WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Guster with Kishi Bashi

Wednesday • Bogart’s

0 Comments · Tuesday, April 14, 2015
It hardly seems possible that next year marks the 25th anniversary of the meeting of guitarists Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner and percussionist Brian Rosenworcel, freshmen at Tufts University who turned their dorm room songwriting hobby into a quarter century of Alt Rock/Folk Pop wonder as Guster.   

DIY Music and Culture Fest Debuts in Over-the-Rhine

The first Zines, Screens & Screams Fest, a celebration of DIY music and culture, comes to Main Street in Over-the-Rhine this Friday and Saturday. Plus, local Alt Pop Rock band Hot for Alice celebrates its debut album release, Sirens, and The Warsaw Falcons are back and playing this weekend with longtime friends The Tigerlilies and JetLab.  

The Utley Truth

Cincinnati’s Mark Utley releases his second solo effort, Bulletville, and resurrects Magnolia Mountain

Prolific singer/songwriter Mark Utley has released a single album’s worth of songs. And that’s all. Bulletville, Utley’s excellent sophomore solo album, is not a double-set on a single CD or accompanied by a new release from his band Magnolia Mountain or another musical vessel for the songs that pour endlessly from his head, heart and hands.  

Prophet, Sharing

The collaborative-minded Chuck Prophet’s latest, Night Surfer, is one of the best albums of his storied career

Chuck Prophet is making some of the best music of his career. Jangly, unique and rocking, Prophet’s jams should be reaching a bigger audience. But fickleness and modern tastes don’t always coincide with true creativity that may be lying in the grass like a snake.  

Lotus

Tuesday • Madison Theater

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Very few bands have successfully incorporated as many genres and directions into their groovy, improvisation-heavy Jam Band presentation as Lotus. For the past 16 years, the Philadelphia-based quintet has carved out a niche within the admittedly open and accepting Jam community with a fascinating combination of late ’90s Pop Rock, gadgety Electronica, noodly Fusion, raise-the-roof Funk, reflective Chillwave and positive Hip Hop.   

Colleen Green with Upset and Leggy

Sunday • Woodward Theater

Colleen Green’s third full-length (and first album recorded in an actual recording studio) is titled I Want to Grow Up, which is no coincidence. Well, that is if you equate a glossier sound and trying to kick coffee and weed as growing up.   

Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors with Humming House

Thursday • 20th Century Theater

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 8, 2015
You could glean a great deal about singer/songwriter Drew Holcomb and his wife/bandmate/occasional co-writer Ellie from the fact that they named their first child Emmylou. The Holcombs’ daughter arrived almost simultaneously with Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors’ 2013 album Good Light, a set that was ecstatically received by the band’s zealous fan base and positively reviewed by an increasingly jaded coterie of music critics.   

Liz Longley with Brian Wright

Wednesday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 8, 2015
While there is now a genre of music officially called Americana — a category that can either be characterized as full of diverse artists who aren’t afraid of mixing Roots music in with their sound or as a way to promote and market artists who can’t get on Country radio — there is still an unfortunate desire to drag artists like Liz Longley into the Country music miasma.  

Rubblebucket with Vacationer

Saturday • Woodward Theater

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 1, 2015
Born in Burlington, Vt., and headquartered in New York City, Rubblebucket is a perfect storm of Pop precision, Soul passion, Art Rock quirk and Ska bob-and-weave choreography.  

6 String Drag with Hannah Aldridge

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 1, 2015
Band reunions can be joyful, fist-pumping celebrations or dismal funeral services for long deceased entities that should never have been exhumed. If you’re scoring at home, Roots Rock ‘N’ Roll, the first new 6 String Drag album in 18 years, belongs deliriously in the celebratory category.
