WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Lucy Wainwright Roche with Cheryl Wheeler

Thursday • The Redmoor

If my family should ever disown me and I’m forced to find a new one, I would start by begging Loudon Wainwright III to adopt me. Talent seems to spew from his every orifice and I want a piece of it. He already gave his envy-worthy genes to three incredibly talented musicians — Rufus and Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche. Roche, in my estimate, got the lion’s share of that talent, though.  

The Suicide Machines with Break Anchor, Bastardous, Derek Grant and Loudmouth

Thursday • Thompson House

In the Ska/Punk canon, no titan stands mightier than 1989’s Energy, the only album from Operation Ivy. But in 1996, Detroit outfit The Suicide Machines came close to matching that shooting star’s power and prowess with their first album, Destruction By Definition.  

Cory Branan with Tim Easton

Wednesday • Taft Theater (Ballroom)

As invigoratingly honest Americana continues to blossom amid the musical banalities of Modern Country like a desert rose, it brings with it a new phenomenon: the “No-Hit Wonder,” those troubadours whose grittily propulsive, slyly smart songs just can’t get commercial Country airplay. It is to them that Cory Branan has dedicated the title song of his latest album, The No-Hit Wonder.  

Guster with Kishi Bashi

Wednesday • Bogart’s

It hardly seems possible that next year marks the 25th anniversary of the meeting of guitarists Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner and percussionist Brian Rosenworcel, freshmen at Tufts University who turned their dorm room songwriting hobby into a quarter century of Alt Rock/Folk Pop wonder as Guster.   

A City That Sings

The Cincinnati Men's Chorus boasts a fun concert, serious chops and a GLBT-supportive mission

Take a chance on the Cincinnati Men’s Chorus this week — they’re presenting ExtrABBAganza, a show devoted to the campy ’70s and early ’80s classics of Swedish Pop group ABBA.  

Midlife Crisis

Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra turns 40 amid fiscal and leadership challenges

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 28, 2014
The Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra concludes its 40th season on June 1 amid symptoms of classic midlife crisis. There’s no equivalent of a red Porsche, but there are serious concerns about the organization’s viability and how it might reinvent itself in a continually uncertain marketplace.

The Utley Truth

Cincinnati’s Mark Utley releases his second solo effort, Bulletville, and resurrects Magnolia Mountain

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Prolific singer/songwriter Mark Utley has released a single album’s worth of songs. And that’s all. Bulletville, Utley’s excellent sophomore solo album, is not a double-set on a single CD or accompanied by a new release from his band Magnolia Mountain or another musical vessel for the songs that pour endlessly from his head, heart and hands.  

Prophet, Sharing

The collaborative-minded Chuck Prophet’s latest, Night Surfer, is one of the best albums of his storied career

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Chuck Prophet is making some of the best music of his career. Jangly, unique and rocking, Prophet’s jams should be reaching a bigger audience. But fickleness and modern tastes don’t always coincide with true creativity that may be lying in the grass like a snake.
