Two of our monthly favorites fall during this week, so we’ll for sure be out for those. Check back here for reviews and photos from the shows we hit up.
Sunday (12/6) –
Ryan Bingham is a young musician who has had just about as much success as a person could have, doing things in his own way. The folks at Headliners have been saying all week that tickets are going fast, which makes it sound like Louisville is showing up to see this talented man.
If you feel like heading to Lexington for the night, this Bogart’s show is going to be a good one. Sleater-Kinney’s highly acclaimed rocking is on full display in their newest album, No Cities to Love, which will be epic live.
Wednesday (12/9) –
It’s already time for another Winter Wednesday – where has the time gone?! Bobby Long is an English swooner whose acoustic show is sure to wow us. And you know we always love a Quiet Hollers set.
Chris Stapleton has had a big year, being lauded as taking back the entire country music genre. Stapleton and many other big name country musicians will take over the Louisville Palace for an all acoustic set.
For a Wednesday night at The New Vintage, this sounds like a great option. The Tunesmiths are always fun, and Maximon has had a lot of buzz around town, so this might be the night to check them out. Headlining the evening is Lovedrug, a Nashville band with a new album to share. They’re hard to peg, but hit the right notes with all kinds of music fans.
Thursday (12/10) –
This month’s communion show includes several Nashville groups that are definite “you oughta know” bands. It is always a good time, and a great way to see (and usually meet) on-the-rise names in the comfort of Zbar.
Headliners will be the perfect venue for the 7 piece band’s set. The combination of horns and strings and keys (and everything in between) stretches beyond any one genre of music and pulls you in – be prepared to walk away from this show wowed.
Friday (12/11) –
The MASSIVE compilation of Louisville music deserves a party to celebrate. The two night celebration includes tunes from Bus Hus, The Cut Family Foundation, Cheyenne Mize, Julia Purcell, Insect Policy, Satellite Twin and The Winger Brothers.
Over the Rhine is a much loved band here in Louisville, so an evening at Bomhard Theater with OTR and Justin Paul Lewis is sure to be special.
Saturday (12/12) –
Night two of the partying should be just as fun as the first.
You can’t really go wrong with a little Saturday evening rap show.
