Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: December 10 – 16

Sunday (12/10) – 

Kamasi Washington, Moonchild

Washington’s music isn’t meant to be labeled or defined. It is, however, meant to ignite unity. His latest work, Harmony of Difference, has been widely praised and truly invokes listeners to think about how our differences can beautifully mesh together into something remarkable.

Angel Olsen, White Magic

Apparently Angel Olsen has ties to our town…she once provided the backing vocals for our own Bonnie “Prince” Billy. Nevertheless, she has made a name for herself on her own with last year’s My Woman and this year’s special compilation, Phases, getting plenty of attention.

Monday (12/11) – 

Matthew Milia, Peter Oren

Matthew Milia has been through town several times with his band Frontier Ruckus. Check his solo act out this time.

Tuesday (12/12) –

Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience

Jason Bonham has Led Zeppelin in his blood, so you know it will be an authentic night.

Wednesday (12/13) –

Thursday (12/14) –

We will never question (and you shouldn’t either) a Tom Petty tribute event.

Saturday (12/16) – 

SZA: The CTRL Tour with Smino and Ravyn Lenae

This just might be the show of the week. I hope you got your tickets in advance for this party because it’s been sold out for a while now! In fact, Ctrl may be the biggest album of the year, and for good reason.

Zach Longoria Project, Curio Key Club

May we all have as soulful/sexy Saturday night.

Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night

Whaaat how have we not heard about this event? Apparently all those who participate (for free, we might add) will be playing one of 4 songs on some sort of mobile device and wander around Downtown Louisville. Bring your device of choice and your walking shoes!
