  • First year of Trump: The power of art, wielded against Trump, inequality
    ‘We all need to be activists now’ Wayne Ferguson, the ceramicist, is not a complete stranger to liberal, Democratic political art, having spent the late ‘60s to mid-’80s reflecting the turmoil of the time in his art. Donald Trump has pushed him back into it: “Right now I feel called to concentrate more on politics, but still create environmental statements regularly. Regarding his “Trump Shot Glasses” series, he said he plans “on making one for ... read more

  • First year of Trump: Bevin’s election trumped other protest in local music
    Governor a more direct threat to us than Trump? “When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Kentucky, because everything there happens 20 years after it happens anywhere else,” opined Mark Twain, the American humorist known for having dropped the original diss track. But Kentucky recently found itself ahead of the rest of the country in one respect, however — embracing the rise of new populism. That new populism came to ... read more

  • Thorns & Roses: The Worst, Best and Most Absurd
    Why not chastity belts?  |  Thorn The state Senate Education Committee moved forward SB 71, which would require students be taught abstinence and monogamy in sex-education classes. Sen. Julie Raque Adams, a Louisville Republican and the only woman at the hearing, voted no, while the measure passed on male votes. The bill says abstinence outside of marriage is “the expected standard for all school-age children” and “the only certain way to avoid out-of-wedlock pregnancy, sexually ... read more

  • Paducah passes LGBTQ
 Fairness ordinance
    Paducahns were jubilant, in tears, cheering the city’s historic passage of a LGBTQ Fairness Ordinance earlier this month. It made the “Quilt City” of about 25,000 residents the ninth Kentucky community — and only Western Kentucky city — to update its civil rights law to include LGBTQ people. Many thought they’d never see the day. It’s a sentiment I hear repeatedly as I work across Kentucky. “I don’t think this conversation has been had at ... read more

  • Bully gets personal on Losing, their latest record
    As the story goes, Bully’s second LP, Losing, was written in a quick, three-month spurt. Those three months just happen to be around late 2016 when it seemed all the world was tuned in to the movements and politics happening within the United States. Alicia Bognanno found herself filtering those events into her new songs, which also had a deep stake in her personal life. LEO: The LP Losing sounds, musically, like a record that ... read more

  • Three more concerts to catch this week
    The Avett Brothers Louisville Palace  | Thursday, Jan. 18-20 An Americana powerhouse formed by brothers Scott and Seth Avett, the band has been pumping out records since the early 2000s, first as a raw, bluegrass-leaning project, and later as a smooth, radio-friendly, meticulous folk project.

  • Mambo kings meet the Louisville pops
    Richard DeLaney was 10 years old when he heard the pulsing rhythms of a tune called “Moliendo Café” on a radio station in his hometown, Lima, Peru. It’s a Venezuelan song about the frustrated, romantic plight of a coffee grinder. But the version that became a hit in Peru had been recorded by a Cuban singer named Xiomar Alfaro. “Moliendo Café” has been recorded more than 200 times over the last 60 years. At one ... read more

  • Eiderdown goes back to its roots, remains a delight
    When I hear news that a restaurant has decided to make big changes, I worry. Over the years we’ve seen more than a few popular establishments decide to reinvent themselves in some significant way. Remember them? Nope, me either. That’s because changing courses in the middle of the stream too often begins a sad slide downward into the place where memories go to die. So I fretted a bit, just about this time last year, ... read more
