Concert Review: Genevieve (formerly of Company of Thieves)

Cassandra Zahran Cassandra Zahran Concert Review: Genevieve (formerly of Company of Thieves)

It’s been a great deal of time since I’ve openly cried at a concert — better yet, a great deal of time since I’ve cried. The tears I experienced during Genevieve’s set on Wednesday were not tears of discouragement, rather tears of delight and pureness. CD102.5FM Radio and Promowest presented the ultimate tear-jerker last night, […]

Concert Review: Bush

Matt Ellis Matt Ellis Concert Review: Bush

I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about seeing Bush play live for the first time 18 years. After the recent surge in 90′s nostalgia tours I was half expecting a lazy performance from a band happy to sit on it’s pile of no-longer-aired-radio-hits. Thankfully, what I, and Columbus, got was a […]

Concert Review: Gwar

Matt Ellis Matt Ellis Concert Review: Gwar

Pantomime liquid-thrash-rock band Gwar stopped into Columbus on Sunday night to deliver their trademark blend of blood-soaked speed metal from intergalactic space.

Cassandra Zahran Cassandra Zahran Concert Review: CD102.5FM Holiday Show with Alt-J and Cage the Elephant

“Twas the night of December 1st, when all through the town, Columbus folks piled into the LC, only minutes past sundown. The 102.5 banners hung on the railing with care, while Scene Teamers and DJs had high-fives to share. The Holiday Show welcomed the last month of the year, with four (inter)national acts, Mikey’s pizza and beer! A show […]
