Shows Of Note
Monday, October 20, 2014

"Los Angeles trio Foster the People – led by commercial-jingle writer Mark Foster, 27 – have been together for less than two years, but they've already scored a Top 10 album. Thanks to the hypercatchy hit "Pumped Up Kicks" - which has sold 300,000 copies and scored more than three million YouTube views – their first LP, Torches, debuted at Number Eight on the album charts last month." - Patrick Doyle, Rolling Stone.
Being an LA indie pop band with a writer who has gotten by scribbling commericial jingles is a pretty good path to a certain sort of success, if a hyper-popular tune is the first one out of the box. That would be Foster The People, whose first single "Pumped Up Kicks" hit No. 1 and garnered all manner of attention from the pop music press, plus awards  for Song of The Year (Billboard} and Rock Song Of The Year (WEAQ, SharkOne). That was in 2011 and now, with a second album, Supermodel, is leading the band on a tour that while stop at the Palace Theatre on October 20. Not a bad start for a baby band. Tickets to the show are $29.50 - $39.50 plus fees.

"Some of Beta Lowdown, the forthcoming debut from Minneapolis band Enemy Planes, could pass for synth-heavy neo–soul. Other songs are coated in so many layers of electronic wash that they sound eerie, like the work of a band trapped in a dark studio, surrounded by too many knobs. Overall, the album projects a startlingly dystopian feel — which makes for an exciting ride, lined with sharp turns and racing energy." - Natalie Gallagher, Pitch Music
The Minnesota sextet, "anything but pop" band Enemy Planes heads into Zanzabar on October. The band was  began as a couple of members of a pop;-centric band called Pictures Of Then recorded a couple of songs that didn't fit that prior sound. Thus, Enemy Planes. They're touring in support of Beta Lowdown; you'll have check the video for some sense of the band's sound. If you like to catch they up-and-comers, they might be worth it. Only your taste will tell. Tickets are $8 adv/$10 DoS.

The two-piece rock band called JEFF The Brotherhood returns to Zanzabar for the second stop of the year on October 21. They've made Louisville a regular stop since played the Cropped Out Fest in 2010; they also made it onto the Forecastle Fest in 2012. These two guys are touring monsters as well as making lots of records: they've released seven studio albums, one live album and a number of singles since beginning back in 2001. While they've gotten a fair bit of media attention, including having their last album streamed on NPR, they haven't yet had that big hit record, They nonethess have a following sufficient to finance all those records. Tickets to the Zbar are $12 adv/$15 DoS. Diarrhea Planet opens.
Watch "Leave Me Out":

It's GWAR!!!! Yup, it's true, the monsters of metal are returning to Louisville to spew nasty, slimey, stuff all over you people! Ah, it's good, er, clean fun! The legendary band will be in Louisville on Tuesday, October 21 at Expo 5 w/ Decapitated and American Sharks! This is gonna be a barnburner of a show. It's been awhile since I've seen GWAR, I think it was at The Oasis about five years back. Maybe it's time for me to see these cats again. I remember the first time I saw GWAR, I hid in the back to not get shit sprayed on me, but a giant Jesus ended up spewing goo out of a giant rubber schlong, all the way across Headliners to the back of the club, to hit me directly in the face. It was a helluva shot. The show is $20 and starts at 7 p.m. I think there will be local bands on the bill as well, so get there early.
