WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

The Tossers with Continental and Mill Creek Revelry

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 12, 2014
There are dozens of thriving “Celtic Punk” bands, but the Holy Drunken Trinity is clearly the triad of Boston’s Dropkick Murphys, Los Angeles’ Flogging Molly and Chicago's The Tossers. Of that trio, The Tossers are both the longest tenured and the least well known, and yet the sextet has amassed a slavishly loyal following and maintained a constant studio/stage presence over the past 21 years.  

Chris Knight with Ben Knight & the Well Diggers

Friday • Taft Theatre (Ballroom)

Chris Knight is a singer/songwriter who goes against the grain when it comes to what passes for talent in Nashville these days. A songsmith on par with the Darrell Scotts and Jeff Blacks of the world, Knight has little use for mainstream Country music dreck or stereotypical Americana fare.   

Jesse Dee with Honey & Houston

Saturday • Northside Tavern

It’s one thing to find inspiration in such Soul legends, but Jesse Dee’s honest, genuine songwriting and soul-drenched vocals give his tunes the same spirit and emotional heft as those originators.  

Connie Men

NYC’s Low Cut Connie has established a healthy Cincinnati following with perseverance and great shows

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 4, 2014
A decade ago, years before American keyboardist Adam Weiner and British drummer/guitarist Dan Finnemore realized their vision of incendiary Piano Rock as Low Cut Connie, Weiner made his Greater Cincinnati solo debut. Booked at the original Southgate House, Weiner found an audience unimpressed with his offerings.  

ScHoolboy Q with Isaiah Rashad

Monday • Bogart’s

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 4, 2014
Oxymoron, ScHoolboy Q’s incendiary, just-released Interscope debut, has been incredibly well received by critics for its raw musical presentation and distinctive lyrics and delivery. At press time, chart pundits were predicting it would debut high on the next Billboard album chart, if not hit No. 1.   

Amos Lee with Chris Kasper

Friday • Taft Theatre

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 4, 2014
It’s been a decade since Blue Note Records signed Amos Lee and put out his self-titled EP. Since then, the Folk/Soul singer/songwriter has yet to disappoint. With a voice that could cut through any venue’s rattle-and-rush, and lyrics and stories that seem just right coming from a former teacher, Lee hooks a finger into the listener’s shirt collar and pulls them closer.   

The Copyrights with Elway and The Vains

Sunday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 4, 2014
Since forming in Carbondale, Ill., a dozen years ago as a response to the woeful lack of Punk bands in the local scene, The Copyrights have earned a potent reputation with five acclaimed studio albums, a quartet of EPs and a handful of split 7-inch singles.  

The Ragbirds with Box Truck Rescue and Evan Ray

Friday • Thompson House

Ann Arbor, Mich., is the nexus for a lot of weird, wonderful musical behavior, and The Ragbirds are another brilliant reminder of that odd harmonic paradigm. Combining elements from a variety of sources — Gypsy Jazz, Celtic Folk, Bluegrass and Rock filtered through Middle Eastern, African and Latin rhythms — the band creates a groove-laden global Roots gumbo.  

Har Mar Superstar

Saturday • MOTR Pub

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 4, 2014
The mayor of Minneapolis declared Sept. 13, 2013 as “Har Mar Superstar Day,” in honor of a man whose soulful, hyper-sexual R&B stylings have been overshadowed by his resemblance to porn star Ron Jeremy and a stage show that includes the singer clothed in nothing more than a pair of tighty-whities.  

Royal Teeth with Chappo and Parade of Lights

Wednesday • 20th Century Theater

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 4, 2014
If this seemingly endless brutal winter has had you down in the dumps most of the season, on Wednesday a trio of bands will bring their upbeat Pop sounds to Cincinnati for an aural pick-me-up.
