I wrote this up for the LEO. Check out the show tonight!
bands aren’t really known for their national recognition. After all, when Pere
Ubu is one of the “Rock ‘n’ Roll Capital of the World’s” biggest claims to
fame, it’s hard for natives like myself to brag about the local scene. But mr.
Gnome is the kind of powerhouse duo that’s working hard to dispel the rumors
that Cleveland is just a sad city with a hopeless football team. Nicole Barille
and Sam Meister play the kind of experimental, art rock that alternates between
creepy psychedelia and murky pop. They don’t stop at music. Their 2011 release,
Madness in Miniature, follows the
same concept as their graphic novel and a soon-to-be-released live-action music
video. mr. Gnome kicks off its fall tour right here Louisville.
