Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Over the Rhine/Matt the Electrician

When: Fri., Dec. 6, 8 p.m. 2013

Cincinnati’s indie folk-rock act Over the Rhine first formed in 1989 and had a brief brush with stardom in the ’90s, when it signed to the I.R.S. imprint, the same label that launched the career of R.E.M. The band never broke through to the mainstream, but it has delivered some solid folk-rock albums. The Long Surrender, a terrific release that it recorded with Grammy-winning producer Joe Henry (Loudon Wainwright III, Ani DiFranco), features a guest appearance by Lucinda Williams. Henry even co-wrote two songs with the band. The band's latest album, Meet Me at the Edge of the World, features tender vocal harmonies and rich soundscapes that feature folk instrumentation. Expect to hear songs from it as well as some holiday classics at tonight's show. (Niesel)
