Summer is officially dead. This week of live music is not.
Sunday (8/13) –
Every time I drive/ride my bike/walk by Kaiju on a Sunday night, the place is packed. Unfortunately, my Sunday nights will likely be pretty limited right now but ya’ll should go for sure.
The Cure hosts these chill bands, which is what my Sunday night needs after a weekend of “last weekend of summer” partying.
Monday (8/14) –
Get ready to relive those angsty younger years. It is unbelievable how many All-American Rejects I can sing word for word.
Tuesday (8/15) –
Do I need some punk to pep me up for the first day of school? Maybe so.
This is a traveling speakeasy series. Woah so cool. Butchertown Grocery is the perfect space for jazz.
Wednesday (8/16) –
Dave Rawlings is a prolific musician. His latest work with Gillian Welch literally just came out (see below.)
Thursday (8/17) –
Always moody AF, Belle and Sebastian’s new single “We Were Beautiful” is catchy and familiar. I’m excited to see this band that has been on my iTunes for years and equally pumped ot finally see Julien Baker. We’ll be doing our best to get there on time to see this oober talented song-writer.
As we swing into sweater weather, it is important for all of us to take full advantage of the outdoor music options. Rye Back Porch is a staple for us and has even more meaning considering this evening supports Girls Rock Louisville!
So much 90’s all in the same space. I mean since all of the 90’s fashion is coming back around, it should be really easy to get dressed up for this one?
Friday – Saturday (8/18-19) –
Like check out this effing lineup? With so many local and regionals goodies, it is impossible not to hit up the fest both days. The festival has a new home and I’m excited to explore it.
Friday (8/18) –
Carly Johnson’s voice is stunning without question. She has positioned herself as a linchpin in the local music scene. Let’s get together and celebrate her new music, to be released in early 2018!
Kaiju plays host to another album release gig. Three great local bands are on the bill!
Alabama is legendary on so many fronts. The fair is kicking off pretty aggressively with this one.
YOU ALL. YOU CAN SEE GINUWINE FOR FREE. LIKE WHAT?!
91.9 has brought this Nashville artist to town… he is so WFPK and so Nashville.
It is Brooks turn to play the New Albany summer series. He is such a fun, happy guy and always a wonderful time to watch.

For the first time, Moon Taxi will be headlining an Iroquois Amphitheater show. We are not the only Louisvillians that love the Nashville guys, so we expect droves of humans to show up. Moon Taxi
1200 is like Aubrey: heading back to school. However, before the big changes of the fall, Jecorey is hosting this Old Louisville, youth centered event. This event focusing on unity through art is perfectly timed.
Science, art and the outdoors all combine at Bernheim.
Party with some punk rock monsters! Werestein Meets Frankenwolf will be playing their first show.
