Ways To Connect

Two years ago, Auburndale reunited with the idea of playing a farewell show, but soon talk turned to new material and a new album was underway.  The album celebrates and is dedicated to the citizens of Dayton and the other cities listed on the Forbes magazine 10 Dying Cities List.  The band made a return visit to the WYSO studios to talk the writing and recording process and share some tracks from Alive in a Dying City.

Auburndale will celebrate the release of Alive in a Dying City on Saturday, November 13 at Blind Bob's.

Tim Kao began writing the songs that would become Old Music for Young Hearts while living in Shanghai, China.  When he returned to the U.S., he met up with several established local musicians with whom he finished the album.  T.Kao visited the WYSO studios to perform live versions of songs from Old Music for Young Hearts and to talk about the collaborative recording process for the album.

At 7:30 this evening, Clark County polling places closed and precincts began to count votes. The county experienced good voter turnout today with no problems at the polls.

Absentee voting was down this year compared to the 2008 election. In Clark County over 8,000 people voted by absentee ballot. Board of Elections Director Mark Oster says that absentee voting results don't necessarily indicate who's going to win an election.

Sean Pennington and Georgia Goad first visited the WYSO studios when they were competing in the semi-finals of the Dayton Band Playoffs.  Their debut album was recorded while they were competing in the playoffs, but the duo waited until later this fall to release it so they could finish up the artwork and production.  A Shade of Red returned to Kaleidoscope to talk about the new album and their plans now that it's being released.

A Shade of Red will celebrate the release of Blush on Friday, October 29 at Canal Street Tavern.

On Friday morning four new parks opened in downtown Dayton. They were small - about 200 square feet- and they were in the street. That's because September 17th was PARK(ing) Day. Dayton joined cities around the world participating in the grassroots movement that transforms metered parking spots into mini green spaces for one day only.

Here's how it works: people around the world pick a metered parking spot in their community. They feed the meter all day to rent the spot which gets transformed into a small park.

A parking spot outside the Ludlow Street entrance of City Hall will be covered in grass and plants. But it's only from 7:30 am until five-thirty in the afternoon. The plants are donated, and the City isn't spending any public funds to participate.

September 17th is Parking Day. It's a global grassroots movement that transforms meter parking spots into mini green spaces for one day. This year several Dayton organizations will be participating including City Hall.

Each of the four members of Jasper the Colossal says she brings a different style of music to the band from punk to British Pop to alternative metal.  The band says they enjoy the energy and crowd interaction that comes with a live performance and are currently searching for a studio that can capture their live sound for a full length album.

Jasper the Colossal will perform live on Thursday, September 26th at Club Vex and as part of Dayton Music Fest on Oct 2nd.

Kidtee Hello

Human Reunion's new album has been a 3 year work-in-progress, but the end result, an album called Arc de Square was well worth the wait.  The band visited the WYSO studios for a live performance and discussed translating their raw live energy into a recording, especially when they usually weren't in the same room during the recording process.

Human Reunion will perform Saurday night at Blind Bob's.
