Cincinnati Alterna-Pop/Post-Punk tetrad Hot For Alice is hosting a CD release party for their new album Sirens at 9:30pm on Saturday, April 11, at The Southgate House Revival (lounge area) in Newport, KY. The event will also feature local musicians Nick Hill, Royal Holland, Elle Crash, and Founding Fathers. Admission to the show is free and guests are invited to take part in the prom-themed festivities by wearing their best (or worst) formal attire.
Hot For Alice has been playing shows in the Cincinnati area since 2011. Their sound delivers a punchy 90's essence with polished pop undertones. Their lyrics provide that overall connection of the human experience and come from the core essence of all emotions.
The band recently wrapped up production of their first full-length album, “Sirens” with Mike Montgomery at Candy Land Studios. The aptly titled album features catchy melodies that pull you in and rhythm that keeps you moving. Hot For Alice will celebrate Sirens release on April 11 at Southgate House Revival. The group’s lead singer/songwriter, Alisha Milacki, says they are “ready to release, ready to tour, and ready to share our creations.”
About the Band
The four-piece was conceived when two friends, Alisha Milacki (singer/songwriter) and Ryan Minneci (guitarist/songwriter), decided to stop talking about music and start writing it. The two had a few acoustic sessions in Alisha’s basement before inviting Jeffery Lyon (drummer) and his bongos to the mix. Not long after, the trio was plugged in, bongos were replaced by a full drum kit, and the basement became a creative incubator for the future band. Realizing they had music to share, they booked their first show where Kevin Milacki (bassist) joined them on stage and Hot For Alice was truly birthed.
