Shows Of Note
Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Rapcore group Hed (PE) comes back to town for a show at Expo 5, on April 28, along with Josh Woods, Chadillac Dundee, Hybrid The Rapper, Midnight Dizturbance, Bus Hus  and Inhansed. Hed (PE) has been at it since 1994; their latest album is 2014's Evolution. If you need a sense of their music, try mixing Bob Marley with Nine Inch Nails, Black Sabbath and The Notorius B.I.G. Hmm. Better yet, watch the video below. Tickets are only $15, cheap for Derby Week.

Frankfort-bred electro-funk band Midnight Star returns for Derby Week  at the Kroger Fest-A-Ville on April 28, opening for the Grammy Award-winning LA funk band Rose Royce, currently working on a new album for their 25th anniversary. It all happens at the Kroger Fest-A-Ville stage and only requires a 2015 Pegasus Pin to get in. Fonky, funky, groove-heavy. Wear good shoes/

Peter Hook And The Light at Headliners Music Hall on April 29 will likely get you a stack of Seventies-era bands Joy Division and New Order tunes, both bands that Hook was bassist in. It's kind of weird - a recreation of  previous bands with only one original member, when there are others. Whaterver. Joy Division definitely falls into the "cult band" status, due in large part to the suicide of the original vocalist, Ian Curtis, at age 23, which resulted in the remaining members continuing as New Order. Tickets are $20. Watch Hook and the Light play "Love Will Tear Us Apart":

Ryan Adams comes back to town for a show at the Iroquois Amphitheater, with Jenny Lewis, on  April 30. THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT. The prolific singer-songwriter, of WhiskeyTown and Ryan Adams and The Cardinals fame, is currently touring in support of his eponymous 2014 album, number fourteen in his discography. Adams is one of those performers who audiences either love or hate, with his sometimes-prickly behavior reinforcing those who don't like him. Tickets to the show are $47.50. Check out "Gimme Something Good" from Ryan Adams:

The Freakwater team (Catherine Irwin, Janet Beveridge Bean, David Wayne Gay plus supporting players) comes home for a Derby Week show (a great excuse to get to town for Derby, hey?) with Jaye Jayle and Drunken Prayer at The New Vintage on Thursday, April 30. Even though it seems that the band is defunct - given their infrequent shows - they are scheduled to release a new record later this year, so you might hear some new music at the New Vintage gig. (Of course, they are an acquired taste.) Tickets are only $10 adv.$12 Dos. Watch this video of a recent performance:

JJ Grey and MOFRO have pert near made Louisville a second home, with eleven show here in nine years. The next one is at Iroquois Amphitheater on Derby Eve, May 1. Their mix of  Southern rock, soul, funk and blues into a jam band format seems to suit Louisville fans quite well. They have a new album, Ol' Glory, to play for you. Tickets are $25 adv. and $30 DoS. Watch the video for "Every Minute" from the new record:

If JJ Grey is not to your taste or maybe you don't really want to get crazy on Derby Eve, then head over to Jim Porter's for an evening of the certified crazy country singer Unknown Hinson, who has definitely found his home in Louisville. Generally described as "a dark parody of the country western stars from the 1950s through the mid-1980s," Hinson specializes in a variety of hick black comedy (think "Hee Haw" meets meets "The Adams Family" in Springfield). You have to see it, really, Vice Tricks will open. Tickets are only $15. Check out this live performance in Nashville from last year:

Miami-based DJ Craze takes the closer spot for the Kroger Fest-A-Ville on Derby Eve, May 1. His sounds get this tag "an eclectic mix of hip hop, trap, breaks, dubstep, drum and bass infused sounds." Sounds like a DJ. He was named "American's Best DJ" in 2001, if that counts. All it takes is a Pegasus Pin to get in.
