The Devil Makes Three are a three piece.

Beach Slang at Southgate House Revival

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 14:00:00 -0400

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 14:15:00 -0400

Few bands are able to transition from heaviness to subtlety, sledgehammer sound to ambience, the way that mewithoutYou has managed.

And, somehow, they’ve remained absolutely true to themselves the entire time.

Review: Michale Graves

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 10:30:00 -0400

I have to admit something. I’ve never been to a show at the Northside Yacht Club prior to the Michale Graves show. Upon walking in, I immediately noticed how small of a venue it was. I was actually excited by this as smaller concert venues usually means the show will be in an imitate setting.

Blue Wisp Big Band 2017

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 13:30:00 -0400

A jazz big band is quite a thing, something unto itself. It’s an organic unit — a molecular structure, so to speak — that happened to form over time and makes sense, as does a piano trio or a string quartet. At a certain point in the evolution of jazz, four trumpets, four trombones, five saxophones, piano, bass and drums just made musical sense and came into being.

Epic Man Food at Louder Than Life

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 12:10:00 -0400

Review: Rachel Mousie - Talk To Your Babies

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 11:45:00 -0400

Rachel Mousie releases her new album, Talk To Your Babies, on October 7th.

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 14:30:00 -0400

Interview: Fantastic Negrito

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 14:00:00 -0400

This past weekend I sat down with Grammy award winner Fantastic Negrito at Bourbon & Beyond. We talked music, comebacks and collaborations. It’s hard for me to categorize his music though my one and only attempt would be: DOPE! If by chance you have not heard his The Last Days of Oakland album I suggest you do so quick, fast and in a hurry!

Thank you, WNKU

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 13:00:00 -0400

The day we have all been hoping would never come is here. On Thursday, September 28th at 6pm, WNKU's over-the-air broadcast and online stream will cease entirely.

Review: MidPoint Music Festival

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 14:00:00 -0400

This past weekend, Midpoint Music Festival took place inside of the Taft Theatre and Masonic Center in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The venue change gave the festival a very different feeling compared to the outdoor location in Over the Rhine where Band of Horses headlined last year. The Taft Theatre / Masonic Center featured unique historical architecture that gave attendees a more refined experience and provided a centralized location for the many bands to showcase their music. Going to this festival gave me the feeling of a classy night out to the ballet or opera and exploring the different ball rooms was an adventure in its self.
