Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: November 20 – 26

Thanksgiving week means over-indulgence, be it food, drink, family, shopping, whatever. Get out of the house, get away from the crazy uncle and check out a show. It is always a refuge for me…and there are some goodies this week.

Sunday (11/20) –

The Temptations & The Four Tops

Legend……..wait for it…………. Ary.

Alanna Royale, Zach Longoria Project

Alanna Royale always impressed. Each time she and the boys return, the crowd grows in size a little bit. Even though it is a Sunday, I hope that trend continues.

Bonnie Bishop Acoustic Trio with Alex Wright Duo

Bonnie Bishop was a part of the Waterfront Wednesday series this year. If you liked what you heard, which I’m pretty confident you did, come for this acoustic Sunday evening set.

*Update: the show has been unfortunately be canceled without a planned make up date.

Frontier Ruckus

We saw Frontier Ruckus in Dusty’s living room for a Living Room Series show. They are the definition of pleasing to the ears.


Monday (11/21) –

True Widow, Mary Lattimore

The gritty electric sounds that emanate from the speakers when True Widow is on stage will help you forget whatever anxiety you have about the upcoming holidays.

Tuesday (11/22) –

John Paul White, with The Kernal

John Paul White knows how to write some good ass music. As a part of The Civil Wars, the man won several Grammy’s and now on his own, continues to craft thoughtful and meaningful work. Beulah is beautiful.

Citizen, The Superweaks, The Foxery, Exister

If Monday’s Zbar show didn’t do the trick, this one should.

Wednesday (11/23) –

Friendsgiving: A Celebration of the Family We’ve Found

Louis’s has definitely found its niche and people here in town. Celebrate with scrumptious food, cheap/strong drinks, local DJ sets and your framily.

Jack Harlow and The Homies, with Special Guest Well$ and Brxtn

Come support one of Lou’s fav young rappers at one of Lou’s fav music spots.

Tans-giving Eve at Baxter’s

I’ll be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of Baxter’s after a discriminatory situation I experienced there, but I am a fan of Tony and The Tanlines and Thanksgiving Eve out with friends.

Thankful Dead with KGB

The Monkey Wrench is our go-to neighborhood spot. We love the new menu and they love bringing in the best local jammers to pay tribute to the greats.

Friday (11/25) –

Jim James with Twin Limb

The world is pretty hyped for this tour. Both Louisville artists are closely tied to each other and each have new albums to share. Jim James’ new album is a dramatic change from his MMJ stuff, so be prepared for a more low-key vibe. And Twin Limb always mesmerizes with that accordion and those harmonies. I feel like Louisville will show out for this post-TDay Palace party. Check out this cool photo from Shaky Knees this year of the whole gang on stage together!

A Tribute to Billy Joel and Elton John, Back 2 Back – A Cover Up Concert

Everybody loves a good cover…especially when it is two epic sing-a-long artists such as these.

Saturday (11/26) –

Luke Bell

Round out your Thanksgiving weekend with a little solo honky tonk from a good-lookin’ bearded fella, who has all kinds of stories to tell, being a former ranch hand turned musician.

Crushed Out, Boner City

Head to NuLu to shop small, and then stick around for Crushed Out’s positive energy.


Galaxie always hosts fun DJs and dance parties. Work off some of that home cooking at our fav NuLu joint.
