Haunting at Southgate House this Thursday

Back in the day, I got to see a lot of shows at the Southgate House in Cincinnati. The main one that sticks in my mind is right after 9/11 when Julian Casablancas of The Strokes was drunkenly sprawled across the stage while singing "Last Night". That's what you call rock'n'roll.

That's why this post about Southgate House on Milk Milk Lemonade caught my attention.

You see, in addition to being an amazing place to see a show,Southgate House is this unbelievable statue in history. Milk Milk Lemonade gives a brief insight into the history, "Built two years after the war of 1812 by British prisoners, this beautiful home was once visited by soon-to-be President Abraham Lincoln and later the birthplace of John Tariaferro Thompson, inventor of the 'Tommy Gun'. Since that time, the original structure has been converted into a multi-stage music venue including a cozy lounge, substantial ballroom, intimate second floor parlour and third floor art gallery to compliment most any type of event." Rumor has it, the place is haunted as well. And I love a good ghost story. reported, "Besides hearing a musical entity playing the piano when the living are far from it, the man's laughter, and the knocking on the walls, many people on the staff have heard the mumbling of disembodied voices." Chilling.

If you want a haunting without the fear of the ghostly figure, be sure to check out the rich haunting vocals of Leopold and His Fiction at Southgate House this Thursday, April 8th and head to to determine where to avoid the ghostly beings while you are there.(For the record, I've never seen a ghost myself while I was there). An exclusive unreleased tour single of "Golden Friends" from the upcoming Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Little Joy, Vetiver) produced album will be available at the show. Tickets are $5 for 21+ / $8 for 18-20.
