The Utah natives just finished up their third studio album and are headed to Louisville this Monday night. Their music was co-produced with lead singer of Neon Trees, and has musical influences from Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes. Their opener, Rivvrs, accompanies their sound and will be performing songs off their new LP.

Although one of the best-selling artists in US history is missing a key piece, this is still a show that you shouldn’t miss. Considering how things seem to be going lately in terms of artists from this era, you can’t take any show for granted. Sorry that is like the most depressing approach to concert-going, but it is also a reality.
The Beatles + Metallica. And freaking Clownvis Presley. This is gonna be a fascinating Monday night.
In keeping with the Halloween theme this week, prepare your creepiest stories to share, or just be ready to hear some.

This one is already almost sold out. Hum, an Illinois band, has been together off and on for 20 years. After breaking up a few years ago, the boys of Hum are back playing their reunion tour. Their alternative rock sound is still prevalent in their music, and their guaranteed to play songs off all four of their studio albums. Sweet Cobra is more hardcore alternative rock, but both bands are a must see.
“Bourbon-soaked, fuzz drenched blues rock sound”…I can actually visualize what that’s like and I think it’s exactly what you need to get over the week’s hump.
Local rock n’ roll at your go-to local bar.
How about a Wednesday night Halloween/dance party with your favorite DJs at one of your fav dive bars?

The Grand Ole Opry regular is returning to Lou once again. Cook’s new songs are extremely personal and reflect her turbulent times over the past couple of years. She says, “Emotionally, mentally, physically – it’s all been tested,” and continues, “and it set me up straight. It was hard, but it’s a good thing. Really hard lessons in resilience… All of it is in the record.”

Zbar and Vectortone are hosting this special Halloween party. The event will be honoring NYC’s legendary venues with performances from SLEEVELESS IN SEATTLE: members of Trophy Wives, Total Void, and Lords play two big sets of NIRVANA, IDIOT BOX: Louisville’s tribute to TELEVISION, featuring William Benton, Dan Marshall, Forrest Kuhn, and Salena Filichia, CHEREE: a full-band tribute to SUICIDE featuring Andrew Sellers, Michael Powell, Zack O’Renick, Brian Vega, and Brandon Koufeldt, and Jake Philley, Travis Searle, and Andy Gelburd as THE REPLACEMENTS.
Returning to Louisville is everyone’s favorite funk rock mummies. Though their identities are unknown, their unique sound is easily identifiable and recognizable for any music lover. Their albums consist of hit after hit and their live stage performance is a one of a kind show.
Hyppppppped. Landmark has been a heavily played album for us this year.
I’m not entirely sure what a ‘true pre-Halloween rager’ means, but I want to be there.

These banjo playing experts mix their unique sound into rock, jazz, and more. The married couple makes beautiful music together, and their connection is undeniable. Béla has won fifteen Grammy Awards and comments on his wife and her music by saying, “she is a gifted clawhammer banjo player, a seraphic vocalist, and an uninhibited songwriter.” It’s been a couple of years since we’ve had the pleasure of seeing the duo – the folks who trek out to KCD Theater are in for a treat.
Kentucky bluegrass jams at its best with this one.
This is about to be sick. Music by the Doors performed by members of Pleasure Boys, Twin Limb, BRENDA, & more. Yessssss.
Okay y’all. There’s seriously so many fun Halloween parties happening everywhere tonight (including, probably, at your friend’s house) so we had to choose our top picks for the night.
We’ve done a Halloween at Haymarket before and it was a shit show, but a blast of a shit show. I would expect no less from this one.
Grotesque vaudeville, Halloween-dressed drag kings and queens, fire artists, and live body painting? Certainly sounds like a Halloween story you’ll keep talking about. (Side note: the second installment on Tuesday is happening at The Cure Lounge with BLOOD WRESTLING?!)
Any Halloween party that’s close to home is a win for us, plus this poster is pretty sick.
It’s a Halloween party with good music, fun prizes, and all proceeds go toward a great cause. What more can you ask for?
