local bands


I love that the album cover for ShowYrTeeth shows a person immersed in a bathtub of glittering sludge inside a dilapidated room that looks like an abandoned industrial warehouse somewhere.  It is this combination of glitzy and gritty that exemplifies the sound and style of The Kickaways. ShowYrTeeth is a tantalizing mixture of glam with a touch of 'the ultra-violence.'

ADM: A Delicate Motor

Nov 5, 2013

I have a very love-hate relationship with technology.  On one hand, it is an amazing tool that has revolutionized how we view the world and each other.  It has allowed us to create amazing new things and paved the way for new inventions that can make the world a better, safer and healthier place.

However, it is so dreadfully easy to become dependent upon it that, when it fails, we can find ourselves virtually crippled and sitting in the dark, waiting for the lights to come back on.

Ironfest IV

Tonight is the opening of Ironfest IV at The Southgate House Revival.

Ironfest is an all-out, no-holds-barred local band rock-fest put together in honor of the late "Iron" Mike Davidson who was a huge supporter of, and contributor to, the local music scene.

The 2-day event features 35 bands, all from the Greater Cincinnati community who have come together to pay tribute to Mike and to help raise money for his family.

As a special Halloween treat, from the forthcoming album Dead in Ohio, here is "Predisposed," a single from Cincinnati's Formerly Ghosts.


In September of 2012, Caitin Behle of Each Note Secure called The Yugos “one of the most fun bands in Cincinnati.”  Now, just over a year later, that title appears to still be securely in their hands.

The Yugos’ second album, Life is Awesome and Then You Live Forever from Best Friend Records, is a bouncy, rollicking bombastic and rhythmic party full of good times, positive energy and great music.

One More Girl on a Stage

Oct 24, 2013

This weekend the 'One More Girl on a Stage' music festival organized by local musician, Kelly Thomas, makes it return.

The festival takes place at by 6 venues, features 46 acts, and highlights female musicians in our area.

On Saturday, October 26th, minds will be expanded and doors to perception will be opened as Mayday in Northside hosts the 2nd Annual Cincy Psych Fest. Psych Fest is a celebration of music designed to engulf the listener in a gooey-sticky cluster of psychedelic imagination.

Magnolia Mountain is a Jack Daniel’s and Budweiser band in a town made for craft brew and Buffalo Trace -- and that seems to be just fine by them.

The Hiders: Temenos

Sep 27, 2013

If it is true that you can be judged by the company you keep, then The Hiders’ Billy Alletzhauser is in a great place.

Much like fellow Ass Pony Chuck Cleaver, Alletzhauser has found a second family in The Hiders, and Temenos, the 4th full-length release from the group showcases amazing talent and depth.


Roberta Schultz is a member of the local folk group, Raison D’Etre.  She dropped by the studio to talk with Lee Hay about their upcoming concert at The Carnegie in Covington, Kentucky on Thursday, October 3rd at 7:30pm.  The concert’s part of the Carnegie in Concert series and is entitled, “Swing Canaries, Harmony Sisters and Folk Divas.”
