Brigid Kaelin has a new video of the country Hanukkah classic, “Mazel Tonk,” involving the Blue Dreidel from her 2007 video “Dreidel’s Day Out (Blue Dreidel No. 9)”. Shot during Bardstown Aglow, the video was directed by Allison Stovall with cinematography by Jesie Lynn White. Brigid claims “I had absolutely nothing to do with this video.”

Syd Bishop has a length story in this Week’s LEO on the new low power FM radio stations in Louisville, with Crescent Hill Radio, ARTxFM, FORward Radio and Vault 1031 featured. Quite a solid story a new wrinkle in the radio market in Louisville. Read it here. (The story seems to be the cover but as the LEOWeekly.com site is undergoing changes, it’s hard to tell, and your honorable editor hasn’t picked a physical copy as yet.)

Back in 2013, singer Todd Snider put together a band he calls Hard Working Americans, which is bassist Dave Schools from Widespread Panic, Neal Casal of Chris Robinson Brotherhood on guitar and vocals, Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi on keyboards and Duane Trucks, younger brother to Derek on drums: that is  to say, rather of a rock supergroup. They’ve mostly been touring but stopped long enough to put out a self-title debut album at the beginning of this year. Snider, of course, has a long history as a singer-songwriter with a more-or-less cult following: he’s been here a bunch of times. The band also has a rockumentary called “The First Waltz,” which was just released. It’s available at the website plus all the usual places. The new band will be at Headliners Music Hall on December 14. Tickets are $25. Should be interesting.
Here’s a live version of “Wrecking Ball”:

:Pop Evil has made Louisville a favorite stop since at least 2008, when they played a Phoenix Hill show; they repeated that stop nearly ten times, before playing the Louder Than Life Festival in September. Now they’re back, but at the Mercury Ballroom this time, on December 12. They’ve got a fan base and they’re still supporting their latest record, Onyx, which also lends its name to the tour – Oynx Set In Stone Tour, so expect a nice turn-out. Islander and Red Sun Rising are supporting the show. Tickets are $15.

Check out “Deal With The Devil” for a taste fo the new record:
