The Kickaways (Cincinnati)
Forming just a few years ago, The Kickaways exploded onto the Cincinnati music scene with a kick-ass brand of arftul Rock & Roll that was showcased beautifully on the band’s quickly recorded 2011 release, America! America! Known for their great, sparks-inducing live shows, The Kickaways scored the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for best Rock act at the 2011 ceremony and have toured regularly since. The band spent the past year or so working on its new record, Show Yr Teeth, which is scheduled to be released in conjunction with The Kickaways’ 2013 MidPoint showcase.
