Method Man and Redman and put on an electrifying, sold out, show at Diamonds in Louisville on over the weekend. Fans were literally packed wall-to-wall to hear the duo perform and you could hardly move. Who knew the Wu was strong in Louisville?
I can identify the exact moment that I became a true fan of Louisville’s own My Morning Jacket. At this point, I had heard a few of their songs, thought they were talented, but it wasn’t until I saw them perform live that I became sold.
This concert was that time.
The concert took place at the historical Louisville Palace on May 31, 2011, the same day the My Morning Jacket’s sixth album Circuital was released.
The event was also recorded as part of the American Express Unstaged series. Directed by Todd Haynes, most of the performances, including a surprise guest cover feating Erykah Badu can be found on YouTube.
Well, this has been on repeat on in my ear all day.
I’d heard rumblings about Madisen Ward and the Momma Bear, a mother and son duo from Missouri, and about two weeks ago heard a live version of one of their songs and made a note to check them out.
Then today Madisen Ward and The Momma Bear was added to the (already stellar) Forecastle Festival.
