Picking up where The Pernicious Knifs left off

Once upon a time … nah, don’t worry. This isn’t one of those stories. This isn’t a fairy tale and it isn’t going to be written as one. You can interpret tragedy in a number of different ways. You can see lessons and morals and realize everything could be one or the other.

It’s refreshing when a band is christened purposefully and not by randomly assembling words that have never been juxtaposed before.

'The Music Should Speak for Itself'

Female musicians discuss gender, Rock & Roll and the local music scene

We’ve all seen the bumper sticker: a simplistic drawing of a baby chicken above the words “Chicks Rock.” Well, that statement couldn’t be truer in the case of Lisa Walker and Margaret Darling, the female faces behind local bands Wussy and The Seedy Seeds, respectively.  

The Silver Ain't Just in the Anniversary

As I looked at the calendar recently, considering the dozens of ways I might disappoint my wife on our 25th wedding anniversary this summer, I was struck by a rather startling revelation. I realized that the year we were married was the same year that I started writing about Cincinnati music.

With an idea to do something distinctly different, A Day to Remember assembled six years ago from the ashes of a variety of other bands in the flourishing Metal/Punk scene around Ocala, Fla.  

Couple That Plays and Prays Together

Artists & Authors take several leaps of faith with new release

It takes a certain amount of faith to be in a band. For Andrea Summer and Tye VonAllmen, being in Cincinnati’s Artists & Authors is a test of all of their various faiths — the faith that musicians have in each other when they play together.  

Hard-Luck Heartbreakers

Hard-workin’, Roots-rockin’ Lucero is starting to see its fortunes change

Five years ago, it didn’t look like Lucero was going to make it. As noted in the beginning of Dreaming in America, Aaron Goldman’s 2005 documentary about the Memphis quartet, they were a “band without a label and without a single royalty after 20,000 albums sold. Touring (was) their only income.”
