UPDATE, 9/27/2012: CROPPED OUT IS A DAY AWAY!

Some lineup changes to note: DAHM is unfortunately sick, so he will be missing this year’s CROPPED OUT. Get well, Dahm!

In his place are not one but two doozies: 90’s power-violence pioneers SUPPRESSION (from Roanoke, VA) and FAT HISTORY MONTH (from Boston, MA; on Sophomore Lounge).

Lots of food trucks and vendors and whatnot will be there too, so don’t forget the tomfoolery!

As we’ve said before, the weekend starts early around here, so we’d like to inform you of a few under-the-radar cultural events goin’ on in Louisville (complete with links to peruse!).

First off, our sister blog The Other Side of Life is co-promoting a show tonight in conjunction with Cropped Out and Black Velvet Fuckere:


(Flier by Ryan Davis.)

SAPAT (on Siltbreeze; from Louisville, KY)
BLUES CONTROL (on Drag City; from Coopersburg, PA)
PARLOUR (on Temporary Residence; from Louisville, KY)
WET (from Louisville, KY)

Thursday, July 26th 2012
at The Cathouse
747 S. Preston
All Ages! Doors at 8 PM, $5

There’s more information at the Facebook invite here: http://www.facebook.com/events/121230094685490, and you can read this great interview with BLUES CONTROL in this week’s LEO Weekly:http://leoweekly.com/music/spiritual-station-blues-control.

But if you’re in a more metal mood tonight, you can always check out TORCHE, BUSH LEAGUE, OLD VIKINGS, and NERVOUS ENERGY at Phoenix Hill Tavern for $10, and the show starts at 7 PM (can’t find a flier online, and we can’t bring ourselves to link to Phoenix Hill, but whatever it should still be a good show).

On Friday night, our friends at Astro Black Records (that’s the awesome new record store in the back of Quill’s, run by Jim Marlowe of Tropical Trash) are presenting a rad show at Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge: TROPICAL TRASH, CROSS (from Lexington), and MILK MUSIC (who we keep hearing great things about!) — here’s the Facebook invite for more info: http://www.facebook.com/events/441691975861428/. Lisa’s is at 1004 E. Oak Street (just off the corner of Swan), and $5 with 9 PM doors.

Also Friday night the new lineup of TWIN SISTER RADIO debuts at the Cathouse (747 S. Preston) with THE CARIBBEAN (from Washington, D.C.) and Connor Bell’s SHEDDING. 9 PM, $5. Gonna be tough to make both shows but we’re gonna try!

Saturday night our friends THE LITTLE BROTHERS are playing at Against the Grain, at 401 E. Main in Slugger Field. Not sure if there’s a cover, but they’re playing three sets, with no repeated songs, so that should be excellent. 8:30 PM start time.

On Sunday, whew… we’re gonna rest! Let us know, though, if there’s anything else goin’ on and we’ll list it!
