WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Not Bad at All

Bad Veins, Seedy Seeds takes top honors at rockin' CEA show

0 Comments · Monday, November 23, 2009
The music of Cincinnati (past, present and future) was on glorious display at Covington's Madison Theater Nov. 22 at the 2009 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards for Music. The "bar" ambiance (and Kentucky's love of smoking) kept everyone inside, though we heard many of the old "my clothes and hair smell" complaints. Fear not: Official CEA 2010 gasmasks and Hazmat suits are being produced as you read this.

Spencer's Gift

Former local club owner/city council candidate finds his groove in the comics industry

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 13, 2010
"Nick Spencer Cincinnati" — the results of this Web search yield a litany of news and critical opinions surrounding the now 31-year-old former co-owner of alchemize bar, two-time candidate for City Council and founder of the one-off Desdemona Music Festival in 2006. Buried in that search, though, is news about Spencer's latest venture: writing comics.  

Heroes of the Zeroes

Fifty reasons why real music fans were lucky to live in Cincinnati in the ’00s

3 Comments · Wednesday, December 23, 2009
As we approach the beginning of a new decade, I decided to try to think of 100 reasons why I've enjoyed covering Cincinnati music over the past 3,650 days. At first I was worried I might not be able to come up with enough. A couple of hours into an "off the top of my head" list, I considered changing it to 1,000 reasons. After some hard editing choices, I've managed to squeeze the decade down into 50 items.

Local Indie Pop duo Bad Veins has been steadily touring the country since the summer release of its self-titled debut album on Dangerbird Records, and they get a little break. Still, they'll be performing Saturday at aliveOne in Mount Adams with Electro pals You You're Awesome (fresh off an appearance at the CMJ conference in New York City). DJ Matt Joy and DJ K-Smuv will spin as well.  

Dead Musicians Society Offers Lively Show

If you did the zombie dress-up thing for Halloween and grew so attached you want to sport your costume again this weekend, you'd probably fit right in at Covington's Molly Malone's this Friday. That's when local singer/songwriter Beau Alquizola puts on the show "Dead Musicians Society," his annual benefit for the local Stop AIDS organization that features local bands covering their favorite deceased artists.  

And the Fests Keep Comin'

Early fall is starting to shape up as "music festival" time in Cincinnati. After another spectacular MidPoint Music Festival, you'd think folks might want some down time. Instead, they have plenty more "fest" choices this weekend: Popopolis, Clifton Heights Music Festival, Pharaohfest and a Jake Speed-led tribute to Woody Guthrie.  

Popopolis

Oct. 2-3 • Fountain Square

On Friday and Saturday Fountain Square keeps the good vibes from MidPoint and this summer's MidPoint Indie Summer concert series going with a new incarnation of the "Popopolis" event, which was founded in the late '90s as a way to bring the best in Power Pop and other versions of melodic Pop/Rock to Greater Cincinnati. Friday is "reunion night," featuring sets from some of the festival's original performers, while Saturday has performances by Bad Veins, Wussy, The Seedy Seeds and other current acts.

The J. Dorsey Blues Band formed three years ago as a duo and morphed into the quartet it is now, featuring Josh Dorsey on guitar and vocals, drummer Andrew Karas, bassist Mike Gregory and Kristen Kreft on keys and vocals. The band's evolution continues with a recently announced 'slight' name change; you can soon call them The J. Dorsey Blues Revival.
