This year, Louisville seems to be off the hook insofar as cover shows. Where we’ve had tons of punk/hardcore/whatever cover bands and shows the past few years, it’s kind of slim this year in comparison. But that sure doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything to do! Here’s a quick rundown of what you can find this weekend:
Friday, Oct. 30th:
Uncle Pleasant’s – 9pm, $5, 18+ – Blade Of The Ripper (last show!), The Revenants, Lords, Buffalo Bill
Zanzabar – 9pm, $7, 21+ – Wax Fang, The Invaders. Brought to you by Buzzgrinder.
Lisa’s Oak St. – $5?, 10pm, 21+ – The Vibrolas, The Revenge Of Ricky Williams
Saturday, Oct. 31st:
The Palace – 7pm, $33-43. Seriously? – Monsters Of Folk (Jim from My Morning Jacket & other guys like Connor Oberst)

Sit on your butt and recover from the candy and/or booze from Saturday… and get ready for the Toasters/Kodiaks show at Skull Alley on Monday, the 2nd ($10).
