It’s time for the pen-penultimate Waterfront Wednesday of 2013 and it looks like it could be a wet one. We’re looking at a 30% chance of rain through 7PM and some cloudy skies after that. No reason to stay home, however, with the help of a raincoat and an awesome lineup to get you through the storm.
Starting us off at 6PM: Quiet Hollers
A 3-year-old (Derby eligible) band from right here in Louisville, bringing the alternative scene as well as the down-home sound of the Appalachian hollers.
Here’s a song called “Destitution Road” off their first album:
On deck at 7:30: Randall Bramblett Band
You can’t say it more poetically than he does on his official site:
A jewel of Southern music, Randall Bramblett shines on his latest release, The Bright Spots, due out May 14 on New West Records. Fresh off the inclusion of one of his songs on Bonnie Raitt’s Grammy-winning album Slipstream, he has put together a masterful recording soaked with the soulful feel that has defined his music and that of his Southern contemporaries like Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes. From Howlin’ Wolf to Ray Charles and “dark Motown” influences, sitar samples, gospel strains and even a snippet of water-splashing pygmies, The Bright Spots mixes diverse elements that dovetail into Randall’s finest album yet.
Here’s “Rule the World” off of Bramblett’s new album The Bright Spots:
And finally, at 9PM: Little Green Cars
A good crew of Irishmen, growing from a former band, The Revolts, Little Green Cars have now toured across the UK and the US, including SXSW, Coachella, and will be playing Lollapalooza this year.
Here’s their hit, “Harper Lee” that they sang on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
Rain or not, tonight is obviously a Waterfront Wednesday that you won’t want to miss. In addition to the good times, Vision Louisville will be making an appearance this week and taking ideas for the further improvement of our city.
