Shows Of Note
Thursday, July 31, 2014

From Down Under comes the blues and rock jamband trio called the John Butler Trio, led by - well - John Butler. It's been seven years since they made a stop in Louisville, playng Headliners and ear X-tacy on that occasion. Of course, it requires some serious plannning to make the journey, so we should not be too judgmental. They've scored a number of wins in Australia song awards, including the Australian Recording Industry Association (for Best Blues & Roots Album, twice) and the J Awards, from an Australian national youth radio station. They have a just-released album, Flesh & Blood, to promote. They'll be doing so at the Iroquois Amphitheater on July 31. Tickets are $30.

New Bravado is celebrating the release of Translucent Dreams with a show at the New Vintage on August 1. As is the usual practice the NV, the bill will also feature additional bands, in this case, Mimi Von Schnitzl, Temple Of The Golden Dawn and Killer Moon. Tickets are only $5. For a flavor of the show, take a gander at this video from Mimi Von Schnitzl, "Mass Of Matter":

Here's a bluegrass show to stretch your budget: a fundraiser called Creekside Jam, at the Humana Grand Allee in Beckley Creek Park, featuring Sam Bush and Band, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage and Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. Good lord, you might gasp - how could that big a show be out in a park nobody knows about? But that's just you, Bucky, not paying attention. It's all part of the Parklands of Floyds Fork in eastern Jefferson County that's been under construction for some time now. This show is for the Beckley Creek Park section and is expected to bring in some heavy hitters from around the metro. (They hired the heavy hitters for the bluegrass.) No need to detail the history and status of Bush, Vincent and Skaggs - if you don't know, then this show is not likely to interest you. On August 1. Tickets are $55 adv/ $65 DoS.

Here's Sam Bush's set at the 2013 edition of ROMP:

Lord have mercy - as if a show featuring Sam Bush, Ricky Skaggs and Rhonda Vincent wasn't enough to make any Bluegrass fan reach for his/her wallet, there's a Jerry Douglas show on the same day - August 1. This one is at the Kentucky Country Day Theatre, which is very nice, new venue out in the East End. Douglas, for those of you unfamiliar with him, is, arguably, the premiere Dobro player in the world. He spends most of his time as a session player (1,600+ albums and counting), touring with Alison Krauss And Union Station plus recording his own records. His Grammy Awards total is a lucky thirteen and he has won the Country Music Association's "Musician of The Year" award three times, plus a number of other assorted awards. His bona fides are beyond any doubt, even for a very picky Bluegrass fan. The only considerations are: 1.) do you like resonator guitar music 2.) Do you have enough money and 3) did you not get tickets to see Bush, Vincent and Skaggs? If you answered 'Yes' to these three questions, then you should be out a Kentucky Country Day on August 1. Tickets are $25-$35, which are a bit more reasonable than the tickets to the Creekside event.
