Zach's weekend picks for Louisville: Kentucky Music Weekend, The Wailers and 'Food, Inc.'

Print
"Food, Inc." Village 8 4014 Dutchmans Lane July 24-30, daily show times of 1:15, 3:15, 5:20, 7:25 and 10:05 p.m. When a friend freaks at a restaurant because there's a hair in her meal, I crack up: that strand is probably the least offensive foreign materials in her food. "Food, Inc.," which was released last year and finally comes to Louisville this weekend when it plays at the Village 8, "lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA." The Wailers perform the legendary album Exodus Brown-Forman Amphitheater River Road July 24, 6-10:59 p.m. The group renowned for its work with Bob Marley will be playing what Time magazine called the best album of the 20th century at Louisville's Waterfront Park. Zach Deputy, who the hippie girls loved in the parking lot at Bonnaroo, opens. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at Ticketweb. Kentucky Music Weekend Iroquois Amphitheater 1080 Amphitheater Road July 24, 7-11 p.m. and July 25, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Celebrate Kentucky's rich musical heritage through the sounds of banjos, fiddles, guitars, dulcimers and vocal harmony at Kentucky's "premier folk festival" (a title the state legislature bestowed upon Kentucky Music Weekend in 2000; clearly it had spare time in its session having already solved all of the commonwealth's problems). Read Louisville.com's article about the Kentucky Music Weekend for more information about the event. The suggested donation is $10, which is what pays the artists, so follow the suggestion. Jerry Tolson Quartet Jazzyblu 815 W. Market St. July 24, 8 p.m. Louisville's new jazz club, at the site of Louisville's old jazz club, features the Jerry Tolson Quartet playing standards, contemporary originals and Latin sounds on Friday nights. For more information on the new Jazzyblu, read Louisville.com's profile on the new club. Cover is $5. Art Sparks Family Studio Photography Speed Museum 2035 S. 3rd St. July 25, 12-3 p.m. Bring found objects to photograph using sunk light and solar prints with photographer Flora Schildknecht in conjunction with City/Country: Photographic Highlights from the Henry V. Heuser, Jr. Collection at the Speed Museum. It's free with your $5 admission to Art Sparks (which makes it kind of not free). For more information: Interested in drinking good beers on Saturday afternoon? The Louisville Ale Club meets at 5 p.m. at Browning's.
