Bad Veins – Self titled album out now – Emo’s August 28th

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009


Bad Veins are a Cincinnati duo who have been around for awhile but just released their first full length album. Gold and Warm, The Lie, and The Ending, are all incredible tracks. Their sound is honest, melodic indie rock/pop. Great for sitting in traffic or people watching at the airport. I prefer the live versions (with the exception of The Lie)I’ve posted for download but the video will give a you a great idea of what these guys are all about.

Manchester Orchestra- Emo’s

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Well I drug my tired ass up to Emo’s Tuesday night for a wonderful show by Manchester Orchestra. Too bad it was right after a long weekend as it was not as enjoyable as it should of been for me. However, they were absolutly amazing and I’m so happy I made it. Their live presence and a near sell-out crowd made for a great experience. Put them on your must see list
