A Late Night with Andy Frasco & The U.N.

With a Jameson bottle in one hand and a mic in the other Frasco was true to form. Smoking cigarettes and joints from the crowd, Frasco was a man of the people and fed off the crowd. When Frasco came out on stage you could see his genuine surprise, as he was greeted by a packed house of Cincinnati’s dedicated jam base. “I didn’t realize there would be this many people,” said Frasco as he sat down at his keyboard.

A Couple of Decades Under the Influence.

This coming Friday, October 18, and Saturday, October 19 you’re invited - by bassist Shaun Cooper himself - to join the band at Bogart’s in celebrating 20 years of existence. They’ve dusted off the entirety of Tell All Your Friends to play it every night of the tour, and if that’s not enough to get your emo heart pumping, they’ll flip a coin and will play either Where You Want to Be or Louder Now on Friday in its entirety along with TAYF (fingers crossed we get WYWTB on Friday, just saying). For those attending both nights, you’re going to hear all 3 albums no matter what. Oh, and you’ll hear a few other choice selections from the band’s 7 album catalog, as well. I hope you come ready to sing along.

Review: Half•Alive

Half•Alive has quickly become one of my favorite bands since discovering them earlier this year. My friends are all tired of listening to them. I know every word to every song, and I’ve watched all their videos too many times to admit in writing. Last night I was lucky enough to get to see them perform at Newport Music Hall, Columbus Ohio.
