In spite of its name, Mosses doesn't linger anywhere long enough to sprout vegetation. The improvisational psych-rock collective, which currently consists of Ryan Jewell, EveLenker and Troy Kunkler, all of whom chip in on various instruments, has been in constant motion since Jewell first conceived the band as a solo project in 2012. In the years since, the group's sound, along with its lineup, has steadily evolved, flirting with everything from experimental tape loops informed by the works of minimalist composer Terry Riley to hazy psychedelic folk burners that linger like so much incense smoke.Zac Brown Band at the Schottenstein Center Masked Intruder at Rumba Café Wanda Sykes at the Palace Theatre Dej Loaf at The Xclusive Venue Columbus Blue Jackets vs. New York Islanders at Nationwide Arena Sunday Goatsnake at Ace of Cups
The stampeding blues-metal quartet plays its first-ever Ohio show at Ace of Cups this weekend. The band is back together after a long hiatus that started in 2001. "We never officially broke up, but there just wasn't time for us to get together and play," said Greg Anderson, who first regrouped with original members Pete Stahl (vocals) and Greg Rogers (drums) in Oct. 2014 (the band's current lineup is rounded out by bassist Scott Renner). "With this band, it's never been about money or touring the world or some of those more traditional goals. It's always been, 'OK, we like playing together, and if we have time to do it, let's do it.'"Juggalo Championship Wrestling at the Newport Beethoven's Seven at the Columbus Museum of Art
