Columbus Alive


Female-fronted rock bands

Move over, dudes. Some of the most exciting rock music being made today is by women: Waxahatchee, Courtney Barnett, Bully, Swearin’, Cayetana, All Dogs, Sleater-Kinney, Screaming Females, Ex Hex, Colleen Green, etc.



My favorite band of the ’90s is releasing their first new album in almost 20 years AND opening for Jane's Addiction in Columbus? I am dead.

I love loving things. Things are wonderful. I might have to actually marry things, l love them so much.


Danger 5

“Give the snake more cocaine!”


Broad City

It's one of the funniest shows I've seen in a very long time.
