Musica is one of the more eventful places in Akron. Just by regularly bringing moderately well-known to well-known groups from around the country, it pretty routinely makes up a good deal of the monthly events on the Downtown Akron Partnership calendar.
But just because they get some bigger names doesn’t mean they won’t keep track of the local music scene. Last night I checked out a few local bands made up of a few friends of mine, Lions from Ohio and Whispersignal.
The lions here are jamming under some very pink lighting. They put together a pretty good show, especially for the first show played together in couple months. I personally got a kick out of a song late in the set built around the catchphrase of a more famous lion, “If I were king of the forest..”
Their show was followed up by another local band, Whispersignal - which is a pretty appropriate name, given that the style was so much quieter than the previous show.
Good shows all around, and a decent crowd for a Wednesday night.
