Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: August 7-13

We are headed back to school this week, and fortuitously for us, the week starts off light so we can get back into our school routine. And there is some built in Olympics viewing time. That being said, the lull doesn’t last long.

Sunday (8/6) –

Broncho, Billy Changer

Okay this isn’t exactly the most chill way to get the week started, but we will absolutely go into week one with a bang.

Alice Cooper

If this is the other option for a Sunday night, then PHEW, we’re all in for a crazy week.

Tiki Sunday

Tuesday (8/9) –

Denny Laine, The Cryers 

Anyone who worked with Paul McCartney for 10 years is a winner in my book. Plus we get to see him up close at New Vintage? Yes, please.

Wednesday (8/10) –

Whiskey Shivers

So it’s the OFFICIAL FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. We’ll be definitely needing something to take the edge off and I think the strings and sounds of Whiskey Shivers will do the trick.

BRENDA Unplugged Featuring Guests The Lopez and Charlie Walsh

This could be really interesting. Lydia House, which also should be known for their dank brunches and ramen, will be hosting the rambunctious band in a more subdued setting.

Thursday (8/11) – 

Warren Byrom (Record Release), Idiot Glee, New Mother

Some of our neighbors to the east are coming to town to show whats good with the Lex music scene. Our friends with Lexington ties speak very highly of all these folks.

Friday (8/12) –


I dare you to not be obsessed with Landlady after seeing them once.

Joyce Manor, Diet Cig, Tiny Moving Parts, Boner City

Think of a giant pop/punk rock party. It’s going to be a fun night on Preston.

Foxhollow Farm Sunset Concert Series Featuring Midnight Vultures: The Music of Beck – Cheyenne Mize with Curio Key Club

If you haven’t been out to Foxhollow yet, it’s a beautiful way to spend your Friday night. Beck covers should be pretty alright on the farm.

Bicentennial Park Summer Concert Series: Buffalo Rodeo with Voodoo Economics

Same sentiment about this summer concert series. You have to go at least once.

Saturday (8/13) –

Cosmic Incantations

“Sci-fi visuals and retro-futuristic cosmic jams all night long.” Yaaasssss.

Butchertown Get Down Week 2: Bad Boys with DJ Hi-Definition and Bonez

Last week’s turnout was pretty decent. Plus Louis’s back patio is ideal for Saturday night hangz.


CHEW and Shadowpact

Atlanta band CHEW has passed through Lou a few times, and we interviewed them before one of those stops. Check em out.

Jacob Resch and Hoosier with Jimmy and the Two Toned Leg Benders

Young Indiana rockers will fill Headliners with good vibes and multiple genres of music.

Ben Helm EP Release, Katie James

New Vintage release shows are always going to be a safe option.

Dawg Yawp, Kate Wakefield, Tender Mercy, Soft Self Portraits

Expect a little of everything at Kaiju, which really should be a norm by now.
