R.I.P. Steve Rigot

P. Belker
Much respect and admiration to one of the pioneers of punk music in Louisville, Steve Rigot, who passed away today.  Steve's work in The Endtables, The Monsters, Skull of Glee, Women Who Love Candy, Common Law Cabin, etc... is untouchable.  Our thoughts go out to his many loved ones.

Brian Foor CD Release Party

Brian Foor will be releasing his newest CD, Of Brass & Chrome, this Saturday at the recently re-opened Cathouse.  The event will begin with a listening party and dinner at 8pm followed by performances from Foor's current band ASM A TIK and the debut of the recently repatriated William Benton's CAT CASUAL & THE HOLY MIDNIGHT (also featuring Brian Foor).  $5 cover gets you admission plus your Brian Foor fix will be satiated.  Of Brass & Chrome will be available at the event via Louisville Lip Records for a paltry sum unequal to the awesomeness that it surely contains.

The Cathouse is also seeking to raise funds via an IndieGogo campaign to make improvements to the facility to make it a more accommodating performance space for a wider variety of events.  Insider Louisville just did a story on it here.  Please consider supporting the cause.
