B-sides: Motherlodge Festival

Louisville’s Ray Rizzo and a few close friends have put on a weeklong series of shows dubbed the Motherlodge Festival. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because it was the name of a compilation CD released some years back to benefit The Rudyard Kipling (422 W. Oak St., 636-1311). This year, the festival version has expanded. The rundown:
