Music This Weekend, May 30-June 1

Hey there dear readers, we decided to bring back a feature we haven’t posted in a while, namely Music This Weekend, an incomplete guide to good stuff to hear (and see) in Louisville and nearby cities. And what a weekend we’ve got, so let’s get started!

John Hiatt Ear X-Tacy

Tonight at our other place of employment, the excellent ear X-tacy Records, Mr. John Hiatt will be playing a free in-store at 6 PM. Ear X-tacy’s located at 1534 Bardstown Road, in the Highlands. He’ll also be on WFPK in a few minutes (if we publish this post after noon, sue us), so check that out as well.


Metal fans will be glad to note that Nightwish and Sonic Syndicate are playing Headliners tonight at 8 PM. Headliners is located at 1386 Lexington Road, and tickets are available at ear X-tacy, by calling 502-584-8088, or at the door for $25 ($26 at ear X-tacy while still available).


Saturday night brings a whole bucket full o’ good shows all over town, and at a variety of price points. We’ll be seeing Mudhoney (above photo from, Detroit’s Easy Action and Louisville’s own Phantom Family Halo at Headliners, where the show starts at 8 PM and costs a whopping $15 ($16 at ear X-tacy).

Bodeco Flier

Later that night, there’s also a blisterin’, ear-bleedin’, whiskey-drinkin’, great time of a show at the Pour Haus, as Bodeco marks a triumphant return from a nine-month gigging absence. Local heavies the Glasspack and Lexington newcomers Nightshades open, $6, with doors at 10 PM.

The Teeth Flier May 31

The Teeth and Lee Van Cleef will play the Rudyard Kipling Saturday night to boot, with doors at 10 PM and the entry a low, low $3.

Kark Flier

Nearby to the Rud, at the excellent Sixth and Oak art space (still no name?), the Sapat-related psychedelic ensemble KARK plays with Lexington/Louisville noise duo Caboladies, Lexington synth duo Sick Hour (Robert and Trevor from Hair Police), and Cleveland’s Sam Goldberg. The show starts at 9 PM, and there’s a $5 suggested donation (gas is expensive for touring bands, don’tchaknow?).

Speaking of Lexington, Caboladies and Sam Goldberg will play the Void Skateshop there on Sunday with Street Narcotic (try googling that!) and Three Legged Race. Details are at

Whew! That’s a lot of stuff to get out there and see! So we hope to see you out and about this weekend!
