Friday in Columbus: Moon High, Black Swans, Vug and the Stallions (+ new Moon High MP3)


MP3: Moon High – Smoke Before My Eyes

The music of mellow Columbus folksters Moon High is as warm and peaceful as those glowing orbs the band brings along to their shows. (And any extra warmth will be welcome on Friday night…) This new track follows in the same mold as Moon High’s self-titled debut, but more layered/textured, more prominent female harmony, etc. Good stuff. “Smoke Before My Eyes” and another track, “On and On,” will be on a new 7″ due out in the coming months from Akron’s Smoke Signals (Main St. Gospel, Buffalo Killers).

You can also catch Moon High and The Black Swans (plus Vetiver and the Super Desserts) next Saturday (1/16) for the Ohio Winter Folk Festival at Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio.

Death Cab for Cutie in Columbus Poster by Clinton Reno

Last night’s Death Cab for Cutie show was a lot of fun, even as the outdoor show got colder and colder as it went on. The band seemed more energetic than I’ve ever seen them, and they busted out some old songs that made a lot of people happy.

Speaking of happy, Clinton Reno’s new Death Cab for Cutie poster from the show is pretty sweet. Lots of subtle references to Death Cab songs all over the place. Click here to purchase.
