It's a slow night if you're looking for some touring acts to check out — in other words, typical Monday — but there are still a handful of local artists performing tonight. If you're a musician, there are some open jams (Blues jam with Sonny Moorman at Anderson Bar & Grill and Jazz jam with the Sandy Suskind Quartet at the Blue Wisp) and open mics (with host Pete DeNuzio at Knotty Pine and Bob Cushing's acoustic open mic at Shady O'Grady's).
If you'd rather just watch and listen, great local Rock trio Sparrow Bellows plays the last night of its every-Monday "House Band" residency at Over-the-Rhine's MOTR Pub. The group — which features ace musicians Sammy Wulfeck (Goose, ex-Stapletons), Brian Kitzmiller (Black Owls, Trojan Rabbit) and guitar wiz Ric Hickey (solo, Telegram Sam, Speed Hickeys) — announced on its Facebook page this morning that its 9 p.m. MOTR performance tonight will be its "last multi-set show for a long time to come," so Bellows superfans take note. The show is a freebie, as always at MOTR.
