Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Coming To The Louisville Palace June 16,2014

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on November 18, 2013

Following a wildly captivating — and completely sold out — North American tour in early 2013, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds return to the U.S. in the summer of 2014 to take care of some unfinished business.

Throughout this jaunt, the band will be bringing their fervent live show to familiar cities as well as municipalities that have yet to be graced (or confronted) with a Bad Seeds live experience.

On November 14th, Nick Cave partnered with the Association of Alternative Newspapers (AAN) for a special invitation-only web press conference. During this conference, journalists from AAN-member publications were able to ask Nick questions about Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ upcoming tour, current & past albums and a variety of other subjects. Today, readers of AAN-member publications will receive priority access to a special ticket 24 hour pre-sale on November 19 for the newly announced 2014 dates. Along with the pre-sale, readers are also able to download “The Mercy Seat” and “Mermaids” from the forthcoming Live From KCRW album from altweeklies.com and leoweekly.com.

This tour announcement precedes the release of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Live From KCRW (Bad Seed Ltd). The fourth official live album in the band’s catalog will feature stripped-down songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Push the Sky Away, as well as other tracks from their discography. Live From KCRW will be available November 29th in both CD and double vinyl formats exclusively at Record Store Day stores. The vinyl edition will include bonus tracks “Into My Arms” and “God Is In The House.” A full list of Record Store Day distributors can be found at www.recordstoreday.com/VenuesLive From KCRW will see wide release digitally on December 3. The album will also be available as a digital deluxe bundle with Push the Sky Away.

Louisville Palace announces new shows Bob Dylan/ Hall and Oats

Bob Dylan w/ The Wild Feathers

Sunday, April 28, 2013

8:00pm

Born Robert Allen Zimmerman; (May 24, 1941) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, record producer, artist, poet, and writer. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when he was an informal chronicler and a seemingly reluctant figurehead of social unrest. A number of Dylan’s early songs, such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin’“, became anthems for the US civil rightsand anti-warmovements. Leaving his initial base in the culture of folk music behind, Dylan’s six-minute single “Like a Rolling Stone” radically altered the parameters of popular music in 1965. His recordings employing electric instruments attracted denunciation and criticism from others in the folk movement.

Dylan’s lyrics have incorporated a variety of political, social, philosophical, biblical and literary influences. They defied existing pop music conventions and appealed hugely to the then burgeoning counterculture. Initially inspired by the performance style of Little Richard,and the songwriting of Woody Guthrie, Robert Johnson,and Hank Williams. Dylan has both amplified and personalized musical genres. His recording career, spanning fifty years, has explored many of the traditions in American song—from folk, blues and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and swing.Dylan performs with guitar, keyboards, and harmonica. Backed by a changing line-up of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the Never Ending Tour. His accomplishments as a recording artist and performer have been central to his career, but his greatest contribution is generally considered to be his songwriting.

Daryl Hall & John Oates w/ Mutlu

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

7:30pm

Daryl Hall and John Oates are the NUMBER-ONE SELLING DUO in music history!

Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have become such musical influences on some of today’s popular artists that the September 2006 cover of Spin Magazine’s headline read: “Why Hall and Oates are the New Velvet Underground.” Their artistic fan base includes Rob Thomas, John Mayer, Brandon Flowers of the Killers, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and MTV’s newest hipsters Gym Class Heroes who dubbed their tour “Daryl Hall for President Tour 2007.” One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion.

Signed to Atlantic by Ahmet Ertegan in the 1970’s, Daryl Hall & John Oates have sold more albums than any other duo in music history. Their 1973 debut album, Abandoned Luncheonette, produced by Arif Mardin, yielded the Top 10 single, “She’s Gone,” which also went to #1 on the R&B charts when it was covered by Taveras. The duo recorded one more album with Atlantic, War Babies, (produced by Todd Rundgren) before they were dropped and promptly signed to RCA. Their tenure at RCA would catapult the duo to international superstardom.

Soundgarden to Play The Louisville Palace on May 10

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on February 25, 2013

Soundgarden

Friday, May 10, 2013

7:30pm

Formed in Seattle, Washington in 1984 by singer and rhythm guitarist Chris Cornell, lead guitarist Kim Thayil, and bassist Hiro Yamamoto. Matt Cameron became the band’s full-time drummer in 1986, while bassist Ben Shepherd became a permanent replacement for Yamamoto in 1990.

Soundgarden was one of the seminal bands in the creation of grunge, a style of alternative rock that developed in Seattle, and was one of a number of grunge bands signed to the record label Sub Pop. Soundgarden was the first grunge band to sign to a major label (A&M Records, in 1988), though the band did not achieve commercial success until they popularized the genre in the early 1990s with Seattle contemporaries Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam.

Soundgarden achieved its biggest success with the 1994 album Superunknown, which debuted at number one on the Billboard charts and yielded the Grammy Award-winning singles “Black Hole Sun” and “Spoonman“. In 1997, the band broke up due to internal strife over its creative direction. After several years working on projects and other bands, Soundgarden reunited in 2010 and their sixth studio album, King Animal, was released two years later.

As of 2012, Soundgarden had sold over 10.5 million records in the United States, and an estimated 22.5 million worldwide.

Local Bands gave music fans a great reason to be thankful this Holiday weekend.

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on November 26, 2012

Faces at The Palace

Sold Out Headliners Music Hall with Houndmouth

If we didn’t have enough to be thankful for this Holiday. Local bands and venues gave us another reason to be proud of our music scene.

The third installment of  Louisville Palace’s “Faces in the Palace” featured ,The Ladybirds , Bodeco and The Junk Yard Dogs. The majestic theater greeted it’s largest crowd of the “Faces” series and they were not disappointed. Each band brought their A game to the event.

The LadyBirds began the night showcasing why they are clearly one of the best rockabilly bands in the business.

Bodeco  playing their first performance in two years played an outstanding set and was clearly the favorite of the night. The band was on from the start, led by the amazing bass lines of Jimmy Brown.

The Junk Yard Dogs wrapped up the event with a strong set that gave the exhausted audience a second wind.

Congratulations to staff at The Louisville Place and WFPK particularly Sydney O’Brien for making this an exciting event for our local music scene.

Saturday’s show at Headliners Music Hall featured New Albany’s own , Houndmouth.

The young band (less than a year old) has made a lot of noise this past year securing a record contract with Rough Trade and gaining national attention at the SXSW Festival while touring with Britain’s  “Dry The River”,

The venue was full of friends and family and sold out hours before the show.

This band has great stage presence and full of talent. They are yet to release their first album but it didn’t stop the audience from singing along. They started the show with songs from their EP released earlier this year and played many new songs some of which the had only played once live before.

This band has the talent to be stars in the years to come and it was a homecoming that they will not forget.

Nashville’s songwriter, guitarist, and singer Andrew Combs was also on the bill and played a beautiful set highlighting his strong voice and band. Combs just released his debut album, Worried Man, which American Songwriter  has called “one of the year’s finest.”

It was a special night full of energy and excitement. A perfect ending to a weekend to be thankful for!
