Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: May 28 – June 3

Sunday (5/28) – 

Roger Waters “Us + Them”

The man is a legend and isn’t afraid to show his political chops. The end. Bravo. Encore.

Monday (5/29) – 

Melodime, Brooks Ritter

Stripped down sets tonight. Might be what you need after an eventful Memorial Day.

Tuesday (5/30) –

Franz Ferdinand 

Our friend Beaver has been talking about this for literal months, so we’re excited about seeing this Scottish band live.

Wednesday (5/31) – 

Diet Cig, Sports

Check out Leo’s interview with Diet Cig. This duo’s live show is legendary, we caught them briefly at Shaky Knees a few years ago, but be aware: their poppy punk, fun vibe is more than it seems.

Waterfront Wednesday: The Mavericks, Hollis Brown, Peter Searcy

The weather is gearing up to be beautiful, once again, so head down to the Waterfront for our favorite summertime event.

Flat12 Garage Sound Series

Flat12 has a party barn? Okayyyyyy.

Thursday (6/1) –

The Mayor’s Music Series: The Jesse Lees

During the summer months, we will step out of Metro Hall for some outdoor lunch tunes. The Jesse Lees is one of Otis Jr’s project’s and we all know everything he touches is gold.

Todd Snider with Elizabeth Cook

Todd Snider’s second home may as well be Louisville – he has been here numerous times over the last five years.

King Mud, Fuzzqueen, Deep State

King Mud is a Fort Wayne band, so we’re in, obviously.

Mothers / Doctor Girlfriend / GRLwood

We’ve chatted with Mothers before and make sure to check out their sets anytime we can. Highly recommended.

Friday-Sunday (6/2-6/4) –

Bunbury Music Festival

If you’re able to make the trek up to Cincinnati for the weekend, you’re in for a riverfront treat. This year’s fest features two main and two smaller stages for the prime experience. We’ll have a special preview of the festival up later this week, so be on the lookout!

Friday-Saturday (6/2-6/3) –

2017 Germantown Schnitzelburg Blues Festival

Who knew this little gem existed? We’re bad Gtown residents apparently…

Friday (6/2) –

With so many of our favorites in one evening, it’s gonna be a busy evening.

Fast Forward FF w/ Bixel Boys and NVR

Lunazul and Red Bull sponsor this Night Visions Radio monthly party. Ooooooh buddy.

San Fermin

We have loved San Fermin from the moment we first saw their live set in Atlanta four years ago. The beautiful thing about this multi-piece indie band is they have the ability to morph into whatever Ellis Ludwig-Leone thinks up. And usually that is some pretty cool stuff.

Old Crow Medicine Show Performs Blonde On Blonde

OCMS knows how to put a good show on… and they’re playing Bob Dylan to boot? Goodness gracious.


Willie Nelson & Family

Willie Nelson is down the road at the Horseshoe Casino, so we have to include him on this week’s Can’t Miss.

Sidewalk Chalk, In Lightning

Sidewalk Chalk has played Haymarket a dozen times at least, but they’re moving on up to the new Zbar. They’re another multi-faceted band that has certainly has withstood the test of time.

Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line

Check out Mayor Jeff M. Gahan and the City of New Albany’s Bicentennial Park Summer Concert Series.

Goodwood Brewing hosts two Louisville artists.

Tony and The Tanlines

Free dance party at 4th Street Live.
