Shows Of Note

"Allen is fresh off headlining the Grand Ballroom in New York’s Webster Hall, where he crowd surfed and got his hometown fans whipped into a frenzy with his breezy style, otherwise known as "frat-rap" for its resonance with college-aged students." - Jspace.com
Yer hip-hop show for Halloween night could be down at the Mercury Ballroom, when Jewish Hoodie Allen stops in, bringing his Hoodie Mob fans along with him on his People Keep Talking tour. Hoodie only has one full-length studio album, People Keep Talking, released earlier this month, as well as three EPs, available digitally, but he has toured a lot over the last couple of years. As this is the first time he has been in the Derby City, how much his "frat-rap" will draw is open to question. Tickets aren't cheap at $29.50 Ticket + $5.75 Fees / $35.25.
Hoodie says he should "Act My Age":

Wes Scantin, founder and sole original member of Puddle Of Mudd, is getting a little long in the tooth to be upholding his band's reputation for hard partying, but the Halloween gig at Phoenix Hill Tavern may offer too much temptation for the forty-two-year-old singer to resist. Five studio albums into a twenty-three-year career seems to be rather short, but the band makes the most of the music they have. Their first studio album, Come Clean, sold five million copies and peaked at #9 on Billboard's Top 200 chart but that was the height of their sales. Given their regular stops in town, expect a crowd of fans. Their latest is 2009's Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate. Tickets are $20.

Here's "Blurry" from Puddle of Mudd:

<div style="padding-right:5px;"> The Houston-born Christian rapper <b>Lecrae</b> brings <b>Andy Mineo</b> and <b>DJ Promote</b> into the Louisville Palace with him on November 1, offering up a solid evening of Christian and Gospel music, with a strong emphasis on  redemption, given that Lecrae had the kind of background that an escape from is certainly redemption. He has earned a large stack of awards of all sorts, including a couple of Grammy Awards, and is out promoting his latest album, Anomoly. Tickets to the show were $25 to $100, but you'll have to get them somewhere else, as the show is sold out.<div style=\"clear:left;">Here's the new video for "All I Need Is You": </div><iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/6iRTBh1gCjk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The "duo" of Granger Smith and Earl Dibbles Jr. will saddle up and ride on in to Headliners Music Hall on November 1, there to play a couple of related -but differently flavored- kinds of music. Granger and his alter ego Dibbles are a couple of good ole boys from Big D, though Granger might be from North Dallas, whereas Earl is definitely from out around Mesquite. There are seven studio albums, with 2013's Dirt Road Driveway the most successful of the bunch. Smith made the Nashville effort for a few years but now is back in Texas, with a wife and family. It's a fun show, particularly with the change of persona. Tickets are $13 adv/%15 Dos.

Here's his take on bro country, "Silverado Bench Seat":

WFPK's favorite "local" performer, Lexingtonian Ben Sollee brings his cello to the Bomhard Theatre on November 1. Essentially a cello-playing singer-songwriter, Sollee has made a considerable career out of hauling his cello on a bicycle and championing various good causes, as well as making music folks like. His latest record is The Hollow Sessions. You can hear him as well on November 2 at Comstock Hall at the School of Music at 3p. Either show is $25.

Here's Sollee playing "Letting Go":

If you are a dance fan, then you likely already have ticket to see the Dance Theatre of Harlem at Whitney Hall on November 1, but it might not be too late to grab a couple, if you have a last-minute urge. DTH has a long history and reputation of presenting first-class, bleeding-edge ballet choreography. The company, which was founded in 1969, fell on some hard times in 2004 but has regrouped and is back to form. Tickets are $22 and up.

Dailey & Vincent is a bluegrass band some of whose members bring a significant CV to the group: Dailey sang and played guitar for Doyle Lawson; Vincent played with Rick Skaggs Kentucky Thunder band and was part of the bluegrass family band The Sally Mountain Show, along with his sister Rhonda; B. J. Cherryholmes was the pater familia of The Cherryholmes. Everybody in the band is aces on their instruments; the band has won thirteen SPBGMA awards, thirteen IBMA Awards and a Grammy Award in 2011 for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group in 2011 and another for Best Bluegrass Album in 2013. Their last record was 2013 Brothers Of The Highway, which reached #2 on the Bluegrass Chart and #40 on the Country Chart. The upshot of this is to make it clear that what you'll get at this show is top-of-the-line bluegrass with a bit of country stirred into, as they sing Statler Brothers' tunes, too. Tickets for the show at the Paul W. Ogle Center at IUS, November 1, are $28 adults/$10 Students.
Here's the official video for "When I Stop Dreaming":
