The Web Returns!

Much underreported is the news that one of Louisville's all time great bands, THE WEB, will be returning to the stage to open for Shellac and Shannon Wright on November 21st at the 9:30 Listening Room. The show is a benefit for Jason Noble. The Web were active in Louisville in the mid to late 1990s, but have only played one show in the past ten years or so. Here's hoping that this upcoming performance is a harbinger of more to come (and we've heard whispers that it is). A sample of The Web's awesomeness can be heard here. Tickets for the show are $17 in advance and $20 day of the show. They can be purchased at Ear Xtacy or
