For well over a decade, Tim Pritchard has been a figure of Dayton, Ohio’s historic music scene. These days, he’s fronting a new folk-rock band called Tim Pritchard & The Boxcar Suite. The group recently released the gorgeous and plaintive It Shall Be Revealed and is leaving the Gem City more and more.
While The Boxcar Suite certainly possesses folk elements, the music steers clear of cliché methods employed by many in this camp. It Shall Be Revealed is not trite Americana, but rather a collection of graceful songs influenced by time-honored traditions.
Broken, melancholic, and beautiful, Tim Pritchard & The Boxcar Suite sound like Richard Buckner fronting a heavier-hitting Byrds. There is no reinventing the wheel on It Shall Be Revealed and that’s exactly what gives the album its curative nature.

Through good times and bad, Used Kids Records has managed to survive in a world where record stores are closing at an alarming rate. The campus landmark has made it through a fire, competition from both independently-owned stores as well as national franchises, and the on-set of the digital age where consumers can purchase new music with a click of a button and never have to venture into a brick-and-mortar store.
On Saturday, the store celebrates it’s 26th year of being in business with a full day of live music, free pizza and special deals (26% off all used inventory). BYOB welcome (but PBR is a sponsor!!!).
Here’s the lineup (Times are subject to change):
1:00 Total Foxx
2:00 Outer Spacist
3:00 Nom Tchotchkes (Dan Dow, Greg Hall, David Banbury and Eva Owen)
4:00 Log (rare reunion show and potentially the final performance for the band)
5:00 Fort Shame
6:00 Betty Machete & the Angry Cougars
7:00 The Girls!
So Red Bull recently launched Soundstage, a bilateral video blog meant to assist emerging artists to a new level of notoriety based on public interaction and strategic industry recognition. Yesterday, Mount Carmel posted their session on their Facebook page… a 12+ minute video that juxtaposes their assiduous dedication to their occupation (self-started dumpster company) and their craft (blues rock) with their uncomplicated mentality on being a band.
“We had no expectations and we felt in our hearts what we were doing was important to us, at least… There are points in your life where having that helps you move along. ” – bassist Pat Reed
“You shouldn’t join a band to be successful, to be famous. You should join a band because you like playing music.” – drummer Kevin Skubak
“No matter what, I’m doing this ’til I’m 60.” – singer/guitarist Matt Reed
Watch the whole piece above, complete with yet another quality Lost Weekend cameo.
Mount Carmel’s autumn dates supporting NOLA-based Down and Warbeast to be announced soon.

Typically we try to post previews for upcoming Columbus shows a day or two before show date. We feel this serves as a final reminder and if it’s a band that you already know about and/or like, you’ve heard about the show some other way before we post. However, some of you probably don’t visit Donewaiting every day or follow us on Facebook or Twitter. Maybe you only visit once a week.
On Friday, I posted a preview for the Scott Lucas and The Married Men show. The attendance for that show was abysmal (that’s a whole other post!). On Monday, somebody that I’m sure would have gone to the show emailed to ask a question about the opener. This person didn’t realize that the preview was for a show that had happened the day before and, rather, thought the preview was for a show happening THIS Sunday.
So let me ask you this, readers: When is the best time for us to post a show preview? A day or two before the show? A week before the show? As soon as we learn that a show has been booked? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section (or on Facebook).
Human Cannonball & Moon High played Dayton’s South Park Tavern last Saturday night. The venue rests on the outskirts of South Park Historic District – the old company community of National Cash Register (NCR). The area – once known as Slidertown – was built up and beautified at the direction of NCR founder and hothead John H. Patterson. He’s a highly fascinating character that changed the world as we know it. Look into it sometime.
After Monkey With Bomb’s opening set (which I unfortunately missed), Moon High took to the stage, playing their lovely set of placid-folk-rock. Everything this band does is anti-pomp. It makes you feel like things are gonna be all right.
Human Cannonball is fronted by now-Columbus resident and Dayton native Jesse Remnant of Southeast Engine. The band is comprised of seasoned and spirited Dayton players. HC banged out a dozen or so pop-folk gems and duly wowed the crowd. At evening’s end, everyone was wanting more.
I took some shitty photos with my phone to post here. Also, as a disclaimer, I play with Jesse in Southeast Engine, but that band has nothing to do with Human Cannonball. More than anything, I want to support Columbus acts as they head to my hometown of Dayton, OH.

Found this on Ticketmaster.com this morning.
Does this mean Comfest is moving to the Alrosa Villa? Does this mean the theme this year is centered around Juggalos?
