WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Tegan and Sara Open Up

Defining their career playing for audiences other than their own

0 Comments · Tuesday, August 10, 2010
Most bands aspire to a large fan base that will eventually turn out in headliner-defining numbers, making its opening slot status a relic of leaner, hungrier times.

It can't be too surprising that Ziggy Marley has often involved himself in family/kid-related projects in his career. His iconic father, Bob Marley, typified family in broadly exaggerated and unconventional ways, and Ziggy is most assuredly his father's most famous son.

It is sort of the Goldilocks version of concert venues. It’s not too big, not too small. It’s just right. The year-old PNC Pavilion at Riverbend has proven to be just the right mix for the Cincinnati concert porridge. The 4,100-seat amphitheater opened last spring, immediately filling a void in the Greater Cincinnati concert scene.
