• The Pass Record Release Party at Headliners on Fri., Nov. 2
The album is titled “Melt,” and it’s promised to be a fun sound with a more serious tone than in the past. You can get a copy in advance if you show up to the 18-and-over show on Friday, and there are a bevy of reasons to be in attendance besides witnessing the fun rock sounds of the Pass.
Well, The Pass has some awesome support from two outstanding local acts in The Deloreans, and Skyscraper Stereo. I must express my delight in seeing a multi-genre bill as everything from rock to hip-hop is represented.
The Deloreans are one of Louisville’s most well regarded rock acts. They possess as much flavor as they do talent, and if you listen to their jam “Buffalo.” you’ll realize this is a band has established their own niche in the scene. Harmonies, killer drums, crunchy guitars and witty lyricism will lead this band to a prolonged future in the scene.
Skyscraper Stereo is Louisville’s hottest hip-hop act, alongside Jalin Roze, and is a blast to see live.
The multi-rapper group is a hybrid of street rap and indie hip-hop with some pretty fresh sample usage.
Overall the two openers will get this party started right for The Pass, who will surely conquer their night in the spotlight.
This is the weekend’s top musical event and will be one heck of a party.
I encourage you to break the spell of normalcy and head down to Headliners and see some of this dear city’s most unique and talented local acts.
Show starts around nine, doors at 8 p.m.. $10
Headliners is at 1386 Lexington Rd., on the edge of the Highlands.
• The Roast of Obama and Mittens at The Bard’s Town.
Are you sick of Romney’s lies about Jeep jobs being sent to China? Can’t stand Obamacare ads?
Are you lethargic and believe in the conspiracy that both candidates are in a malicious effort to take full advantage of the American populous and ruin their everyday lives?
There is an event for you this weekend because The Bard’s Town is hosting a comedic event of electoral proportions.
“The Roast of Obama and Romney” is happening on Friday, and it will surely make a full mockery of our candidates. There will also be some very special guests as the angry propagator Rush Limbaugh, the dead and buried Osama bin Laden and the dim-witty Sarah Palin are all set to appear and shed some light onto this year’s candidates.
Come have a drink, a laugh, and a jolly good time for the price of $10. Show kicks off at 10 p.m.
The Bard’s Town is at 1801 Bardstown Rd. in the Highlands.
