But hey, at least we've got Best Coast!

Sure, Radiohead is skipping Columbus, but one band that will be paying us a visit is Best Coast. (For some of you, this might be more exciting than a visit from Radiohead. I don't understand your kind, but I acknowledge your existence.) Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno's band hits Newport Music Hall on July 23. Tickets cost $16 and go on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m.

I checked out Best Coast's show at The Summit in 2010, and while they didn't blow me away, I suspect the band has grown into their britches since then in terms of poise and presence, and I bet they'll have some new songs on deck.

Also coming soon: The Band Perry, Chicago, Casting Crowns and comedian Jim Gaffigan are among the acts confirmed so far at the Ohio State Fair. Primus will be at the LC on May 23. And as predicted in Jams of the Week, the April 19 appearance by fun. has been moved from the Newport to the LC.
