Cory to Guest DJ on WFPK…later

UPDATE: Turns out the broadcast isn’t live.  Cory just finished recording the show and they told him it was gonna air in a day or two.  We will keep you updated.

Cory (that guy from will be guest DJing today on our local NPR, 91.9 WFPK, at noon.  If you have access to Louisville Broadcast media, you should check it out.  This is a pilot program and if today goes over well, many other people in the Louisville music scene are going to be able to start doing Guest DJ spots here as well.  He is only going to be doing a few songs, so be sure to check in right at noon.

And don’t forget that TONIGHT, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down is coming to Louisville’s newest venue (unless you count re-openings) SKULL ALLEY.  The show starts at 7pm with The Instruction.  Tune Yards will go on after and Thao Nguyen with the Get Down Stay Down will end the night (see MP3s from all the bands below).  Hope to see you there. presents the first of hopefully a plentiful series of concerts, the first of which is the amazing Thao Nguyen with the Get Down Stay Down, live at Skull Alley on Monday, July 21st.  As I’ve mentioned before (and thus the reason I’m putting this show on) Thao Nguyen (pronounced “Win”) is one of my favorite artists of the year, having released my top album of January on Kill Rock Stars, We Brave Bee Stings and All to significant praises in the blogosphere & received a 7.7 from Pitchfork in follow-up of 2005’s Like the Linen.  Also, I had the chance to see Thao (review) & her stage presence resmebles that of a cat with a ball of yarn, thrashing about in the cutest of ways.  To match,  Thao has the lyrical beauty and emotion of Cat Power less the aching with the energy of Feist, so if you’ve a warm place in your heart for either of those two, you’re going to absolutely fall in love with Thao.

One of our local favorites, The Instruction, will be opening.  They played a set at our party at the Pour Hous and brought the roof down.  If that isn’t enough, Thao’s tourmates, Tune Yards, will also be playing (if you haven’t heard their stuff, check it out below)!

Tickets are $7 at the door & it’s all-agesShow starts at 7pm and given the number of bands, I wouldn’t be late.  Support us on this one, despite the short notice, and we’ll do what we can to continue bringing incredible talent to this city of ours.
