Straight A’s will make their Louisville debut with an all ages show this Saturday, August 9th at Skull Alley. Since forming in early April of 2008, Straight A’s have developed a distinctive sound that is simultaneously more straightforward and yet more offbeat than anything in it’s members’ collective résumés. The new band includes Nathan Smallwood (Red Sun) on bass, Duncan Cherry (Head Above Water) on guitar, Andrew Padon (Kangaroo) on vocals and Sean Roberts (The Ever Constant Sea) on drum duties. The show is headlined by the energetic Chicago-based post-rock outfit Bear Claw, and featuring locals Plows and Fork in Socket.
Doors at 7:30 P.M. with music shortly after. Cover is $5.
