014
For the past couple of years, the Blue Moon Farm in Silverhill, Ala., has hosted a musical genre stew dubbed The Frog Pond, a house concert comprised of whoever happens to be in the house. A few Frog Pond regulars — singer/songwriters Will Kimbrough and Grayson Capps, guitarist Corky Hughes and Folk duo Anthony Crawford and Savanna Lee (aka Sugarcane Jane) — felt a particular creative kinship at their very first impromptu gig, which morphed into Willie Sugarcapps.  

Sebadoh with Octagrape

Friday • MOTR Pub

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Last fall, Sebadoh released the comeback full-length Defend Yourself, the band’s first album in 14 years. The album recaptured some of the dizzying sonic diversity of Sebadoh’s early Sub Pop recordings, but also finds Barlow and Loewenstein’s songwriting skills as sharp as ever.   

Snoop Lion/Dogg

Friday • Bogart’s

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 19, 2014
With so much drama in the 5-1-3, it’s kinda nice hosting Snoop D-O-double-G who, somehow, some way, claims he smokes 81 blunts, like, every single day.   

Bunbury Lineup Launch with The Ready Stance, The Yugos and Heavy Hinges

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Just a few acts — including Fall Out Boy and Paramore — have been announced for this summer’s Bunbury Music Festival, but Thursday is your first chance to hear about the next round of artists via a special free “Lineup Launch” event at the Southgate House Revival, one of four regional events held on the same night.   

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. with Chad Valley

Friday • 20th Century Theater

0 Comments · Tuesday, February 11, 2014
The Detroit Electronic duo Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., which brings its counter-intuitive name and fun Quirk Groove jams to the 20th Century Theater this week, insists on keeping its music light and breezy, infectious and upbeat. EDM this is not, as the band takes more cues from 1960s Beatles-esque Pop and New Wave than Skrillex.
