    We’ve got another solid week of music on our hands. With this perfect fall weather, check out some of the outdoor events while we still can! For location, time and cost, click on the links for each event. Be sure to check back at after for our full reviews!

    Sunday (10/11) -

    Mother Falcon and Ben Sollee

    Kentucky’s favorite pop-cellist, Ben Sollee has joined forces with symphonic rock band, Mother Falcon for a special tour called The Fall Migration. The combination of these two will have The Brown Theater rolling for a Sunday night.

    Tuesday (10/13) -

    Defining Five featuring Jalin Roze, Jonathan Glen Wood, Twin Limb, Sam Sneed

    This series sounds pretty interesting. The premise is simple: pick five songs that are particularly meaningful to you. Each event will feature local community members, with this week’s including some hallmark names in our city's music scene. 

    Wednesday (10/14) -

    Lera Lynn with Brian Whelan

    Lera Lynn has blown onto the national scene after her songs were featured on Showtime’s second season of True Detective. The songs stole the show, setting the perfect tone each time. We’re excited to see what she’s like live.  

    Thursday (10/15) -

    Communion Louisville: Birdcloud, The Hart Strings, Jameron and Blind Tiger

    It is time for another Communion Residency stop at Zanzabar. Three local bands join Nashville ladies, Birdcloud. We’ve seen Birdcloud before and you’ll most certainly be entertained by their individual brand of country music. The Hart Strings produce fun, folky music that we’ve also come to love.

    Friday (10/16) -

    Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, Penny & Sparrow

    Friday night is packed with several artists we’re interested in catching. Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors are absolutely on the list. If you don't recognize Holcomb's name, your ears will definitely perk up during many of his songs - he's had several songs appear on some of TV's biggest shows. With a new album out this year, I think we'll get to hear a lot of the new stuff.

    Waxahatchee, Weyes Blood, Try The Pie

    Waxahatchee is the moniker of singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield. This rock project has been gaining a bunch of attention over the summer at festivals around the country, including a stop at ACL the last two weekends. The latest record, Ivy Tripp, has been well received. The New Vintage will be its usual loud and rowdy self on Friday night.

    The Suffers, Bhi Bhiman

    We’ve been kind of obsessed with The Suffers since their first time in town, and good news for this Houston band, the rest of the country feels the same way. They’ve had a huge summer, blowing minds at festivals across the country. Their last Louisville show was low key in numbers, so I hope that locals show up - I PROMISE you will be impressed.

    Matt & Kim- Homecoming Block Party

    This energetic duo is in town for the University of Louisville’s homecoming festivities. With the being a FREE event, it should definitely be on your radar.

    Saturday (10/17) -

    What the Germantown Festival

    Our neighborhood is gonna be partying this weekend. Five of the community’s staples (Eiderdown, The Post, Four Pegs, Nachbar and Kaiju) will host several bands staggered throughout the day. The point of this bar hop is to introduce non-Germantown-ers to the great bar and restaurant options all within a mile of each other!

    An Evening with The Beach Boys

    I mean, The Palace and The Beach Boys? This is a pretty special opportunity that will certainly be one to remember.

    Quiet Hollers’ Masquerade & Album Pre-release Party with Special Guests

    This one has been building up for a while now, and I think Louisville will show out for some of favorite rockers on their big night. Quiet Hollers have a new album that they will be celebrating. Also, a masquerade sounds like a lot of fun.

    Thursday through Saturday (10/15-10/17) -


    Our dude Jecorey Arthur, aka 1200, has helped curate another three day run at ReSurfaced starting this Thursday, and running through Saturday. Friday and Saturday each have their own fun events - a fashion show and fried chicken throwdown?! We're interested in all of the above, especially in the event's new location on 10th street.
