Check out the intense video for “Peaches” by roots / rock trio Mission South:
There is a definite Black Keys / Dr. Dog feel going on here and I really dig it. Not to mention, the video is kind of awesome and dark as hell at the same time.
Did you dig the tune as much as I did? Well you are in luck, the band is offering all of their tunes for free. Yup, free. Check it out: http://music.missionsouth.com
So who are Mission South? They are a soul blues rock band straight out of DC who just dropped their sophomore release titled Migration, Vol. 2. The three members have been friends for years and spite all those growing pains many bands go throughout life, they stuck together and have dropped a pretty amazing EP.
Apparently today, they recorded a Daytrotter session. I look forward to hearing that when it releases.
Short notice, but apparently the band is playing Cleveland tomorrow night, if you dig what you hear, you should head on out to their show…if you can figure out where they are playing at. I looked all over the interwebs and could not find what venue.
Summer is coming to an end folks, but that does not mean it is over just yet.
Tonight the very talented Indiana rock/country act Murder By Death will be playing a FREE show at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum. This show will take place outside in front of the Cleveland staple and is open to everyone who attends.
I just checked the weather and it looks like it is going to be the perfect evening for an outdoor show. I have been getting in to Murder By Death over the years after being introduced to them through some friends of an ex of mine. At first I was not entirely sold, but the more and more I listen to them, the more I really appreciate their style. This is a band that I have been wanting to check out live for a while now. Looks like that will happen tonight.
Local rockers The Buried Wires will be opening the night off around 7pm. Make sure you get there in time to see this up and coming act. Named by Scene Magazine as a “Band To Watch” in 2010, it is safe to say they will be putting on a great show.
The FREE show is part of the Rock Hall’s Summer In The City Series and sadly, this is the last one of the year. Summer in the City is sponsored by Ohio Natural Gas, Magic Hat Brewing Company, Amtrak, KeyBank and Jim Beam.
In case you hadn’t heard, UK’s The Joy Formidable are going to be playing a show this Wednesday at the Rock Hall around 7pm.
Did I mention the show is FREE? Well, you will need to cart your booty down to Cleveland one way or another, but you get the idea.
As part of the awesome Summer In The City Concert Series, The Joy Formidable and Cleveland’s very own HotChaCha will play in front of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum to everyone who shows up. This series is a great way to check out new bands and just enjoy an evening in Cleveland for no charge. I missed the first two already this summer, but will be sure to make it to this one.
I have the feeling this is going to be one of those shows that should not be missed. I envision an all around good time already. I know some of my pals from 92.3 Radio will be there as well as other good folk.
If you have not heard any material by the three-piece, 90s rock comparable sounding, female-fronted band yet, check out some videos below. They’ve been around since 2008 and really have a sweet sound to them. Rolling Stone recently nominated them as a band to watch. Not to mention the lead female vocalist is a total fox…
(I did not know Roseanne had a cameo in this video)
I came across a new demo from a new band called Crow Bait. Not only is the band’s name awesome, but the band also features members of: Jonesin’, Iron Chic, Wax Phantom, Sister Kisser, Halfway To Hell Club & more. That right there is damn awesome!!!
