Country singer Justin Moore has made stops in Louisville a number of times over the past five years, but generally in the center of town. For this stop, he’s across the river at the Horseshoe Casino, which is a bit of a curious place for a rising country star to play. (Usually, the casino shows are on the way down.) He’s doing pretty well of late, too, having won the award for New Artist Of The Year 2104 at the Academy Of Country Music Awards. His most recent album, Off The Beaten Path, hit No. 1 on the US Country chart and #2 on the Billboard 200. His No. 1 hit singles include “Small Town USA”, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” and “Till My Last Day,” so he’s got staying power. Maybe his next stop will be headlining a tour at the Yum! Center. Tickets for the show on the 19th are $42.50 and $47.50.
Here’s “Lettin’ The Night Roll” from his latest album:

Dom Cipolla’s Phantom Family Halo comes back to town for a show at The New Vintage, which is tagged a “record release” show for Raven Town Witch, on Sophomore Lounge Records. Based on the current bio photos, PFH seems to be a trio, but that could change once they get to town, given the PFH alumna who live here. Also on the bill are Jaye Jayle and Dane Waters, both of whom are inclined to do interesting things with their music. Ticket for the April 18 show are $6.

Here’s “Hard Apple Moon Stomp” from the new record:

Saturday, April 19 is Record Store Day around the country and, of course, Louisville record stores are participating. The biggest event seems to be the Record Store Block Party staged by Astro Black Records, Fat Rabbit and Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge in the 1000 Block of East Oak Street. It’s an all-day event, set to run from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and will feature – among others – Scott Carney of Wax Fang, Anwar Sadat, Chicago’s Animal City, Billy Petot of Whistle Peak and a couple more out-of-town bands, Kal Marks from Boston and Microwaves from Pittsburgh. Cropped Out, Karate Body, Sophomore Lounge and Cavalcade Magazine are co-sponsoring the event.

Miiii-leeee, Miiii-leee! Yep, Miley Cyrus will perform at the KFC Yum! Center on Saturday, April 19, heading up the Bangerz Tour, along with Sky Ferreira and Icona Pop. The truth is, this is not a show that needs plugging – you (or your children) are already fans enough to be willing to spend the dollars it takes to see her or you think she’s a circus sideshow that long ago jumped the shark. The show is pretty racy (duh!), with Cyrus long ago having dumped the Hannah Montana persona in favor of a sexpot singing sex pop. Tickets range from the binoculars-needed seats at $19.50 to US $89.50.

Here’s Wrecking Bell>

Miss Shevaughn And Yuma Wray, who could be billed Mr. and Mrs Shevaughn and Yuma Wray (or as Erin and Chris Stelloh) on account of their recent marriage on March 1, are honeymooning by going on tour in support of a new record, Lean Into The Wind. Musical partners getting hitched isn’t exactly a new phenomenon (just ask the Civil Wars – or then again, maybe don’t) but it is certainly a statement of hope in the face of reality, because being road musicians is hard on the soles, the soul and the state of most relationships. As for the new record, one reviewer wrote that they “go all Flying Burrito Brothers with a SoCal-influenced set of new songs.” That should give you a hint; you can check out the video, too. Tickets to the April 19 at the New Vintage are $5.

Sometimes, it’s best to let the publicist handle the description: “Watter is a new trio made up of close friends and collaborators whose collective pedigree reads like a desert island list of must-haves in experimental rock musicians. Multi-instrumentalists Zak Riles (Grails) and Tyler Trotter are anchored by legendary drummer Britt Walford (Slint, Evergreen) on six genre-defying pieces of monolithic mood music. For Riles and Trotter, it’s a chance to dig deeper into the sandbox in which Grails have sculpted many mercurial masterpieces in recent years; for Walford, it’s the opportunity to play a substantial role in a new active band for the first time in nearly twenty years. Written, recorded, and produced entirely in the group’s collective studios in Louisville, KY, This World is a stunning combination of heady psychedelic rock, vintage cinematic New Age explorations, and sinister Krautrock, performed with seemingly endless stamina. Born out of many late-night jam sessions, many songs also feature fellow Louisville icons - Rachel Grimes (Rachel’s) provides several of the album’s most sublime moments, and The For Carnation’s Todd Cook lays the heavy, bass-driven foundation for the penultimate epic, “Seawater.” This World is the kind of album that inspires renewed wonder in the mysterious powers of Louisville’s water supply. It draws impossibly broad inspiration from decades of Eastern and Western folk, rock, ambient, film score, library music, and neoclassical, and masterfully emerges with an ever-enveloping suite perfectly befitting its constantly curious composers.”
The track is called “Small Business”:

The Let It Ride tour, featuring Brantley Gilbert, Eric Paslay and Thomas Rhett, rolls into the KFC Yum! Center on April 18, for a big country music show sure to fire up the locals for Derby Week(s). It’s definitely a testosterone-fueled, looking for dirt roads and pretty girls with short shorts kind of event. Let It Ride is the title of Gilbert’s latest. He currently has three number one hits, including last year’s “Bottoms Up,” plus several “New Artist” awards.
Thomas Rhett’s debut album, It Goes Like This, peaked at number 2 on the US charts, with the title single hitting number1 on the US Country Airplay chart.
Paslay is just out of the chute, with a brand-new, self-titled album. Tickets run $21.75 to US $34.00

Rebelution calls themselves a Cali-reggae band, because they’re they play reggae and are from California (which is not exactly known for great reggae, but hey! Things change.) The guys in the group met in college (of course) and set about building a following, releasing an independent EP. Since that modest beginning, they have released four studio albums, including 2014’s Count Me In, which is the album they are supporting on the current tour. They’ll make their third trip to town with a show at The Mercury Ballroom, along with Common Kings, on April 18. Tickets are $17.50 adv. $20 DoS.
