Sunday was about as good as it could have been: the end of Forecastle plus the Game of Thrones premiere! This week gives us a moment of recovery and then picks up again for another quintessential Louisville summer weekend.
Monday (7/17) –
Don’t take a night off. This show warrants your attendance.
Tuesday (7/18) –
Their show at Headliners a few years back was actually really fun. It’ll be a throwback for a lot of us fans.
Wednesday (7/19) –
Let’s get a little picnic together, fly some kites, and enjoy some classical tunes. This sounds so refreshing.
I’ve never wanted to explore extreme Polish metal so much before this moment.
Thursday (7/20) –
Rye Back Porch Sessions: Twenty First Century Fox and River City Rumble DJs
RBP is a summer staple. This month’s addition is in support of the Louisville Ballet.
Louisville Burger Week Passport Release Kick Off Party
So apparently Burger Week is next week. This party kicks off the week long event – you can get a passport thing that evening. Tristen Brooke will be providing some music.
There has been a ton of excitement around the announcement of the location for the new soccer stadium. This party will bring together all parties to celebrate the big moves of the team!
Friday and Saturday (7/21-7/22) –
Four Roses Bourbon Blues, Brews, and BBQ Festival
All of these things are delightful. Combining them all into one space/weekend seems a bit sinful.
Friday (7/21) –
West Sixth Brewing and DJ JP Source
Beer + JP Source on a fine summer Friday night.
After work outdoor concerts in New Albany. Bring your fam and enjoy regional music across the river.
Fourth Street Live hosts this English band, which is a nice change of pace from their usual modern country bookings.
Reunion shows are always a fun gig.
Local experimental electronic swag at Zbar.
Beware The Images has a new EP due out in a few weeks. Check out their new stuff at Kaiju.
Saturday (7/22) –
Wild Rivers, Small Time Napoleon
The Canadian band has earned quite the accolades back across the border, being described as one of the top up-and-coming folk acts. Honestly, they’re just delightful. Take a quick listen for yourself, and then get your little behind over to Z for a great show.
This is so strange. It sounds like a train wreck (have you watched any of his morning television performances???) and I want to be there to witness whatever may happen at Trixie’s.
A pig roast, surf music, leis and Hawaiian shirts galore.
Vag party lehgoo. So many burlesque-y events this weekend.
Pinky Doodle Poodle, Dry Summers, Wax Astro
The lead vocalist is a successful Japanese anime singer (known from his vocals on popular video games). Whhhaaaaaa!
I don’t even know. Part of me is so intrigued, the other part of me is kind of freaked out. Nevertheless, this sounds like a “you gotta be there” event.
