    Even though Forecastle closed its gates one week ago, Friday night had the festival vibes all over again. So many shows at so many venues it was impossible to catch it all. The crowds had room to grow at every show, but hey, I guess some folks are still recouping from the Forecastle extravaganza.

    The Quiet Hollers started one of the busiest nights for Louisville music playing a free show at Against the Grain before heading out to tour the East Coast. Bummer rock with a catchy attitude, the fellas in Quiet Hollers will be missed, but we can all still enjoy all the tunes and anticipate their new album while they're away. 

    Mercury Ballroom featured Death From Above 1979 with The Bots. A great venue, but had room to grow audience wise. The Bots opened the show and made it clear they’re a band worth keeping an eye on. Their youth lends a kind of naïve sensibility that creates an authentic, earnest show and one that will definitely melt your face. They’re a gut busting duo taking advantage of pedals, loops, and even some strange pop culture media fillers. Check out our interview with the brothers here!

    Across town Headliners held the first night of Holy Carp Productions, Psych Fest. It was a little disappointing not to see more people in attendance. Friday had an excellent lineup of local bands including, Dream Eye Color Wheel, Graffiti, New Bravado, and The Hot Wires. Read more about Graffiti and New Bravado in our Tune to Lou features.
