It’s going to be another great summer on Fountain Square, with regular free events returning all season long, including the Friday night “Indie Vol. 2017” concerts, which just announced another stellar lineup of local and touring musical acts.
This year’s lineup (the ninth year the events have taken place) includes a mix of Indie Rock, Americana, Electronic and Hip Hop sounds, with shows kicking off on June 2. Of special note for fans of Cincinnati Rock superheroes Foxy Shazam — Eric Nally, the singer for the indefinitely-hiatused Foxy who has been working on his solo debut, closes out the series on Sept. 1. Nally, whose profile was raised by his appearance on Macklemore's hit single "Downtown," announced in February that he was shooting a music video in L.A. No formal announcement has been made about when new music will appear, but Nally's appearance on the Indie Vol. 2017 lineup suggests it won't be too long now (keep an eye on his website).
