September Concerts

“No good shows ever come to Columbus.” Isn’t that what people say all the time? Cary Whitt put together this handy, dandy calendar with shows of note. As you’ll see, there is a nationally-touring artist performing in Columbus every night of September other than September 20 (or, at least Cary hasn’t identified one). Note: Ian Hunter was scheduled to open for the J. Geils Band at the LC on the 13th but that show has been canceled. Also, there are some show listings for Cincinnati (Bogart’s) and Cleveland (House of...

Show’s On, Tune In, Get Out: 8/28 – 8/30

By Ben Dahl Musicians, music appreciators, and night life junkies, here is your weekly guide to the Columbus music scene. Whether you’ve got a rock n’ roll heart or a craving for heavy EDM drops, there is something for you. Check out what Columbus has to offer you this weekend. EDM/ELECTRONIC For the ravers out there, Friday night get you and your neon over to Skully’s for Kinetic, an EDM Dance Party. The DJ’s include 12th Planet, Antiserum, Attak, and others. 12th Plantet collaborated with Skrillex for the hectic song “Right On Time” and with Antiserum for the song “Bass Salt.” Friday at Skully’s will be full of slow-moving, heavy, liquid bass. Don’t expect a Tiesto or Hardwell type of show. These DJ’s drop the pop element to their sets and perform straight, raw EDM. ROCK The rock scene in Columbus, as always, is rolling like a stone. Friday night there are a number of shows to consider. First off, Mr. Fahrenheit and the Loverboys will be playing all your favorite Queen songs at King Avenue Five. Their singer has even made the commitment to the Freddie Mercury mustache, so you know they are an authentic tribute band. Next, over at the Rumba Café, The Delta Saints will be playing with The Patrick McLaughlin Band. McLaughlin and his band will start the night off with some Lynyrd Skynyrd inspired, southern rock. Then the Delta Saints will take the stage, crank...

Show’s on, Tune in, Get out: 8/21-8/23

Musicians, music appreciators, and night life junkies, here is your weekly guide to the Columbus music scene. Whether you’ve got a rock n’ roll heart or a craving for heavy EDM drops, there is something for you. Check out what Columbus has to offer you this weekend. COUNTRY If you like country music here’s what you’re doing this weekend. Friday night there are two winning options. Behind door number one, The Avett Brothers will be playing the LC. These guys project nothing but positive energy. Having seen them perform, I will vouch for their integrity live. Their sound is a culmination of blues rock, two tablespoons of Bob Dylan, and a pinch of bluegrass. Also, be sure to catch the pre-show act, Fox Valley Harvest, at the A&R Music Bar next door to the LC. Behind door number two, Granger Smith will be playing The Bluestone with Earl Dibbles Jr. This is your familiar, down-home type of country music. Smith will remind you about the magic and joy of simple things in life. Girls, cars, and driving down those backroads to your favorite songs. Saturday there is a break in the concert action, but that doesn’t have to stop a true cowboy like you from making it out on the town. Come join the fun at Nyoh’s Buckeye Bar and Grill. Enjoy their deals like dollar cans of beer...
