Like it or not, the holiday shopping season is almost upon us, and I doubt that anyone hates malls more than I do.
Fortunately, the BuyCincy Holiday Event (previously "Cincinnati Unchained") promotes the benefits of shopping locally while bringing holiday traffic to locally-owned, independent businesses in the Greater Cincinnati area.
I love that the album cover for ShowYrTeeth shows a person immersed in a bathtub of glittering sludge inside a dilapidated room that looks like an abandoned industrial warehouse somewhere. It is this combination of glitzy and gritty that exemplifies the sound and style of The Kickaways. ShowYrTeeth is a tantalizing mixture of glam with a touch of 'the ultra-violence.'
