Last week brought a slew of great concert announcements to the Columbus area including some pretty big exclusives to the Central Ohio area. Saul Williams will appear at Rumba Café on Tuesday, September 29 for a spoken word performance. Neon Indian will be bringing terminally chill vibes to A&R Music Bar on Thursday, October 22nd. And then we have some amazing shows on favorable weekend nights. In what I hope will be the first of some off dates from Chicago’s Riot Fest (Speedy Ortiz please!), Superheaven will play Double Happiness on Friday, September 11th along with Have Mercy, Dead Leaves, Things Fall Apart and Waiting. Finally, in what I will go ahead and predict is a far in advance sell out for Starwood Presents, stoner retro rock heroes Graveyard will be making their only Ohio appearance at Ace of Cups on Friday, December 4th. This is only the band’s second Columbus appearance after an opening slot at the LC Pavilion as part of the Missing Link tour featuring Clutch and Mastodon earlier this year. Seeing any of these artists in these intimate settings is sure to a be a face melter.

Fall and beyond is shaping up to be a great concert season in Columbus, who are you most looking forward to seeing?
