WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Col. Bruce Hampton

 About 10 years ago, Col. Bruce Hampton played the now-defunct Barrelhouse here in Cincy. Now, Hampton brings his latest band to Stanley’s Pub, following last year’s release of the documentary movie, Basically Frightened: The Musical Madness of Col. Bruce Hampton, Ret.  

New Found Glory

May 23 • Thompson House

New Found Glory is a rarity in contemporary music; a band that attains iconic status without succumbing to compromise or internal fracturing.   

Simo

May 23 • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Monday, May 20, 2013
Simo's eponymous 2011 record is workmanlike Psychedelic/Classic Rock with a good number of highlights, including the acoustic-gone-full-throttle-Rock rush of “Young Man, Old Man” and the boozy, midnight-hour-in-the-dive-bar Blues of “What's On Your Mind.”   

Andrew W.K.

May 26 • Madison Theater

AWK recently sang lead for Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg, a Ramones tribute, and his current show, The Human Party Machine Solo Tour, is a one-keyboard/one-mic frenzy of, as he puts it, "blood, love and courage." Get there, get set and get wet.  

Danny Schmidt

May 19 • Southgate House Revival

Schmidt's poetic and melodic gifts have earned him glowing comparisons to Dylan and Leonard Cohen, his keen sense of humor has been measured against Prine and Steve Goodman and his haunting songcraft, as well as his roots, have aligned him with Townes Van Zandt.   

Todd Rundgren

May 18 • Bogart's

0 Comments · Monday, May 13, 2013
Rundgren’s own latest album is called State and it brings the long-time innovator into the modern scene full bore, with energetic stabs at Electronica, Dub Step and Techno, with his unique vocals and multi-layered/multi-instrumental arsenal thrown up against the electronics to see what sticks.  

The Killers

May 16 • Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati

0 Comments · Monday, May 13, 2013
After close to six solid years of touring and a quintet of best selling albums (including a B-sides/rarities collection and a live CD/DVD set), The Killers began 2010 with the announcement that they would be taking a well-deserved break. But the need to create doesn't take convenient vacations.   

Wild Moccasins with of Montreal

May 18 • Madison Theater

Ordinarily, Indie Rock, Halo and skating share a whole heap of nothing in common. But for Wild Moccasins vocalist/guitarist Cody Swann, each of those things has functioned as an all-enveloping obsession at some point in his life.   

Violent Affair

May 21 • Thompson House

Violent Affair reportedly came together to fill a local Street Punk niche no one else was filling — “We felt like if you wanted to hear a certain type of music, go and play it,” lead vocalist Dave Williams wisely said in a 2012 interview.

Music Tonight: The Lonely Wild, Paper Bird and More

If you're craving some solid live music, it's a surprisingly busy Monday night in the area clubs. Besides the always entertaining Insane Clown Posse's return to Bogart's tonight, here are a few other offerings:• Los Angeles-based The Lonely Wild plays a free show tonight at MOTR Pub in Over-the-Rhine. Showtime is 10 p.m. The Indie Folk ensemble formed just three short years ago, quickly becoming a favorite on the L.A. club circuit. The group's momentum has only increased since; the Wild's recently released debut full-length, The Sun As It Comes, has been garnering strong reviews and national radio's embrace of it gets stronger by the day. The band is also known for its entertaining, energized live show, which is helping The Lonely Wild grow its fan base rapidly on its current cross-country headlining tour. Read CityBeat's preview of tonight's show here. Have a listen to The Sun As It Comes in full:And here is The Lonely Wild performing live in L.A. late last year:• It's an "Up-and-coming Indie Folk band" kind of night in Cincy this evening, as The Comet in Northside welcomes Denver crew Paper Bird. Austin, Texas-based Indie folkers Dana Falconberry open at 10 p.m. With an exuberant, modern mesh of Roots and Americana, Paper Bird recently released its fourth LP, Rooms, the follow-up to its 2011 score for a collaboration with the Ballet Nouveau Colorado called Carry On. The seven-piece band's compelling sound has gotten Paper Bird featured on NPR's All Things Considered and in a New York Times piece earlier this year about Denver's blossoming music scene (which includes breakthrough, Grammy-nominated Folk Pop act The Lumineers, a tour mate of Paper Bird's). Here's the music video for "As I Am," the first single off of Paper Bird's Rooms:• Justin Furstenfeld, known for his emotional, honest songwriting in the band Blue October, brings his solo tour — dubbed "Open Book: An Evening with Justin Furstenfeld" — to Oakley's 20th Century Theatre tonight for an 8 p.m. show. Tickets are $25 at the door. Texas Indie Pop singer/songwriter Ashleigh Stone opens.Furstenfeld's bipolar disorder has resulted in some highly open-hearted, sometimes excruciatingly bleak songs, something documented in his book, Crazy Making, detailing the origins of each Blue October song in words and music. The Open Book tour features Furstenfeld performing acoustically and talking about his songs (don't fear a total gloom fest; the singer/songwriter also has a sharp sense of humor). Check out CityBeat's preview of tonight's show here. Here is Furstenfeld performing live at the Open Book tour's stop in Santa Ana, Calif., from early April: Click here for even more live show in Greater Cincinnati tonight.
