The Viking Lounge Series

The Viking Lounge Series is a monthly concert series hosted by We Have Become Vikings. We are inviting local and national acts to join us for a monthly, all-ages matinee, from 5-8pm where a guest band will perform a short, stripped down set and interview. We look forward to spending Final Friday's with you at WHBV, 1355 Walnut Street in Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202.

We will have food and spirits, as well as new featured merchandise. There will be a poster series featuring bands from the Viking Lounge Series, new, one-of-a-kind designed and printed at WHBV band tees. We aim to arm the bands that play each month at our lounge with new tees they can sell, take on the road, make a few bucks. At WHBV, we're in bands and love to help bands - we understand that selling one more tee or poster can get a band to the next city, a next meal. Like AC / DC said, "It's a Long Way to the Top, if you want to Rock N' Roll." Support Rock N' Roll, and support creative talent.

They call us thrash pop and I still don't know what it means. Robert Christgau says: "From the budding alt-rock Athens of Cincinnati, Ohio, three hairy thrash-pop guys help one bebanged post-riot grrrl work out her frustrations."
