JULIE OF THE WOLVES formed in September of 2011 and includes members of Madame Machine, The Frequent Sea, Second Story Man, Venus Trap, Minnow, and The Red Nails. They’re one of the most exciting new bands in Louisville at the moment, and if you haven’t seen them play yet (with other great bands such as Old Baby, Freakwater, Black God, and the Hal Dolls), now’s your chance! This show is also a fundraiser to help them finance their new record!
OPPOSABLE THUMBS is “part party and part sweated garage rock… Every instrument is as key and in your face; none overtake the order of the chaos being preached. It’s stripped down post-punk that has a almost considerable dance to it. Not dance rock; fuck that. This digs into late 70s/early 80s vibes… This band seems to me to be a perfect culmination of a history of Louisville’s crud rock scene rolled together and spit out. The unhinged destruction of convention still exists pounded through a discipline that keeps the songs together and groovy.” — American Gloam.
