The New Vintage
Next month, ZaZoo’s (102 Bauer Ave., 894-8030) will begin hosting weekly shows featuring Louisville musicians in an effort to create another oasis for original music in St. Matthews. Created by journalist, writer and promoter Hunter Embry, engineer and current Cabin drummer Dave Chale and ZaZoo’s owner Mike Burlew, The New Vintage concert series kicks off Feb. 5 with Wax Fang singer and guitarist Scott Carney, Cougar Express and Embry’s group, The Bad Reeds. “So far, so good. The process has gone smoothly, and everyone involved is extremely excited about the showcase,” Embry said in a news release. “Going to see a show at ZaZoo’s will be a completely different experience now.” Bands interested in playing The New Vintage can e-mail Embry at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 819-2723.
