Motherlodge Performance Series Mar/29 - Apr/05

The first Motherlodge Performance Series starts this Sunday. As I can't beat the words that the mission statement dishes out, I will let it and the festival itenary speak for itself below. 

Motherlodge Mission Statement A live art exchange...

Motherlodge is a diverse programming of theater, music, film, readings, and solo performance aimed at creating new possibilities for how artists, entertainers, and educators can collaborate in local communities. Our goal is to provide the means for artists to have as much influence over the programs in which their works are presented, and to inspire new paths of creativity by partnering for events with unexpected venues and organizations. We also solicit content for Motherlodge from a web based community that spans award winning artists and writers, high school students, and retirees. In 2009, through a partnership with, organizers will launch an online network channel and establish Motherlodge Louisville and Motherlodge NYC.

Concert photography Tuesday!!!

Alright, so it's not a thing i've done in the past; nor is it a thing that'll happen every Tuesday...
I do have some photos that didn't make it through the post processing last month and wanted to share them with you.
The Louisville is for Lovers showcases brought 4 shows to the area to celebrate the release in a period of 4 days; it was a whirlwind to say the least. The only show I didn't get to was the Live Lunch show at WFPK and it looks as though I found some YouTube links so sit back and look at some photos and watch some videos and reminisce about the great comp (that's still available for purchase) that is Louisville is for Lovers!

Louisville is for Lovers "Acoustic Showcase" at the Lounge 02-11

Louisville is for Lovers "Ear X-tacy In Store" 02-13

Louisville is for Lovers "Main Showcase" at Skull Alley 02-14
