Around Hear: The Bonus Edition


This week's edition of Around Hear features updates on User Sets Mode+ (a new band with members of Racermason and the Frans), the Lovekill (it might be dead), and Red Giant (they’re back from the dead). Here's a few more breaking items, submitted for your approval... * Akron’s Rebel Girl (click the video above) will play a set as part of the Akron Racers’ opening weekend. The rocker grrls will play a pre-game set Saturday, June 9 at 5 p.m.. The fast-pitch softball team plays the Chicago Bandits at Akron’s Firestone Stadium (1575 Firestone Pkwy.) * The debut album from Copperfoot, hands-down Northeast Ohio’s premier hillbilly-bluegrass-reggae fusion band, is still on indefinite hold until the band can raise cash for more studio time to replace tracks written by its former bassist. You can help them by making a donation at their show Friday, June 8 at Around the Corner (18616 Detroit Ave., Lakewood). * Willowick’s Gauge will play a Women in Rock showcase at Los Angeles’ Whisky a Go Go July 7. * The Suede Brothers, formerly the Black Diamonds, will play Toronto’s Northeast Music Festival Friday, June 8 at the Black Ball Club. The retro-rawk band will be guests on 92.3 FM K-Rock’s Inner Sanctum local-music showcase this Sunday, June 10, 10 p.m. -- DF.X. Ferris
