Day two is today. Come on down to Nelligan Hall from 2pm-11pm and do some stage dives.
Greetings, all! The time is now upon us! One last update from the Cropped Out camp, leading into this weekend’s festivities.
Just wanted to mention that advance tickets will only be available through the morning of Friday, 9/28, so if you were planning on saving a couple extra dollars by buying early, get on it! You only have a couple days left.
Physical tickets are still available from our friends at Astro Black Records and Please & Thank You in Louisville, as well as will-call tickets on our website HERE. As soon as doors open on Friday afternoon, the price will return to the regular rate of $25 a day or $45 in combination with the purchase of a Saturday.
Sunday tickets are also still available online and at the door day-of-show for our closing party at The Workhouse Ballroom (which we should probably mention is at 1312 Lexington Road) with Papa M, Wooden Wand, and Jozef Van Wissem. This is a very special event with limited seating, so please buy your tickets in advance if possible to prevent a line out the door into the traffic of Lexington Road.
We’d also like to take this time for a couple other quick announcements. One (and hopefully the only) change in scheduling is that Dahm of The Phantom Family Halo has come down with some pretty lousy illness and will not be able to make the trek down from New York City this year. Though on a positive note, while he takes his time to rest, 90’s power-violence pioneers Suppression (from Roanoke, VA) and our very close friends Fat History Month (from Boston, MA//on Sophomore Lounge) will be sliding into the line-up instead.
Cropped Out still has tickets available for all three days on TicketFly. Make sure to grab some now before next weekend’s festival gets started. There are tickets for Friday, Saturday, or a combo ticket package for both days. If you’re looking to get into the Sunday party, keep your ears open around the first two days for info (gotta keep it secret, keep it safe).
Cropped Out 2012‘s lineup has been announced (last week, whoops). This year, the festival will be moving back to it’s 1st year location at American Turner’s on River Road, and the dates will be September 28th-30th. Ticketing information and full lineup will be coming soon, but here’s what to expect right now:
FRIDAY + SATURDAY: Our third year kicks off at over 30 bands spread across 3 days (two main days with an unforgettable closing party on Sunday, 9/30). A short list of attractions lined up for Friday (9/28) and Saturday (9/29) include the proto-doo-wop sass of Chain & The Gang led by DC legend Ian Svenonius (The Make-Up/Nation of Ulysses), a very rare performance from elusive Texan blues/folk outsider Jandek, the silky lo-fi New Wave croon of Tampa, Florida’s Merchandise (ft. members of the late great Cult Ritual), the bitingly sour, self-deprecrating social stabs of “World’s Funnyman” Neil Hamburger, live music by David Liebe Hart of Adult Swim’s “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job,” and as always, plenty of organically grown, freshly picked, fairly traded locals like Twin Sister Radio, Gangly Youth, and Kark, just to name a few…
Cropped Out 2011 is coming up this weekend, make sure you don’t miss it. The venue has been updated from last year’s event, and it’s at the corner of E Main St & N Campbell St (click for Google Map link). Advance tickets are still for sale today and tomorrow for cheap online at Ticketfly, and probably will be available up until doors open. You can get in on Friday for as little as $20 starting at 5pm, Saturday tickets are currently $35 and Sunday $20. The full lineup is below.
Cropped Out is a locally and independently developed music festival set to take place in Louisville, KY. The fest is designed to highlight the creative efforts of Louisville natives, friends, family, and fellow thinkers from Nashville to Chicago to Brooklyn and beyond.
Since the earliest baby breaths of punk from within the walls of the now-defunct Louisville School of Art in the late ‘70s, from local proto-punks like No Fun, Babylon Dance Band, and the recently re-issued Endtables, it is no secret that Louisville’s cultural contributions have long served as a significant influence on national underground art and music scenes. One must not forget, we are still a force with which to be reckoned. This festival, specifically, intends to celebrate a renewed sense of enthusiasm about Kentucky’s cultural offerings by pairing a few of our favorites from the Derby City with similarly exciting examples handpicked from around the country.
