Tin Armor played their first hometown show since returning from tour this past Wednesday at Carabar! If you missed this great show you’ll get another chance tonight to see Tin Armor at Zenos. Tonight’s show is with Big Eyes, P.S. Eliot and Delay so don’t miss it!
Reuniting for the first time in 20 years to celebrate the eighth year of Columbus Discount Records’ existence, the True Believers are:
I’ll spare you my own version of the True Believers’ back story and instead point you to a description (complete with Amrep corrections) here and a 2005 interview with Mike Rep. Suffice it to say, it’s a pretty big deal that these guys (and girl) are reuniting in two days. Leave it to CDR. Accompanying the True Believers will be the Guinea Worms, Unholy Two, Altered States of the United Snakes and Jeff Fernengel. The show starts at 10pm, and (like all Carabar shows) it’s free.
In related news, Nudge has his own YouTube channel and has been uploading all sorts of insane videos for your viewing pleasure, from an hour-long 1992 V3 show to Tommy Jay and Nudge (“JayFish”) in black hoodies covering “White Rabbit” for the video camera in 2007. You can subscribe and/or check out a sampling after the jump. According to this site, some of these videos will be part of a program at the upcoming Ohio Film+Music Festival.

Details for this show were sketchy, but it’s all firmed up. Wisconsin native and Columbus ex-pat Kevin Debroux of Pink Reason tonight at Carabar (members of Psychedelic Horseshit and TV Ghost as his backing band) playing songs from Pink Reason’s new LP (cover above) and the Desperate Living EP.
Travis from (614) Magazine turned me onto the indie-dance-pop Michigan trio Stepdad led by a heavy-set, balding, heavily bearded bear going by the name of Ultramark. It’s the kind of thing the Care Bear dreams are made of. Yeah, it’s a Tuesday night but the show is a helluva lot cheaper (ie FREE) than what you’d pay to see like-sounding acts like MGMT and The Passion Pit. Continue reading →
