Winter Makes Sailors and Connections at Treebar with Swearing at Motorists
Seems like Swearing at Motorists’ Dave Doughman has been MIA in recent years. However, he is reportedly working on a new album and is making his return to Columbus next week to play a show at the Tree Bar on Monday, May 13. Also on the bill are Connections, who consist largely of Dayton-area natives like Mr. Doughman, and Winter Makes Sailors. Be forewarned: it is on the early side, with a start time of 9pm.

St. Lenox, whose debut is forthcoming on Anyway, recently posted a new song. This one is a collaboration with our pal Parker Paul. Take a listen below.
Connections opening for the Breeders in Detroit
After two successful performances supporting the Breeders on their Last Splash tour in Pittsburgh and Oberlin, Ohio, Connections have been asked to open for them again at The Majestic Theatre in Detroit on Sunday, May 12 (a.k.a. Mother’s Day). We can’t think of a better way to tell mom you love her than to take her to the show, and tickets are still available.
