COUNTY FAIR PREVIEW: Men of Gentle Birth

So. Aquabear has decided to preview one band EVERY DAY in the weeks leading up to the Aquabear County Fair on March 4-6, 2010.  In all, 15 bands will be playing this year over the course of three nights and three venues. Today marks our first entry: Columbus, Ohio’s Men of Gentle Birth. They will be joining the Fair on Saturday, March 6th at The Union.

First off. Holy crap! These guys haven’t played in several years (I believe one of their last shows was the 2nd annual Aquabear County Fair at Casa Cantina in 2008), and have remained a favorite of mine and many others too. Aquabear considers it an honor that MOGB has decided to get back together at our little County Fair, and we couldn’t be more excited.

If you haven’t seen Men of Gentle Birth before you really need to be at The Union on Saturday, March 6th. Seriously.

And instead of trying to describe how much I love their music, watching the video below of a badass show downstairs at The Union about four years ago…
