Every night in Columbus, a different band hooks up its amps and pours its hearts out to bar audiences. Some might be playing for the first time, and others have been playing for years and are still considered underground. Some have said that the music scene in downtown Columbus has remained static for the past 20 years, with little hype and attention. But that is just one opinion.
If you know where to look there are lots of live music events going on all over the city. A new independent film, “Indie” by Pete Vogel was just released, and takes a look at some of the up and coming bands located right in the heart of it all – Columbus, Ohio. The documentary chronicles the Columbus music scene that has slowly come into the spotlight as more and more bands and musicians begin to emerge from the city. Matt Monta & The Hot Coal Band, The Shaw Brothers, Joey Hebdo, Donna Mogavero Band, Phillip Fox Band, Salty Caramels, Throat Culture, Angela Perley & The Howlin’ Moons and Oswald & The Herringbones are among some of the musicians featured in the documentary.
The film was independently produced and shows an inside look at the Columbus music scene in 2010, early 2011.
