September is a banging month, as is proven by this week’s spectacular lineup of shows.
Sunday (9/11) –
Explosions in the Sky, Lower Dens
Solid start to a week right here. The Iroquois Amphitheater season is coming to a close, with some seriously big names. Get out and enjoy the beautiful space while you still can and the weather is AMAZE!
Tuesday (9/13) –
This free, Haymarket monthly event is always on our list. We love hearing the playlists of some of the Louisville music scene’s favs. This week will include Adam from Dry Summers, Alex Smith from Howell Dawdy & Lydia Burrell, Daniel from Dry Summers and JC from BRENDA.
Wednesday (9/14) –
Charitable Barrels: Whiskey By The Cause – 25 for 25 For Fairness
Haymarket is hot this week, especially with this event for a cause. Come celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Fairness Campaign with Four Roses Bourbon!
Anna Rose, John Clay, Lawrence Taylor
Anna Rose’s voice is powerful and stunning, no doubt. She will leave The New Vintage walls trembling.
Front Country, 10 String Symphony
We saw this bluegrass, Americana band from the Bay Area at ROMP this year. Though CA and bluegrass may not be your traditional combination, they make it work. Check them out at Zbar this week!
Thursday (9/15) –
Greensky Bluegrass, Leftover Salmon, and Cereus Bright
This is a bluegrass fans dream. Prepare yourself for extended jams and stringed instruments for days from some of the best in the business.
Highly Suspect has had a string of sell outs in Louisville – fans keep showing up! I expect the same this time around! It is loud, raw rock and roll…what’s not to like?
This Swedish band sounds really interesting.
Daya, Jojo, Nappy Roots and AMPED
Hear some of your favorite radio hits down at Fourth Street Live on a Thursday night. OKAY.
Friday (9/16) –
Bob Mould Band with Fury Things
The beauty of Bob Mould Band’s music is that it’s perfect for both simple toe-tapping and full out dancing (and obviously everything in between). Perfect for Headliners on a Friday.
Lydia Loveless, Will Courtney & The Wild Bunch
Lydia Loveless has celebrated a new album and a birthday all in the last month. In fact, the year has been pretty great.
Kaleidico, Phourist and the Photons
Head down to 4th Street Live and check out the brand new Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse, as well as some chill-ass tunes from these two Louisville bands.
Saturday (9/17) –
The music of Amos Lee makes you feel good. Every damn time. His new album, Spirit, is more of the same.
I’d be ready for anything at this show.
Butchertown Get Down Week 7: Batman with JP Source
We are approaching the end of this Do502 / Louis’s series. If you haven’t been yet, swing by for some Saturday vibes.
This single day event brings all things related to the Jug Band tradition to Louisville. Headlining the event is one of our favorite folk aficionados, Dom Flemons. The event is free and family friendly.
The R&B Party with DJs Vane and Hi-Def
Galaxie’s OUTERspace is the perfect locale for some R&B goodness.
