Chris Reebie's Profile

Youth Lagoon at Washington Park for MPMF

Do me a quick favor. Imagine Mr. Herbert from Family Guy. You know, the old man with the whistle-tinged lisp who’s always ever-so-uncomfortably pining over Chris Griffin. Next, imagine this same old man fronting a solo indie rock project (stick with me here). Now, imagine he goes so far as to put...

It’s the end of summer, and you know what that means…

It’s time for the annual underground, do-it-yourself, insert adjective here gathering known as Cropped Out. Hosted by Cincinnati’s brother from a southern mother (a.k.a. Louisville), Cropped Out specializes in highlighting all the hidden gems from the local and regional music and arts...

A Laid-Back Evening with Kurt Vile and the Violators

With five solo albums currently under his belt, Kurt Vile has become somewhat of a lo-fi icon. His solo work has been applauded by both critics and fans alike, with each release building upon the last. His style has been described at times as lackadaisical, almost meandering. This most likely...

Snowmine Playing Grammer’s Stage at MPMF

The phrase “Laminate Pet Animal” is actually a palindrome. More specifically, a phrase that’s spelled the same backwards as it is forwards. From one end to the other, it’s fairly consistent. The same can’t be said for the Snowmine album of the same title. Their 2011 release - Laminate Pet...

Vandaveer Set to Play MPMF

Vandaveer’s most recent album - Oh, Willie, Please … - saw the band treading down some familiar, while at the same time unfamiliar territory. Familiar in the sense it contained the dark themes and moods they’ve become known for. Unfamiliar in the sense that the album is comprised almost...

Oberhofer Set to Play Bunbury Music Festival

Over the course of the last few years, Oberhofer - and their vowel-obsessed indie pop sound - have gone from low-budget basement project to full-fledged touring band. Their story starts in the Northwest, where Brad Oberhofer – the band’s lead singer and main creative force – began writing...

Margot and the Nuclear So & So’s are nothing short of amazing

Margot and the Nuclear So & So’s have evolved a bit since the simultaneous release of 2008’s Animal! and Not Animal. They’ve relocated to a new city, lost a few members (while gaining a few new ones), and taken their sound in a bit of a different direction. But despite these changes,...

Father John Misty at 20th Century Theatre Tuesday

Most are well aware that Father John Misty was – in a former life – the drummer for Fleet Foxes. What’s surprising, though, is that a former drummer for Fleet Foxes – a band many view as the sonic equivalent of Sleepytime tea – can actually tear up the stage something fierce when given...

An interview with Vincent DiFiore of CAKE

CAKE has been touring and recording for more than two decades now without ever really getting pinned down to one particular sound or genre along the way. Their most recent album,Showroom of Compassion, debuted at the top of the Billboard charts – a first for the band. They’re currently touring...
