Local music website CincyMusic and Cincinnati's independent radio station Inhailer Radio are teaming up to host a big-ass benefit show for sister Over-the-Rhine indie music venues the Woodward Theater and MOTR Pub.

The streaming music fest will feature 20 bands over two nights — Friday, May 22 and Saturday, May 23 — and take place on the CincyMusic Facebook page. 

"MOTR and Woodward are two of the most important venues in our city," says CincyMusic Editor in Chief Courtney Phenicie in the event posting. "They help artists to grow and provide a platform like no other in our area. We need to ensure that MOTR and Woodward are able to survive and be able to open their doors to us as soon as safely possible."

Shows will take place 5:30-11 p.m. each night. Acts slated to perform include:

  • Multimagic
  • Bad Veins
  • Joey Joseph (of Pomegranates / Joseph)
  • Moonbeau
  • MADQUEEN
  • Lauren Eylise
  • Maria Carrelli
  • Carriers
  • Physco
  • Hillary Hahn
  • Bodega
  • Pet Envy
  • Justin Lynch & The New Usuals
  • BANGS
  • Coastal Club
  • The Electric Indigo
  • Quiet Hollers
  • Tooth Lures a Fang
  • Kaitlyn Peace

“Since day one, MOTR and Woodward Theater have been home base for our Cincinnati music family. It’s been a difficult time for our local scene, bands and venues. Inhailer Radio was launched in 2017 during another difficult time for our region when we lost WNKU. We are thrilled that so many bands we love are stepping up to help support these amazing venues. We know it may be a while before we can get back to local shows but our community is strong and we will continue to support each other," says Inhailer founder and Multimagic vocalist Coran Stetter.

While you watch, consider donating to the MOTR/Woodward emergency staff fund. The two-day concert is free and certainly worth more than that, especially if you don't want to lose important independent venues like these that support up-and-coming local musicians as well as touring acts and function as an essential part of the fabric of Cincinnati's music scene.
