Panic! At The Disco – “Death of a Bachelor Tour” with Misterwives and Saint Motel

Betcha the YUM Center was packed for this lineup.

So apparently a bunch of local musicians got together to create this multi-dimensional experience of Jesus Christ Superstar. Also, apparently, they’ve had a good time putting this together.

Monday (4/10) – 

Todrick Hall Presents: Straight Outta Oz

Todrick Hall certainly has an interesting background – starting out on American Idol and then growing his fame on YouTube – so I can only imagine that this album tour will be quite the event.

Tuesday (4/11) –

Parsonsfield, Animal Years

These guys will be bringing with them lots of strings, and even an accordion. You ready for some folky action?

Wednesday (4/12) –

Periphery. Sonic Unrest II

Show up to this one ready to rock.

Cocktails inspired by music (Calexico and Mariachi El Bronx).


Thursday (4/13) – 

Wax Fang Victory Laps Album Listening Party

Waiiiit a minute. First listen of Victory Laps? A free LP for early arrivals? Chance to win a Crosley turntable? AND ATG BREWS?! Okay, you’ve convinced me.

Rock the Roof: A Battle of the Bands to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters featuring, Street Lights, Hayleigh Martin and more

Some music with a cause is always a win.

Bombadil and Typhoid Beach

It’s been a minute since Bombadil was last in town. Their folky vibes will be exactly what you need on a Thursday.

Friday through Sunday (4/14-16)

Friday (4/14) –

This Ben Folds/Louisville Orchestra combo was incredible last time around. It is a safe bet this will be the same.

The founding member of Modern Lovers, singer-songwriter Jonathan Richman will certainly entertain you at Zbar.

Voodoo Economics / Johnny Conqueroo / Winston on Wheels

Haymarket will be reppin’ regional tunes from these three bands.

Howell’s Hoot & Holler Karaoke

This isn’t your typical karaoke. It’s kind of extreme. Plus tacos.

Saturday (4/15) –

GonzoFest 2017

GonzoFest has become one of our favorite spring time event. This year it changes again, with a new location (the Downtown Public Library), and free admission (a donation is accepted, though!) but the same Gonzo feel.

We’re p. excited about this one, especially after having been listening to the band’s newest album Notes of Blue (SO to WFPK for playing lots of it). Sing it to us, Jay.

Six Organs of Admittance

A little new wave here, a little psychedelic there – should be a good one.
