Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one general-admission ticket to the Neon Trees Concert at Bogart's from Live Nation (a $17.50 value) on Thursday, May 26, at 7 p.m.
Neon Trees yokes together steady rhythms, catchy guitar riffs, and sing-a-long choruses, landing the band at #1 on the 2010 Billboard Heat-Seekers charts for its album Habits. All ages can come to experience Neon Trees' rollicking hooks and infectious sounds for a 1.5-hour show at Bogart's, a century-old, 1,500-seat venue adjacent to the University of Cincinnati. Having gone through incarnations as a vaudeville theater, a German film house, and a meet-up for the International Time Travelers Association, it now hosts top-notch sonic visitors scheduled by Live Nation.
The Limousines and Eastern Conference Champions will open the show. Those arriving automobilically have access to pay parking across the street or metered parking that is free weekdays after 6 p.m. Bogart's is wheelchair accessible.
