With this HELLISH election season finally come to an end, we all will need some stuff to get our mind off of the results. Don’t fret, there are loads of options.
Sunday (11/6) –
Man Man’s frontman Honus Honus is out on his own. Haymarket plays host to this Sunday night banger. The forthcoming album, USE YOUR DELUSION sounds exciting. Pre-order here and get some tight extra stuff.
Monday (11/7) –
Brooklyn and experimental rock just makes so much sense.
The man can spit out some rhymes.
Congrats to Joann, our Band of Horses giveaway winner! We are ready for this show, big time.
Hopefully BJ Barham and crew are not still hurt about the recent U of L thumping of their beloved NC State, because Louisville will always welcome this group with open arms.
Tuesday (11/8) –
Go somewhere and throw a couple back while the votes are tallied, or find something else to do to take your mind away from this insanity. BUT GO VOTE FIRST!
Stoop Kids are a NOLA band with all kinds of flavor (so, punny.) No for real, there are so many elements to there music, Zbar better be ready. Opening are two of Louisville’s own.
Wednesday (11/9) –
Big Gigantic was a hit closing the Boom Stage at Forecastle this year. Mercury Ballroom is a great place for this electronic, sax-heavy duo.
Boston funk masters, Lettuce, are back again at Headliners. If you missed them a year ago, this is your chance!
Kaiju’s back room may be tiny and grimey but the space is consistently playing host to some cool ass bands.
Louisville loves this guy. The Bomhard Theater plays host to this magnificent, musical storyteller.
We trust the Vectortone boys, so these multi-faceted musicians should make this Zanzabar show one not to miss.
FLASH BACK. Metro Station is back. The New Vintage is hosting a meet and greet.
Thursday (11/10) –
For some further insight on how cool these dudes are, read THIS!
The Reverend and his big damn band knows how to please the Mercury crowd.
AJJ has a music video where it’s several dudes’ abs that are singing to us. I expect quite the show at Zbar.
Friday (11/11) –
Britt’s fav childhood band is back at the Palace. If you’re looking for some discounted tickets, Groupon has a deal!
It’ll be difficult to not dance and hum along with this breath of fresh air Nashville quintet.
The amazing organization that got us here to Louisville, Teach Kentucky, is hosting this conversation with two visionaries. Dave Eggers headed a Donald Trump protest movement (3o Days, 50 Songs), in which Jim James took part with “Same Old Lies.” I have a feeling this discussion is going to be deep.
What better location than MagBar for this local vinyl release show? I would expect to see all of the bands’ loyal followers to be in attendance, so it should be a good time.
Don’t leave your earplugs at home for this one. So much power and energy.
Saturday (11/12) –
WAIT. K-Ci & JoJo are coming to the Yum! Center?! And Ginuwine?!
Until recently, I didn’t know much about Wheeler Walker Jr. But I can’t think of a better headliner for Birdcloud, especially with the catchy ballad, “Fuck You Bitch.”
Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to get folky with these extensively talented groups.
