Ballroom. That's Alejandro Escovedo's new band that also includes Ivan

Pitmon (Steve Wynn & The Miracle 3, Baseball Project, Zuzu's

Today. 8pm, $17 adv/$20 dos.
* 10/4: The next day, we're at the inaugural Bend In The River Art & Music Festival
in Lower Price Hill. We're on from 6-7pm. Come hear us and buy a beer
from guest bartenders Mayor John Cranley and Charlie Luken. Huge props
to organizer Mike Moroski for what will be a great addition to the
local cultural scene.
* Great press for our Midpoint show, including a glowing review from Brian Baker, excellent photos from CincyGroove, and a video overview from WCPO (we're 1:15 in). All
in all, it's a pretty good weekend when you play in front of a few
hundred people and get compared to REM, Old 97s, Alejandro Escovedo,
and Grant Lee Buffalo.
