It’s officially fall and with all the summertime music festivals wrapping up for the year that means that many of the music venues in town are getting more shows for the coming months. One of those venues is MOTR and on the night of October 13th, there will be a solid lineup of some great garage rock acts that you don't want to miss seeing--In The Pines and Town Criers.
Opening up the show is Town Criers. Traveling to Cincinnati all the way from Chicago, Town Criers are a four-piece band made up of Andre (vocalist), Kevin (drummer), and Scott (guitarist). The band's formation has interesting beginnings with Andre and Kevin forming the band when they both met while attending a Post Animal concert. Shortly after they began jamming in their friend's garage where guitarist Scott, who dug their sound, showed up and started playing with them. Currently, the band is extremely young with only a six-song EP that came out this year. They sound a lot like those 60’s garage rock revival bands like Pop Empire, The Harlequins, and The Nude Party. They are definitely a band that will get you moving and your feet tapping.
Headlining the show is local band, In The Pines. Formed in 2015, the band consists of Charlie Horn (guitar), Michael Shular (guitar/vocals), Alex Dungan (drums), Patrick Zopuff (bass/vocals) and Graham Holthaus (alto saxophone). Currently, with one full-length album out titled Mirror of Evolution and the band releasing a new single just a couple a months ago, it looks like that may soon be changing. The band has had a lot of success. They have played music festivals like Live On Short Vine, as well as being written about on local music sites like Cincy Music, and are currently booked to play one of the first shows at the newest Cincinnati music venue, Top Cats.
When listening to their music there are elements of metal, alternative, indie, blues, jazz, as well as hip-hop, in some instances. I would say they are a mixture of bands like Stoop Kids, Oasis, and Twin Peaks. These guys are of the most unique sounding bands in Cincinnati and are a band you don’t want to miss seeing live.
If you find yourself bored on the night of October 13th and are in the mood to hear some great music, you should do yourself a favor and head down to MOTR and check out some awesome garage rock. While you're there, come say hi to us at the show; Inhailer will be there and like you, we don’t want to be bored on a Saturday night as well.
