My posts here have been coming a little less frequently due to my work on a site that I launched in mid-August. The site, Kids Interview Bands, features my 6th grade daughter Olivia and her friend Connie interviewing bands that are passing through Columbus. The girls got their start at the Bunbury Music Festival in Cincinnati where they interviewed 8 bands including Neon Trees, Minus the Bear and Imagine Dragons. Since that time, they’ve knocked out 33 or so interviews and have 6 more scheduled in the next 10 days.
In September, the girls had a chance to talk with the UK’s Morning Parade, who were in town on tour with The Wombats (also interviewed by the girls), following the band’s Big Room performance at CD 102.5. Since that time, Morning Parade has done dates with Smashing Pumpkins and are now on the road with Anberlin who they’ll be opening for Friday night at The Newport.
Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $17 in advance, $20 day of show. IAMWE is also on the bill.
