Brendon Urie and his Panic! at the Disco traveling band once again descended upon the arenas of Columbus on Sunday evening, as the alt-poppers packed a very high-pitched and quite screamy Nationwide Arena for an early date upon their Pray For The Wicked tour. Support for the evening came from the New Jersey electro-pop three-piece, […]

Australian slacker-rock singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett stopped by Columbus on Saturday night for an evening of jangly power-pop guitars, downplayed apathetic vocals and a healthy dose of wry, observational, Aussie humour. A packed and sweaty sold-out Newport Music Hall played host to Barnett, who is currently touring her critically acclaimed sophomore album, Tell Me How You […]

Power-pop rockers Paramore stopped by Columbus on Thursday night with their “After Laughter” tour. It was a massive sold-out show full of high energy and bounce-along guitar riffs, rocking outdoors on a sunny Express Live! stage. Due to failings on my own part, I wasn’t able to arrive early enough to capture highly rated indie-rock […]

Table-topping Atlanta United FC defeated the home team 2-0 in front of a typically poor midweek crowd at MAPFRE Stadium. Josef Martinez opened the scoring for Atlanta as Crew SC ‘keeper Zack Steffen finally allowed his goal to be breached […]

A host of first half missed chances and the defiant woodwork of the visitors’ goal denied Columbus Crew SC from running away with Saturday evening’s game. A second half goal from New York Red Bulls meant Crew SC would settle for a point, as the match ended 1-1. Wave after wave of direct attacking football […]

Alaska’s greatest alternative-rock export, Portugal. The Man stopped over in Columbus on Sunday evening, and while many in the city were up at the north end of town enjoying the neck-pain inducing festivities of Rock on the Range, the Express Live! stage played host to a captivatingly enjoyable evening of indie psychedelic rock, an epic […]

It won’t be remembered as a classic Crew encounter, but Gyasi Zardes’ 53rd-minute game-winning goal was enough to see Columbus Crew SC pick up another win in this young season, this time over a lackluster Philadelphia Union on Wednesday evening at MAPFRE Stadium. A fairly uneventful first half came and went with only one real moment of […]
