The Ludlow Garage has a storied history that goes back to its first incarnation, with musicians like the Allman Brothers, Santana, and BB King performing there.
Far from resting on its laurels, however, the new Ludlow Garage has been very ambitious in its booking. We’re lucky to be able to see artists like Rickie Lee Jones, Macy Gray, Jonathan Richman, and Adrian Belew in such an intimate space.
The venue should also be commended for hosting such interesting, forward-thinking bands as New Mastersounds, the Levin Brothers (they’re coming on Saturday, January 18th!), and Nektar. Suddenly music that usually skips over Cincinnati appears right in the center of town.
And this morning’s newsflash tells us that the Ludlow Garage is going to host Rodriguez. That’s right, the legend whose story you may have seen on 60 Minutes or in the movie, Searching for Sugar Man. The concert will take on Valentine’s Day, which, better yet, is on a Friday this year. I have a strong hunch that many people’s Valentine’s Day plans just got a lot simpler. Tickets for the show go on sale at 10am on Friday, January 14. To order tickets, click this link. See you at the show!
