    Communion presents Hey Rosetta!, Kevin Garrett and Stereo Empire

    Communion residency shows are played on a monthly basis in only a short list of cities in the US- we all should feel pretty lucky that Louisville is on this list.  These bills always include budding acts that are looking to get that jump start.  Hey Rosetta!, Kevin Garrett and Louisville’s Stereo Empire are all bands that have experimental sounds and will appreciate their Zanzabar crowd. 

    Thursday (4/16)-

    Chance the Rapper with Jalin Roze

    One of Louisville’s favorites and the man who has been instrumental in growing the city's rap scene, Jalin Roze will be getting this night started.  Headliner, Chance the Rapper, is a young man from Chicago that has gained huge success over his short career becoming a main stay at festivals around the country.  His open lyrics and complex flows are something else. 

    Friday (4/17)-

    Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band

    The last time Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band drove down 65 from Brown County was for WFPK’s Waterfront Wednesday.  This lively and roots-y trio center their sound around Reverend Peyton’s talent on the guitar and the unconventional washboard and plastic bucket instruments.

    Misty Mountain String Band and New Old Cavalry,The Bieblhauser Bros, Brooks Ritter

    Louisville’s harmonious Misty Mountain String Band will circle a single mic and give a crowd traditional bluegrass tunes for their release show Friday night.  Bloomington, Indiana’s New Old Cavalry and fellow Derby City acts The Bieblhauser Bros and Brooks Ritter will join MMSB at Tim Faulkner Gallery. 

    Saturday (4/18)-

    Copper and Kings Thunder Over Louisville Party featuring A Lion Named Roar in support of Teach Kentucky

    If you want to kick up your Thunder viewing a notch, this Copper and Kings roof top party will be just that.  The evening will include Copper and Kings drinks and music by A Lion Named Roar.  AND this event helps to support young teachers moving to Louisville to begin their careers through the nonprofit Teach Kentucky. Win, win, and win.  

    Tree Tops and Lazy Sunday

    After a day out enjoying the Thunder Over Louisville festivities, head back to your favorite unlit and hazy bar for some eclectic live music.  Lazy Sunday, an up and coming band from Louisville with a very cool sound is opening up for Knoxville’s Tree Tops- both bands wielding brass instruments of some fashion.
