Hello Louisville, I'm going to be in your town this weekend. Where should I be? I'm looking for the darker or more underground part of town. Thank you for your thoughts.

help with a show in Louisville? [15 Aug 2008|04:29pm]

Hey, everyone!

I don't live in Louisville, but I love it there, and will be heading your way in a little less than a month. Which is why I need your help. Myself (Cindy Emch, squeezeboxer for Vagabondage and Rhubarb Whiskey) and my tourmate, Jessica Wilber, aka Waltzing Matilda the One Beer Prophet are going on a storytelling/music/sideshow tour. We are both accordion players, singers,  and storytellers; and will also be performing a few sideshow acts (nothing too extreme, no fire or anything). We are hoping to hit Louisville on September 19. We will play any kind of venue, really - cafe, bar, bookstore, whatever - and would of course be down with any local talents either opening for us or headlining, whichever works out better. (We also need help finding a place to stay that night.)

Any information you can give me about venues that might be appropriate, or who to get in contact with to help me book a show, would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you need any further information (i.e. photographs, sound files, writing samples, press) about myself or Jess, just let me know.

Thanks so much.

Like to shop? [06 Feb 2008|01:07pm]

Hey everyone!

My name is Alexandra Olteanu, the PR intern at the Canadian fashion label. Since we are conducting extensive in-house research on the best places to shop for edgy clothes, I thought our community is one of the best places to ask about this. Thought you guys would enjoy participating in our project. All you have to do is tell us what are your favorite places to shop in your city and/or around the world!

Looking forward to hear about your likes.

Alexandra Olteanu

Hi everyone. I am looking for a reputable, clean place in Louisville that does tattoos/piercings. Do you have any place you recommend that you've been to before that does a good job? If so, I'd like your recommendations!

Thank you!

Come one, come all (preferably all) to the kyshakespeare community. This is for the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival, the oldest independently-operated free Shakespeare festival.

They need all the support they can get. This may be the last year of free Shakespeare due to the lack of sufficient funding. They will be producing Macbeth this year, and the Globe Players, the teenage acting troupe, will be presenting The Comedy of Errors.
