Cincinnati @ SXSW

South by Southwests has FINALLY posted the an initial listing of bands that will be playing this years festival. It's a long list, and I think some more are still to be added. I am officially excited to get down there.

From Cincinnati this year the list is a little shorter than in the past:

Peter Adams and the Nocturnal Collective
Buffalo Killers
The Sundresses

I will post more later on some of the other favorites I'm looking forward to seeing!

New Restaurant/Bar Openings

Some new restaurants are opening up around town.... thought you may have missed it:

Southview - Opens Feb. 13th at Newport on the Levee - with an eclectic southern menu like vanilla bean cornbread

Sully's Sports Bar - Opens Feb. 15th opens at the former Redfish location at 7th and Elm

Jalapeno's also opened downtown at 7th and Elm.



Main Street Transition?

Main Street Entertainment District to be soon known as Main and Twelth Street Theater District? Combine the art galleries on North Main, the Art Academy at 12th and Jackson, Ensemble Theater at 12th and Race, Know Theater on Jackson St. and the recently announced permanent home of New Stage at the former Jekyll & Hyde's. It's all really exciting for the district that now strecthes from 12th to Liberty on Main, with a T from Main Street over to Race.

That doesn't even take into account the energy around Music Hall and Washington Park and all the new condos and apartments being brought online in the next 30-90 days in the Gateway location around the art academy.

I think the entire area in OTR is ready for a boost of participation and life. There are so many people working to make this happen, and it's exciting. It might not be the late night spot anymore, but it certainly is going to have a new type of energy.
