Jason Noble Benefit - This Saturday

The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts hosts the World Premiere of the documentary film "Burn to Shine 4: Louisville" this Saturday. "Burn to Shine" is a documentary series that showcases various city's local musical talent performing in buildings that are slated to be torn down. The Louisville edition details Lucky Pineapple's William Benton quest to preserve one of Clarksville's strangest houses. The film includes performances by Will Oldham, Parlour, Shipping News, Ultra Pulverize, Lucky Pineapple, and many more.

The event, which will be at the Kentucky Center's Bomhard Theatre, will also feature LIVE performances by Bonnie "Prince" Billy and the Cairo Gang, Liberation Prophecy, and Rachel Grimes (of the Rachels).

If that wasn't enough, proceeds from this event will benefit Jason Noble who is fighting cancer. Those who don't know Jason from his many Louisville indie bands (The Rachels, Rodan, Shipping News) may recognize him from Ear X-tacy. Jason doesn't have health insurance and undoubtedly would love to see you out there on Saturday!

Tickets are only $20 which is the cheapest you will ever pay for a movie world premiere / musical performance / benefit show at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are general admission and still available.
