WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Love Sick at Southgate

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 9, 2011
Love is a many-splendored thing … unless you’ve been burned by it or are living without it. Then it’s stupid and you didn’t want it anyway, right? If you’re in that loveless boat, turn commiseration into celebration at the third annual “anti-Valentine’s Day extravaganza,” Love Sick, this Friday at the Southgate House.   

The Sundresses: Sundresses Off

[Self-released]

0 Comments · Saturday, October 30, 2010
This album is ironclad evidence of The Sundresses' power as a live entity, as every track they present on stage is an adrenalized, bug-eyed evocation of the adrenalized, bug-eyed song they conceived in the studio. Half was recorded at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, N.J., and the other half at Northside Tavern.  

The Sundresses, Sufjan Stevens, Shelby Lynne and Jimmy Eat World

It's difficult for me to retain any semblance of journalistic objectivity when it comes to The Sundresses. My first exposure to their special brand of madness was at my first South By Southwest in 2004, which happened to be the band’s first SXSW, as well, and only their eighth or ninth out of town gig at that point. In 45 sweat-soaked minutes, The Sundresses reordered my musical universe and won me over completely. Perhaps it's fitting then that the new Sundresses album, 'Sundresses Off,' is a live offering that showcases the band's performance gifts with the visceral wallop that can only be achieved in front of their amps.  

Local Release Mania

Acoustic Blues duo 46 Long, Punk journeymen I Fail, Roots/Folk collective The Midlife Crisis Ramblers, the Electro/Indie/Dance group Eat Sugar, and local dark wizards of Roots/Rock The Sundresses are all releasing albums this week. It's like a back-to-school special for kick-ass music.  

Northside Explodes for Fourth

The Northside Rock 'n Roll Carnival/Parade/Festival features the best lineup of homegrown bands and musicians you'll find all holiday weekend. And you don't even have to miss the other Fourth of July events and fireworks displays around town because the fun takes place Friday and Saturday, with no events on the actual Fourth.  

Northside Rock & Roll Carnival, Parade and Festival

July 2-3 • Hoffner Park

Of all the area Fourth of July celebrations, the Northside Rock & Roll Carnival/Parade/Festival features the best lineup of homegrown bands and musicians. And it's so cool you don't even have to miss the other Fourth of July events and fireworks displays around town because the fun takes place Friday and Saturday, with no events on the actual Fourth.  

The Sundresses and Wussy

Dec. 26 • Northside Tavern

Thanks to the weekend-friendly way Christmas falls this year, Saturday night looks like it might well take over alleged "biggest bar day of the year" (a.k.a. Thanksgiving Eve) honors. If you're a fan of original local music, a sure bet is the Northside Tavern, which a) has no cover charge and b) is hosting two of Cincinnati's best bands, Wussy and The Sundresses, for a night of sardonic wit and electrifying Indie Rock and Blues Punk.

Symbiotic, which organizes arts and music shows in alternative places, will drain the swimming pool at Ziegler Park in Over-the-Rhine Saturday for its newest installation art excursion: Six Feet Deep. The park's empty public pool will feature swimming instruction a la music, with performances by Matthew Shelton, Wonky Tonk, Envelope from Columbus and The Sundresses.  

One Last Dip

As the city reluctantly says hello to the slow, drab, grey days of autumn, we say goodbye to the warmer months of music fests and outdoor anythings with one last dip in the pool. Symbiotic, which organizes arts and music shows in alternative places, will drain the swimming pool at Over-the-Rhine's Ziegler Park on Saturday for its newest installation art excursion: Six Feet Deep.  

A 'Point of Pride

2009 MidPoint Music Festival persevered and thrived despite the rain

3 Comments · Tuesday, September 29, 2009
Now in its eighth year, MidPoint 2009 faced rain each of its three nights. But, in a testament to how much the festival's reputation has grown since its inception, attendance hardly seemed impacted by the grey, wet weather. Even on the Thursday opening night (traditionally the "slow" night of the event), a steady drizzle didn't stop local and regional music fans from packing the clubs, tents and makeshift venues.
