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.
Free party in the Fireproof parking lot (2nd Ave. & High St.) on 9/12 from 2-8 p.m., with 12 bands on two stages. Artists creating live art, plus arty vendors, food and lotsa PBR, proceeds of which will benefit the Columbus Music Co-Op and the Couchfire Collective. Bands on the poster, lineup here.
Clinton Reno has done every poster for The Decemberists in Columbus, dating back from their two shows at Little Brother’s that donewaiting.com booked (that seems forever ago). Click here to purchase the new poster for just $20.
I especially love how he drew Shara Wardon of My Brightest Diamond, who is part of this tour and album:
Our main man Clinton Reno has launched a new website. The complete archive of his work is still not completely up, but a bunch of new things he has done is now there and available for your ownership.
One thing to especially note: for the first time ever, Reno has done a limited variant of a poster. This one is a Decemberists poster where he changed the colors and added some glow in the dark ink. Check it out. Oh yeah, he’s now on Facebook too. And Twitter
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.
Clint Reno did a poster for the Gutter Twins show in Cleveland, and after it was posted on Summer’s Kiss yesterday, the run is almost sold out. So if you want to buy it, you better do it pronto. Only $20.
