Wussy Plays First, Last Local Show of the Summer Tonight

Wildly acclaimed rockers join Tigerlilies, Honey & Houston and School of Rock Mason for free MidPoint Indie Summer show on Fountain Square

Since being released nationally in early May, Cincinnati rockers Wussy’s amazing latest album Attica! has been scoring an insane amount of neon-glowing reviews from many high profile outlets. Pitchfork, Pop Matters and Spin, among many others, have all given the album high praise (Spin also recently named it one of the Top 50 album releases of the year so far, alongside long-players by Beck, Pharrell and The Afghan Whigs). The band’s new record was also the inspiration for a remarkable essay by Charles Taylor for The Los Angeles Review of Books.Give a listen to the new album below, then hit “buy” to grab your own copy: <a href="http://wussy.bandcamp.com/album/attica">Attica! by Wussy</a> Wussy is playing its only local show until at least this fall tonight, as the group keeps busy on the road throughout the summer, crisscrossing the country in support of Attica! The band’s upward trajectory that has been kickstarted by the new album shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.Check out CityBeat's recent interview with Wussy here. Wussy joins The Tigerlilies, Honey & Houston and students from the School of Rock Mason (check the clips below for samples of each) for a free show tonight on Fountain Square as part of the MidPoint Indie Summer series (grab your MidPoint Music Festival passes in person at the MPMF booth or sign up for a chance to win some). The show starts at 7 p.m.
 
 

Superheaven (formerly Daylight) with Sheet Ghost, Chalk and Armslength

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Just a few weeks ago, Daylight was out on the road with Bayside, Four Year Strong and Cincinnati’s very own Mixtapes, tearing things up good and proper and getting great notices for their efforts. Apparently, lawyers were paying particular attention, as well.    

Blitzen Trapper with The Parkington Sisters

Monday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 28, 2014
“Feel the Chill,” the first song on Blitzen Trapper’s latest, 2013’s succinctly titled VII, finds the Portland, Ore., outfit in new territory — it sounds like Kid Rock doing Mellow Gold-era Beck covers, its funky beats, harmonica flourishes and Southern-fried guitar lines almost enough to inspire dance-floor movement.  

Annie Sellick

Thursday and Friday • Blue Wisp Jazz Club

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Talented Jazz vocalist Annie Sellick returns to Cincinnati this week for three shows at the Blue Wisp with her trio (drummer Chris Brown, bassist Jerry Navarro and pianist Chris Walters).   

Kid Ink with King Los and Bizzy Crook

Saturday • Bogart’s

Early last year, Kid Ink signed with RCA which resulted in a flurry of activity, including his slamming singles “Bad Ass” and “Money and the Power” from his well-received EP Almost Home.   

Dawes with Conor Oberst

Tuesday • Taft Theatre

Dawes is back! Why? I’m sure there are legitimate reasons for their tour, but I’m going to wager that it’s mostly just because they love Cincinnati so much. (Oh, and they're backing tourmate Conor Oberst during his headlining set.)   

Glue with Durazzo and AF the Naysayer

Friday • Mayday

Indie Hip Hop supergroup Glue hasn’t performed in more than five years, but on Friday two-thirds of the crew will reassemble for a Glue reunion show in Northside.   

Conor Oberst with Dawes

Tuesday • Taft Theatre

Conor Oberst burst out of his Omaha, Neb., bedroom seemingly fully formed, a precocious teen armed with a verbose vocabulary and enough emotion to make The Cure look stoic by comparison.   

Royal Southern Brotherhood with The Dallas Moore Band

Tuesday • Southgate House Revival

Supergroups are problematic in that egos and talent levels tend to cancel each other out, and musical combinations that sound good in theory often implode in the execution phase. The other musical construct that can be fraught with its own particular series of pitfalls is the musician-carrying-on-the-family-name scenario. Royal Southern Brotherhood would seem to be flying in the face of a boatload of potential negatives as their lineup reflects both  situations.   

Grieves with SonReal

Wednesday • 20th Century Theatre

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 21, 2014
The cover of Grieves’ fourth full-length album, Winter & the Wolves, features the Seattle-based rapper standing in a wintery landscape, his black-clad frame engulfed by snow and ice. He’s holding a pickaxe, as if ready to take on whatever challenge might come his way. It’s a curious cover art choice in a Hip Hop world often bound by conformity.
