“After almost 3 years of being a band we have decided to move on. It is a bittersweet feeling for all of us involved. Adam will be moving to California for a great opportunity to further his education, and to continue doing this without him wouldn’t feel right.
A few places/people/bands we’d like to personally thank…The Chestnut House residents, Nick Arone, Brian Cole, LIKE GLUE RECORDS, Another Mistake, Written Off, Vaderbomb, Strange Ways, Mike Stewart and the House of Wax, Out Crowd, Kicked In, Bryan Volz, Josh Raff (sike!), Megan Morgan, Xerxes, all the Indianapolis and Kansas City friends, anyone who ever loved/hated/moshed/partied or whatever with us. It has been real.
Our last two shows will be June 7th at Cahoots with Negative Approach and Black God and a final show in August that is TBA.
Keep supporting Louisville Hardcore. This is still the only life I see fit. Thank you all.”
Moe, Adam, Dustin, Jim, Cam. We will always be Damaged Goods

Tara Jane ONeil & Catherine Irwin
Tara Jane ONeil is returning to Louisville for one very intimate and unique performance with longtime friend and collaborator Catherine Irwin. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Tara Jane ONeil is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, painter, and K Records/Quarterstick recording artist who who has lived and worked in Portland, OR since 2003. She creates both melodic and experimental music, under her own name and with similarly-spirited friends (including but not limited to) Papa M, Mount Eerie, Ida, Mirah, Michael Hurley, Lori Goldston, Jackie-O Motherfucker, and The King Cobra. Tara Jane ONeil was a major player in the days of Louisville’s musical “wonder years,” having not only served time in Rodan, Retsin, The Sonora Pine, and Drinking Woman, but also starring in the Kentucky cult-classic “Half Cocked,” a feature-length film from the mid ’90s which drew further national attention to Louisville’s “indie” under-current. TJO’s career is one rich with history and accomplishment, and we are proud to welcome her back to the bluegrass at the end of this month. Read the rest of this entry »
As of Midnight this morning, Little Heart Records has put up Late One’s full length for pre-order and released the album art and title. It’s going to be called (or is called?) “…Like The Day After A Heavy Rain” and you can plop down some dollars for it at the following URL:
After several months of laying low, Louisville’s Late Ones has emerged with their full length release “…Like The Day After a Heavy Rain.” Twelve new songs of pop-punk and introspective melody (but don’t worry, they still wrote a couple songs about heartbreak). This follow up to 2011’s “nailbiter” 7″ proves that while Late Ones will never get tired of playing the music the grew up and continue to love, they will learn how to bend the rules of pop punk into something of their own – turn the volume up.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Mike Pascal will no longer be a member of Coliseum. For over seven years, Mike has been our bass player and like a younger brother to me. He joined the band in Fall 2004 for our first extended tour and made his recorded debut in Coliseum on the Goddamage EP a few months later, playing every show since then and on every following release. We’ve traveled the world together and had more great times than I can count. While this is difficult at the moment, Mike’s departure from the band is the right thing for him and I know we will all be better for it.
There are certainly times when I’ve considered throwing in the towel and putting an end to Coliseum, but ultimately I remain as inspired and passionate about the band as ever. There are always peaks and valleys and there have been times when I felt like we were fighting a losing battle, but the good has always outweighed the bad. Coliseum played its first show just over eight years ago and I am humbled by all we’ve accomplished, all the people we’ve met, all the places we’ve played, all the bands we’ve toured with and all of the great guys who have been members of the band. I feel incredibly lucky to continue to have Carter as a bandmate and Temporary Residence as our label. We are very excited about the new material we’ve been writing and look forward to recording the fourth Coliseum album this Fall.
We will play our show with Tragedy in Louisville on May 18th with a friend filling in on bass and will take our time finding a new permanent member. Thanks for your continued support, it means the world to us.
