Tonight: Caveman at MOTR Pub in Cincinnati

We here in Cincinnati are in for another treat this evening as NYC’s Caveman makes a stop in town in support of their debut album CoCo Beware.  This show closes out a solid week of national acts in the Queen City with Sharon Van Etten and Oberhofer performing last weekend.  Full of easy listening melodies and a deep drum beat, this is sure to be a special treat for those in attendance.  And of course, for all you fence-sitters, check out a live performance of “Vampirer/Old Friend” below from their Backyard Sessions performance.  If seeing this doesn’t convince you to come, well, you probably ought to get your ears checked.  As always at the MOTR Pub, this is a FREE show so be sure to get down early for a few drinks and be sure to leave your bartender a generous tip.  Hope to see you there.

Weekend Preview: Oberhofer & Sharon Van Etten in Cincinnati

Now that record store day is in the books, we in Cincinnati have the pleasure of another fabulous indie music based weekend on deck.  On Friday, Sharon Van Etten will be performing at Mayday in the Northside in support of her fabulous recent album Tramp.  One of my own Record Store Day vinyl purchases from Shake-It, the album is the first true triumph of Sharon’s young career.  Intimately emotional and heart wrenching, I’d hate to be the guy that inspired this is album, but I thank him for being around Sharon to inspire this masterpiece of sound.  Tickets are still available via TicketFly for a measly $10.  Don’t miss out as this will probably reach a sell out shortly.  Check out Sharon’s recent Tiny Desk Concert courtesy of NPR below if you’re still on the fence.

If that wasn’t enough, we have Tacoma born and current Brooklynite band Oberhofer in town on Saturday with Chicago based Young Man at the MOTR Pub in Over the Rhine (OTR).  Oberhofer is touring in support of his debut LP Time Capsules II, which Brett reviewed earlier this year.  A healthy dose of fun pop, I’ve been digging on it recently and am excited to see the show in person.  As always at the MOTR pub, this is a FREE show so get out early and have a few beers at OTR’s best music spot.  Check out Oberhofer’s Late Night debut on David Letterman below with album hit “Away Frm U” below.

Tonight: Milagres at MOTR Pub

Just a quick heads up to all of Cincinnati that Brooklyn based Milagres will be making their second stop in our great city in the last half year tonight in a return show to the MOTR Pub.  The band released their highly underrated debut LP Glowing Mouth in September of last year and has been touring in support since.  As I’m sure many of you will be taking a holiday on Thursday for Opening Day, there’s absolutely no reason not to get the most out of your day off and check out this great show on Wednesday night.

Below you can check out their hit single “Here to Stay” being performed live courtesy of great alternative rock radio station WFUV at Fordham University.  Shows usually get going between 10 and 11, and as always at MOTR, are FREE.  So come out, grab a great tasting, hoppy beer and celebrate spring.  See you there Cincinnati.
