Sometimes the Bear Eats You Too: NMF 14 – Saturday & Sunday

Dealing with a bit of festival fatigue, a flat tire, and a fair amount of driving, I didn’t capture as much of the last two days of this year’s Nelsonville Music Festival as I wanted. Nevertheless, there is gold to be heard here. Crank this episode to hear sets from Motel Beds, Lucius, The No BS Brass Band, Saint Rich, Hiss Golden Messenger, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Valerie June, more Wooden Indian Burial Ground, and Shovels and Rope. You’ll also hear more from Andrew, Scotty, AJ’s beard, and Snowville Creamery’s own Warren Taylor. What more could you ask for? Songs from more bands probably. Maybe next year. Until then, enjoy the music. I’ll see you at the Aquabear Legion Pancake Breakfast and County Fair!

6 Bs and a P: Who Wants to Know? Who Wants to Know? (Season 2, Episode 20):

Well, we just couldn’t stay away long. Especially when the Browns hired a new coach THEN fired their GM and President (one of whom makes a final appearance on the show). The gang gets together in the off season to catch up on the happenings at Browns HQ, everything gets covered and most importantly Ian lets all of us know that he’s been going to the gym. And the Browns hired the guy above and his name is Jimmy Raye (Who wants to know? Who wants to know) and Brian, Brian, Ian, and Kris discuss how he scares the hell out of them. The normal 6b1p segments you love are back and a brand new game too, ‘What Would You Trade Brandon Weeden For?’. Enjoy!

Water Liars, Supernobody, Adam Remnant, and Dead Winds of Summer at The Union on Tuesday, Mach 4

Aquabear Legion loves Ohio music, but sometimes we bend the rules on hosting shows when a band from another state is as mindblowingly awesome as Mississippi’s Water Liars. On Tuesday, March 4th, Aquabear teams up with Blackout Booking and Peacock Productions to welcome Water Liars to The Union along with Athens staples Supernobody, Adam Remnant, and Dead Winds of Summer. Water Liars are fresh off the release of their self-titled third LP on Fat Possum’s Big Legal Mess label. Joining Water Liars that night will be local Athens acts Supernobody, Adam Remnant, and Dead Winds of Summer. Tickets are $8 in advance and available at Haffa’s Records in Athens, Ohio and are $10 at the door. Music will begin around 9:00pm. Here’s the event on Facebook. Help us spread the word and come out to watch a fantastic night of live music in Athens, Ohio.
