Little Heart Records continues to gather up punk and post-punk (and variations thereon) bands, building a pretty impressive roster for a Louisville label. A Syd Bishop review of You And Yours by Fast Friends, a Louisville post-punk band, has the band listed as a Little Heart act but the label’s website doesn’t list them, suggesting that Bishop is ahead of the label. It’s a ‘problem’ most labels would die for, of course. In any case, read it yourself here.

Uh HUh Baby Yeah!
Little Heart Records’ artists Uh Huh Baby Yeah! have been invited to play the Warped Tour, which is a pretty big deal. Unfortunately, front man Kevin Fletcher has this little bit of a problem – he has a wife and kids and a job that supports them. Needless to say, if he’s on tour for two months (July-August), he won’t be working and so his family won’t have any income. Accordingly, they’re playing a last-minute show tonight, June 13, at The Levee Bar & Grill, 1005 W Market S. in Jeffersonville to raise some money for Fletcher. They’re taking donations, too, both at the show and via www.gofundme.com/396h18.

So this is a rather unusual situation for a benefit – asking for donations to help someone succeed rather to help someone out of a bad jam. An all together easier decision to make, I think.
