How often do you get to call the shots? Well, how about for The Ataris, who are stopping in at Headliners on the You Call The Shots Tour, along with Teenage Kicks, Fast Friends and Blacklist Royals, on November 21. The Ataris a band that began in Anderson, Indiana, who’ve been punkin’ and rollin’ for nearly a decade. As these things happen, the personnel changes have been frequent enough that the band is like the old farmer’s axe: hey, it’s the same axe/band. There’s one original member left, actually, They’ve got five studio albums, includng one certified gold (So Long, Astoria) back in 2009. They’ve managed one chart single, “The Boys Of Summer,” in 2003. In short, it’s a journeyman rock band. For this tour, the fans will pick the songs, as advertised. Tickets are $15. It’s an 18-and-over show.

Vocalist and bassist John Cowan has been a musical presence in the Louisville area for a long time, going back to the Newgrass days at the Great Midwestern Music Hall and continuing on through the various bands he has assembled and fronted. Although generally known as “The Voice Of Newgrass,” his choice of musical styles ranges widely, through soul to the Doobie Brothers, with whom he is a touring member. Now he has joined with John McFee and Friends at for a show at Headliners Music Hall on September 18, celebrating his new Sixty album, which McFee, a Doobie Brothers bandmate, produced. The album has gotten a good reception in the Americana market, including getting airplay on WFPK. No doubt, Louisville will welcome him back, no doubt. Tickets to the show are $30 Reserved Seats / $20 SRO.

Jars Of Clay
Christian indie rock band Jars of Clay has been successful with their mix of rock and Christianity for going on twenty-plus years, sort of a case of “Christian rockers before Christian rockers were cool.” Well, after all, Adrian Belew of King Crimson produced two songs on their debut album, so they have rock chops; the band name came from 2 Corinthians 4:7. They have an extensive discography (eleven studio albums, plus two live albums, seven video albums and more) as well as a substantial collection of GMA Dove Awards and three Grammy Awards for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album. They also have several BMI awards for “Most Performed Song” in their genre. Their latest ablum, Inland, was released in August of this year (Read Hollywood Reporter’s review here), so you’ll hear some new tunes as well as a selection of favorites from previous records when they play Headliners on December 12. John Mark McMillan will open. Tickets are $15/$35 VIP.

The official video for “Fall Asleep” from Inland:

Cheyenne Mize
Seluah
Seluah teams up with Cheyenne Marie Mize for a December 1 show at Headliners, kicking off the holiday music season with a contrasting mix of some of Louisville’s finest original music. Seluah, of course, has recently re-arisen after a long silence, with Red Parole, a widely praised album recorded at Kevin Ratterman’s The Funeral Home studio. Tagged as “melding elements of Massive Attack, Portishead, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, The Ventures and Radiohead,” Seluah walks a path trod by very few other bands. In other words, it’s a Louisville band.
Cheyenne Mize has been at the receiving end of a lot of praise and no small amount of opportunities since releasing her first SonaBLAST! project, Before Lately. The New York Times described her music as “tough, dreamy, cloudy-sky country and chamber pop,” with a “rare voice, sweet without being cloying, and weary without hopelessness.” She has a new record, Among The Grey, released last June to promote. Tickets are only $5.

Bill Callahan Gets Intense At Headliners

 Americana, Concerts, LMNEditor, Previews, Video  Comments Off on Bill Callahan Gets Intense At Headliners
Apr 282013
 

Bill Callahan

The idiosyncratic singer-songwriter Bill Callahan (of Smog fame) will present a show at Headliners Music Hall on May 2. Just how appropriate a show this might be in the middle of Derby Week is open to discussion – Critics have characterized his music as “depressing and intensely introverted, with one critic describing it as ‘a peep-show view into an insular world of alienation.’” He’s also noted for a seriously DIY approach to guitar-playing and singing, with a simplistic songwriting technique. However, other musicians like his work and have covered some of his songs. For $20, you can magnify your depression, infect your brain with some of his eerie lyrics or else work thr:ugh it with a musical cartharsis.

Roadkill Ghost Choir

Florida indie folk-rock band Roadkill Ghost Choir takes the top spot in a three-band show at Headliners on April 4. RGC readily admits to being under the influence of Wilco and Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan and Fleetwood Mac. Less in that vein, they count Nirvana and Radiohead as impacting their sound. Taken together, they should fit right into the mainstream of late 20th Century popular music. Also on the bill are Louisville’s Beady, recently signed to SonaBLAST! Records and Field Of Kings, promoting their first record. Tickets are $5 adv/ $8 DoS.
The video is “Beggars Guild”:
