Come check out the sites for three of the hottest commodities to come out of Ohio (we're just not known for football riots, you know):
Frostiva will give anyone a run for their money. They may be aloof at times, but it's that which keeps the people coming back for more. They WILL be added to the Wazee rotation. It's just a matter of time before this Columbus chick quartet is all over the map. They have talent, are sexy, and will punish those who stand in their way with swiftness. http://www.frostiva.com
Leo's from Cleveland (and not to hold the Browns and Indians against them) and are pretty damn good. Good enough in fact to open for Flickerstick and Greenwheel. They just recently played the infamous Newport in Columbus and are mainstays at the Agora in their hometown. of their mp3s, "Na Na" is the standout. http://www.leotheband.com
Then there's Audiblethread, who are releasing their latest EP in early August and will follow that up with a full length in time for Christmas. If you like Flaw and Trapt, then you'll be into these guys in no time.http://www.audiblethread.com
Don't take my word for it. You will be impressed, though.
