Matt Ellis Matt Ellis Review: CD102.5 Summer Festival 2015

Clear sky, temperatures in the 80s and thirteen national bands playing to a packed audience lounging around on the LC’s lawn. Yup, It’s that time of year again when CD102.5 throws its annual Summer Festival celebration of future musical stars along with a couple of bands that have been around almost as long as the […]

Concert Review: Gin Blossoms & Fastball at The LC

Matt Ellis Matt Ellis Concert Review: Gin Blossoms & Fastball at The LC

I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t get just a little bit giddy when Saturday night’s Fastball and Gin Blossoms concert was announced months ago. I’ve seen both bands several times and even that one a few years back when they were on the same bill together. Honestly, the only major negative I […]

The band launched their first EP back in 2010, followed it up with a second in 2011, and released a string of singles since then. And now, after two years of work, the band has dropped the […]

Walker Evans Walker Evans New Commission Proposed to Take Columbus Music to the National Stage

Many locals would agree that Columbus has a vibrant and exciting music scene. But Columbus is still a far cry from the Nashvilles, New Yorks and Seattles of the world. Thankfully, a local initiative called “How to Build A Music City” is working to change that. The group hosted its first event last August, gathering music […]

Review: Dashboard Confessional & Third Eye Blind at The LC

Matt Ellis Matt Ellis Review: Dashboard Confessional & Third Eye Blind at The LC

There’s really nothing that can beat seeing musically irrelevant bands that time kinda forgot on the LC’s outdoor stage. I say that sincerely. The past few years has seen some of my favourite bands from yesteryear tossed back up onto a stage to belt out summertime friendly radio hits to a big green hill full […]
