Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: April 3-9

Sunday (4/3) –

Thao and The Get Down Stay Down with Saintseneca

Everyone in this group is so musically talented, it’s insane. Be prepared to be blown away at Headliners.

Tuesday (4/5) –

Teal Grapefruit

This local band is kicking off their April tour at Zbar.

Wednesday (4/6) –

SFJAZZ Collective plays the music of Michael Jackson + Free Pre-Party with DJ Hi-Def

Do502’s VIP giveaway swag for this event is saweet. Free drinks, signed poster and meet-up with SFJAZZ post-show? YAASSS.

Thursday (4/7) –

The Mayor’s Music and Art Series with Frederick The Younger

We always feel super gypped missing these lunch time shows but this week we can finally go! Frederick The Younger folks are also on spring break so they should be ready to let it rip. They also have been sounding awesome, so go check it out.

Old 97’s with American Aquarium

A couple of years ago, the Old 97’s Waterfront show was a blast – fans and bandmates alike were pumped with energy for the event. I expect a similar scenario at Headliners later this week.

Rae Sremmurd with Jack Harlow and Lougz & Rosario

U of L is presenting this show, and although I’ve never heard of these guys (well besides the almost graduate Harlow), if the young whippersnappers are listening to them they must be alright, right?

Beats & Eats: Songkrn, Thai New Year

Food. Jams. Yup.


Friday (4/8) –

Pretty much every venue in town will be poppin’ tonight. BUT WHERE TO GO?! We’ll probably end up at multiple places, too, cause it’s just too hard to decide.

The Kills with Kim & The Created

This badass Brit/American duo are about to tear up Headliners. Like, to pieces. In the best way.

The Front Bottoms

Mercury will be the place to go if you’re looking for something super catchy and upbeat. These young dudes will be just your thing.

Quiet Hollers with Wolkoff and Jesse R. Berlin

Our favorite sad rock band is back for a dark, hot night at our neighborhood Kaiju. The small concert space will be packed so get there early!

Quiet Hollers at Headliners

Bear Medicine, Count This Penny, John Clay

Acoustic guitars, harmonies, flannels – you can expect that and more during this indie evening at Zbar.

Hello Ocho, BRENDA, Brass Bed, Brother Wolves

Looks like Preston will just be filled with Indie rock on Friday…local bands BRENDA and Brother Wolves will be joined by Atlanta’s Hello Ocho and Lafayette, Louisiana’s Brass Bed.

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood

While it’s not really our cup of tea, you have to admit that these two have seen pretty epic success.

REO Speedwagon

Again, not exactly our style, but how often does REO Speedwagon come to town?

Saturday (4/9) –

Torche, Wild Throne, Sweet Cobra, Stagecoach Inferno

Get your earplugs ready for what’s about to be a raw, ferocious show. Perfect for Haymarket’s close quarters.


He’s no stranger to the Louisville area (having most recently been in town in December). You won’t want to miss out on what this dude can do with a bass.

Tech N9ne – Independent Powerhouse Tour 2016

The rapper’s thirteenth studio album, Something Else, was released in 2013 and if you haven’t heard it, you should check it out.

SeepeopleS with Kaleidico and Phourist & the Photons

I think psychedelic is going to be the theme of the night.
