Local Music

Since I started my job in February and have been taking the bus and doing a lot of walking around the urban core, I have found myself listening to a lot more music, and especially Cincinnati-based artists. Thanks to recommendations from friends and coworkers, these local bands have been in near-constant rotation for months now:
