Over the past decade or so Louisville has really upped there game concert wise. Making it a “it” place for bands on tour to stop and play.
This summer brings numerous amounts of bands which vary in genre, venue, and prices. I’m here to give you a few concerts I think are a must see for the summer!
- Glass Animals at Iroquois Amphitheater.
Glass Animals is a popular indie rock band from Oxford, England. They play feel good music that makes you want to get on your feet and dance.
I saw them last year at Forecastle and they blew me away. Beautiful vocals from the bands lead singer Dave Barley accompanied by all of the alluring sounds from the rest of the group.
Glass Animals will be playing at Iroquois Amphitheater on June 12 at 8pm! Tickets are ranging from $30-$60 so go and get yours now before it’s too late!
2. Blackbear at The Mercury Ballroom.
Matthew Tyler Musto better known as Blackbear is an American hip-hop artist, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Basically the jack of all trade in the music field.
Although he’s known as a hip hop artist a lot of his music doesn’t have your average “hip-hop” feel.
He will be at Mercury Ballroom on June 17th at 8pm! GA prices for this concert are $42–but trust me it will be $42 well spent!
3. Future Islands at The Mercury Ballroom.
Future Islands is a synthpop (short for synthesizer pop) band. For those of you who don’t know what that it is, it is just another form of techno pop music.
This band puts on one hell of a show. Their lead singer Gerrit Welmers is praised for the theatric element he brings to the stage.
Trust me, you can’t not dance when you hear their groovy tunes.
They will be here June 16 at the Mercury Ballroom, doors open at 6pm and they come on at 7pm! General admission prices are only $21, go out and get yours now!
