3/29 – Plaid Room Records, 120 Karl Brown Way, Loveland, OH
3/30 – MOTR Pub, 1345 Main St, Cincinnati, OH, 9pm, 21+, Free

The Right Now is proud to announce their third full-length release Starlight due out February 24th. Branching out from their traditional soul-revivalist mode, Starlight pushes the bounds of The Right Now’s style. While soul and r&b undertones continue to lay the foundation for each arrangement, disco and pop elements emerge into a fresh, diverse sound. With some personal—and personnel—changes, the band took their time with the follow-up to 2012’s Gets Over You. They found that getting the right sound was more important than rushing out the music.

Even though there’s more than 500 miles between Columbus, OH and New York City, the roots of Huntertones and the rapid pace its band members have skyrocketed into the national spotlight, there’s a seamless musical bond between the two cities for the emerging ensemble.

On the Northampton, MA-based band’s latest, Friends Share Lovers (out June 3rd on Signature Sounds), And the Kids examines blurred boundaries in close-knit relationships.   Read more

Founded by Village Voice icon Greg “Ionman” Tate and co-led with monster groove bassist Jared Michael Nickerson since 1999, New York City’s Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber is a territory band, a neo-tribal thang, a community hang, a society music guild aspiring to the condition of all that is molten, glacial, racial, spacial, oceanic, mythic, antiphonal and telepathic.  Rolling Stone calls them “a multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis’ On The Corner, the slash-and-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrix’ moonwalk across side three of Electric Ladyland.” Read more
