Saturday, September 20
LOCATION: 2100 – 2300 S Preston St. Louisville, KY
HOURS: 12PM to 3AM
AGE RESTRICTIONS: All Ages until 10 PM, 21+ after 10 PM
The inaugural Seven Sense Festival will feature 20+ live musical acts (performing at two outdoor stages and three indoor locations), seven local/regional breweries, several local food trucks/booths, and numerous local vendors. The event will be free from start to finish and all ages until 10PM, at which point the event will continue into the four establishments located on Preston Street (Zanzabar, The New Vintage, Greenhaus and Purrswaytions). The festival is also benefitting the local Boys and Girls Haven, which since the ‘50s has helped the lives of more than 3,500 abandoned, abused and neglected children.
ARTISTS (set times and locations TBA)
Bodeco – In 1992, The New York Times described the quintet as “a skunky country-rockabilly outfit,” noting in 1993 that “there’s nothing quaint, cute or five-and-dime about Bodeco’s brand of rockabilly. Greasy as a truck-stop burger and bumpier than a high-speed ride in the back of a pickup, this band of Louisville wild men eschews retro contrivancesin favor of gristle, marrow and the occasional dg yowl.”
Brian Olive – Cincinnati-based Olive recently won a Grammy for his work on Dr. Johns’ Locked Down, which he co-produced with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys (who also produced Olive’s sophomore solo effort). Before that, Olive founded The Greenhornes and played in Soledad Brothers.
The Pass – Listed as one of Paste Magazine’s “10 Kentucky Bands You Should Listen to Now.”??
Old Baby – A Louisville super group featuring Jonathon Glen Wood, Evan Patterson (Young Widows, Jaye Jayle) and Todd Cook (Shipping News).
Woody Pines – Pines and Gill Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show) started the Kitchen Sycopators, a legendary busking street jug-band from Eugene, OR.
LaMont Gillispie & 100 Proof – LaMont Gillispie has spent the better part of the last 40 years becoming Louisville’s best known blues act.
Pujol – One of SPIN Magazines “Five Nashville Bands You Need To Hear Now.” The gritty, rumbling garage-punk sound of Daniel Pujol’s surnamed project has earned the support of Jack White, who produced and distributed one of Pujol’s singles via Third Man Records.
The Instruction – This will be the band’s first show in nearly a year.
Machines Are People Too – Nashville-based, psych-pop rockers are hot off appearances at Hangout Fest, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza.
