The six-song collection is available for free, or you can make a payment, if you would like to support local artists.
The Fauxgues, a local tribute band dedicated to the music of the beloved and raucous Irish-via-London folk punks, will perform twice this week. Highlands Tap Room will host the band, which features members of the Ladybirds and Squeeze-bot, on Wednesday night. The crew moves to Fourth Street Live’s RiRa Irish Pub on Friday for an Oaks Night show.
Louisville punks on the air
Ken Katlin, a Louisvillian living in Cincinnati, does a radio show on Saturday afternoons, between 3 and 5, called “Trash Flow” on WAIF, 88.3 FM. In celebration of Derby, he’s doing a show dedicated to Louisville punk. It will stream live at www.waif883.org. Scheduled call-in guests include members of Your Food and the Babylon Dance Band.
New metal army

The pair is joined by the rhythm section of Chris Abromavage and Jae Brown. Their Facebook page lists their interests as “Beers, Firearms, Combustion Engines, Social Systems, Bourbons, Glass Art, Equality and Individual Freedom.”
