One Day Steady – Shoot & Run
Alternative indie Rock
Labeled “Cincinnati’s Next Big Band,” by Impul City, One Day Steady, an indie-rock band with nostalgic 90’s roots, is on the rise. The group recently played to a crowd of 7,000+ people as they opened for Smash Mouth at The University of Cincinnati’s Red and Black Bash.

Freudz Couch- Dragonfly
Music Genre:: Rock (Some would say Hard Rock/Metal)
Lyrically it’s probably the most personal song we’ve ever written reflective of some of the band members real life situations but in the end it’s about the daily life of a Dragonfly. Freudz Couch initially formed in 1992 touring and recording 3 albums and multiple indie singles through to 2003 before disbanding. An unlikely reunion took place in 2016 with the intent of seeing if the band still had it in them to write an original song. In the first session, 3 new songs were written in a matter of an afternoon. Several months later, a new 5 song EP titled ‘ego’ was released in 2017 and the band is in the process of writing new material for a full album release in the new year. https://open.spotify.com/track/7Jq1jo2NsdFNnAYvzeoNuf
