Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: October 23 – 29

With the actual “holiday” falling on a Monday this year, many venues are hosting their Halloween events a few days early. I hope you have your plans set and costumes in order! Plus, there are a few big time local events with the 2016 LMA’s, Twin Limb’s album release, and cover shows galore.

Sunday (10/23) –

Gavin DeGraw & Andy Grammer

Two favorites from our younger days in one night? Winner.

Monday (10/24) –

Dean Ween Group, with The Meat Puppets

I think there are a lot of people pretty excited to see one half of Ween, even for a Monday.

Monday Night Frights at The Ton: Poltergeist, Insidious, The Conjouring

Get over your Monday blues with some reliably good cocktails and Halloween movies.

Tuesday (10/25) –

PechaKucha Night to discuss race, ethnicity and culture

The PechaKucha format originated in Tokyo and involves speakers using 20 slides with 20 seconds on each slide to speak about a particular topic. The focus on this event is so relevant and a great conversation starter. Check it out.

Live instrumental electronic band, STS9 will light up Mercury Ballroom.

KMAC Music Series: Helado Negro

We saw Helado Negro when he christened Galaxie’s outerSPACE. I hope he brings his tinsel friends again.

Walker Lukens 

This Austin-based song man has a new album, Never Understood, and a sound that definitely has me interested to see things live.

Thursday (10/27) – 

2016 Louisville Music Awards

The votes have been placed, now let’s see who wins! We haven’t heard if there will be any live performances, but the artists up for the awards are enough for me.

Horses, Haunts and Hooch

We enjoy all three of these things, so this sounds nice.

Friday (10/28) – 

Twin Limb Release Show with James Lindsey and Teach Me Equals

Let’s kick of Twin Limb’s huge fall lineup and celebrate their new album the best way we know how… with a party at Headliners. This is Twin Limb’s first full length album and they are heading out on the road with Jim James.
