Steelism

Thursday • Madison Theater

David Bowie and Neil Young will reinvent themselves at the drop of a press release and without the slightest provocation, but Tab Benoit is as reliable as the sun and just as warm and welcome.  

Shamble On

Cincinnati’s The Whiskey Shambles aged in the barrel for years before tapping into their top-shelf Blues

The Whiskey Shambles’ membership seems like the set-up to an elaborate shaggy dog joke.

Stuart MacKenzie isn’t kidding when he confesses a certain lack of business acumen.

Badboxes frontman Harrison Wargo has dubbed the sound of his Electronic trio “Northern Pop,” and that’s a fairly descriptive tag.   

The Head and the Heart

Friday • Taft Theatre

While not quite a critical darling, The Head and the Heart has used its organic formation and deeply felt belief in its songs and each other to attract a large, intensely loyal and well-deserved fan base.

Equal parts fun and fierce, the Indie Pop sextet PHOX delivers the exact sound required for properly shaking off the way-too-early cold weather we’ve been experiencing.

Buggs Tha Rocka Releases Masterful Album for Free

Cincinnati Hip Hop artist unleashes Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet online today

One of Cincinnati finest Hip Hop artists, Buggs Tha Rocka, is making his new album, Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet, available for free starting today on various outlets across the internet (it’s already generated fairly widespread buzz, including write-ups from the U.K. and France). Buggs recently spoke with CityBeat’s Brian Baker (who called the new LP a “masterpiece”) about the new release (which features guest spots from Donte from MOOD, Moxy Monster, Tanya Morgan, Aida Chakra and Cool Kids’ Chuck Inglish among others) and his progress in the Hip Hop world.  “The type of Hip Hop I do has always focused on technicality and emotion,” Buggs said. “I take pride in being a wordsmith. That’s where the ‘American poet’ came from. And ‘scattered thoughts’ is really what it is. It’s everything I’ve been through, things I’m seeing in the news, a little bit of everything. My ups, my downs, my life in one CD. Instead of putting on a facade and an image, it’s really organic and natural.”You can read Baker’s full interview with Buggs here. Buggs is hosting an intimate release party/performance this Friday at Over-the-Rhine club Maudie’s. Showtime is 9 p.m., admission is $7 ($5 in advance here) and Buggs will be joined by MOOD’s Donte (and probably other guests?) at the show. Buggs has unveiled several videos (made in conjunction with Alvin Jordan and others) for various tracks from the album leading up to the release. Here’s a clip for “Angel of Death” featuring Piakhan: Buggs tha Rocka ft Piakhan - Angel of Death (Concept Video) from Buggs Tha Rocka on Vimeo. Here’s the clip for “Bad Habits”: Buggs Tha Rocka - Bad Habits (Official Music Video) from Buggs Tha Rocka on Vimeo. Here’s Buggs and Pappadon in the clip for “OuterXSpaceXLove”: OuterXSpaceXLove Feat. Pappadon from Buggs Tha Rocka on Vimeo. Here’s “Rapture” featuring Phoenix Aphrodite: Rapture feat. Phoenix Aphrodite from Buggs Tha Rocka on Vimeo. This is the clip for “My$tery”: Buggs Tha Rocka | MY$TERY from Buggs Tha Rocka on Vimeo.

Johnny Campbell was born into a family of fiddlers. So naturally, he started his music career as a …  rhythm guitarist?
