The booth is open, the drinks are chilling in the cooler and we’re reporting to you from “The Farm.” At a giant festival like Bonnaroo, overlapping set times can make for some tough decisions when it comes figuring out whether the Hozier, Bleachers or The War on Drugs set will offer the best vibes. But never fear fellow Roovians, we are here to help! Every year we scour the lineup lists to create our own personalized festival schedules. Everyone knows the headliners but a few of Powerhouse’s finest put our heads together to compile a list of our deep cut picks. Check out our list of the small type bands that anyone spending this week at ‘Roo shouldn’t miss after the jump. Read More
Hey What’s Good In? — a website and self-proclaimed resource guide for “creative people who want to learn about and contribute to good things in their city” — recently debuted their guide for Cincinnati. The site compiled a list of the raddest local non-profits, organizations, meet up opportunities, workspaces, media outlets and creative studios — and we made the cut! We found ourselves in good company with Neltner Small Batch, BLDG and TommyInk, among many other kick-ass creative houses here in the Queen City. Check out the full list over at HWGI? here.
A couple of weeks ago, we had Team Spirit into our print shop to play a couple of songs off their debut album, Killing Time.

Either way, take a second to check out Satisfaction and Teenage Heart below.

Check out the session below!
