5 things to do this weekend in Louisville (1/12)

Jan 12, 2018 at 10:34 am


Catch a show! Mag Bar and Kaiju Both $5  |  Times vary Mag Bar is hosting a night of punk and pop music with performances (starting at 10 p.m.) by the post-punk band On The Bang, Milwaukee’s own power-pop fuzz band Faux Fiction and a punk band with a dash of new wave pop — The Feedback. Or you could join Kaiju for a night of local music (starting at 9 p.m.) with alternative band Bruised Fruit, singer-songwriter Zack Stefanski and improv noise, krautrock band droneroom.


Louisville Rock Lottery 2 Headliners Music Hall $15  |  10 p.m. The concept is crazy — like a fox! The Louisville Rock Lottery takes 25 musicians, randomly divides them into five bands at the beginning of the day, and asks them to come back with a new song, ready to perform, 12 hours later. Last year’s inaugural show resulted in an enormous creative outburst. So it was a no-brainer to continue it this year. See an all-new lineup perform their musical creations at 10 p.m. this Saturday at Headliners Music Hall. To read more about the event click here.

Bierhalle German American Club No cover  |  6-10 p.m. It’s that time again! Join the German American Club in its bierhalle (think indoor biergarten) for a night of authentic German cuisine and live music by The Rheingold Band, a German-themed polka, waltz and Rheinlander band. Foods for sale include schnitzel, jägerschnitzel, zigeunerschnitzle, spätzle, bratwurst, sauerkraut, German potato salad, sauerkraut balls and, of course, pretzels and beer cheese.

The Dark Market At Radio Arcane: Winterfeirer Art Sanctuary No cover  |  7 p.m.-midnight The Dark Market, your place for curated, nighttime oddities and art, is teaming up with Radio Arcane for a Winterfeirer (aka winter celebration). Expect to find art and oddities by over 15 local artists including Yoko Molotov, Dandelion and Ryan Case; and live music provided by DJs Thulsa Goon and Talamasca.


Girls Rock Louisville 2017 Album Release Party Guestroom Records No cover  |  11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
