Christopher Sanders, owner of Nightshade Ink

Shiny and the Spoon: Box of Bullets

Shiny and the Spoon: Amber Nash, Pete Brown, Matt Frazer and Jordan Neff

I've been doing this local music review gig for almost a year now and I have learned that trying to produce one piece each week can be a very interesting challenge.  

It seems like just about every band in town locks themselves away throughout the winter to hibernate in their separate recording studios and to work on a new release.  Then in spring, like the crocuses, daffodils and irises in my wife's flower garden, there is suddenly a colorful explosion of new music and I find myself weeks - if not months - behind in reviewing some band's 'new' release.

LaunchCincy va Español

The Greater Cincinnati Independent Business Alliance (CiNBA) is partnering with Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati to initiate LaunchCincy Juntos, a program designed to help generate small business opportunities for Greater Cincinnati's growing Hispanic community.

In neighborhoods like Price Hill and Carthage, CiNBA has begun a pilot program in conjunction with Price Hill Will and Catholic Charities of Southwest Ohio's Su Casa Center to present a series of workshops that encourage working cooperatively, promote community involvement and provide Spanish speakers with the tools they need to start their own businesses.
