They are on my 'quite like, will tolerate' list so I may well pop along to that if it doesn't clash with anything else. Might also take a trip down to St Louis to see the Breeders whilst there. I'd like to see some local bands too. I saw Sea Hero and Old Baby and Julie of The Wolves last year. Any local bands anybody would care to recommend?

Louisville - I will be in you from tomorrow evening until September 4th. If anybody hears of anything specific going on that I might want to check out please post here. I think I'm going to try to go to this show tomorrow night:

If you feel like being friendly in a non-virtual way write me a note here as I'm pretty sure I can't get to PMs on my phone.

Evan from Youg Widows/Old Baby's side project, Jaye Jayle, are playing tonight at Zanzabar - I'll be there. If you're there and spot a pale Englishwoman with a grey streak in her hair, that'll be me - come say hi. I'm nice.

Bummer. I get why, but still - sad to see it go.

This is the longest of shots but: my girlfriend and I have had a hell of a bad streak of late (car expenses, vet bills, etc) and she can't seem to find a decent job.

Anyone down Louisville way know of a bartending job that would be worth pursuing?

It's a pretty grim time right now and we need some help. Winter blues is one thing but all this other shit has made it real bad.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Also...also....
I am sitting on a massive archive of hi8 tapes. One of the things we were looking forward to doing here at the Cathouse was showing a lot of shows from the past 15 or so years that people have never seen before converting them to digital for online consumption.
However, it would seem that the entire world lost their player/cameras all at the same time. I looked into a few of the services and tell him that convert and the rates are just way too high especially for all of the hours that I have.

So. Anybody have one? It will be very much taking care of. I have someone lined up who is happy to convert everything for free we just need to be able to play the original tapes.

Videos include: Shipping News, Bodyhammer (lots), Black Heart Procession, Servotron (final show was Louisville- was a riot), MOAM? (A few), Lucky Pineapple (many shows, plus recording at EA, etc), Red Sun, Ousia, Blue Collar Revenge Theory, Tyrone (shows, recording, tour), Make-Up, Fugazi, Seaside Panel, Lynyrd's Innards, and many others that elude me while I lay here in bed, tapping at this idiot phone.

I finally unearthed this and got around to uploading...
https://archive.org/details/Servotron8.8.98
In case you aren't aware: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Servotron

This show is quite legendary around these parts. I am pretty sure that this was their last performance.

Great Louisville bashing. Digs at 1/4 Stick, Rachels, Kinghorse, etc. (Worth noting: Sean G. aka "Rat" punched out Zeke from VHS or Beta before the show. Some references to that.)

The best kind of Servotron show: when a certain fraction of the crowd is offended. I saw them where people were trying to get onstage to fight them. I saw them make a girl cry in Cincinnati.

I have a video of this show on Hi8. Hope it can be transferred some day.

Just got sent this link via the Rachel Grime's newsletter. If I was in town I would be all over several of these seminars/talks. They look awesome:

Just a heads up for anyone who will be in town for derby: this year I will be renting out my dick to business men who are too drunk to fuck the hookers they've bought.

Tuesday May 19th the fervor will be playing a show at the New Vintage with R. Ring, Shivering Timbers and Quailbones. R. Ring features Kelley Deal, who appeals to some on this board.

A few Louisville-centric Youtube videos I have uploaded recently:

Bodyhammer, 1 of 3 sets from summer 2000, at BRYCC House in Louisville, Ky:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NREQKkSTaLg

Servotron, 8.8.98 at Mercury Paw in Louisville, KY; final show and a good way to go, with some very effective heckling at Louisville, 1/4 Stick, Kinghorse, Rachels, etc.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yo0rSD8tjAk

Tyrone, somewhere near the last show, Za's Pizza Pub in Louisville, KY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abJshWXJbQs

The Make-Up, 5.1.98 at Sugar Doe Cafe, Louisville, KY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAiKFywZReA

More on the way. If you care.

Imma put a buncha' Louisville shit right here..........

Some more behind the scenes footage from the Louisville Burn to Shine has been unearthed (I made a tape for my younger brother years ago; he is even more anti-social than I am. He lent it to me. So it'll be another year or two before we speak again.)
It's mostly LORDS loading in, checking, etc.
Mr. Weston does some world class pacing and loitering here...

Tonight I will be DJing the Gear Off Market some. So if you're in Louisville under any circumstance, check this out as you can buy, sell, trade your gear, records, stereo equipment, etc...anything loosely music gear related.

Then I scurry off to supply some guitar chaos as a guest of Andrew Rinehart here:
https://www.facebook.com/events/512740558933442/

Before returning to my home, The Cathouse, to DJ the after party.

I am very glad to have Mr Robert Rob Bobby Bob Ross of Sump Pumps fame play our next show with Cat Casual and the Holy Midnight over at Zbar on 4/29. Super happy about that.

Here is a song I did recently with Bonnie Prince Billy.
It was a grand ol time. It's our sexy "Suicide meets a chain gang" tune.

I'm thinking of hitting Louisville for a two-day in the near future and looking for recommendations on what to check out.

I'm more of a walking around type of person, will probably hit Hoosier National Park while I'm there. Any neighborhoods I should visit? Unfortunately bourbon and BBQ aren't really my jam but my tastes in most other shit generally parallel my PRF brethren so any advice appreciated.

The Highlands and Germantown neighbourhoods are good for just walking around and have lots of good places to eat and shop. Plenty of record shops.
