Brian Barbee and company have kept the crash crunch and sneer of Dinosaur Jr. and Nirvana alive and kicking in Louisville for over 15 years. Their newest album is due out in this Spring so expect some new songs mixed with other songs you’ve probably never heard.

10:00 Michael Arthur draws “The Barber and The Farmer” by Ethan Lipton
Known to many New Yorkers as the archival artist for Joe’s Pub, Michael Arthur has toured extensively as a member of the Brooklyn folk-rock art collective Balthrop, Alabama, projecting his live drawings of their story/songs as they play in concert. Michael’s work has been featured in The New York Times, on line at Vanity Fair, The Sondheim Review, Brooklyn Vegan, Music Is Art and numerous artist websites. Michael got his Ph.D in Theatre History and Criticism from the Department of Theatre and Dance at The University of Texas in Austin where he was the research assistant to noted theatre historian, Oscar G. Brockett.
Michael’s contribution to Spring Motherlodge is perhaps one of the most provocative and unique productions we have had the pleasure to stage. Using apparatus to project his drawing, Michael will illustrate “The Barber and The Farmer”, a play written for computer by NYC playwright/musician Ethan Lipton.
Michael’s artwork is featured in “Galahad”, the new video by Josh Ritter…
11:00pm The Three-Fifty Duo
Threefifty Duo has been described as a “classical guitar duo with a rock edge,” as musicians Brett Parnell and Geremy Schulick seamlessly weave their contemporary rock sensibilities into the rich fabric of classical guitar. After years of writing and performing together and with a second album under Threefifty’s belt, the duo’s stylistic tendencies have further expanded, with genre blurred by an intensely personal sound that is rhythmic, infectious, engaging, and at once both new and accessible.
11:30 Stand! Holy Diver
The Classic Album experiment for Spring Motherlodge is one of the most ambitious ones yet – a concert of the music of two albums put together to form a loose unpredictable dialogue. Ronnie James Dio’s Holy Diver was the quintessential 80′s metal album for those with sympathies for the dark side. On the flip, Sly and The Family Stone’s “Stand!” album set off a cultural revolution of social, racial, and musical dimensions that is still reverberating. The concert will be curated by a group of Louisville music makers including Matteo Barnett, Ray Rizzo, J.D. Green, Brian Henry Shreck, Chris “Roadie” Rodahaffer, Jake Reber, and many more.
