Forecastle Festival 2012 review: Neko Case
Neko Case was as much as stand-up comedian as she was a vocal powerhouse at Forecastle on Sunday, displaying her big voice and big personality in equal measure.
Neko Case has been a single woman making music for many years now. Before there was ever a Sharon Van Etten, Jessica Lea Mayfield, or even Zooey Deschanel, Case was letting her unearthly voice introduce her heavily symbolic, emotionally acute music to fans everywhere. At first she helmed the now...

Forecastle Festival 2012 review: Moon Taxi [Music]

Dr. Dog is one of those quirky, rambunctious bands you can’t pinpoint, stylistically or otherwise, that makes for the perfect outdoor festival experience. Not a jam band, but not a Beatles tribute act either, their newest album Be the Void has shaken off critics who claim they’re...

My Morning Jacket Comes Home
My Morning Jacket delivered everything promised of their highly anticipated Forecastle Festival performance and more, marking their return to their hometown as "one for the ages."
“Modern-day Louisville to me is a very happy place,” Jim James wrote in a recent article for Louisville Magazine, reminiscing about his childhood in the River City and ruminating on the future. “I feel very excited to be a part of this wonderful and wide family of new friends and...
