Top o’ the evening to ya. Can you believe how late it stayed light tonight? Other than the car wrecks, Daylight Saving Time is the best.
Speaking of car wrecks, congrats to my beloved Xavier Musketeers for backing into the NIT like Jim Rockford eluding the bad guys.
That’s OK, though, I’m sure the entire Tri-State will get behind the… Wright State Raiders?
OK, enough sporty-sports talk, let’s get to the music:
Monday, Little Feat’s Waiting for Columbus tour comes to the Taft, with opener Ida Mae. And Rob Schneider’s daughter (Elle King) plays Bogart’s.
Sammy Rae & Friends play Memorial Hall on Tuesday
Wednesday, Manchester Orchestra plays Ovation, and Sam Bush is at Ludlow Garage.
Thursday is St. Patrick’s Day – here’s a public service announcement:
List member Howard Cohen recommends this particular brew:
If you’re looking for tunes that evening, Ludlow Garage is hosting An Evening with J.D. Souther – all the hits, some of the stories.
Friday, 10,000 Maniacs will be at Ludlow, and Jukebox the Ghost plays Taft.
Saturday is a Jethro night.
Martin Barre from Jethro Tull will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Aqualung with a show at Memorial Hall. And David Sanborn will sax up Ludlow Garage.
A live version of a new tune from Lucius… goosebumps!
Cincy’s own Afghan Whigs have a rockin’ new tune out:
And The National’s Matt Berninger does guest vocals on a new tune from TWILM favorite Caroline Spence – mighty fine!
(If you haven’t checked out Caroline’s 2019 album Mint Condition, do so posthaste. It’s fantastic.)
Art about artists from an artist
Michael Wilson, acclaimed Cincinnati-based photographer, collaborated on a new body of work with the Visionaries + Voices community. His process, using a 4×5 format camera led to a series of intimate black and white portraits of artists with the possessions they hold most dear.
During his distinguished career Michael has worked with the likes of B.B. King, David Byrne, Robert Plant, Aaron Neville, Bill Frisell, Doc Watson, and Dr. John. See Cherished at V+V’s Northside gallery this spring to learn why Michael is known widely as a master storyteller. The exhibit runs through the end of April at the Visionaries + Voices Northside Gallery, M-F, 10a-4p.
Album Cover of the Week
We’re really diggin’ the main font… and Bob’s disco shirt, of course… but the secondary font is nearly illegible.
