In Louisville we had a Kentucky Hot Brown, it was good.

Here's a video we made about Louisville a few years back: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQQ0BhTLsWc

Hope you like it.

There was a Louisville-themed show on BBC Radio 6 last night. Thought some people here might be interested (hopefully this is available in the US).

That seems like a rum old idea for a programme. Two people, neither of whom 'were there' or had anything much to do with the time or music they're talking about, saying things like 'Spiderland, yeah, it had six tracks of course and Slint only did two albums before breaking up because it was so intense.'

Admittedly I gave up pretty quickly so it might get better and more insightful but I don't quite know who that would be aimed at? Surely they should have realised all the real (read: vaguely Aspergersy) math rock fans would know all this and not want to tune in (read: actually we're all on here arguing about gun control and whether England has a queen or not)

Yeah, it wasn't particularly insightful. Just a themed show to play music around. Should have mentioned.

I've got a good friend that moved to Lexington not long ago and I've got a free place to crash should I want to catch a show in Louisville. Could someone maybe list a few venues to keep my eye on?

So far I've got Headliners, Vernon Lanes, and Phoenix Hill Tavern bookmarked from looking around this thread, but I'm sure I'm missing some.

I'm hoping someone local to the area could possibly explain the demise of these projects, more importantly though, what (if any) projects their members are working on now:

Wolverine Brass
Plows
Pusher

Any info is appreciated!

Thanks John W!

And a side note, Plows are excellent. I would also be curious as to what their members are up to.

I know I mentioned this in the other thread, but Billy from Wolverine Brass is now in forum favorites Trophy Wives. I believe the other guitarist Stephen was also involved with T. Wives early on, and appears on some of the T. Wives LP.

Billy Bisig (Wolverine Brass) is the front man for Trophy Wives who have played a bazillion PRF things.

David Brooks (Plows) use to play bass in an awesome band called Prideswallower for a while but they have disbanded and now David customizes vans for vanning competitions and touring band vans.

Aaron Osbourne (Plows) now lives in Chicago and is in band called Life Partner in which, I believe, he plays all the instruments on recordings. He was also the drummer in IN/KY/Chicago based freak folk band State Champion who are awesome as well.

Eric McManus (Pusher) is the drummer for on-again-off-again power rockers Nixon along with former Pusher member Matt Jaha. Nixon also has Trophy Wives bassist Tony Ash (PRF member Snowblinder) and Hookers guitarist Doug Walker. Eric also is the auxiliary drummer for Trophy Wives, The Hookers, and Kiss It Goodbye.

No one's mentioned Evergreen? So damn good, so underrated. Kinda like the Stooges meets Slint and Fugazi, if that makes sense.

Anytime I talk to Louisville folk about these guys - the stories they have are amazing. Apparently they were all bat-shit insane.

Never saw em live - and I've never seen any live footage.

Going to be hitting the Louisville area as a bachelor party/roadtrip for a friend a couple of weekdays next month. We definitely want to hit 2 distilleries. Thinking Buffalo Trace and Woodford Reserve but I did see Heaven Hill was recommended already. Thoughts?

We're all beer nerds so Holy Grale will probably be a stop. Looking for some recommendations for eats and/or things to do. Any good BBQ for example?

I don't know about BBQ, but if you like Cuban Food and don't mind driving a few minutes east to St. Matthews, Havana Rumba is the shit. Gets crowded though - usually a wait unless you get there early. Weird location in a strip mall, but good fuckin food man.

Haven't been on the Buffalo Trace or Woodford tour but I have heard great things. I personally have been on the Heaven Hill and Makers Mark tours, both awesome. Both have tastings, an 80 year old guy guides a tour of the distillery houses/founder houses. Buffalo Trace, and Heaven Hill are about 35-40 minutes south of metro Louisville. Makers is further south in Laredo, KY

Holy Grale is a cool place. Get there early because it gets packed in there and there's really not much room to sit or stand in there. The owner of Holy Grale also has his own craft beer store/bar called The Louisville Beer Store too. If your into beer, you should definitely go to neighborhood hipster haven Nach Bar. Tons of great beer from around the world there.

As far as eats go:
Four Pegs: Amazing gastropub food and beer. They have a chicken and waffle sandwich that will change your life.

Frankfort Ave Beer Depot (F.A.B.D.): Good standard BBQ

Hammerheads: Gourmet comfort food that rocks. Winners of many local food competitions

Against the Grain Awesome local brewery with great food located inside Sluggerfield. I took Police Teeth here while they were on tour.

I second this. Havana Rhumba is the only Cuban food in town worth 2 damns.

Good luck and have fun on your trip.
