ATTN Anyone who goes to shows at the Chestnut House and wants to see this place keep going.
We have gotten into some trouble with the cops recently about the noise. We are going to have to sound proof both front rooms asap.
If you enjoy shows going on please consider making a donation so that we are able to afford sound proofing material.
Since we charge at the door and to help with not getting in trouble with sound we may be forced to get a commercial license, if so that will also cost us a decent chunk of money to make happen.
We appreciate any help anyone can give. If you are able to make a donation please send it through paypal to Alexandrarhema@gmail.com
Also we have two new house rules that EVERYONE (no exceptions) are required to follow if they want to attend any shows at the house.
Absolutely no drinking/alcohol is allowed in or outside of the show.
If you come to a show here you MUST stay inside the yard (past the black gate) or inside the show at all times. We have a huge backyard and a back porch, no reason to ever hangout out front of the house.
Thank you for reading and helping! We appreciate it so much!
“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.

Vaderbomb is pumped for the May 18th show with Tragedy and Xerxes at the Chestnut House – and are ready to put their money where their masked mouths are.
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.
