Paramore Returns to Cincinnati

Anyone who's ever made it to an age above 25 knows what the hallmark of getting older and growing up is: change. And when you're doing all this changing and growing up and figuring life out, there is often particular music or a particular band that speaks to you.  90s teens had Nirvana, Pearl Jam,...

Review: "Clean Hands" by Decker

One of the best experiences in life for a music fan is seeing an artist you've never heard of before and being absolutely blown away. "Who is this? Are they selling their album at the merch table? Where are they from? How have I never heard them before??" That was me two years ago when I saw Jane...

The Appleseed Cast Tonight at tSGHR!

Tonight, Southgate House Revival is lucky to have The Appleseed Cast stopping by in the Sanctuary. This Kansas-based post-rock band has been active since 1997 and is widely considered one of the forefathers of the instrumental-heavy, emo post rock genre, having come to the game two years before...

Interview: Jeff The Brotherhood - Tonight!

Tonight, as you probably know, is the Reds opening day.  But I highly recommend that you get yourself to the Taft Theater at 8:30PM. Nashville rock 'n rollers JEFF The Brotherhood are in town and if I know anything about the type of bands Cincinnati tends to love, you don't want to miss this one....

The End of The Ocean at SGHR tonight!

Tonight in the Revival Room at SGHR, Columbus post-rock band The End Of The Ocean will be stopping by to melt faces with their particular brand of instrumental atmospherics.  From loud and pounding bass to soft and peaceful melodies, this band can do it all. They’ve been on the road,...

Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad play Bogart’s tonight!

Music is a funny thing in that the context in which it's heard often determines one's opinion of it.  You might have a deep love of a song because you first heard it during the best summer of your lifetime, but someone who lives in the same town might hate it because their first experience with it...

Local Natives play Madison Theater tonight!

If you’re bummed that the Animal Collective show got postponed until July, I know what you can do to alleviate your frustration.  You can go see Local Natives tonight at the Madison Theater.  Seriously.  Don’t believe me?  Here’s why this makes total sense: Pitchfork likened Local...

Milo Greene and Kopecky Family Band tonight at SGHR!

At the beginning of December every year, there's tons of talk about the best music that the previous 12 months had to offer. In 2012, when I asked my Facebook friends what their favorite albums of the year were one friend who I hadn't seen since college told me to check out Milo Greene's...

The Whigs Tonight at The 20th Century Theatre!

Cincinnati, your kindred souls are visiting you on Sunday.  The Whigs, a garage-rock band with a rock 'n roll heart from Athens, Georgia are stopping by the 20th Century Theatre to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and play songs from their latest release, Enjoy The Company. Not familiar with The Whigs?...

Interview: Polyenso

Earlier this week, we caught up with Alexander Schultz of Polyenso as his band was preparing to play their set in Rochester, NY.  Polyenso has had quite a trip to get to where they are, starting out as metal/post-hardcore band Oceana. Over the past few years, their sound has undergone a major...

Interview: Minus The Bear

Tonight, the Madison Theater plays host to a lineup of epic proportions, and I don't use that terminology lightly. Co-headliners Minus The Bear and Circa Survive have brought along the up-and-coming Now, Now which, in my opinion, will be one of the best nights of music in Cincinnati so far this...

The Lighthouse and The Whaler with Jukebox The Ghost Tonight!

Jukebox The Ghost, The Lighthouse and The Whaler and Matt Pond PA play The Taft tonight! What are you getting into tonight? If you like smart indie pop, your answer should be, "Going to see Jukebox The Ghost, Matt Pond PA and The Lighthouse And The Whaler at The Taft Theater."  There's lots to...
