Lake Street Dive NEVER disappoints. Take a little week night trip to Lex for this one, you will not be disappointed.
Wednesday (3/1) –
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.

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