Beaver was pretty mad to have missed them when they were at Headliners with Mac Sabbath, so GOOD THING THEY’RE BACK.

Broncho, Billy Charger

Broncho is baaaaaack. They’re always a damn good time.

ATG is once again hosting the official event – come by and hang out with Maximón and Royal Teeth, and pick up your weekend wristband early!

The Unheard: Florence Price’s Lost String Quartet

This collaboration between the Muhammad Ali Center and WUOL should prove to be a magical night of classical music from the legendary Florence Price.

Bourbon & Beats

Join the Forecastle Foundation and Nellie Pearl at TAJ for some pre-forecastle jams, drinks, and karaoke.

Thursday Patio Tunes: Pedal Party

I’m not entirely sure what psychedelic soundtrack music means, but I think Lydia House’s patio is pretty great, so it works.

Boner City, DTPB, Joy Kills, Beach Daze, Mosquito

Local music ftw.

Unofficial Forecastle Pre-Party: Cycles at Time & Space

Yet another pre-Forecastle event (tho this one is unofficial). For this one, it’s psychedelic rock from Denver-based Cycles.

Night Visions Radio Beer Release


Friday – Sunday (7/14 – 7/16) –

Forecastle Festival

WOOOOOOOOOOOO! In case you haven’t checked out our Local Focus with Jaye Jayle, do so now. Coming up this week: a conversation with Teddy Abrams, a few quick questions for Twin Limb, and our official preview of can’t miss sets for the weekend!


Friday (7/14) – 

Forecastle Late Night: Real Estate with PRJCTR

Not going to Forecastle? Get the Forecastle vibes from Real Estate after the fest ends. They are gifting us with two performances (one during the day and one late night). P.S. I’m obsessed with “Darling”

Forecastle Late Night: Yacht Rock Revue

Tony & The Tanlines are everyone’s fav cover band – all it takes is one time seeing them to know why. Getting to hang out with them late night on The Belle sounds magical.

Forecastle Late Nite: Bear Grillz & Shy Guys Says

Keep the Forecastle party rolling at Mercury!

Johnny Berry and The Outliers with Fellow Travelers

Want a more family friendly outdoor music choice? Those Foxhollow Farm sunsets are to die for.

The Power of One with Jennifer Lawrence

WHO WANTS TO GIVE ME $1000 TO SPEND THE EVENING WITH J LAW?! Okay, well at least you can go, and that money goes to the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, which is cool.

The MixT&pe™ 2017 Finals

Take your lunch break to bear witness to the finals! The bartenders have 10 minutes to create a cocktail based on their favorite song.

bird/trooper with Rare Treats

We just recently discovered how BALLER the upstairs venue at Monnik is. Should be a sweet place for this ‘sonic quest.’

Full Contact Karaoke

Is this like physical/aggressive karaoke? You would think, but REALLY you get a full band backing you as you sing karaoke on Iroquois Amphitheater’s stage!

Aaron Bibelhauser and Friends

Show Southern Indiana some loooooove.

Galactic Cowboy Orchestra

They define themselves as ‘art-rock’ and that’s perfect for the Tim Faulkner Gallery venue choice.

Saturday (7/15) –

Forecastle Late Night: The New Pornographers with Natalie Prass

BUCKET LIST SHOWWWWWWW! Enough said, right? Hopefully we can keep the pace for another late night show after a day at the Waterfront.

Forecastle Late Night: Preservation Hall Jazz Band

Yet another perfect band for The Belle.

Forecastle Late Night: Aesop Rock

Party all night at this 18+ show.

A Night with Derek Plaslaiko

You might need to go home and take a SUPER QUICK power nap post-Forecastle if you want to continue partying for this 3-hour DJ set.

Tsunami Samurai, Satellite Twin, DTBP – Birthday Fun Times

I love all Birthday Fun Times. Always and forever.
