Our Louisville.com run is over, but our desire to share our can’t miss shows of the week is not. We’ve moved the party to our site, so now you can get your preview and your review ALL IN ONE SPOT. WHATSSUPPPP.
Tuesday (11/3) –
Kat Edmonson with special guest Milton
Kat Edmonson’s voice is one of the most distinct in the game. At the Bomhard Theater, she will sound fantastic.
Yellowcard and New Found Glory with Tiger’s Jaw
I should probably be slightly embarrassed to admit that I once loved Yellowcard and New Found Glory, but it is true: the 15 year old me used to thrive on the emotional turmoil of their music and, well, being that age and all. One of our common accomplices (here’s your shout out, Nichole) was a self-described “emo kid” back in the day, so she’s been fired up for this night since the announcement. Needless to say, we’ll be there, likely screaming along with both bands from our former lives.
Wednesday (11/4) –
Benyaro, J. Mitchell of Nellie Pearl
From what I’ve gathered, Ben Musser creates some beautifully complex stuff. Musser’s project, Benyaro, most often consists of him and one other musician, but from listening to their recorded stuff, you would never assume that. I imagine I’ll be wowed at this one.
Thursday (11/5) –
The 2015 Louisville Music Awards
You voted, now it is time to see who won! 1200 and Rachel Grimes will deliver the tunes for Louisville’s own night of music homage. The event is free and highlights the stellar music that is coming out of the city that we love.
Son Little has been getting some decent WFPK play – I guarantee you recognize “The River” – and he has spanking new music out, including this jam:
I’m into it. Also, it’s been a while since we’ve hung with the Discount Guns guys, so a Thursday night at Zbar seems to be in order.
Friday (11/6) –
David Mayfield, Sean McConnell
If you recognize the Mayfield last name, that makes a lot of sense. Jessica Lea Mayfield, his sister, had a pretty big summer – she was part of a project with Seth Avett. David has played alongside The Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons, so he’s like, really good. He and his band, The David Mayfield Parade will be stopping by the New Vintage.
Big K.R.I.T. Kritically Acclaimed Tour
Yes, his tour is called the Kritically Acclaimed Tour. Big K.R.I.T. had a great crowd at Forecastle and less than 4 months later, we expect the Mississippi rapper will fill up the Mercury Ballroom. He is one of a string of rappers that are coming through town (Mac Miller, Kevin Gates, as well).
Saturday (11/7) –
This local folky pop band will be launching their album, Riding on a Wire, at Galaxie’s Outer Space. Be on the lookout for our album commentary as part of our new Lit Listens series with Do502!
Little Hurricane is a San Diego based bluesy-rock band that has developed a following largely from their outstanding live shows. We’re in this “business” of following the music scene here in Louisville for shows like this one.
Captain Midnight Band, Vessel, Slow Down Johnny, Restless Leg String Band, Lazy Sunday, Driftwood Gypsy
It’ll be a packed evening at Headliners as a wide array of bands take the stage, from all parts of the country.
