Enumeration Of A Murder At The Louisville Palace

Dec 082014

It comes as no surprise to Corvus fans that the collective term for a crowd of same is a murder, but to others, well, a murder of crows is just a geeky term to use in a bar contest or, as in this case, a way of playfully hiding the name of the band playing at the Palace, to wit, Counting Crows, on December 10. Okay, it’s not original, but any reference to a popular performing act with a slightly odd name isn likely to be well-used. This very well-known group rock band is touring in support of their new record, Somewhere Under Wonderful, which also is also referential, in this case, to a stage musical co-authored by frontman Adam Duritz and playwright Stephen Beiber. With twenty million copies of their seven studio records sold in the twenty-three years of their existence, there’s not a lot to prove, so head on down an enjoy a very professional band rocking out. Tickets are $29-$85. Twin Forks will open.

Watch “Palisades Park” from the new record:

Chevelle At The Palace Theatre

 LMNEditor  Comments Off on Chevelle At The Palace Theatre
Aug 092014

Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft/loud vocal styling of Tool, Chicago-based trio Chevelle’s aggressive, heavy sound is all about mounting tension exploding into raw guitar bursts.” – Sputnick Music
Aside from the problems inherent in naming your band after a General Motors car, the fact that your band was a trio of brothers is reason enough to expect more difficulties than usual. Such has been the fate of the alt-metal band Chevelle, now minus one brother, a manager (deceased) and a vanful of gear. Those are just the better-known struggles. Nevertheless, they have continued on and prevailed, releasing seven studio albums since 1999’s Point #1, selling some four million records in the process. While they have been frequently compared to Tool, they claim only an influence, not a direction. They’re touring in support of the newest record, La Gárgola, and will be at The Louisville Palace with Middle Class Rut and Dayshell, on August 13. Tickets are $25.50 -$45.50 plus fees of $12 and $13.

Here’s “Face To The Floor”:

Bob Weir And RatDog at The Palace

Bob Weir and RatDog
You could sort of call Bob Weir & Ratdog a Grateful Dead cover band, except that the rhythm guitarist for the Dead, Bob Weir, leads the band. There are certainly groups on tour who proclaim themselves to be such-and-such a famous band, having only one original member, but Bob Weir and Ratdog don’t do that. It was Weir’s band before the Dead broke up and so it shall remain. Ratdog has been on a bit of a limited schedule of late, so when it was announced that the band had returned to extensive touring in 2014 with Steve Kimock on lead guitar and the odd arrangement of two bassists in the mix, fans were jubilant. Robin Sylvester and original Ratdog bassist Rob Wasserman are back, as is original member Jay Lane and long time Ratdogger Jeff Chimenti. The 2014 return tour began on Valentine’s Day in Philadelphia and will stop at the Louisville Palace on March 12.  If you are a Dead fan, this is the show for you so far this year. Tickets range from $29.50 to $89.50.

Here’s “Bird Dog,” from a show at the House of Blues in Boston on February 24, which features the current lineup:

Michael McDonald: This Christmas – An Evening of Holiday & Hits

Michael McDonald
Former Doobie Brothers member Michael McDonald has managed to build a career post-Doobies, even if it seems rather too popish for rock fans. Howver, a man with five Grammy Awards can do whatever he pleases and which McDonald pleases to this time of year is to sing holiday music (and a few hits) in that rich baritone voice, which is what he’ll do at the Louisville Palace on December 20, with his “This Christmas – An Evening Of Holiday & Hits.” Ticket will run $29.50 to $75.

Check out this video of McDonald singing “This Christmas: Live in Chicago” early this year:
