Dayton, Ohio funk legends The Ohio Players will make an extremely rare and special appearance this weekend at the Downtown Dayton Revival Fest. Best known for their hit “Love Rollercoaster” (later sabotaged by the Red Hot Chili Peppers), The Ohio Players have had an immeasurable effect on the funk, soul, rap, and hip-hop communities. Here is a video of them performing on Midnight Special in 1975. Phenomenal.
Downtown Dayton Revival Fest takes place this Saturday & Sunday, September 8 & 9 in the heart of downtown Dayton. Also slated are Guided By Voices – another set of Gem City sons sitting in the annals of music history. GBV will make a progressively infrequent classic-lineup appearance, alongside performances by Heartless Bastards, Motel Beds, Buffalo Killers, The Werks, Rusted Root, Guster, and 2012 headliners Train and John Legend.
2012 is the inaugural year for the Downtown Dayton Revival Fest. DDR has a total of 37 acts performing over a two day span. There will be three stages near historic Memorial Hall in downtown Dayton. Admission is $75 for a two-day pass. You can purchase tickets here and find more information at:

Bloggers/journalists are the worst thing. Oh man. i mean do you really think anything you have to say is more important than the thing I’m in the middle of? Like I give a fuck bout your website. I was in the middle of something important before you oh so kindly interjected. Maybe there was a reason your interview requests weren’t granted. Fuuuuuck.
Oh hey how’s it going? I’m feeling better thanks for asking. I meant to do this last week but after going to see that “Paranormal Activity” pos@Studio 35 and purchasing Them Crooked Vulture tickets upon arriving home, I awoke on Tuesday morning feeling as though I was hit by a Mac truck. That being said, I had no motivation to do anything so I decided to neatly(weakly) wrap up two weeks of shows at one go. I’m talkin Built to Spill, ipps, Buffalo Killers, Brainbow, The Lindsay, Gil Mantera’s Party Dream, Jemina Pearl and some website that makes Cringe look like Pitchfork. You know what to do.
