As Derby fever builds heading into Saturday’s peak, the music blurs into all the rest of the noise of the festival. Nonetheless, there is plenty, although not of the level of some years back, when Derby Eve shows were seriously major events. For a list of some of the more interesting shows over the next few days, check the main Louisville Music News site (or just look to the left column on this one.) Notably, though, is the Waterfront show featuring Walk The Moon and Ha Ha Tonka. With the storms past, it should be a night to head over to the river, as it will be hot. Oh, yes, and there’s that steamboat race, too.

Meanwhile, Peter Berkowitz has his list which includes the debut show at the new, very large Art Space/Warehouse named The Mammoth at 744 S. 13th Street, featuring Faun Fables, Ohlm, Ford Theatre Reunion, Opposable Thumbs, Parlour, Madame Machine and Softcheque on Derby Night. Berkowitz also has an interview with Faun Fables.
Berkowitz also interviewed via animo, playing a house concert on May 8.

LEO’s music coverage this week features a phoner with Low by T.E. Lyons as well as a Sara Havens phoner with Uh Huh Her, playing at Southgate. There is a review of Young Widows new CD, In and Out of Youth and Lightness; one of Deer Meet’s You Can Walk Across It on the Grass and finally, a review of Matthew Cooper (a.k.a. Eluvium)’s Some Days Are Better Than Others Soundtrack.

As usual, the Velocity page at the C-J is kind of vague: there is a Joe Lord article about his guilt concerning ‘free stuff’ on the Internets. There’s also a “favorites’ sort of story about Walk The Moon, playing Waterfront Wednesday on April 27. Okay, that looks like that’s it.

WFPK’s Waterfront Wednesdays series for 2011 begins on April 27, when Walk The Moon, Sara Jaffe and The Deloreans are presented on the Harbor Lawn. Music starts at 6 p.m. The remaining concerts will be held on May 25, June 29, July 27, August 31 and, an early one, September 21, to avoid a conflict with the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, which begins on September 28 at sundown. All concerts are free; The Waterfront Development Corporation is a co-sponsor with WFPK.
