Pumpkins Sidebar: Christmas comes early Dec. 4

From the November 29, 2012 edition

Smashing Pumpkins isn’t the only marquee act coming to Columbus on Dec. 4. Here are four more awesome options for your Tuesday entertainment.

Other Lives at The Basement: The epic Oklahomans with a Radiohead streak specialize in folksy, artful anthems that could feasibly bring down The Basement with all the strength and wrenching emotion of Samson.

Patrick Watson at the Wexner Center for the Arts: There is great beauty and grace in Watson’s music — falsetto-driven chamber pop that surges with power even as it drifts along at the speed fog.

Mannie Fresh at Skully’s Music Diner: An architect of the popping Southern sound that made the Cash Money Millionaires actual millionaires, Fresh will perform after the latest Clash of the Titans producer battle.

The King Khan & BBQ Show at Ace of Cups: Two superstars of the garage rock underground, together again at last!
