Cincinnati Nightlife: 38 reviews and 62 photos
Having heard that one of the best folk punk bands ever (along with The Pogues) was playing at McFadden's downtown, we headed on out to see the show. As it was festival seating it was crowded but we managed to find a spot off to the side for a premier view. The place was absolutely rockin', the acoustics were great, the verve of the crowd was infectious and the concert tees were reasonable (one of my pride & joy purchases).
Gordon Gano, the lead singer, lyricist & guitarist for the band told us he felt quite at home here considering the concert was held outside behind McFadden's in Gano Alley. What a welcome!
Read recently that McFadden's has closed but that there is new ownership already who'll reopen the place under a different name. Hopefully, the tradition of bringing excellent bands to the Queen City will continue!
