1207 Returns to OTR

A new music venue is opening in OTR!

It is called "1207" - a throwback to the original venue from the 1990's.

Located just upstairs from Cincy by the Slice, Venomous Valdez - a regular friend of the show says it will be a "little room with an emphasis on Americana/Folk/Jazz/Blues/Indie Rock."

The "soft opening" will be this Thursday, December 13th.
