In the annals of jam bands and jam history moe. has a special place. They have a dedicated fan base that isn’t just off season Dead heads or Phish fans. They have a long standing series of their own festivals in Upstate, New York, both ‘moe. down’ and ‘snoe. down’ which along with Phish was a revolutionary concept for modern festivals

A Special Evening with Jeff Tweedy: Cincinnati Music Hall

Wednesday night, the Wilco front man played to a crowd of what seemed to be longtime fans of his. Fans from the Uncle Tupelo days, to diehards of Wilco, and those who may even have been fans of his family band Tweedy. 

Review: Ona

Ona’s no stranger to the Cincinnati music scene, even going as far to say that they look at Cincy as a second home. Each show they have done here continues to grow in size along with a dedicated fan base.

Review: Tyler Childers – Madison Theater (Night 2)

From playing any show, any venue, to anyone who will listen is pretty much how it goes when you’re beginning your career. Only few actually succeed in an industry now that requires you to not only be unique, but original and have a voice that resonates with a group of people. It’s something special when you can connect with an entire region of the country let alone having fans all over the world.

Review: Eric Church

Eric Church has always been an interesting person when looking at where he stands on the country spectrum. At the beginning of his career, you could stick Church right in with the rest of modern country music, with maybe a tinge of edginess to his music. But as he’s grown as an artist, Church has begun to sit in the middle possibly helping bridge the gap between these sects.

Review: Kurt Vile and The Violators

There are some shows and some artists that you feel you just can’t miss when they come to town. That artist you feel like maybe we don’t appreciate as much now but years later will look back to their songs and work as a point of influence.
