Article: 10 Things You Need to Know About Cleveland Music in 2018

A nice write up by Cleveland Scene for Cleveland in 2018!  Includes details on remodeling of the Agora and Rock Hall, a festival lineup, as well as some movers and shakers in the area (both on stage and off!).

Fitz & the Tantrums (7/6/11)

"At the beginning of each year, we usually profile about a dozen bands that are worth checking out in the next year. Maybe they've got a new album coming out, or they're headlining some interesting event at Nelson. Maybe they're just so darn interesting that it would be irresponsible not to write about them in our pages.

This year, though, we're changing things up a bit. We'd like to present to you a more conceptual outlook on 2018, in hopes that we can corral even more good music into this annual endeavor. With that, we'd encourage you to keep an ear tilted toward these 10 things you should know about Cleveland music this year."

Video Day #tzachill

SZA just put out a Solange-directed video for The Weekend. A thoroughly enjoyable video (and song) by Tourist for Hush.  Sufjan Stevens has a new video out for his song Mystery of Love for the movie Call Me By Your Name.

Bonus: The video for Yung Lean’s Red Bottom Sky caught my attention.  While his sad boy aesthetic isn’t totally my thing, this song and video are rather compelling.

Article: Cassette tapes make a comeback

I’m still not believing it.



"'We still put out tapes because it's an affordable way to put out music, for an artist in a climate of increasing and excruciating vinyl costs,' said Matt Flag from the record label Beat Concern. 'I think they look nice, they sound great and they can be made in small quantities for very little cost,' he said."
