Newport, Kentucky, July, 9 2013 — Taking their appreciation of music and culture from two-dimensional prints to a fully-dimensional experience, Greater Cincinnati-based print shop and brand-building agency Powerhouse Factories released their inaugural Powerhouse Live performance on Tuesday, featuring local indie band The Pinstripes.
The Pinstripes’ session, accompanied by a Q&A with the band, marks the first in a series of intimate, recorded video performances with touring musicians as they pass through the Tri-State region. The series of video performances will highlight an array of both local and national artists in stripped down, short sets recorded live inside their creative studio located in Newport, Kentucky.
Powerhouse selected The Pinstripes for the first Powerhouse Live after featuring the band at their Summer Shindig, a party and open house at their studio in May celebrating the beginning of the summer music festival season.
“We’ve been fortunate enough to work with national acts over the years, but we still love to partner with the amazing local bands that are right in our own back yard,” said Ben Nunery, Powerhouse Factories’ co-founder. “Powerhouse Live is our way of contributing to the local and national music scene by helping promote the bands that inspire our work on a daily basis.”
The Pinstripes’ Powerhouse Live session debuts as the band prepares for their Bunbury Music Festival appearance in front of their hometown crowd Saturday, July 13.
“We’re sharing a bill with some crazy names like Cake, MGMT and others, so that in and of itself is pretty neat,” said Mike Sarason, band leader for The Pinstripes. “But to do that in Cincinnati of all places makes it even more special.”
