Iroquois Amphitheater hosts this doozie. Be ready to throw it back a few years with some of your favorite alt rock bands.
When she’s finished her opening act for Dispatch + Guster, Ms. Patterson is heading to Dusty’s living room for a more intimate setting. This. Will. Be. Wonderful.

WFPK Waterfront Wednesday: Pokey LaFarge, Robyn Hitchcock, Carly Johnson
It is time for another WFW! Pokey drew a MASSIVE crowd last time he was here for a Waterfront show. Expect the same as he has some new music and that same ol’ charisma to share with us.
Journey with special guest Asia
Get your vocal chords warmed up for some quintessential sing-a-longs.
EODM will forever be synonymous with a horrific event, and their resiliency should be remembered. On a lighter note, they are apparently scoring Super Troopers 2, which is fucking incredible.
Planes Mistaken for Stars, Black God
Hump day blues? These guys will reinvigorate you.
Honestly, I’ve never been to Flat 12 before and this is maybe the ideal situation for me to check it out.
Thursday (6/29) –
You mean, hang out in Lola’s private room + interact with Teddy + get a Forecastle preview + taste Four Roses….all for a good cause?! Sign. Me. Up.
A Thursday at the track might be nice with a soundtrack from KM’s brain.
Mike Dillon is one gifted guy.
Tonstartssbandht with Cooper Davis, Rosenblum Band
It would be brothers who are behind the made up name that you’ll need to Google in order to pronounce. But for real, you won’t want to miss this one.
WQMF’s Hairband Summer Jam featuring L.A. Guns
Get your hairspray purchased and your tights laundered.
Friday (6/30) –
Live Music Friday with The Wildflower Chronicles
How can you not love any band that brings an accordion on stage?
Holy shit. Cindy Wilson of The B-52s is playing Zbar. And our very own Otis Junior is opening up. This is spectacular.
A Tribute to Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks featuring The Allmanacs and Friends
This is one Mercury tribute show that I could get behind.
The Local Lineup
Our faves Discount Guns are playing this new ATG monthly summer show. I think there is a new Night Visions Radio beer can being released and we haven’t seen the DG guys in a minute. Happy weekend friends!
Sleazy McQueen at Bumpin’ On the Patio
Now that it’s nice out, Decca has moved its weekly Bumpin’ event to the patio. If you haven’t explored out there before, check it out this Friday.
Saturday (7/1) –
Sawyer Fredericks, Gabriel Wolfchild and The Northern Light, Haley Johnsen
18 year old Sawyer Fredericks won The Voice in 2015 as part of Team Pharrell, so you know this one will be pretty good.
Norman Brown, Richard Elliot, Rick Braun with special guest Cindy Bradley
Head out to Iroquois for this installment of The Summer Jazz and R&B Series.
Goodwood has seriously been killing it with their live music game. Speaking of, it’s appropriate for me to crack open a Louisville Lager right now, right?
Po’ Brothers, Jet Black Orchid, Broad Arrow
The former Louisvillians are returning for a hometown show – show support at Haymarket!
Doctor Girlfriend, Dietrich John, Dream Eye Color Wheel
I don’t know about you, but Kaiju is one of our frequent stops as we’re heading home, and it has never disappointed.
