We started this feature months ago here on ENS, but with only one article so far, it’s a nice time to revive it. Here is our second “Reclaimed” feature, written by ENS contributor Dave Tobias.
Stone Temple Pilots and Cage The Elephant were in Cincinnati this week for a show at Riverbend. Our very own Keith Klenowski was on hand shooting photos and dodging Scott Weiland stage dives. Check out some of his pics of the bands below.
Brooklyn-based rock outfit The Dig has been touring the country for the last few years, winning over fans at each stop with fun, energetic live shows. Their debut album, Electric Toys, came out in June. This Saturday, they’re playing on BB Riverboats’ Belle of Cincinnati as part of River_DMF. Each Note Secure’s MaryKate Moran recently talked with Jamie Alegre, the band’s drummer, about recording without a label, a tour van break-in and more.
A big concert is coming to town at the beginning of next month and we want to send you to the show. Kings Of Leon and The Black Keys both have humble midwest beginnings, but are really getting big fan-bases in the past couple of years due to some …

Wednesday’s show at the Southgate House was a study in extremes. The music was “extreme,” yes, but it wasn’t just that. Both Japanese psychedelic-drone-metal band Boris and Chicago post-rock trio Russian Circles share an obvious affinity for powerful drums and towering stacks of vintage guitar amplifiers. However both of the groups, especially the headliner, demanded a lot of perseverance from the audience with their drastic shifts in tempo and mood.
Spoon stopped by the Madison Theater in Covington on Tuesday night on the heels of Lollapalooza, a solid performance with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon (watch the video here) and a handful of tour dates with some band called Arcade Fire. It was their first time in Cincinnati since they played Bogart’s back in 2008.
Our little boys are all growns up. Thats the way it feels to see so many people fall in love with J Roddy Walston and The Business. Finally.
