Thursday, March 8th, Reverend Horton Heat will hold service at Headliner’s Music Hall with Larry & His Flask and The Goddamn Gallows on the "Stewed, Screwed, & Tattooed" tour. Their appeal lies somewhere between the mosh pit and a good, ol'-fashioned barn-raising, and promise a night of country-heavy tunes about bad habits, well-meaning but clueless husbands, and ever-expanding beer-guts.
Legends of 80/90's indie rock, The Lemonheads, will hit the rewind button on Monday March 5 at Headliner’s Music Hall, 8pm. The band will be playing " It's a shame about Ray " in it’s entirely with special guests The Shining Twins and Dear Meet. A must for all of their fans and as well a unique opportunity to (re)discover them!

During the early 1990’s indy-rock scene you would have been hard pressed to miss Drivin’ N Cryin’. A Southeast band from Atlanta who have never been able to fit into a perfect category or music genre description, but have always had a place in my record collection and heart. Wednesday, February 15th lead vocalist Kevin Kinney and the guys rocked Headliners Music Hall with special guest The Tunesmiths.
Presented by Brown-Forman, you may dine out at a participating restaurant and 25% or more of your bill will be donated to House of Ruth for the support of Glade House. I particularly love the array of participating venues and am going to try and fit at least one lunch and two dinners in today because frankly I sleep better knowing I did a good thing locally on a full belly.

Gordon Food Service (GFS) saves more than $50,000 worth of food from spoilage at Sullivan University during the power outage following the August 13th storm which threatened culinary school's food supplies. GFS should now stand for "Good For Sullivan".
This year, with the lack of previous local major music festivals such as Hullabaloo and Forecastle - Bonnaroo celebrates it's 10th anniversary and there's no shortage of musicians, artists, and local Louisvilleians who plan to attend just across our southern border. If you don't go, you'll never know. And if you've been, you'll go again. I am.
There's Derby parties, then there are Derby parties! You may lose a wager at the track this year on Kentucky Oaks Day, but are guaranteed a great time this year at The Mint Jubilee. It's not cheap, but a wager is easier to stomach when you know why you lost and this way you walk away well-fed. After all, who can trust a horse, of course, of course. And horses are notoriously bad chefs.
"I dunno, wherever you like is fine honey,"....An age old answer from girls which is like 'pleading the fifth' when trying to plan a date. You know you're guilty for knowing what you want, but will never admit the truth. From a guy's perspective the decision making is harder than asking the girl out for the first time. This past week for my birthday I turned the tables as my wife struggled on where to go out for dinner. "I just want a great steak and potatoes - ladies choice,". Luckily I have a great gal with a wonderful knowledge of Louisville and Pat's Steak House it was.
