Record Store Day’s Local Spin

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 13, 2011
Northside’s Shake It Records (often recognized as one of the best record stores in the Midwest) is again going all out with Record Store Day activities. Besides stocking most of the special recordings being offered exclusively on RSD (making it a daylong wet dream for serious record collectors), Shake It has put together a lineup of appearances for Saturday that gives some love to our local music-makers.  

And the Winners Are …

On Nov. 21 at Covington's Madison Theater, Cincinnati Entertainment Awards were presented in 19 categories. An even mix of previous CEA victors (Freekbass, Dallas Moore Band, Ricky Nye) and first-time nominees (I Am the Messenger, Mad Anthony, Pop Empire), winners received the trademark CEA "trophy," a groovy hand-painted faux-"Gold Record" plaque.

Let Us Praise

Cincinnati Entertainment Awards continues 14-year tradition of celebrating local music

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 16, 2010
The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards program is an attempt to remind local musicians that their contributions are greatly appreciated. It's also an attempt to bring together musicians (as well the non-musicians who work to support and nurture the scene) from across the local music spectrum to have an outrageously good time. Having a full bar in the room might be a factor, too, as will be in evidence Sunday night at the Madison Theater.

Another week, another teetering pile of releases to consider. I've already run seriously short on time again for this posting due to accumulating deadlines and last-minute assignments from a variety of sources. Good for my bottom line, bad for my schedule. This week I'm checking out new CDs from Roky Erickson, Apples in Stereo, Ozomatli, Shelby Lynne, Sweet Apple and Matt Pond PA.  

Crazy Like a Fox

Cincinnati's Foxy Shazam poised to break big with major label debut album

1 Comment · Tuesday, April 6, 2010
Foxy Shazam might have signed to super-conglomerate Warner Bros., but they're not reining in their enthusiasm for unhinged craziness and uniquely eccentric creativity. Witness the recurring lyric from "Bye Bye Symphony" from Foxy's about-to-be-released major-label debut, a line at once wildly hilarious, supremely confident and nonsensibly pragmatic: "Life is a bitch, but she's totally doable." That sentiment belongs on the bumper of every car in America.  

Foxy Shazam with The Sounds

Foxy Shazam, one of Cincinnati's hardest-touring bands, isn't going to get less busy anytime soon. It was recently announced that the eccentric keys-driven quintet has signed with legendary label Sire Records. Foxy Shazam is up for the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for "Best Musical Ambassador for the City" this year thanks to the group's insane touring schedule. They won the "Best Live Act" CEA in 2008.
