Radar Blips: 1/16 – 1/22

Welcome to Radar Blips, where I quickly highlight three shows that catch my eye. Go see a show and if you got a three-day weekend because of the MLK holiday, I’m super jealous.

1. Pomegranates w/Volcanoes | Wed 1/18 | The Firebird

Soak in the indie-rock of the Cincinnati band, bringing in the local duo Volcanoes to kick things off.

2. Jack’s Mannequin | Thur. 1/19 | The Pageant

I admit that after seeing JM twice in a week over the summer between Warped and Kanrocksas, I was a little burnt out. But now that I’ve had some time to spend with the new album, People and Things, I’m pumped again to see (and shoot) Mr. McMahon.

And… a trio of local shows on Friday!

Dots Not Feathers, Via Dove, Palace | Fri. 1/20 | Off Broadway

Killer lineup and the sweet sweet tunes of DNF.

Superhero Killer | Fri. 1/20 | Cicero’s

The local soul crew and the Loud Label invite you out party it up as they release their debut EP.

FarFetched release party | Fri. 1/20 | 2720 Cherokee

Celebrate the compilation release of the new FarFetched art/music imprint with performances by Adult Fur, 18andCounting and a whole lot more.

Radar Blips: 11/28 – 12/4

Welcome to Radar Blips, where I quickly highlight three shows that catch my eye. Go see a show and hook me up with your Thanksgiving leftovers.

Deas Vail | Wed. 11/30 | Cicero’s

The Russellville indie popsters just put out a new album back in October and Cicero’s will be a great place to hear them perform the new tracks live. RIYL Mae and Copeland.

Born Ruffians w/US English | Thurs. 12/1 | The Gargoyle

The Gargoyle PR crew seems awfully quiet this semester, so don’t forget to mark your calendar for the arrival of this Canadian indie rock band. US English (James & Brea from the Luminary Arts) opens and I’ve been dying to see them too.

Trout Fishing in America | Sat. 12/3 | Off Broadway

I remember seeing them in high school and it’s a hard name to forget. Bring the kids along for a special afternoon show from the folksters.
