Louisvillians have the rare treat of two really great shows this weekend. Here’s information on both of them:
Saturday, July 31
at SKULL ALLEY
1017 E. Broadway
8 PM, $6, ALL AGES!
Here’s what Mat Herron wrote about the show in this week’s LEO Weekly:
Cerebellum was only around from 1988-1989, but the work of the band’s members outlasts its breakup.Three-quarters of the band went on to form Crain — guitarists Tim Furnish and Joey Mudd, bassist Jon Cook and drummer Will Chatham. The team of Furnish, Cook and Breck Pipes — an apropos furniture store name if ever there was one — now hold court in Parlour, Mudd fronts Midnite Sons, and guitarist Drew Daniel [Drew didn’t actually play guitar, but sang/banged metal objects —ed.], who designed the cover of Cerebellum’s lone cassette, is one half of Baltimore experimental duo Matmos…
This past spring, Noise Pollution, who has taken up the mantle of curating much of Louisville’s older punk music, re-released Cerebellum’s first tape along with five songs — “Begin,” “Guard,” “Hurt,” “Brighten” and “Crawl Out of the Water” — recorded at Trip Barriger’s Studio K.
The special edition LP came out just in time for the band’s reunion show back in May to raise money for Jason Noble, but their proper release happens July 31 at Skull Alley (1017 E. Broadway, www.skullalley.net). The all ages show is $6. Trophy Wives and The Teeth open.
CEREBELLUM’s performance in May was awesome, don’t miss this one!
Also, Sunday night brings the following show to a new space (in the same building as St. Francis High School):
Sunday, August 1st
at LAND OF TOMORROW
233 W. Broadway
7:30 PM, $7-10 suggested donation
This show was curated in part by Michael over at the Decibel Tolls, so it’s bound to be great. Don’t miss it!
