Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: August 21-27

Take advantage of your restful moments this week because it is going to take some stamina to get through it! We will attempt to hit as many of these as we can, starting with Sunday. We better see you out!

Sunday (8/21) – 

Carl Broemel, Daniel Martin Moore

Sunday Fundays at Zbar with Vectortone have offish become a thing. Broemel of MMJ has a new album, 4th of July, that all of Louisville needs to hear. Joining him is another KY act that is always a good time. See you soon, Carl and Daniel!

Listening Party and Artist Signing

If you can’t convince yourself that a late Sunday night is what your soul needs, then get your Carl Broemel fix listening to the new album and eating donuts at Guestroom Records.

Tuesday (8/23) – 

Ke$ha and The Creepers: Fuck The World Tour

Ke$ha’s rough go of things in the last year is unimaginable but so relevant. Her transparency as a human dealing with the aftermath of assault trumps her star power, making the talented woman so relatable. This show has been sold out forevs…we’re jealous of you cool cats who get to see her in person.

Wednesday (8/24) – 

An Evening of Music and Comedy with Creed Bratton

It’s becoming a common statement: Vectortone is slinging the entertainment gems. Aubrey’s high school bestie, Molly, was/is a huge fan of The Office, so we’ll definitely pulling out our Headliners Frequent Flyer passes for this one! (P.S. you can purchase a “last part of the year” pass for a discounted price that is SOOOO worth it!!!)

Joshua Powell & The Great Train Robbery, Annapurna

Florida + Indiana isn’t necessarily what I think of when it comes to folk artistry. Apparently it has worked for Joshua Powell & The Great Train Robbery.

Thursday (8/25) – 

Ben Rector: The Biggest Tour I Have Done So Far

Ben Rector played the old Grill at Centre College one year and Aubrey happened to be at that show. He plays catchy, light stuff.

The Weeks, Becca Mancari

The Weeks have never disappointed us, and there’s no way they will this round at Zanzabar.

The Bicentennial Park Summer Concert Series: Parker Millsap with Brooks Ritter

Parker Millsap opened up for New Albany’s Houndmouth fairly recently, so it goes without saying that Kentuckiana will likely show out for the bluesy, Americana singer songwriter.
