Cincinnati Bands Ahead in Virtual Battle of Ohio Bands

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - This summer, Cincinnati is proving to be the city that rocks. So far, nearly half of the top 12 bands competing in Time Warner Cable and MTV2 Ohio's Virtual Battle of Ohio Bands contest are from the Cincinnati area.

Similar contests are taking place in other markets, including Atlanta and Philadelphia. Ohio's contest has 168 entries, many from the Cincinnati-Dayton area. There's no question that the region lives up to the title bestowed on it a few years ago by Esquire Magazine. It is indeed a city that rocks.

But the bands aren't the only ones making noise. Voting started June 26, and thousands of Ohioans already have cast online votes. Until the polls close on July 9, voters choose which bands should open Linkin Park's Projekt Revolution Tour on August 15 at Riverbend Amphitheatre near Cincinnati and on August 19 at the Blossom Music Center south of Cleveland.

MTV2 will review the 12 artists who receive the most online votes and then select three to represent Ohio on the Revolution stages. As of 10:30 a.m. today, the Cincinnati-area bands among the top 12 are:

  • Just Above Jealous - Oxford
  • patchwork - Cincinnati
  • Wicked Intent - Cincinnati
  • Session 9 - Cincinnati
  • Agnes - Independence, Ky.

Voters should visit http://ohio.mtv2.com to watch videos uploaded by the bands, read their bios and vote for their favorite music-makers.

MTV2 crews will capture it all and showcase this historic Ohio summer music event for Time Warner Cable customers locally On Demand.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
