MOTR has been presenting live, original music and comedy in OTR since 2010. We book shows 6 nights a week and focus on new artist development both locally and from around the globe, creating a fun atmosphere for music explorers and new artists alike. Cincinnati’s remarkable music scene is almost always represented on MOTR's stage which also serves as a launch pad for touring artists into the Cincy market.
MOTR was the FIRST Cincinnati area appearance for a variety of pioneering performers including Alabama Shakes, Lord Huron, Valley Queen, Twin Shadow, Margo Price, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Low Cut Connie, Angel Olson, Twin Peaks, Birds of Chicago, Houndmouth, All Them Witches, Shovels & Rope, Cloud Nothings, STRFKR, Akron Family ….
