DOHM, Olio

DOHM, these guys never cease to amaze me. So tight, so intricate, so mind blowing @ times. I think that Cleveland has the talent to be the next break out music city. And DOHM is one of the bands that will be leading the way. In addition they do a remake as it should be done. Not just cashing in on someone elses songs through sampling or re-recording it exactly the same. But instead, almost unrecognizable from the original ala Green Manalishi. Finally Olio came down to finish the night. Formerly known as Last Six Days, these guys have come a long way. They were tight as hell, and rocked the house out. Here's what you said:

  • DOHM, someone please sign these guys - James Palek

  • V-town, thanks for having us out once again. These aren't "shows", they are family reunions. You're new bartender is hot, nice work. until next time, much love and keep ragin. - All our love, DOHM
  • The bass player looks like he's been a naughty boy - WWOX
  • The drummer playing the cowbell is hot!!
  • Olio, need to get a better demo and yes they are 'better than butter"
  • Butta, parkay, butta, parkay, butta, parkay, OK Olio
  • OH Leee Oh, OH OH - the witches soldiers

Vanity Crash, Baby Shaker, Velvematics

Baby Shaker kicked things off with their blend of melodic 60s inspired rock. Everyone sings in this trio, and good songs are the icing on the cake. Next, Vanity Crash - one of my favorite bands in Cleveland. Just when you think they can't top their last show, they do, every time, a must see. I finally got to meet our east side counterparts Nick and Lisa from the Maplegrove. As Nick's band the Velvematics closed out the night.
