WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

A City That Sings

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 3, 2013
Take a chance on the Cincinnati Men’s Chorus this week — they’re presenting ExtrABBAganza, a show devoted to the campy ’70s and early ’80s classics of Swedish Pop group ABBA.  

Midlife Crisis

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 28, 2014
The Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra concludes its 40th season on June 1 amid symptoms of classic midlife crisis. There’s no equivalent of a red Porsche, but there are serious concerns about the organization’s viability and how it might reinvent itself in a continually uncertain marketplace.

The Utley Truth

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

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 8, 2015
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

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 8, 2015
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

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.
