There are a hella options this week. If we end up getting any of the snow that we’re forecast to, we’re all gonna be holed up and need to get out. Here’s your perfect list of excuses. Check social media for our live adventures and hit up LiveMusicLou.com afterwards for some pictures and comments!
Zach Schmidt, Brent Mathis, Tim Delonjay
A pretty chill start to a week that might end up being epic.
Greensky Bluegrass- Record Release Show
Kentucky obviously loves its bluegrass, so it only makes sense that Michigan’s Greensky Bluegrass celebrates their new record with us. If you like jamming to some bluegrass-stringed goodness, this is definitely a can’t miss.
If hoola-hooping isn’t you scene, then this might be a better option for your Tuesday night. Those Darlins have recently shared that they will be taking an indefinite hiatus after they finish their January tour, so you should probably do your best to check them out this week.
This is gonna be a loud one, guys. BRENDA has been very active in town as of late and made WFPK’S top 100 Albums of 2015. Closing out the evening though, is Bully, headed by Alicia Bognanno, who should also be known as the truth.
Leon Russell with Justin Paul Lewis
For starters, Justin Paul Lewis is already having a hell of a 2016. The man is popping up everywhere- go you! JPL will be opening for Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Leon Russell, so like that’s pretty cool.
White Reaper with special guest Spirit Week
White Reaper will always turn up.
Naytronix, TED TYRO, Lazy Heart
You may recognize the man behind Naytronix, you may not. Nate Brenner is most widely known for his bass skills in the highly experimental band tUnE-yArDs, but he’s out on his own for this one. His sophomore album, Mister Divine, was released this past fall, and continues to show his creative, psychedelic side. I’m interested to see what this looks and sounds like on the Zbar stage.
Pop Up! Music and Art Show with Frederick The Younger, Kate Wakefield and local artists
Live music, art, Haymarket? Fabulous.
Wax Fang with the Features and Ancient Warfare
These guys have been rolling the past six months including two stints with WFPK: a 2015 Waterfront Wednesday closing performance and the recent 20th Anniversary Jam. Wax Fang has been one of Louisville’s favorite local bands for quite some time, with some time spent rebuilding, but their recent string of shows tells me they are back and ready to go.
Louisville on Tap and B3 Bash: A Celebration of Bacon, Bourbon and Beer
BEER BEER BEER BEER BEER. There are two beer-centric events Saturday evening, and if you’re willing to pay (or win some tickets somehow) they both sound like a lot of fun. And yummy. And drunk.
Friends Party featuring Powell with New Moons and Bruised Fruit
Parties with friends are always a ball.
