Keynote Recap 2
Most quotable musician: Artist keynote speaker Greg Dulli – a hero on the local scene and in the indie rock world – refused to mince words when he addressed MidPoint attendees on Friday.
Dulli on his early days with influential local band the Afghan Whigs:
“Coming from Cincinnati, you had to work harder … you had to try harder, you had to believe in yourself more.”
On the Cincinnati-area music scene: “When we were coming up, it was clique city.”
On being at ground zero during the early-’90s alternative-rock movement: “It was electric. It felt like a revolution, and it kinda was.”
