Sebastian Bach - 18 and LIVE TourSebastian Bach is one of Metal’s most recognizable voices. Best known as the front man and the voice behind Skid Row; Bach is still considered one of the best in the business. Skid Row’s self titled debut album became an instant classic when it hit the airwaves back in the late 80’s. Songs like “18 and Life”, “I Remember You” and the teenage anthem “Youth Gone Wild” remain fixtures on mainstream radio.

Following his success with Skid Row, Bach helped to form the super group “The Last Hard Men” featuring guitarist Jimmy Flemion (The Frogs), drummer Jimmy Chamberlin (Smashing Pumpkins), and Dayton’s Kelley Deal (The Breeders).
Bach also has five solo albums to his credit including 2011’s “Kicking & Screaming” and hisSebastian Bach - Give em Hell newest release called “Give ‘em Hell” which is perhaps Bach’s best effort to date. The album features great tunes like “All My Friends Are Dead” and my favorite called “Temptation”.
Bach and band mates Bobby Jarzombek (Drums), Brent Woods (Guitar), and Rob DeLuca (Bass) are set to invade the Gem City Thursday, July 2 when they confiscate Oddbody’s Music Room for the band’s “18 and LIVE” Tour. Joining in the mayhem are Dayton’s own Secret Circle Society and the power trio from Middletown called Wicked Fixx.

TICKETS for Sebastian Bach’s “18 & LIVE” at Oddbody’s Music Room are available now for $25 or $30 the day of the show. Doors open at 7pm and the bedlam begins at 8pm.

Record stores – especially independently owned and operated ones – have become increasingly rare within the past decade. Dayton alone lost one locally owned record store after another in the 2000s, including favorites like Dingleberry’s, Renaissance Music Media, Gem City Records, Trader Vic’s and several others. But fortunes for mom and pop record stores have turned around in the past several years due to the resurgence of vinyl – y’know, those 12- and 7-inch round things people used to play at home on these things called turntables. With that changing of the tide, brick and mortar record stores are making a comeback – thanks to rabid dedication of record collectors who love their fuzzy warbles, both new and old.


Almost two years after Kim Deal quit the Pixies, no-one’s any the wiser as to why she walked out. But when there’s a new Breeders record and regular seven-inches from Deal on the horizon, why dwell on the past? She tells Emily Mackay about keeping it cottage industry…
