Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: June 26 – July 2

Apologies, folks. The 90+ degree heat this weekend knocked me on my ass for a bit, which is my lame excuse for this post tardiness.  There are many things that you need to be aware of this week, however.  Get out for something!

Sunday (6/26) –

John Paul White, The Secret Sisters

Goodness this is a big Sunday night. John Paul White, formerly of the The Civil Wars, has new music for us and it sounds unbelievable. From our singular exposure to The Secret Sisters, these actual sisters will get the evening moving in the right direction. Perfect Sunday vibes.

Joe Purdy, Garrison Starr

The New Vintage welcomes the remarkable Joe Purdy for a calming Sunday night stint. Purdy, who already has quite the list of releases, has new music to share from his new album, Who Will Be Next?

Turnpike Troubadours with Nikki Lane

To start, Nikki Lane?!  Ms. Lane definitely has that Nashville air and next time I’m in her town I’ll have to check out her clothing store, High Class Hillbilly.  YAS. The Turnpike Troubadours gritty, country rock and roll fits well with the Louisville music scene, even though they hail from Oklahoma.

Monday (6/27) –

Ani DiFranco

Ani DiFranco is a multi-faceted artist in every possible sense.  She’s a strong woman with convictions that she will share- admirable hardly describes this lady.

David Bazan, Laura Gibson

David Bazan is indie rock gold. (Also, feels this song.)

Tuesday (6/28) – 

Happy Hour Concert: Nick Dittmeier and the Sawdusters

Happy Hour with some local country jams. HELL YES.

Robert Ellis, Tom Brosseau

To start, Robert Ellis can play the guitar. His self titled album is chock full of Americana tones that are hard not to love. He’s also a looker.

Wednesday (6/29) –

WFPK Waterfront Wednesday with Hayes Carll, Dylan LeBlanc, and BRENDA

BRENDA is clearly on a mother f-ing roll of late and it is time everybody starts going with them. They are vivacious and kind of crazy; the definition of entertainment. Dyland LeBlanc also has picked up some momentum with this wistful voice and songs. Rounding out the night is Grammy Nominated Americana singer Hayes Carll. If you haven’t heard his name, well, sorry.

Passion Pit

If this isn’t sold out yet, it will be soon, so let’s start with this: get your tickets STAT. Passion Pit has been around since my high school days and always leave me with a peachy feeling.

Tapping Party for Kolsch Lager with Niles Foley

Scott Moore of Niles Foley has a lot on his plate right now, but celebrating tapping a Klosch should always be a priority.

Thursday (6/30) –


Brian O’Neal’s jazzy compositions are nothing short of suave. The man is clearly a talented musician but also prides himself in his humanitarian work.  I’m a fan already.

Friday (7/1) – 

Frederick The Younger, Dietrich Jon, Typhoid Beach

Kaiju’s back room is a sweaty, divey and Friday night perfection. Frederick The Younger may blow up the spot, so be there to see it for yourself.

Science Friction: Live DJ Sets / Dance Party with Sam Sneed and Alex Bell

Dance magic dance.

Saturday (7/2) – 

Summer Social Series Week 2: Bonez, DJ Hi Definition

We heard that week one of this four week series went well and based on what I know about both of these artists, this Saturday should be no different.

Softcheque Album Release Party with Tyler Dippold

We are hugely excited for our friend Tyler Dippold and this show. You should recognize Tyler’s baritone voice from his work with 1200, but this night he is stepping out on his own. He opens for Softcheque, an other worldly group that has a new record coming out.


IamIs Record Release with Cut Family Foundation and Adventure

Shoot, it seems that everyone has an album coming out this time of the year. They are releasing old school with a cassette package that looks groovy and sounds alright, too.

Jameron & DJ Alli

Here’s your Galaxie Saturday option this week. Legit AF.
