WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?

Digging Deep

Ben Knight and the Welldiggers have stories to tell on their debut album, Divining Rod

1 Comment · Wednesday, November 6, 2013
Ben Knight and the Welldiggers play American music. Kentucky Country music. A noble homage to generations of toil and progress. The songs on the Cincinnati band’s debut release, Divining Rod, are a frighteningly intimate introduction to Ben Knight, the storyteller. He and the Welldiggers earnestly compose new and original tunes that catch your attention with equal parts nostalgia and intrigue.

Distant Correspondent

Nov. 4 • Mayday

0 Comments · Monday, October 28, 2013
 Distant Correspondent has been described as “wintery,” “moody,” and “Joy Division if Ian Curtis had been on antidepressants,” all of which are appropriately applicable to the band’s darkly cinematic ‘70s-to-now soundscapes.   

Matt Wertz

Nov. 3 • 20th Century Theater

0 Comments · Monday, October 28, 2013
 Wertz’s music can be described in two words: Mom Rock. He falls in line with guys like Matt Nathanson and Gavin Degraw (both former tour mates). It’s the kind of Lite FM sound that only works on people in love or people who are waiting for their rom-com moment.   

Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion

Nov. 1 • MOTR Pub

Sarah Lee Guthrie did not begin to take music seriously until she met her now-husband, Irion, whose own lineage includes literary giant John Steinbeck, his great uncle. The duo has been touring and recording music since 1999.    

Freedy Johnston

Oct. 30 • MOTR Pub

 There are few better examples of the injustice of the term “one-hit wonder” than Freedy Johnston. Although he fits the description with his lone hit single, 1994’s “Bad Reputation,” his output before and after his one ubiquitous smash has been every bit as deserving of commercial acceptance.   

Rusko

Oct. 30 • Bogart's

0 Comments · Monday, October 21, 2013
 With his shorn sides/unkempt mop top haircut and defiantly Punk energy, Rusko has the period look of one of Ian Dury’s Blockheads circa New Boots and Panties. But his birth in 1985 places him in a different musical context entirely.    

Tech N9ne

Oct. 27 • Bogart's

0 Comments · Monday, October 21, 2013
Rolling Stone recently dubbed Tech N9ne “the hardest-working rapper,” and this calendar year is potent proof of that assertion.     

Valerie June

Oct. 24 • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Monday, October 21, 2013
 If you think of Americana music as a delicious home-cooked stew of Blues, Soul, Country, Folk, Gospel, acoustic-guitar meditation and funky Rock reverie, then you’ll have an idea of what to expect from Valerie June.
