Woodward Theater, 1404 Main St, Cincinnati, Ohio

Utilizing off-the-beaten-path tunings, Ohio Knife’s Jason Snell brings raspy, two-toned vocals and spooky, soulful, trashy guitars as Joe Suer drops an ass-load of low-end drums and Scotty Wood provides all the thumping low-end bass you could ever wish for in rock.


Ohio Knife’s new album Scalp Or Be Scalped will be available October 21st on vinyl, CD and digital formats. Read more
