Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: February 5 – 11

Monday (2/6) –

An Open Book: An Evening with Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October

The man has quite the story to tell, and his many musical talents enhance that story. The show, which is now at Headliners, will be one you won’t want to miss.


Tuesday (2/7) –

Rainbow Kitten Surprise, CAAMP

The band’s name alone should be enough to warrant you trading your couch for a spot at Zanzabar. Once there, the Boone, NC natives will have you toe-tapping and humming along all night. And probably all of Wednesday, too.

Wednesday (2/8) – 

International In the Moment

This Jorge Ruiz curated event is taking place at Strive. It is described as “not your usual concert-going experience.”

Thursday (2/9) –

WFPK Jazz Live at Lola with The Afrophysicists

There’s been a lot of hype around this new event. Now that Lola has an official name, it only seems fitting to have a regular jazz series curated by WFPK’s jazz hosts. And good news is that this will be a weekly thing, so even if you can’t make the first one, you have plenty more opportunities to sip and listen.

Howell’s Hoot & Holler Karaoke

Grab the mic and spin the wheel.

Friday (2/10) –

2nd Annual Galentine’s Day Celebration

Girls Rock Louisville and Block Party Handmade Boutique are presenting this now famous “holiday.” Bring some tampons or other period paraphernalia for free entry and enjoy some girl time while listening to 21st Century Fox and viewing local feminist art!

My Crummy Valentine, Do You Love Me Now?, Spettra

Yaaassssssss. You need this to end the work week.

Saturday (2/11) –

Bourbon + B Sides

This Tim Faulkner event has turned into quite the good time. Exclusive music, art, and bourbon make this the spot to be Saturday night.

Kentucky Homefront Radio Show

Be part of the live audience for Kentucky Homefront as Trickster Sister – a Louisville & Philly female trio – serenades you with their indie folk sound.


Nashville’s indie-pop duo will fit in perfectly with the cozy Zbar vibe. And I know we keep saying this, but you have to make sure you’re making it to these Zanzabar shows before their new space opens!

Slow Down Johnny and Trucker Hat Coalition

Jam on, guys.

Valloween! A Costume Dance Party with Slo Jams and Bump and Grind Classics by DJ Persh
