Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: February 26 – March 4

Things are certainly starting to pick up around town. No matter what your tastes/interests are, there is something this week for you. Follow us on social media and see you out!

Monday (2/27) –

Engage Series: A Night with Teddy Abrams

We for real have the best orchestra director around. Come on, drink a beer with Teddy.

Tuesday (2/28) –

Keep Louisville Lyrical: R&B NIght

The New Old Taproom hosts local crowd pleasers like Otis Junior and Kori Black.

Lake Street Dive with Joey Dosik 

Lake Street Dive NEVER disappoints. Take a little week night trip to Lex for this one, you will not be disappointed.

Wednesday (3/1) –

Dance Gavin Dance & CHON

I’m not entirely sure what post-hardcore is, but I’m willing to check it out?

Andy Matter and Ten Wet Dollars / The Katatonics

Andy Matter has been described as a “one make wrecking ball” so this should be interesting.

Justin Lewis Cure The Midweek Blues

If anyone can do it, I think JPL can.

SMUT / No Parents / BOA / Bungalow Betty

Local rock and roll at The Green Room.

Thursday (3/2) –

Dead Thursday Featuring Electric Garden for the Last Time

With Monkey Wrench closing, this regular event is also coming to an end. 😦

Kentucky Derby Festival Unveiled 

I guess it is time to start thinking about Derby? I’m not mad.

Five Things Live with Tracy Clayton

This WFPL podcast hosted by Tara Anderson presents a famous Louisville Buzzfeed podcaster.

Dusty Leigh / Struggle Jennings/ Bubba Sparxx / Haystak

Dusty Leigh is a local guy, and this free show is a big ‘ol thank you to Louisville fans.

WFPK Jazz Live at Lola with Dick Sisto Trio, Tyrone Wheeler and Mike Hyman

With all the hype from La La Land, Jazz is making a comeback.

Corey Smith

If the Mercury Ballroom and country are your thing, you’ll probably like this. He’s a former teacher, so that is kind of cool.

Papadosio with Jaw Gems

I was impressed as hell last time Papadosio was in town. The jam is definitely worth a trip to Headliners.

Jared & The Mill

I don’t usually think of Phoenix and indie rock, but I’m interested in what this sounds like.

Friday (3/3) – 

Nothing, Pleasures of the Flesh, Wicked Garden

Nothing returns to town for a Haymarket back room show. It’ll be loud and a good time, especially with those $5 Buffalo Trace shots.

Agent Orange, The Queers, Guttermouth, The Atom Age // The Cure’s 3rd Anniversary Party

Zanzabar is still getting things together for the big reopening, so The Cure is hosting this one. Apparently it coincides with Cure’s 3rd Anniversary? Nevertheless, head over for some punk rock and stuff.

Tift Merritt

Tift Merritt has been blessing the world with her thoughtful creations for a long time now. Her latest work, produced by Sam Beam, adds to her already impressive list.

Live Music Friday featuring Tyrone Cotton

Tyrone Cotton is a Louisville musician that we haven’t checked out, yet. This may change soon.

Misty Mountain String Band

Merle’s Whiskey Kitchen is a nice change of pace if you’re looking for something more low key.

Vertebreaker Tour featuring Herobust

Vertebreaker references breaking your vertebrae, I believe. Sounds rowdy.

Ethan and Joey Live at Hard Rock Cafe

Check out this Lexington, acoustic duo!

There are several weekly, regular DJ sets happening at Galaxie, Decca, Kaiju and The Pearl. Hit them up, too!

Saturday (3/4) –

Live Music with Mickey Clark

Goodwood has been on roll here lately.

Maren Morris – The Hero Tour, with Devin Dawson

Maren Morris hits the road following her Grammy win. This Headliners show sold out pretty quickly.

Lucero with Esme Patterson 

We have to give another plug for a Lexington show, because, well, it is Lucero.

Alone & Together Featuring Jonathan Wood, Cat Casual, and Sara Soltau

“Alone & Together is a new concert series featuring prominent Louisville musicians performing solo sets, followed by a collaborated improvised performance at the end of the night.” This sounds like my kind of Saturday night.

Bourbon + B Sides

Tim Faulkner Gallery will be LIT. The crowds for this monthly event have gotten bigger and bigger each round.
