Local Music On New Year’s Eve

Houndmouth  |  Old Forester’s Paristown Hall  |  724 Brent St.  
kentuckyperformingarts.org  |  $30-$100  |  8:30 p.m.
Houndmouth, the melodic Southern Indiana indie rock band with Americana leanings, established itself as one of the area’s most nationally-recognized acts over the past decade. Their latest album, Golden Age, fully dives into the sort of experimental pop they’ve always played with. Bendigo Fletcher and Curiokey Club open.  

GRLwood  |  Headliners Music Hall  |  1386 Lexington Road  |  headlinerslouisville.com 
$10  |  10 p.m.
The scream-pop duo GRLwood has become one of Louisville’s most important bands, with a punk-infused, yet idiosyncratic sound that matches the push-pull of raw power and quiet tension with cutting and clever lyrics. And this is a stacked lineup, with Belushi Speedball, Lung and The Jesse Lees also performing.

Mike Bandanna  |  Kaiju  |  1004 Oak St.  |  kaijubar.com  |  $5  |  9 p.m.
Louisville has an incredible hip-hop scene that continues to grow. Mike Bandanna — who released the excellent record Pain over Pleasure in 2019 — hosts this event, and the night will feature performances by Yons + Space Campaign, Boss Marino Fredd C and DS10T. 

Zach Longoria Project  |  Zanzabar  |  2100 S. Preston St.  |  zanzabarlouisville.com 
9 p.m.  |  $25
If you’re looking for a live-band dance party, the Louisville soul/funk/indie hybrid Zach Longoria Project is probably your best bet. Sweet G & The Shine open.
