Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: November 5 – 11

Sunday (11/5) – 

Buckingham McVie

So much activity in Louisville from members of Fleetwood Mac in the last couple of years! This will be a special night at The Palace.

Simply Three

I’m almost positive they were here a few years ago. It’s incredibly impressive what these guys can do with all those strings.

A. Savage (Parquet Courts) & Jack Cooper (Ultimate Painting)

We caught a bit of Parquet Courts at Shaky Knees one of the last few years. It’s pretty sick that we get this low-key show.

2nd Annual Guy Clark Tribute

He’s a legend and will be celebrated as such by some of Louisville’s finest.

MERFest 2017

A benefit for MERF (Musician’s Emergency Resource Foundation). Solid option for the night.

Monday (11/6) – 

The Accidentals

Billboard’s 2015 breakout band is making a stop in Louisville! This three person, female dominated band incorporates sounds from their impressive orchestra performance skills, as well as a unique take on modern indie music. Their combination of these two opposing genres gives them a unique sound that make them unmissable.

Tuesday (11/7) – 

Highly Suspect, special guest DJ Redbees, Bones

I hope you got your tickets early if you were interested in this high-energy rock show because it’s been sold out for a while. Headliners is going to be loud and unapologetic, for sure, as they perform songs off their two studio albums, and three-song EP. With influences from the producer of the Black Keys and Elvis Costello, this band knows how to rock out and give a great show.

The Nth Power, Ghost-Note, Mononeon

Soulful, impromptu, and incorporating that New Orleans sound, The Nth Power is here to give us all things soul and praise to the power of music. Their music aims to inspire people to dance, groove, and tune into the good energy of music. Get your groove on with these dudes.

Wednesday (11/8) – 


Their 2017 Refill Tour is debuting the new sounds from the alternative band. Their sound is funky, danceable, and easy to enjoy even without knowing the words.

Simply Saucer w/Tycoon$ of Teen and The Delighters

Simply Saucer has a definite 70s feel to them, which will pair nicely with Lou rockers Tycoon$ of Teen.

Emma Dilemma, Sheri Streeter, Droneroom

Singer songwriters at their finest!

A night with Janis Joplin

Pay tribute.

Thursday (11/9) – 

2017 Louisville Music Awards

They’re back! Help celebrate all things Louisville music by attending this annual awards ceremony and be the first to hear the winner announcements.

Mannequin Pussy

I think this is going to be a super fun punk rock show. Also, this video is giving off The OA vibes and I’m loving it.

The Spins!

This ATG installment’s sole focus is St. Vincent’s new album, Masseducation. If you’re as stoked about the upcoming show as we are, I know where we’ll find you Thursday night.

Majeure, Exacta Cube, Trotter/Riles

Cropped Out presents this Kaiju triple header.

Friday (11/10) – 

Waxahatchee, Ought

WFPK has been playing the SHIT outta Waxahatchee, and we’re totally feeling it.

Luna, Eleanor Friedberger, Cat Casual & The Ordinary Bones

Luna is sure to take you back to the time of classic indie rock sounds, with a hint of pop. Through many break ups and band re-imaging, they are here to make their big debut back on stage. Don’t miss these classic 90s rockers this weekend.

H a u n t e r, Gools, The Ego Trippers

The array of sounds tonight will be sure to please all concert-goers.

Decades Collide – 80s vs 90s feat. DJ Biz Markie

I hope you don’t have much to do on Saturday morning because I feel like this might wear you out.

Saturday (11/11) – 

The Jesus and Mary Chain, Mark Croser and The Rels

This duo is here to channel your inner angry-with-the-world attitude. Dressed in all black and playing songs that resemble the Sex Pistols sound, these brothers are sure to deliver a rocking show this Saturday night.

TAG, a Benefit Party

Tunes! Art! Games! Tim Faulkner Gallery has it all tonight. Plus you get to hear from The Pass and then from your fellow audience members who choose to spin Howell Dawdy’s wheel.


Tyler Childers

This Kentucky native has a propensity for selling out local venues. Zbar will be filled to the brim with fans of his very “Kentucky” sounding music. His 2017 album, Purgatory has catapulted him onto the national stage. If you have a ticket to this one, you are a lucky dog.

Curio Key Club

The Butchertown Social is a p. fun spot if you haven’t been yet, and the Curio Key Club fellas are always on point, so this is a solid choice.

The Kids Born Wrong, Soundsmyth, The Archaeas

Get your noise on and then be sure to check out the always-delicious food trucks hanging outside of Kaiju.


The lovely ladies are back! They’re our friends!

Louisville’s 90s Block Party

You’d like to relive the 90s? Join the rest of the crowd at Yum! for a night that is sure to include audience participation.

Sixteen Candles

If 80s covers are more your game, Mercury Ballroom has you covered for the night.
