A Sudsy Salute

Soapland comes clean about its name and debut EP, The Inflatable Real

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 8, 2011
You might think you’re getting the joke in Soapland’s name, assuming it refers to the long and profitable presence of Procter & Gamble in Cincinnati. Soapland wouldn’t be the first to take a jab at P&G’s pervasive profile. When Wizard Records owner John James conceived his 1988 local album project, his original title concept was We Built This City on Pork and Soap.  

New Kids On the Rock

Cincinnati’s Kry Kids want you to dance and think … and dance

2 Comments · Tuesday, April 26, 2011
One of Kry Kids’ live trademarks is a structural complexity that finds everyone but Donaldson moving constantly between instruments and roles. Like a well-choreographed but also intuitive ballet, the switch-ups are planned and practiced but come across graceful and natural enough to not be a momentum killer.  

The Sweetest Redo

Mush Records releases physical version of Eat Sugar digital LP

0 Comments · Tuesday, February 15, 2011
It’s a proud moment when a band can celebrate the release of its debut full-length album, but slightly more unusual to celebrate the same release again six months later. But, as any fan will tell you, Eat Sugar doesn’t do much by the book.  

Jay Bolotin Onstage

Acclaimed visual artist finds unexpected interest in his singer/songwriter past

0 Comments · Tuesday, December 7, 2010
Acclaimed visual artist Jay Bolotin — who lives in North Fairmount and has a Brighton studio — has been devoting time to a related but somewhat separate aspect of his artistic career. He’s finding new attention as a singer/songwriter, for both his past and present work.  

Roger Klug Power Trio

Dec. 11 • Northside Tavern

0 Comments · Tuesday, December 7, 2010
This year reclusive singer-songwriter Roger Klug's work has taken a variety of forms, including his phenomenal down-on-the-farm take on "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" for 'Ring,' the public radio fundraising Christmas CD. With renewed live activity via the Roger Klug Power Trio and Rant to Save Yourself, the stage seems set for a full-blown resurgence by the Power Pop wunderkind.  

Whiskey Daredevils

June 12 • Northside Tavern

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 8, 2010
If you remember The Cowslingers, you'll recall a carousing, careening group of Country-fried, Punkabilly ass kickers from Ohio's North Shore sporting a wicked sense of humor and a freewheeling allegiance to every genre they touched. When the Slingers called it a day after nine albums in as many years, three of them re-focused their Country and Punk roots into Whiskey Daredevils.  

Home Stripped Home

Kentuckians Moore and Sollee team up to address unsound mining practices in Appalachia

0 Comments · Monday, February 8, 2010
Two years ago, regional Folk phenoms Daniel Martin Moore and Ben Sollee met at a Lexington show and began making small talk about music when the subject of Appalachian strip mining was broached. This mutual passion led to the collaborative album, 'Dear Companion.'  

Esme Kenney Memorial Benefit

Jan. 30 • Northside Tavern

0 Comments · Tuesday, January 26, 2010
Saturday's memorial show is a fitting tribute to 13-year-old Esme Kenney, whose promising life was cut way too short. The show features music from Kim Taylor, Karen Bergquist and Linford Detweiler of Over the Rhine, Ric Hordinski, The Hiders and The Chocolate Horse. Attendees will also be able to support a planned memorial sculpture at SCPA, Esme's school, in a silent auction featuring artwork by photographer Michael Wilson, woodcut artist Jay Bolotin and Esme's mother, Lisa Kenney.   

Coltrane Motion with Eagle to Squirrel, Bullying Ben Jones

Jan. 9 • Northside Tavern

0 Comments · Monday, January 4, 2010
It wasn't so long ago that Michael Bond and Matt Dennewitz packed up their respective keyboards and guitars and headed for Chicago after plying Cincinnati fans with their eclectic vision of droning noisy Dance Punk. They still make regular pilgrimages back to Cincinnati, but don't take their presence for granted. It's just a matter of time before Coltrane Motion gets noticed in a major way and their indoor musical maelstroms make them a buzzy sensation on the coasts.
