Nashville-based pop-punk indie band Bully brought their 90s-tinged garage rock to Columbus’ Ace of Cups for a surprisingly low-key sold-out show on Friday night. Riding the wave of critical praise over their debut LP, “Feels Like”, Alicia Bognanno and company delivered a fairly short but satisfying set packed full of crunchy rock riffs and screeching […]
The acoustic guitar marvel will arrive in Columbus on April 30 as one of the stops on his "The Next Chapter" Tour.
When I was 25, I woke up one day and convinced myself I should learn to play the guitar. You see, it was 2001. John Mayer was on every radio station imaginable singing about his quarter-life crisis (I could relate…), Jack Johnson had become the new sensitive, swoon-worthy troubadour of the moment, and you couldn’t […]
The alt-rock singer, songwriter and producer joined the talented CSO at the Ohio Theatre for a memorable Saturday night as part of the BravoPops! series
A bearded Ben Folds walked onto the Ohio Theatre stage Saturday night, joining his symphonic collaborators for the evening as the capacity audience cheered and applauded zealously.

Upon hearing the opening notes of “Mahogany Hall Stomp”, the lead track from Sammy Miller and the Congregation’s EP Say, Say, Say, I smiled wryly. When the band wrote to me last month and asked me to preview their back-to-back shows at The Refectory and Dick’s Den on April 7th, they described themselves as purveyors of […]
The melodic Toronto-based indie pop outfit will perform a headlining show at Woodlands Tavern tonight.
Returning from a set of dates in their Canadian homeland with Vancouver prog-pop band The Zolas and an appearance at SXSW last month, Toronto’s Fast Romantics will play a headlining show tonight (April 5) at Woodlands Tavern. Their latest single, “Animal”, pairs piercing synths with Matthew Angus’ soaring lead vocal – which is especially excellent […]
Genevieve Schatz, formally of Company of Thieves and currently the happiest looking person on the planet, brought her infectiously radiant smile and volcano-dipped hair to the A&R Bar to bring a little warmth during a winter-in-April Monday night in Columbus. An intimate but healthy crowd braved the early spring chill as Genevieve took center stage […]
