Title Fight

May 5 • PNC Pavilion

0 Comments · Monday, April 30, 2012
 Title Fight was started by Ben and Ned Russin back when they were 12 or 13, and the brothers began collaborating and even touring with Shane Moran and Jamie Rhoden soon thereafter. Despite its early start, the group's discography consisted of seven-inches, EPs and other odds and ends until May 2011 when well-connected Punk label SideOneDummy Records released Title Fight’s debut record, Shed.

Q&A with Gavin Rossdale of Bush

Bush was the peak of Alternative music success in the mid and late ’90s. After an eight year break, the band reformed with as fresh a sound as they ever have provided. From its first No. 1 album, Razorblade Suitcase, Bush was an unstoppable force until its split in 2002. In 2010, lead singer Gavin Rossdale put the band back together and Bush recently released its fifth studio album, The Sea of Memories. CityBeat caught up with Rossdale to preview the band’s concert with Chevelle and Filter this Friday at Riverbend's PNC Pavilion. We discussed the process of putting the band back together, the current tour. R.E.M.'s breakup and how his turbulent upbringing impacts his songwriting.

Q&A with Death Cab for Cutie

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } One of the strangest word combinations to ever create a band name, Death Cab for Cutie controls the alternative music scene across America. They have been a nationally touring band since 1997 with their first release. Now in their 14th year, Codes and Keys has been one of the band's most successful offerings to date. The first single, “You Are A Tourist,” received a lot of airplay on Rock radio across the country reaching number one on the Alternative charts in the U.S. The band recently released the video for its latest single, "Stay Young, Go Dancing" (view it at the bottom of this post below). CityBeat recently spoke with bassist Nick Harmer to discuss the new album and it’s critically acclaimed reception (as well as a very scary moment on their festival run this past summer). Death Cab starts their latest tour on Friday night in Cincinnati at the PNC Pavilion at Riverbend Music Center.

O.A.R. with Soja and Kelly James

July 21 • PNC Pavilion at Riverbend

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 19, 2011
It’s been a decade and a half since the original quartet of Marc Roberge, Chris Culos, Richard On and Benj Gershman came together as Of a Revolution in their Rockville, Md., hometown. The high-schoolers recorded and released their 1997 debut, The Wanderer, and then all four members relocated to Columbus, Ohio, in order to attend The Ohio State University.  

Donald Fagen's Revue Redo

Steely Dan frontman hits the road with pals for the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue

1 Comment · Friday, September 3, 2010
As a student of musical history, Steely Dan's Donald Fagen knows that during the Great Depression musical revues were a popular form of live entertainment. So does that mean the 'Dukes of September Rhythm Revue,' coming to PNC Pavilion Sept. 10 and featuring Fagen, Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald, was launched in response to the ongoing Great Recession? "No, but it occurs to me that sometimes these things happen on an unconscious level," Fagen says.  

Tegan and Sara with Paramore

August 12 • Shake It Records/Riverbend

0 Comments · Tuesday, August 10, 2010
Most bands aspire to a large fan base that will eventually turn out in headliner-defining numbers, making its opening slot status a relic of leaner, hungrier times. The Canadian Indie/Folk/Pop twins of Tegan and Sara are certainly eager to attract more fans but they have absolutely no interest in abandoning their role as an opening act. They open for Paramore Thursday at PNC Pavilion.  

The Donnas with Blondie and Pat Benatar

Aug. 15 • PNC Pavilion

0 Comments · Monday, August 10, 2009
Get ready for a blazing show at PNC Pavilion: The Donnas in live mode are like a Russian porn star, Rockyer Cockov. For evidence, check out the group's latest CD, the ironically-titled 'Greatest Hits Vol. 16,' which offers up freshly recorded and live versions of old songs, a few B-side rarities and some new material. Fellas, hold on tight. Ladies, keep track of your wigs and keys. It's going to be a Donnas kind of night.  

Tool with Tweak Bird

Aug. 7 • PNC Pavilion

Tool's viscerally shredding set is designed to elicit gyrational sweat even without the unrelenting, cloudless sun. The mayhem on stage is unstoppable — Tool ratchets up the volume and dark energy with almost psychopathic intent. Metaphorically, this is exactly how every Tool show has felt as the band agitates, cooks, refreshes, repeats. Thus may it ever be.   

Rise Against with Rancid

June 22 • PNC Pavilion at Riverbend

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 17, 2009
It can be hard for a band to retain its indie identity when big labels start throwing money around, but Rise Against has never risen to that bait even when it signed to one of the biggest labels in the industry.  

O.A.R. with The Wailers

June 13 • PNC Pavilion

Although most of its members hail from elsewhere, Ohio can claim a little local pride when the subject of O.A.R. arises.
