"The New Vintage" makes its debut with a good ole’ fashioned rock-n-roll show [Music]

Louisville’s newest original music showcase made its debut Saturday night to a packed house at Zazoo’s. Hunter Embry, the event’s founder, who is also a musician and journalist himself, featured his own band The Bad Reeds, along with Scott Carney from Wax Fang, and Cougar Express.

As Embry promised, the venue offered an intimate setting with stellar sound production. 

While all of the artists who performed were talented musicians who know how to write songs, the night went to Cougar Express and their arsenal of Gibson guitars, a vibrant stage presence and just some good ole’ dirty and loud rock-n-roll that was almost Led Zeppelinish in it’s delivery at times.

The New Vintage will take place weekly on Saturday nights at Zazoo’s and is sure to deliver some of Louisville’s best original artists given Embry’s close connection to the music industry. Next week you can catch a youthful band that made me appreciate the eclecticism of bluegrass music, The Whiskey Bent Valley Boys.

Meanwhile, here are some clips from my Flip, from Saturday night's performances:

He's followed Louisville's rock music scene for almost 10 years, first as a concert promoter, then an artist manager, and now a music critic and reviewer. He's one crazy Jarhead who'll literally publish anything his mind conceives on impulse, so don't always expect him to follow the traditional laws of journalism. He has intent of reviving Hunter S. Thompson's “gonzo journalism” if only his editors will allow it...which they don't usually. Head over to LouisvilleScuttlebutt.com for more published rhetoric.
