WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Order 66 (Profile)

Punk rockers talk food, cassettes and true D.I.Y. music

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 3, 2008
My search, aided by Al Gore's trusty inter-web, lasted about two and a half minutes. That's longer than most Order 66 songs, but that's OK. My feeble attempts at research are shadowed only by my limited amount of knowledge. Drummer Alex Kuhling wastes no time in his efforts, quickly grabbing a freshly washed glass and mixing equal parts Blue PowerAde and Sierra Mist together.  

Arms Wide Open

After three years together, Arms Exploding debuts the aptly titled 'Ruminari'

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 3, 2008
The five members of Arms Exploding are serious about making music, and it shows. The sounds emanating from the band's debut album for the local Phratry label are intense and harrowing, a melodic Post Punk/Prog cacophony of double clutch drumming, heart attack bass, delicately thrashing guitars and unhinged vocals.  

Music: Turnbull ACs CD Release Party

The Turnbull ACs have been called a lot of things, and they think every one of them is pretty funny. As the quartet prepares for a practice on the eve of a studio session at WOXY.com, frontman Dan Mecher and drummer Brian Penick laugh as they recount the mangled pronunciations that have been inflicted on the band. Turbo '80s. Turtle Hayseeds. Turned Balls even. The band kicks off a CD release weekend extravaganza for their album "Small Town Parade" with shows at the Blue Note Thursday, Northside Tavern Friday and with The Features Saturday at the Mad Hatter.

As someone (me) once said (last year), a local music scene is only as good as its new artists. This Saturday, many of Greater Cincinnati's newest musical acts will be on hand for the eighth annual Brink New Music Showcase, scattered throughout the Southgate House.

Cheryl Renee and Them Bones

Saturday • The Avenue

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 12, 2008
Keyboardist/vocalist Cheryl Renee's live shows are high-energy evenings of bawdy, brassy Blues, and she's teamed up with Cincinnati mainstays Them Bones to offer a taste of her performing prowess on a recently released live CD of classic Blues covers.  

MidPoint Central

It's all over but the memories and the clean-up. Relive MPMF right here!

It's come and gone: the 2008 MidPoint Music Festival. Remember the bands, the clubs, the performances, the Scions and the crowds at this headquarters site for CityBeat's coverage of MPMF.  

Nye on 10 Years

Ricky Nye readies his annual Blues & Boogie Piano Summit

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 5, 2008
Starting with an appearance at the Blues Fest Arches Stage, Ricky Nye met like-minded pianists worldwide and began the hard work of securing sponsors and funding; the Blues & Boogie Piano Summit was officially conceived. The Summit has naturally spun off into other opportunities as well, serving as an exchange program in which the international pianists Nye invites to Cincinnati have returned the favor offering him slots at their home country events.

But if you’re a local music fan looking for more than “Monster Mash” karaoke and costume contests, here are my picks for Friday’s fiercest, most fearsome shows.
