The 2nd Annual “Indie Rock Fest/Cinco De Mayo Fiesta” was amazing this year and the line up was simply fantastic. While a day before the Cinco, it was a show full of good vibes, great music and a heck of a party. To call it jam packed really does not cover all of the musical goodness from the local community packed under one roof! Bands covered Americana, shoe gaze, rock and Indie Rock and Roll. Many thanks to the bands who played — A Voice of Your Own, The Boxcar Suite, The Typical Johnsons, The 1984 Draft, Neo-American Pioneers, Slow Glows and Kyleen Downes.
Last week we had our good friends A Voice of Your Own in the YTAA studio. The week before that we had our pal Mandy Jewell in to talk about her music and the Dayton Scene! No one goes to as many shows as Mandy! We are Very happy to let you know that Mandy has a show coming up on April 21st with The Typical Johnsons and Evil Eye Gypsy at Southpark Tavern.
This week we are keeping the local train rolling with Tim Pritchard and Matt & Tesia of The Nautical Theme spending some time with us!
It was a real pleasure to have A Voice of Your Own in the studio this past week! Such fine fellows! And their record, ‘Vines on the Lines’ is fantastic! And to boot, they make fantastic videos! Check out their cool videos on their AVOYO youtube channel!
Join us this Tuesday as we welcome additional cool guests: Tim Pritchard of The Boxcar Suite talking about their new record and the record release show for ‘Further In, Farther Out’ at the Yellow Cab Tavern on April 28th!

Lyrics: she’s in her white dress, she doesn’t have any shoes on, she’s standing at the end of the driveway, watching the sun set, she’s been dreaming of places much better than here, somewhere west… she said “can you take me for a ride, I want to get the hell out of this little town, and make a name for myself” she’s in her white dress, she’s waiting on her new boyfriend, she’s standing at the end of the driveway, watching the cars pass, she envisions a place much better than here, somewhere west… she said “can you take me for a ride, I want to get the hell out of this little town, and make a name for myself” she’s dreaming of the west coast, she’s got a gun in her hand, she said “baby you’re like magic tonight, with tattoos and pentagrams” she’s dreaming of the west coast, she’s got a gun in her hand, she said “I’ll write this down this time, so I wont ever forget”
Today from 3-6pm at YTAA we are joined in the studio from the fine lads in A Voice of Your Own who will talk about their latest record, “Vines on the Lines” and upcoming shows in our local area, and how to get just the right feeling on a song. The music that AVOYO make is reminiscent of 90’s alternative music in the best possible sense!
A Voice Of Your Own blends traditional pop song structures, and low fi indie influences with a hands-on DIY approach that connects and pays homage to their musical influences while sounding fresh and contemporary. AVOYO draws from a variety of different skilled artists and musicians such as Tom Petty, The Cars, Beck, and The White Stripes which is some pretty damn fine company! AVOYO started as a solo project formed by producer, guitarist, and song writer James Crabtree. As a solo project, AVOYO had previously independently released two full length albums. Today the band has evolved into a full dynamic group.
A Voice of Your Own have a new record “Vines On The Lines” that has been available since February. The band currently consists of James Crabtree (guitar/vocals), Johnny McConnell (bass), Levi Short (guitar/vocals) Tylur Kahnle (guitar) and Matt Mihalus (drums). We welcome them to the YTAA studio this week!
