Let Us Praise

Cincinnati Entertainment Awards continues 14-year tradition of celebrating local music

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 16, 2010
The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards program is an attempt to remind local musicians that their contributions are greatly appreciated. It's also an attempt to bring together musicians (as well the non-musicians who work to support and nurture the scene) from across the local music spectrum to have an outrageously good time. Having a full bar in the room might be a factor, too, as will be in evidence Sunday night at the Madison Theater.  

NeedToBreathe

Oct. 29 • Madison Theater

0 Comments · Monday, October 25, 2010
There are plenty of influences at work in the Alternative Christian Rock of NeedToBreathe, and not all of them are musical. Brothers Bear and Nathaniel Bryant "Bo" Rinehart (named after the legendary Alabama coach) are the sons of an Assembly of God pastor and his piano teacher wife, and products of their upbringing in tiny and isolated Possum Kingdom, S.C. The band's soulful take on Blues and Southern Rock finally broke through with last year's 'The Outsiders,' which reached the Billboard Top 20 and barely missed the Christian chart's top slot.  

Michael Franti & Spearhead

Oct. 22 • Madison Theater

Michael Franti has been ruffling the feathers of the music industry for over 20 years now and he shows no signs of slowing down in the new millennium. Franti began in the mid-1980s with his first band, The Beatnigs, which scored a couple of releases on Alternative Tentacles before breaking up.  

Of Montreal's Sci-Fi Dance Party

New album delivers in a big way, taking band to Funkytown

With rampant stories regarding predatory men of the cloth, it's easy to read darker meanings into of Montreal's new album, 'False Priest.' It clearly represents of Montreal's next evolutionary step, long after beginning a gloriously lo-fi, giddily complex Pop band. He's now fronting an eclectic Soul revue, says Kevin Barnes.  

Spoon Charts Its Own Course

Back-to-back Top 10 albums haven't changed its approach

1 Comment · Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Spoon is the Pete Rose of Indie Rock: Consistently strong performers year after year, album after album, show after show. The Austin-based quartet founded by singer/guitarist Britt Daniel has been forcing its will on discerning listeners for more than 15 years now, a slow build that culminated in its last two albums.  

Not Bad at All

Bad Veins, Seedy Seeds takes top honors at rockin' CEA show

The music of Cincinnati (past, present and future) was on glorious display at Covington's Madison Theater Nov. 22 at the 2009 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards for Music. The "bar" ambiance (and Kentucky's love of smoking) kept everyone inside, though we heard many of the old "my clothes and hair smell" complaints. Fear not: Official CEA 2010 gasmasks and Hazmat suits are being produced as you read this.  

Leon Russell

May 8 • Madison Theater

Words like "icon" and "legend" get thrown around much too liberally regarding musicians, but the terms fit Leon Russell like a well-tailored suit. With his Oklahoma drawl, rollicking barrelhouse/Delta Blues piano-style and inspired songwriting talent, he was custom built for Rock success in the '60s and '70s, though his greatest successes might lie on the road ahead ... and every one will be well deserved.  

NOFX

April 30 • Madison Theater

With 12 studio albums, more than a dozen EPs and a discographer's wet dream's worth of 7-inch releases to their credit (in total accounting for close to 4 million units sold) since their Los Angeles formation an astonishing 27 years ago, NOFX is clearly one of the most successful and one of the most outrageous Indie Punk bands of all time. Just ask Fat Mike.  

Arctic Monkeys

April 9 • Madison Theater

0 Comments · Monday, April 5, 2010
Arctic Monkeys' latest album, last year's 'Humbug,' was co-produced by Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme and became the band's third consecutive UK No. 1 and U.S. Top 25 album, spawning a number of successful singles and EPs. It's only hype if it isn't true: Arctic Monkeys are well on their way to becoming one of Britain's historically great bands.
