Saturday, April 30, 2016

Bela Fleck and Teddy Abrams get together to play a little, with the Louisville Orchestra as their backup band.

It's a Classics presentation and tt all goes down in Whitney Hall on April 30. Tickets are $28 up. Here's Fleck playing a selection from his "Imposter" piece:

Ah, the sweet Lucinda Williams. How long did you listen to Car Wheels On A Gravel Road? Do you realize that that was eighteen years ago? That's a lifetime in the ever-fickle music bidness. She's going to be at Headliners on May 2, promoting her latest Ghosts of Highway 20. Tickets are only $15 adv/$18 Dos. Cheap. Watch her NPR TIny Desk Concert from last year to get an idea of where she's at, musically speaking:

Kroger Fest-A-Ville - Waterfront Jam for May 4 will feature the Texas psychedelic rock band The Bright Light Social Hour with Vessel opening. BLSH is touring in support of their Space Is Still The Place studio album, plus the Live at Lincoln Hall album, recorded quickly, after the band learned of the November 2015 Paris attacks. Their sound is as much bluesy and soulful as psychedelic, but, hey, who's keeping track? They're on their way up, as catch them here earl-ish. A Pegasus Pin gets you in. Watch "Back and Forth"

Australian metalcore band Parkway Drive, whose style "employs unclean vocals, guitar riffs and breakdowns." They didn't use clean vocals on any of their studio albums until their most recent studio album Ire, which means you might actually be be able to understand them when they come to the Mercury Ballroom on May 5. They're here to give the metalheads something to do during Derby week. Tickets are $22. Check out the video for "Crushed":

Here's your FREE Derby show of the week: The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience presents Bourbon & Blaze,  featuring Quiet Hollers, Cereal Glyphs, Legs Akimbo, White Reaper and Graffiti, in the Galaxie Lounge at The Green Building. Pretty good lineup of Louisvile bands. Starts at 6 p.m. As I said, it's free but requires a RSVP. Go here to RSVP. Watch Quiet Hollers sign "Liar Song":

Citizen Cope will ease you into Derby Day with an "intimate solo acoustic performance" at Headliners on Friday, May 6. Cope needs no intro in Louisville, where he has sold out venues pretty regularly. In any case, you don't really need to blow it all out before Derby Day, when you will. Tickets are $35 adv/$40 Dos. Watch an acoustic performance of "Sideways""

For the serous acoustic music fan, the May 6 show out at Iroquois Amphitheatre is the place to be, with both Trampled by Turtles and The Devil Makes Three playing. Phew. The last time The Devil Makes Three played Louisville, it was at the now-closed Uncle Slayton's. Trampled By Turtles was at the Brown in 2014. Together, they're an irresistible draw. Elephant Revival will open. Tickets are $25-$30. Take a gander at The Devil Makes Three's "Stranger" video:
