With a brand-new album in the hatch and musical muscles bulging, the platinum-selling Seattle outfit Candlebox rocks out Bogarts on its spring tour. The band first made radio waves in the early '90s with breakout hits “Far Behind” and “You,” which stayed in rotation on MTV like an overzealous Wheel of Fortune spin. The group has since persevered as a vessel of the rock ‘n’ roll spirit, rising above the grunge-rock label initially applied to it by coloring its tunes with genres such as blues and jazz. Blending time-honored chart-toppers with tracks from the upcoming Love Stories & Other Musings, Candlebox burns like a box with a candle inside in a live performance fit to thrill fresh faces and longtime fans alike. Youthful, energized, and tightly wound, Southern California’s Acidic opens the show with sturdy rock anthems played with old-pro assurance.
Constructed as a vaudeville theater in 1890, Bogarts has completed a century-long metamorphosis to become one of Cincinnati’s beacons of live entertainment. An elevated stage and three viewing levels ensure optimal sight lines for general-admission audiences, allowing them to study the meticulous shredding of every guitar solo and the expert uvula choreography during each chorus.
