WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

As I Lay Dying

Nov. 30 • Madison Theater

There is something to be said for a Metal band that can incorporate its religious beliefs into the music without coming off as cliché or pompous. San Diego Metalcore outfit As I Lay Dying has been one of those bands.

Music Tonight: Walk the Moon and Bad Veins

A week after The Afghan Whigs played a thrilling homecoming show with fellow local greats Wussy at Bogart's, another pair of local bands making waves are set to play their hometown (or across the river from it). Every time Cincinnati AltPop rockers Walk the Moon come home to play a show, it seems like their star has risen higher. The band is back in town tonight for a sold-out show at Covington's Madison Theater (which is also serving as the two-year anniversary party for the hard-hustling local music promo outlet, The Counter Rhythm Group). Since last here, Walk the Moon's breakthrough single "Anna Sun" continues to get airplay across the globe, while the latest single, "Tightrope" (as heard in those much-played HP commercials) is picking up steam, as well. The group has also been on tour pretty much non-stop, performing all over North America and in Europe (after tonight's show, the group is off for a few days before resuming its headlining tour in Nashville). The band's Unplugged set for MTV also made it to the airwaves (not MTV, of course, but its HD sister, Palladia). Check out the "Tightrope" clip below and a behind the scenes look at the making of it here. Great local Indie Pop duo Bad Veins (fresh off their own cross-country tour dates, with even more coming up starting next week) open, along with L.A.'s Family of the Year. Bad Veins are currently prepping a new music video, as well; a clip for "Kindness" off of the duo's amazing The Mess We've Made Album. Here's a really strong video of the duo performing one of the new album's best tracks, "Don't Run," on the "Off the Avenue" series.If you don't have tickets, you're going to have to do some hunting. As of this afternoon, there wasn't a single ticket available on StubHub for the concert. Click here for more live music events in the Cincinnati area tonight.
 
 

Propagandhi

Nov. 3 • Madison Theater

0 Comments · Monday, October 29, 2012
These days, it’s hard enough for a Punk band to remain a cohesive unit for 26 months, let alone 26 years. But guitarist Chris Hannah and drummer Jord Samolesky have managed to keep Propagandhi active and relevant since launching the band in 1986.   

"Delloween" with Larry Keel & Natural Bridge

Oct. 31 • Madison Theater

Bluegrass has always been embraced by the Jam community, thanks to Jerry Garcia’s abiding love of old-time music and the unique flavor he brought to his own translations. Native Virginian Larry Keel plays a similar role in the current Jam/Bluegrass scene as a flatpicking acoustic guitarist.    

"Delloween" with The Del McCoury Band

The Del McCoury Band is one of the most celebrated Bluegrass acts to date, but to say they are just a Bluegrass band would be doing them a disservice.  

The Werks

Oct. 27 • Madison Theater

Dayton’s music scene is similar to Cincinnati’s in that they’ve both given rise to a great number of bands that represent the incredible musical diversity within the respective band communities.The Werks are one of Dayton’s more recent success stories; the Jamadelic quartet officially formed five years ago.

WATCH: Walk the Moon's New "Tightrope" Video

Local band debuts new video this morning for new single from major-label debut

Cincinnati homeboys Walk the Moon have been tearing up the road since the release of their self-titled debut for RCA Records earlier this year, not to mention making the promo rounds all over the television dial (from the late-night chat shows to various appearances on VH1 and an MTV Unplugged set). The band is currently touring Europe with the band fun. ("We Are Young") and this morning they debuted the music video for their latest single, "Tightrope." The video is Walk the Moon's first since the stellar DIY clip for "Anna Sun," which was made even before the RCA deal was in place and continues to draw massive hits online. If you watch even a few minutes of TV a week, chances are you've already heard part of "Tightrope." The track is used in commercials for the HP Envy 4 Ultrabook. When Walk the Moon wraps up its current European jaunt, they'll perform a homecoming show Nov. 1 at the Madison Theater in Covington. The show is also the second anniversary of The Counter Rhythm Group, the locally-based music promo group that has worked with WTM, as well as local bands like Wussy, R. Ring and Alone at 3AM. Tickets for the Nov. 1 show are $16 and apparently moving very fast (i.e. it will sell out). Fellow local-gone-national Indie act Bad Veins opens the show. WTM hits the road for a North American headlining tour soon after the Madison show.Here's Walk the Moon's new clip.And here's the HP commercial featuring a bit of the tune.
 
 

Not a Petty Girl

How Ani DiFranco learned to stop worrying and love having a ball

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 26, 2012
One of the real changes in how Ani DiFranco approaches live performing these days may be something that, in a strict sense, isn’t actually part of what she does on stage. But rest assured, DiFranco says, it’s making a difference in her performances.  

Paul Thorn

Sept. 22 • Madison Theater

You know who there aren’t enough of in America? Guys like Paul Thorn. Thorn plays a loud version of Americana, a bluesy, Southern Rock. His lyrics often illustrate stories about rough lives, hard times and rowdy women, making him a sort of funkier Johnny Cash.  

Jello Biafra

Sept. 3 • Madison Theater

1 Comment · Monday, August 27, 2012
Heroes often disappoint. But not all of them. Along with Ian MacKaye (Dischord Records, Minor Threat, Fugazi), Jello Biafra of trailblazing Bay Area Punk icons Dead Kennedys has never said, “Well, maybe just one little Burger King commercial,” or remotely toned down his pointed political poetry and commentary.
