Saturday was a full day for live music in Louisville, which meant we had a packed schedule. Do502 once again was killing it with a special show with Olivia Jean. The Nashville based band made its Louisville debut at the brand new Bermuda Highway Boutique (which hosted its first live show.) The crowd was small, as the shop is a pretty tight space, but all appeared to be fully engaged music lovers. We all got a cute little goodie bag brought to us by Third Man Records (Olivia Jean’s record label) including a vinyl of Bathtub Love Killings, some chocolate, local Bourbon Barrel sugar, and Do502 sunglasses. I tend to really like female voices, so Olivia Jean got a thumbs up. Another plus, Bermuda Highway looked awesome – can’t wait to come back to shop!
The next stop was back to Zanzabar for an evening of local bands. The night was to celebrate The Pass for the release of their new EP, High Road. We missed Howell Dawdy (but we did find the chance to introduce ourselves) and only caught the end of Twenty First Century Fox, but both did a great job setting up The Pass – the room was filled to the brim by the time the headliner went on. This was by far the biggest crowd I had ever seen at ZBar. The Pass played a lot of their old stuff but the evening was to celebrate the new E.P. Well, we spent the $5 and now own the record (that actually was released today)… if that is any sign of the quality of their newest work.
