This weekend was Ubahn Festival’s third year under the streets of Cincinnati with rap superstar headliners 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Gucci Mane. Steve Aoki brought an energetic cake-throwing DJ performance to a mixed crowd of EDM and hip-hop fans. Third time is charm for Ubahn Festival seeing as how this year was the most spectacular party yet.

Review: Forecastle Music and Arts Festival

Forecastle Music and Arts Festival has been a tradition of the Louisville scenic waterfront for the last 15 years. Since 2002, Forecastle has grown into a diverse, eclectic festival that has hosted big names such as Jack White, Modest Mouse, Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, and many more.

Review: Avenged Sevenfold

Last night at Riverbend Music Center one of the greatest modern heavy metal bands, Avenged Sevenfold performed a thrilling hour and a half long show to a packed house. The first half of the set consisted of hits spanning the last decade. In the second half of the show a giant 40-foot dead skeleton astronaut descended out of the darkness of the ceiling which marked the transition to the new songs from the album The Stage.

Still Buzzing from Muse

Sunday night, during the final set of Bunbury 2017 I was reminded that Muse is one of the best bands in the world. Cincinnati needs to send the festival promoters a giant thank you card for getting this band to play Bunbury Music Festival.
