Excursions was so excited to get to preview the Sideshow in the studio this morning. Jeff Opt and Erin Vasconcelos, the organizers for event were on hand to talk about the music, the art and the fun that is this 8th annual art community event. Also there were A Shade of Red (Georgia Goad and Sean Pennington) and Repeating Arms (Harold on guitar, Ira on mandolin and Max on banjo), two of the bands that will be performing in the Sideshow this weekend.

Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990.
