Live Music Lou’s Can’t Miss: May 7 – 13

WHEW. Take a break for just a second and recover from the wet and wild weekend. Then get ready to do it again.

Tuesday (5/8) –

Andrew W.K., Push Start

Our sources tell us this is a very different type of show. If anything, I may go to see that envious hair.

The Messthetics, Cat Casual and The Final Word, Ave Flume

If your Tuesday needs include an “apocalyptic dance party” than this Zbar show is your spot.

Visual Art / Vinyl Night


Wednesday (5/9) –

Tank & The Bangas, Sweet Crude

Tank & The Bangas are back! Their Zbar show was all we talked about for a while – this time we’re bringing a handful of friends with us to Headliners who are interested after all the hype. In the meantime, check out their new single they released for 420.

Unwed Sailor, Early Day Miners

This Wednesday Zbar show will let your brain check out from whatever your week is throwing at you.

Waterfall Wash, Zach Stefanski, Part Bird

Nashville and Louisville music on point.

Erim Stolhanske

Super Troopers is a serious guilty pleasure for me so I’d totally be down seeing ‘Rabbit.’

Thursday (5/10) –

Parkway Drive

Australian metal seems like a slight oxymoron but, meh, you never know.

Ben Sollee, Tyler Lance Walker Gill, Bungalow Betty

Local folkies, unite!

Sierra, Irata, Shi

As described on Do502: “Get ready to be baptized by brutal frequencies Thursday May 10th at the Cure Lounge with Canada’s Sierra, Greensboro’s Irata, and Louisville’s Shi.”

Friday (5/11) –

ODESZA, Kimbra, Kasbo

Their Forecastle set last summer had all of the young folks dancing the night away. I would expect a similar situation at Iroquois this time around.

Anderson East, Jade Bird

He gets all the folks moving when he comes to town. We noticed a certain demographic absolutely loves him – ahem, the ladies, ahem – they’ll show up all googly-eyed and loving it.

Smooth Hound Smith

Sixteen Candles

Get your throwback fix with Sixteen Candles.

Saturday (5/12) –

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats have only really been a thing for 5 years, but those 5 years have included a fast paced climb. We love Rateliff’s raspy, soulful voice. We will continue to reiterate, the Iroquois summer lineup is 🔥🔥🔥. This show is definitely one of them.
