Last weekend I was one of three hundred folks that got a ticket to see Bonnie "Prince" Billy with Thomas A. Minor and the Picket Line at Funtown in Jtown. Don't look for a lot of public shows going down at Funtown as I'm sure the venue is limited to when the trailor/stage is in the right place at the right time and the stars in the little valley are aligned.
I managed to get some picures as well as a recording of the evening (thanks to the approval of Thomas A Minor). Sorry about the cicadas, If you weren't sick of them already, you will be after listening to this recording. Due to demand, I wanted to get the BPB set up first and I will get the Thomas A. Minor recording up in the near future. Enjoy!

For those of you that missed the Edgehill Ave. show with Jonathan's Machete last week at Zazoo's, you have another chance to see the best local band from Lexington, KY (check the facts here). Jonathan's Machete will be playing with Pete Dressman and the Soul Unified Nation at Zazoo's in St. Matthews at 10 pm with a nice sweet 5'er at the door! Pete Dressman and the S.U.N. is also a force to be reckoned with from what I hear...
Check out the Johathan's Machete sound that everyone's talking about over at Garageband.com
and this Pete Dressman video from good ol' YouTuber!

The 930 Listening Room is pleased to welcome Gold Jacket Club for a rare performance in an intimate setting. One of Louisville’s favorite sons, Joe Manning, opens.
“Gold Jacket Club formed in a way many Louisville bands often do, as an extension of longtime friendships. Guitarist Jeff Tucker attended Male High School at the same time as drummer Kyle Crabtree, bassist Jason Skaggs and Chad Cutsinger, who plays piano, Rhodes and Hammond organ. When Cutsinger went into the Army, Tucker, Skaggs and Crabtree continued on under the name Eleven Eleven. The three recorded an album for Doghouse Records, and as Tucker puts it, “did a whole lot of driving to Pennsylvania to play for 20 people.” Bassist Beenee Overstreet, drummer Dillon Marshall and guitarist Gary Bell, all of whom played in the band Union, also longtime friends of Tucker’s, round out the club’s lineup.” - Mat Herron, LEO

The 7th Annual Lebowski Fest starts this Friday at the Executive Strike and Spare. If you're going to be there, chances are you also have in your possession the critically acclaimed book, I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: Life, The Big Lebowski and What Have You. (if you don't, shame on you... get your signed copy here.)
We wanted to do an interview with Will Russell, one of the creators of the Lebowski Fest in preparation for this coming Friday. We're about as lazy as the Dude most of the time so we are firing back the same questions asked of some celebrities in the book. Enjoy!
37 Flood: A lot of people say that it took them a few viewings before they really got it. We can only think that wasn't the case with you guys, was it?
Will: I was almost indifferent the first time I saw it. I didnt dislike it but I also didnt love it. After the third viewing is when I began to fall in love and appreciate it in the way I do now.
37 Flood: Who's your favorite character and why?
Will: Walter has the funniest lines. Pilar is also awesome.
37 Flood: If you were a Big Lebowski character, which one would you be?
Will: Walter - I give a shit about the rules.
37 Flood: Do you have a favorite scene? A favorite line?
Will: I adore every scene and ever line. It changes all the time. Currently the Dude screaming in the bathtub when the marmot is tossed in really kills me.
37 Flood: What other movies would you consider yourself a huge fan of?
Will: Pee Wee's Big Adventure, No Country For Old men, Raising Arizona
37 Flood: Why do you think The Big Lebowski has connected so strongly with so many people?
Will: It magically gets better each time you watch it. It's an absolute blast to watch - great music, great characters, great dialogue. Plus the Dude is such a genuinely cool guy.
37 Flood: What is the most 'Dude' thing you've ever done?
Will: Bubble bath with candles
37 Flood: The movie's plot is pretty complicated - if you had to sum up the movie in three sentences or less, how would you do it?
Will: They peed on the Dudes rug. All the Dude ever wanted was his rug back. Fuck it, let's go bowling.
37 Flood: Has what you love about the movie changed over time?
Will: My love grows stronger every time I see it.
37 Flood: If you could ask the Coen brothers one question about The Big Lebowski (and we're sure you've had that chance), what would it be?
Will: I would just freeze and wet myself.
37 Flood: What's your highest bowling score?
37 Flood: What day is this?
Will: i'm sorry, i wasn't listening
Lebowski Fest is July 11th-12th. Get your info here and get your tickets here.

As you have all probably read, Kanye wasn't well received by fans at Bonnaroo who waited nearly 2 hours past his scheduled 2:45am start time and took the stage at 4:25am instead. I won't go into it but you can read all about it here if you need more details.
Ben Sollee also played with the Sparrow Quartet at Bonnaroo and obviously has something to say about Kanye's waiting game. Listen to this open letter to Kanye below.
Ben Sollee - Dear Kanye
