Ocean Is Theory
Atlanta based Ocean Is Theory is currently on tour in support of their new EP "Future Fears" which was released on Razor and Tie Records, and will be making a stop at Galaxy CDS January 5th as part of a huge show.
Formed in 2007, Ocean Is Theory is an Indie band success story in the making. "Into the Mouths Of Lions", the band's first self released EP launched them in the southeastern US, and went on to sell over 6000 copies. Those kind of numbers, and a rapidly growing fan base, caught the attention of both retailers and labels, leading to the band's signing with Razor and Tie.
The track "Underneath" from "Future Fears" was recently added by Apple as a pre-loaded song to all I-Pods sold in the US Apple stores according to the band's recent post on Twitter, which will surely lead to much bigger things. Be sure to come out and see them in what promises to be an outstanding show, and one of the last times you may be able to catch them in a smaller venue before they blow up.

The Orphan, The Poet
Joining this show is another rapidly rising band, Dayton's The Orphan, The Poet. With tracks licensed to Sparks Beverage Company, a track on the Pure Volume 2010 holiday sampler, and a place in SmartPunk's Top 40 Unsigned bands, not to mention over 30,000 fans on ReverbNation, The Orphan, The Poet is poised to also hit the big time. The group has produced multiple EP's, the most recent being "Translating", which you can read about and sample at Alter The Press! This is TOTP's second outing at the Galaxy, and is another band that will likely soon be too big to be seen at a smaller venue. Be here so you can say you saw them before they were huge!
Rounding out the biggest show to hit the Galaxy to date will be Let It Happen, Belle Histoire, and Remember When, three fantastic Cincinnati based bands. This show is Thursday night at 7pm, and is ALL AGES! Admission is just $5.00.
