The Woodward Theatre presents three talented groups of artists, each with their own unique brand, in a lineup that is anything but typical. See a matchup you won’t soon forget with Sylmar, TRIIIBE, and Pout!
Sylmar is a Cincy-based stoner-jazz-rock ensemble. The five-piece was formed in 2016 by frontman Brian McCullough, bassist Chase Watkins, CJ Eliasen on drums, and guitarists Luke Glaser and Dan Sutter. They quickly picked up steam in the local scene after releasing their debut LP to a sold-out Woodward Theatre in July 2017, and were nominated for the Best Indie/Alternative category in the 2017 Cincinnati Music Awards.
Brian’s passionate vocals blend with entrancing guitar melodies to really set Sylmar apart. With a sound that’s energetic and borderline psychadelic, it’s pretty much impossible to stand still during their concerts. This is a band you won’t regret seeing!
TRIIIBE (True Representation of Intellectual Individuals Invoking Black Excellence) formerly known as Blvck Seeds (Black Liberation Via Creativity and Knowledge) is an artist collective that strives for social change in Cincinnati and beyond. The four-member collective consists of the poet Siri Imani; the songstress, vocalist, and instrumentalist Aziza Love; the producer and lyricist Pxvce (Peace); and the visual artist and lyricist Jessi Jumanji. The collective won best R&B/Funk/Soul in the CMAs last year.
Activism defines TRIIIBE. The group is a big supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement and Students for Survivors. They want to show people that we all can better by leading by example. The group organizes gardening, yoga, and mediation groups to help themselves and others express themselves creatively. This performance will be entertaining and empowering, to say the least.
Pout is a pop punk band out of Cincinnati that got it's start in 2016. Caroline Beller fronts the band, and is backed up by Paul Estes on bass, Kainon Loebker on guitar and vocals, and drummer Harrison Miller. Their high-energy show will be a great way to kick off the evening. While the band doesn’t have any music officially released, you can check them out in this queen City Session produced by our friends at Bearcast Media: This diverse lineup will make for an exciting start to your weekend. These three bands are acts to get hyped about; they’re sure to make some waves both in Cincinnati and around the world. INHAILER will be there too, so be sure to come say hello!
