The Many Moods of MidPoint

MidPoint Music Festival was a rollercoaster of emotions and sounds

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 29, 2010
We had joy, we had fun. We had some frustration and anger, too. Such has been the way of the MidPoint Music Festival since its origins in 2002. But, in the end, MPMF’s 2010 edition proved to be the most successful yet, drawing thousands of music lovers to downtown, Over-the-Rhine and Newport over the course of three days.

Every year, a compilation featuring several of the artists performing at the MidPoint Music Festival is lovingly compiled to give an overview of some of the fest’s participants. MPMF10’s comp has been assembled and you can listen to it right here.

I move on trying to play catch-up with a mountain of new album releases, with just barely a breath to mention the passings of underground comic author Harvey Pekar and counterculture figure Tuli Kupferberg, co-frontman and songwriter for The Fugs. Let's check out the new albums from Ed Kowalczyk (of Live fame), Magnolia Mountain, Jimmie Vaughan, Walter Trout, Kylie Minogue and The Cat Empire.  

Magnolia in Bloom

Magnolia Mountain goes lo-tech and high class on ambitious new album, 'Redbird Green'

Local Americana/Roots outfit Magnolia Mountain remembers the old days of record-making and wanted to connect with them in some significant way, so they're releasing their new ambitiously sized CD, 'Redbird Green,' in a double-album vinyl format. It was clearly a structure Magnolia frontman Mark Utley was working toward — the titles on the back of the CD are separated into four distinct sides.

The annual Rivertown Breakdown has been the finest showcase of local Roots music practitioners for nine years now. And the lineup for this year's event once again provides a "Cincinnati Roots Music Scene 101" for local Americana fans: Rumpke Mountain Boys, Magnolia Mountain, Straw Boss, Jake Speed & the Freddies, Frontier Folk Nebraska, Shiny and the Spoon, Faux Frenchmen, Cincinnati Dancing Pigs, Rubber Knife Gang, Marmalade Brigade and many, many more.

The annual Rivertown Breakdown has been the finest showcase of local Roots music practitioners for nine years now. And the lineup for this year's event (Saturday at the Southgate House) once again provides a "Cincinnati Roots Music Scene 101" for Americana fans who might not realize what a strong scene we have right here along the banks of the Ohio River. The music ranges from Bluegrass and Folk to Jazz, Blues and beyond on all three Southgate stages.

More than 700 independently-owned record stores in the U.S. are participating in the third annual Record Store Day Saturday, including three of Cincinnati's finest sources for local music: Shake It (live music starts at 4 p.m., headlined by The Seedy Seeds), Everybody's (music at noon with Magnolia Mountain and Kim Taylor) and Mole's (throwing down a cook-out and hopefully some live music).  

Shiny and the Spoon (Profile)

Amidst a packed schedule, Roots duo releases debut EP

For Shiny and the Spoon, creating a whimsical, old-timey sound involves using subtlety and simplicity as a crafty tool. Tom Waits meets Ella Fitzgerald with a ukulele in the mix. Americana/Folk/Pop with a '20s spin. And this duo's clever style recently earned them a Cincinnati Entertainment Awards nomination in the New Artist of the Year category.

This Sunday, local musicians and the fans who love them will be getting gussied up for the 13th Cincinnati Entertainment Awards honoring local musicians.

Local musicians and the fans who love them will be getting gussied up for the 13th annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards for Music Sunday night at Covington's Madison Theater. Even if you disdain the concept of award shows, the CEAs are always one of the best parties of the year and totally down to earth. The afterparty ranks up there too — buy a ticket and get into the post-ceremony shindig at The Mad Hatter, where The Fairmount Girls will hand out their Fashion Trashie Awards.
