We’re back to school, and 2016 is set to get rolling with a celebration of the music scene linchpin, WFPK, and its 20th Anniversary in Louisville. We think it’ll be a rocking party at The Brown. Check social media for live updates of the shows we are at, and come back here for a review afterwards.

The Mayor’s Music and Art Series with Quiet Hollers
This monthly lunch event with Mayor Greg Fischer always has us jealous. And with Quiet Hollers’ poignant melodies reverberating through Metro Hall, we’re fired up we won’t be there.

Who doesn’t love concerts with a cause? The night’s lineup will all be in support of National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
What is American Culture featuring William Harvey of Juilliard with Cher Von and Tyler Dippold
This 10 year old project began with Juilliard grad William Harvey and will include locals Cher Von and Tyler Dippold. The evening looks like it will be an eye opening experience, crossing cultural divides and promoting understanding.
The Cleveland vets, x_x, are back together and will most certainly bring their ambiguous (blank) rock to Zbar.

Wax Fang, Twin Limb, Ben Sollee, and members of Houndmouth are all Live Music Lou (and the greater community) favorites that will be something else on one single bill.
