WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Borgore

March 21 • Bogart's

 Honestly, if you saw the name Borgore typeset in one of those dripping entrails fonts, wouldn’t you expect a downtuned Death Metal corpsefest? Don’t let the name fool you; Borgore is one of the Dubstep scene’s leading lights. There’s no dance floor at a Borgore gig; there’s the front door and the pit. Get in it.  

Charlie Daniels Band

March 17 • Rising Star Casino

Long before Hank Williams Jr. was banned from Monday Night Football, Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift and the Dixie Chicks ticked off the entire Republican party, one musician has continually spoken out against the unfair, the unquestioned and the un-American. That man is Charlie Daniels.  

‘I’ on the Prize

Cincinnati’s The Pinstripes set the stage for their biggest year yet

It’s been three years since my introduction to The Pinstripes, interviewing the band in the cramped rehearsal space they dubbed “The Good Stuff.” We discussed their love of Ska, Reggae, Dub, Soul and all points between and beyond, as well as their recordings to that point (Higher Ground and The Decay) while downing a few lightly chilled Pabst Blue Ribbons.   

Dude, Where's My Bar?

Favorite music club not where you left it? We’re here to help.

It seems like in the past, Cincinnati had a reputation for being the kind of place you could move away from for a decade knowing that when you returned, the gas station, grocery store and drinking establishments would be there waiting for you, exactly as you left them.    

John Peel, Chris Brown and Naked Cowboy

Many of us found it unusual that Pop star Chris Brown was all over the Grammys, considering charges he beat girlfriend Rihanna on Grammys weekend in 2009. But it probably didn’t inspire bloodlust.  

Back to the Noise

The Harlequins return to their signature sound with new album

Mike Oliva and I agree — Batman is cool, but The Joker is simply badass, with his dark sense of humor and creepy, wide smile. There’s something intriguing about his slick, sarcastic ways, and, hell, there’s no forgetting that horrific laugh.    

Live Local Music Overload

0 Comments · Tuesday, February 21, 2012
This is one of those random weeks where there are so many notable events involving local bands, we could have done an all-music double issue of CityBeat and still not have room for it all. Thankfully, we do have constantly updated Staff Blogs. So here’s what’s up, lightning-round-style; check the blog throughout the week for more details.   

Ride the Wild Surf

Though serious musicians, Cincinnati new-comers make decidedly not serious music

Five surf-rockers, two go-go dancers and a guy in a gorilla suit walk into a bar … That’s either the weirdest setup for a joke ever or it means that Cincinnati’s only Surf Rock band, Doctor Bombay and the Atomic Bachelor Pad, has arrived.    

Santorum, Election Playlist, Whitney

President Obama’s “2012 Election Playlist” was posted recently on Spotify (credited to Obama and his young campaign staffers). There are songs by James Taylor and Springsteen, plus his new karaoke jam “Let’s Stay Together,” but there is a suspiciously large number of Country songs (Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker, Sugarland, Zac Brown Band).  

'Bot Rockin' Beats

If a duo can qualify as a “supergroup,” then Freekbot is a legit local music supergroup. Freekbot features Freekbass (a.k.a. bassist/singer Chris Sherman of Funk crew Freekbass) and Tobotius (a.k.a. Tobe Donohue, producer and founder of world-renowned turntable crew Animal Crackers) in an Electronic duo configuration.
