JUST ANNOUNCED: Aquabear will continue our series of curated shows at ARTS/West in Athens, Ohio with a very special show on Monday, September 13th at 8pm! The Black Swans and Bird + Flower from Columbus will come down and join Athens’ own Caitlin Kraus for a damn fine way to spend the first night of the work/school week.
The Black Swans are kicking off the 6-week Satisfied Mind Tour tour across the south, east coast, and northeast and we are thrilled to have ’em. They are fresh off the release of “Words are Stupid” earlier this year and playing “House shows, art spaces, bars, restaurants. Acoustic trio. Mean, thirsty, bored.” Joining them will be fellow Cow-Towners Bird + Flower who played a gorgeous set at this past May’s Nelsonville Music Festival and contain members of The Black Swans, Super Desserts, and more. And finally rounding out this great night is Athens songwriter Caitlin Kraus, who has some fantastic songs to play for you all.
We March – www.myspace.com/wemarch – A great mix of dirty 80’s hardcore, crazed acid punk, and a slightly bluesy underpinning that doesn’t feel forced in any way. – by John Geek, MAXIMUMROCKNROLL
Coshocton – oculusauris.com/coshocton – Drummer Nate Scheible and Guitarist Todd Jacops used to play in the Athens, Ohio based band Small Object A. This is their new project. They will be performing an improvised instrumental set of rock and roll goodness.
Colonies – www.myspace.com/coloniesohio – Brian Koscho (Casual Future) will be performing a solo set of rumbling loops with diatribes from famous historical figures.
