Music This Weekend, Mar.21-23

Louisvillians are lucky this week, as we’re spoiled with some of the best live music around the region. So get out there and go see some stuff, people!

Blues Control flier

First off, on Friday our good friends Blues Control from Queens, NY will be playing a pretty underground-ish show somewhere in the proximity of Sixth and Oak (on the northeast side) with Softcheque (featuring chanteuse Dane Waters) and Beat of Blood (9 pm, free!). We saw Blues Control on March 9th in Cincinnati, and it was a fun show, but I know Louisville can represent better than those bunch of buckeyes. Here’s a song from Blues Control’s recently released CD reissue Puff (on our friend Chris’s Fusetron label):

Blues Control, “Always On Time”


If we weren’t already going to see Blues Control, we’d head to Lexington to see Times New Viking, Psychedelic Horseshit, and Eyes and Arms of Smoke at the Frowny Bear (9 pm, $3-$5 suggested donation). Seriously, these crazy Columbus bands with their no-fi sound are great!

Saturday brings Ohio legends Pere Ubu and Louisville faves The Web to the Pourhaus (9 pm, tickets are $14 at ear X-tacy and will likely be gone soon!). We wrote about how fantastic it is that the Web is playing this show last week (and even included some rare mp3s), so you know we’re hyped. Can’t wait for this one!


Also Saturday night, Lincoln & the Lost Prayers, The Olympia Three and the Town Criers are playing Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge (10 pm, $5). Too bad this conflicts with the Pere Ubu/The Web show, otherwise we’d check it out for sure. Here’s a free track from the Olympia Three’s self-titled album (via Louisville Hardcore):

The Olympia Three, “I’m Still Here”

Of course, the big show getting lots of hype is that N.E.R.D. is playing City Block on Monday, but whatever. That’s going to be a madhouse.

The Teeth

And it’s not this weekend, but the Teeth are playing a free show at the Pink Door next Wednesday. Should be a good time.
