Columbus band Mama ‘destined not to be cool’

October 17, 2014
In an attempt to shine light on local music, The Lantern’s “Columbus’ Own” is a weekly series that will profile a new Columbus band each week. Rock ‘n’ roll changed music forever. It scared the hell out of parents, teachers and politicians, and yanked open the door to new possibilities in music. But as the decades pile up, another musical breakthrough as huge as the ‘60s and ‘70s rock explosion has been substituted with an extensive catalogue of descriptors placed in front of genre roots to portray styles of new bands. Modern musicians are running out of ridiculous adjectives, buzzwords or trends to describe and influence their sound. “We’re not… Read more

October 13, 2014
As warehouse Dude Locker returns to the regular hum of band practices, Columbus’ music fans battle hangovers, and the plethora of artists nurse their (head-)bang-overs. It’s not quite confidential that Worst Kept Secret Fest 6 was another huge stride for the Columbus arts community. “This year, it was easier. We had a lot of people who we could trust working for us, and everyone had their own job and everyone did it,” said Pat Chase, one of the five heads who organized the sixth fest. “There are volunteers for the volunteers,” said James Amos, a WKSF volunteer. The event was greeted with chilly, scattered showers and overall crap weather, as… Read more

Revival of Ohio State Hempfest sees small turnout

October 13, 2014
  Ohio Hempfest set the grass of South Oval ablaze with hemp activism for the first time in five years this weekend, though its attendance was lackluster compared to past inceptions. The free music festival lasted from noon to approximately 11:15 p.m. on Saturday, short of its original slated end time of midnight. There were 15 musical performances in the Browning Amphitheater as well as 13 pro-hemp speakers and 16 vendors including one selling food and five selling glass pipes. One musical performance and two speeches were cut when attendance dwindled late in the night. “I was expecting a lot of hippies and a lot of students, but it was… Read more

Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts among acts to perform at ‘Shoe in 2015

October 7, 2014
“A festival is a living thing,” Quint Davis said. “It was born this morning, but it won’t really come alive until the people come and make it rock.” That’s Davis’ expectation for the 2015 Buckeye Country Superfest, which he is directing and producing. He heads Festival Productions, Inc. — New Orleans, a company that has put on the New Orleans Jazz Music & Heritage Festival since 1970. Beginning in 2010, Davis and his team have also organized country music “superfests,” first in Baton Rouge, La., and then in Jacksonville, Fla. That brand is set to come to Columbus in June with a lineup that includes Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Rascal… Read more

October 4, 2014
COLLEGE PARK, Md. — In the first-ever football matchup between Ohio State and Maryland, the No. 20 Buckeyes came away with a wire-to-wire victory to open their Big Ten season. OSU’s 52-24 win spoiled Maryland’s first Big Ten home game at Byrd Stadium in College Park, Md., on Saturday afternoon.

With the conference season opening against Maryland, at least one OSU player said the team treats every… Read more
