Music This Weekend, Apr.11-13

So yeah, it’s Thunder weekend and all that. We could care less about this faux-Derby “tradition” (that started when we were in high school), and its militaristic displays, overcrowded streets and air pollution. We much prefer thunder of the HEAVY ROCK variety. So here’s what’s going on around town this weekend. dead child flyer

Tonight one hell of a great metal show is going down at Cahoot’s: Dead Child, Lords, Blade of the Ripper and Prideswallower will bring it for the masses. Dead Child’s new album Attack is now available from Quarterstick/Touch and Go Records, and though we’re not the biggest metal heads in town, we like it just fine. And no, they’re not “fake metal” or whatever else you might think. Read David Pajo’s hilarious take on the band and their critics in this week’s LEO, if you haven’t already. 10 pm, $5, be there!

Mountain Asleep flier

Also tonight there’s a big show at St. John’s Church on Market with Mountain Asleep, Fork.In.Socket, Them Roaring Twenties, Impure Jazz and the Wax Intellectual. We don’t know much about these bands, but hey, it’s something to check out in the future (we’ll be at work). 6:30 pm, $5.

Doesn’t seem to be much going on in the way of shows on Saturday night (unless we missed something, which is more than possible), but Sunday night in Lexington J. Roddy Walston & the Business, Louisville faves Wax Fang and Zavala are playing the Dame. 9 pm, $5.

MLIW flier

And finally, Tuesday the 15th brings the Modern Life Is War farewell tour to Uncle Pleasant’s in Louisville. They’ll be joined by local faves Coliseum, Young Widows and Paralyzer (from Cincinnati). 7 pm, $10, all ages.
