WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?

 Australian Pop/Rock band Men At Work hit me — and many other music fans around the world — at just the right time. I was 12 when the single “Who Can It Be Now?” exploded onto the charts. I was intrigued by the group’s quirkiness, but it was singer/guitarist Colin Hay’s voice that initially drew me in.

While many bands spend years toiling around, looking for their place within the music scene, Rise Against found their niche over a decade ago. They lead the way in making mosh pit-stirring music with actual substance.

April 12 • 20th Century Theater

 Since releasing his Nick Lowe-produced classic debut, Howling Wind, back in 1976, Graham Parker keeps delivering his vintage brand of spiked lyricism and jangly Pop Rock in potent doses. Thirty-plus years into his dynamic, underrated career, Parker still stands tall among his more commercially successful peers.   

Purling Hiss with Dr. Dog

Feb. 19 • 20th Century Theatre

Officially, Philadelphia-rooted Psychedelic/Garage Rock outfit Purling Hiss consists of three members, but the brain stem of the whole affair is undoubtedly singer/guitarist Mike Polizze. The project is  the product of Polizze messing around with a grab bag of elements, from sound levels to white noise to the song structures.  

Wells to the Wall

Natalie Wells channels the Rock of the ’70s with her head firmly in the now

Some guitarists form in the womb and emerge ready to push their instrument’s limits and in turn be pushed by them, using their childhoods as a proving ground for the brilliance to follow. That is not Cincinnati’s Natalie Wells.    

Electric Avenue, Acoustic Soul

Pete Dressman’s new album taps into his acoustic roots

One spin through Pete Dressman’s new album, Vol. II, might give the impression that the Cincinnati singer/songwriter and his band, the Soul Unified Nation, are unrepentant lovers of contemporary classic Rock icons like Pearl Jam who wouldn’t be the least bit out of place opening for locally-based Psych Rock trio Buffalo Killers. And you’d be right.

People Who Need People

Jack’s Mannequin’s mere existence might be its greatest triumph

0 Comments · Tuesday, January 24, 2012
In an interview last year, frontman Andrew McMahon of Pop Rock band Jack’s Mannequin said the band’s mission was simply to get “people fired up for some new music.” That new music arrived in early October with People and Things, the third album from the group led by the piano-playing vocalist McMahon.
