If you are in the mood for catching some music hailing from the Heart of It All, this week you are in luck, as you’ve got a total of four options in the next few days.
Cloud Nothings: This Cleveland-based band has made countless trips to the Big Apple over the last few years to promote its self-titled album and 2012’s superb Attack on Memory. But with the band taking some time off to record a new record, it’s been awhile since their last gig here. They’ll be at Baby’s All Right (sic) tonight, no doubt trying out the new songs.
Sinkane: Although Ahmed Gallab was born in London and also lived in Boston and Utah, he spent his formative years and started making music in Ohio before moving to Brooklyn, so I’ve devoted lots of virtual ink to his band, Sinkane. Saturday night, they’ll be at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, where you can also shop for artisanal goods, play miniature golf, eat burritos, and drink craft beer.
Saintseneca: I’ve written about this Columbus band before, and you’ll probably be hearing the name a lot more once Anti Records releases Saintseneca’s sophomore album in April. They’re bringing their folksome brew to Baby’s All Right on Saturday.
New Bomb Turks and Nervosas: While lead singer Eric Davidson moved to Brooklyn from Columbus years ago, the New Bomb Turks’ live appearances in town have been far too rare. They’ll be joined Saturday at The Bell House by Columbus three-piece Nervosas (as well as the NYC-based Born Loose) for what should be a raucous evening.
