Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: November 12 – 18

It is another big week in town. If you are getting your mind right for Thanksgiving, this is totally a week to be thankful for.

Sunday (11/12) – 

Ron Gallo

We saw Ron Gallo at Shaky Knees this year and were impressed. Even though it’s a Sunday, we may have to go hard for this one….we know Ron Gallo will. Opening is Naked Giants, a band with whom Ron Gallo just released this EP!

Jonny Goood

Miss Gaga’s backing band is playing two intimate shows at Jimmy Can’t Dance before the big gig. The second (midnight) show was added late.

Monday (11/13) – 

Lady Gaga – Joanne World Tour

Lady Mother Fucking Gaga is coming to town. The queen herself is sure to wow as she bounces back from some health struggles. We love you girl and can’t wait to hang.

USL Cup Finals

Now if it wasn’t Gaga, this would be a no brainer. But if you didn’t know, Lou City made the finals…and they’re hosting!!!

Benyaro, Hey Hey Honey

NYC indie crossed with Jackson Hole, WY vibes.

Tuesday (11/14) – 

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Whiskey Bent Valley Boys 

It has been a bit since we’ve heard from Reverend Peyton and his Big Damn Band.

Wednesday (11/15) – 

The Security Project: The Timeless Music of Peter Gabriel, Featuring Jerry Marotta and Trey Gunn

Who doesn’t need a little Peter Gabriel cover band on a Wednesday?

John Cleese and The Holy Grail

The legendary John Cleese takes on The Palace. Bring any and all of your questions…the more absurd the better.

Carl Broemel

Carl Broemel, of MMJ fame, will likely fill Zanzabar to the brim. We very much enjoyed the show earlier this year and still like pulling up this 4th of July record.

Thursday (11/16) –

Waker, The Daybreaks

Waker was on our radar this summer at Bonnaroo. This description still holds true: “Self described as ‘Nashville’s most woke band,’ Waker has a lot to live up to. I’m interested to see if they can live up to it. With 7 cute Nashville boys, some sax and danceable tunes, I’m feeling pretty positive.”

Friday (11/17) – 

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets in Concert

There are multiple performances of this special orchestra event.


JD McPherson

JD McPherson is definitely a WFPK darling. This album is honestly really good, though.

Jim James

Jim James and Dave Eggers are back together for a one-night-only event benefiting the Young Authors Greenhouse, a nonprofit that inspires students from under-resourced communities to grow their imagination through writing. Last year’s event at PLAY did not include a performance from Jim James…so this is supa tight.

Wick-It The Instigator

This Nashville DJ/producer extraordinaire always puts on a fun ass show.

Fela Booty: Curio Key Club

Jimmy Can’t Dance is the spot these days. This Curio Key Club gig seems to be a regular event? Unclear, but we need to go check it out.

Late Night Jazz: Trumpeter Craig Tweddell

Are you a night owl? Looking for something entertaining after getting off work? Like bougie drinks and jazzy trumpets? Butchertown Grocery is that spot.

Saturday (11/18) – 

Kirk Franklin & Ledisi: The Rebel, The Soul and The Saint Tour

Research shows, gospel, and R&B are good for the soul. I made that up, but this is going to be fantastic.

Jessica Lea Mayfield

Aubrey was really impressed with her last show at Zanzabar. Girl makes some emotional music about real stuff, including her own story of domestic abuse.
