The accelerated speed of tech developments over the past decade has changed the world in innumerable ways. The impact it has had on music is glaring, completely readjusting how the worldwide music industry operates and affecting everything from the way the sounds are created, recorded and distributed to the way they are experienced by listeners. Cincinnati’s Walk the Moon is currently in the midst of a quick rise in the music world that is a perfect example of how the career plans of aspiring young artists can today play out over an amazingly short period of time. It’s why you might want to catch Walk the Moon’s concert tonight at Oakley’s 20th Century Theater.
Tonight’s Walk the Moon appearance — alongside Cincy faves The Seedy Seeds and Louisville Electronica band The Pass — is a part of the “Red Shoes/Dance Pants” concert event presented by Reivax Records. Reivax is a music promotions/events/management business founded by some students at Xavier (read the Reivax name backwards) who built the company on money from the college, part of the school’s new business loan program that gives students a chance at real-world experience running a real-world small business.
The show begins at 8 p.m. and admission is $10. (Click here for show details.)
