Leggy
« on: November 19, 2014, 05:55:07 PM »

Nice plug for my daughter's band from this week's CityBeat:

• Cincy “Bubblegum Punk” trio Leggy are set to go international in a few weeks, taking their winter tour to the East Coast and then traveling to play Canada for the first time. The band, which issued its debut release, the excellent, infectious six-song Cavity Castle, earlier this year (listen to/purchase it at  leggy.bandcamp.com), will kick off its tour with a hometown show Saturday at MOTR Pub (1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, motrpub.com). Detroit’s Palaces kick off the free show at 10 p.m.

Here are the tour dates for what Leggy is calling its "Winter Babies Tour" (never mind that this is still Fall):

November 22 - Cincinnati, OH @ MOTR
November 23 - Athens, OH @ Bat Lounge
November 24 - Washington, DC @ The Pinch
November 26 - Baltimore, MD @ @ WINDUP
November 28 - Brooklyn, NY @  PALISADES
November 30 - Manhattan, NY @ Cake Shop
December 1 - Philadelphia, PA @ Hazard Hall
December 2 - Boston, MA @ House Show
December 3 - Easthampton, MA @ Flywheel
December 4 - Montreal, QC @ Barfly
December 5 - Toronto, ON @ Silver Dollar Room
December 6 - London, ON @ House Show
December 7 - Windsor, ON @ Phog Lounge
December 8 - Kalamazoo, MI @ LOUIE'S TROPHY ROOM
December 9 - Columbus, OH @ Ace of Cups
December 10 - Lexington, KY @ Best Friend Bar

The 2015 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards nominations have just been announced:

New Artist of the Year: Dream Tiger; Honeyspiders; PRIM; Elk Creek; Leggy; Noah Smith

Also this, from CityBeat:

Like the past couple years, there will be a “Best New Bands” showcase leading up to the CEA ceremony featuring performers from the “New Artist of the Year” category (as well as other worthy newcomers). The Best New Bands showcase returns to Bogart’s on Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015, and will coincide with CityBeat’s Best New Bands issue, profiling the New Artist nominees.

I am excited for my daughter  8)

As a reminder, these 6 play at Bogart's this coming Saturday Jan 17 in the "Best New Bands 2015" showcase. I have it on good inside information that Leggy plays at 10 on the dot  ;) 

Tix for the Bogart's show are just $5.

Well that was quite the event at Bogart's on Saturday. Frankly, I was fearing the worst (attendance-wise). Got there at 9:30 and was shocked to see the place bustling and with a huge crowd on hand. I'm guessing 750-1,000 people? My daughter told me that was quite normal (based on what she saw last year, she tells me). Leggy came on at 10:30 and I thought they put on a great set (but of course I'm biased). By far the largest crowd they've played to so far. Fun all around.

Ah, the woes of a touring band.  I've got nothing to offer, unfortunately.  Hope they figure something out.
