Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: July 10-16

It’s here! It’s Forecastle week in The Ville and we’re resting up to get in the mood for what’s for sure gonna be a great weekend on the river. Don’t worry that the nighttime show calendar is a little slim early on – use that chance to set up your viewing schedule at forecastlefest.com (we know it takes a couple of days to figure out how to squeeze everything in…). Keep up with us this week on our socials and check back later for reviews!

Tuesday (7/12) – 

Damn the Witch Siren, She Teen, ATOMO

If the strobe lights and 80s pop outfits featured on their music videos are any indication, Damn the Witch Siren will kill it Tuesday night.

Wednesday (7/13) –

Lavender Country

This falls a little outside of what I’d normally like, but Patrick Haggerty and Lavender Country, with their ’73 self-titled EP praised as the first openly gay country album, peak my interests.

Calliope Musicals, JT & The Kentucky Brushfire

Word on the street is that Calliope Musicals will take the stage with props that may or may not include sparklers, balloons, and Shiner Bock box signs?

Thursday (7/14) –

Maxwell

Prepare for all of the feels. I have goosebumps thinking about the sensuousness about to seep out of those ornate Palace walls.

Forecastle Festival Kick-Off

Pick up your wristbands early to avoid those long lines Friday afternoon and just revel in Scott Carney’s crooning voice, AtG beer in hand. Ideal.

After The Waterfront (Thu-Sat)

Only $5 Thursday night and then free Friday/Saturday, Haymarket has Tomgirl & The Tomgirls, White Reaper, and a Louisville tribute to David Bowie and Prince. What more are you looking for?

Forecastle Kick-Off Show w/Ancient Warfare, Seluah, Ghost Ripper

We know there’s heaps of options for pre-Forecastle parties (it’s tough for us to choose, too) but this should def be a contender.

Friday (7/15) –

FORECASTLE 2016 + Forecastle Late Night: An Evening with Dr. Dog

We’ll have a longer preview out later this week, but hayyyy just wanted to say we’re excited it’s finally Forecastle weekend! If you see us bouncing around between the stages (and hopefully some shade at some point…) or at Headliners for a sweet late night show with Dr. Dog, say hello, y’all.

Howell’s Hoot & Holler Festival Afteroke

This monthly event has never not been one hell of a good time, so I would assume that post-Forecastle singing will be on point.

Nick Dittmeier & The Sawdusters with Justin Wells

If you’re looking for some outdoor music but aren’t quite up for the excitement down on the Waterfront, New Albany’s summer concert series might be just up your alley.

The Black Oil Brothers

Or the bluesey Black Oil Brothers might be your perfect alternative.

Saturday (7/16) –

FORECASTLE 2016 + Forecastle Late Night: 23 String Band and The Pass with Niles Foley

Day 2 (can’t wait for Brittany Howard to sing to my soul ❤ ), followed by our local faves 23 String Band. Bring it on.

insideOUT ft. Spirit Animal with Ed Monk

It’s been a while since these Brooklyn weirdos have graced our city, but we couldn’t be more excited.

Sunday (7/17) –

FORECASTLE 2016

Let Death Cab, Ryan Adams, and Brandi Carlile close out your weekend.

Smithsmas in July: A Smiths cover and DJ night

There are no late night shows tonight so this is the place to be.
