Cut Copy, featuring Classixx and Nile Delta at Headliner's
From Cut Copy: “Due to an unforeseen wrinkle, we’re going to make it to our first show in Louisville a little later than we originally planned. We’ll see you at Headliners on June 30. Hope you can still join us.” Previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new date. For refunds (good through June 5), please return to the point of purchase. After the release of their dark, ’80s-inspired synth pop classic In Ghost Colours in 2008, Cut Copy have been warming up and expanding their sound to the point where they're almost a completely different band. 2011′s album Zonoscope was almost excessively bright and extroverted, with songs like “Where I’m Going” sounding like Jock Jams in comparison to the introspectively moody sound the band had previously established. Their 2013 album, Free Your Mind, is even bigger sounding and warmer than a hug from the sun.

The Felice Brothers and Robert Ellis at Zanzabar
The Felice Brothers' new and fourth LP "Celebration, Florida" revels in an inventive, outlaw spirit; it's the sound of a band that knows its roots and knows where it's growing. They're a group who just might expand the definition of Americana music along the way. Robert Ellis is the kind of songwriter who only comes along once in a great while, and his growth as a man and musician is clear on his new album "The Lights From The Chemical Plant." And while some may call it a musical departure from his past, The Houston Chronicle best explains: "Ellis doesn't place limitations on his music. Any perceived departure is just part of an ongoing creative journey." The event is 21 and over.
