All the Glowing Musical Performances We Saw at BLINK Cincinnati

BLINK is a light-based art festival that transformed Cincinnati into a luminous, kaleidoscopic alter-ego of the Queen City with large-scale projection-mapping installations, lustrous murals and immersive art for all ages from Oct. 10-13. A walk through BLINK had you looking at the city in a whole new light, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of artists who made this four-day festival possible. And while BLINK filled the streets, buildings and skies over Cincinnati and Covington with brilliant light and color, more than 80 local musical performances filled the airwaves with sounds via the festival's six stages scattered throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Among those 80-plus performances were some of the city's favorite musical acts, including Pomegranates (a rare chance to catch them),  TriiibeBlack SignalCarriersMoonbeauJSPHLauren Eylise and Young Heirlooms, just to name a few, plus touring acts like Grouplove and Redfoo. Here's the full lineup of performances.
