MidPoint Indie Summer Series 2014 Line-up Announced

I can say for a fact that I have enjoyed every time that I made the trip to Ciny to see one of the MidPoint Indie Summer Series events.  They just announced the line-up for this summer, so pick your favorites and plan on spending a Friday night in Cincy.  It takes place at Fountain Square (downtown) at 520 Vine Street.  The series is every Friday night from May 30th to August 29th.  Food and drink vendors will be around too.  Oh, yeah… it’s free.

I’ve highlighted some of the ones I’m looking forward to including MAN MAN, The Pass w/ Islands, WHY?, Those Darlins, Moon Taxi, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah…

OutKast plays Friday night, so by Saturday, you will be craving some more hip hop.  Look no further than Louisville’s own JaLin Roze!

James Lindsey Jr. better known as JaLin Roze is a proud Louisville native. Growing up JaLin’s household was always full of music. His mother would frequently play Luther Vandros, Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur and Barry White to name a few. His first project entitled the Blouprint was an ode to one of his favorite artists Jay-Z, which was JaLin rapping his own style over Jay-Z beats. The Blouprint turned a lot of heads but it was just the beginning of the emcee’s career. His second project Few and Far Between was really where JaLin found his flow as well as found his sound with his producer Josh Larock. Few and Far Between was spearheaded by the “Taxi” freestyle which gained national attention. His third installment, The Brilliance, was the most well received of his works. Gaining honors of best mixtape of 2011 on several sites The Brilliance was perceived as a classic. JaLin is currently touring to promote his latest album GrandNationalDreams, released in 2012.

An Evening with Buster @ The Frazier Museum – 4/17 and 18

A special screening of Buster Keaton’s hilarious epic “The General” with live original soundtrack performed by The Tamerlane Ensemble (Mick Sullivan, Rob Collier, Chris Rodahaffer and Joey Thieman).

Two Nights – Thursday April 17th and Friday April 18th
Frazier History Museum
7-9pm Doors at 6.


The Tamerlane Ensemble is a continuation of the Tamerlane Trio, which viewers may be familiar with from An Evening with Poe. This performance is an instrumental set in which we’ll play an assortment of at least 9 different instruments – including banjo, mandolin, electric guitar, trumpet, and accordion. We tried to write new material that compliments each scene as well as the overall flow of the film.


The soundtrack will be a collection of a few melodies from the time period that are book-ended by original sounds drawn from traditional bluegrass, modern jazz, rock and even western swing music. In An Evening with Poe, our interpreters re-imagining the works of Edgar Allan Poe in the context of our modern world, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with the music for An Evening with Buster.
