Wednesday Cancelled This Week

That’s right. The headline at the WFPL site was “Waterfront Wednesday Canceled”. Seriously, this flooding is getting past the fun stage. Dire weather predictions have moved WFPK-FM to cancel this week’s scheduled Waterfront Wednesday show on the Waterfront with Sarah Jaffe and Walk the Moon. It’s the first time in the event’s 10-year history that one of the concerts has been canceled. There’s no Chow Wagon opening up down there either, as it’s moving to Witherspoon Street. The Belle of Louisville has canceled activities through May 2. The Hole-in-One contest at the Water Tower has moved to Seneca. The Mayor…

Royal Wedding at the Frazier Museum

It’s Royal Wedding week! Everyone excited? Yeah … I know how you feel. Not only have I been failing in my goal to become obsessed with the Royal Wedding, but lately I’ve been failing at becoming obsessed with my own wedding. It’s not that I’m not excited. I’ve just had way too much other stuff going on lately. In a few weeks, I’ll be heading to Europe for a music tour, and my life has been spent on the details of that trip. But seeing as my first stop on the tour is Manchester, England, I figure I should try…

Farmer’s Liability Points Keep Piling Up

This is the least intriguing primary campaign in recent Kentucky political history. And the only race getting any media attention is the GOP primary for Governor, where David Williams and Richie Farmer hold wide leads in every poll. Phil Moffett, featured Sunday in the C-J, is not getting the kind of boost he thought he would from the Tea Party, and why Bobbi Holsclaw is running is a mystery, since she’s raised about $22K. Williams may have thought adding Farmer to his ticket would boost his campaign, but Farmer has proven to be a liability, though some Kentucky voters will…

Offense is King at Derby Fest Classic

Basketball purists need not bother with the Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic. There’s not much defense or fundamentals on display, but there’s a whole lot of running, gunning, dunking and laughing going on in the annual all-star game, conducted last night at the Yum Center to the delight of 10,019 fans. And talent, oh, yea. Card recruit Angel Nunez launched a 1st quarter three-pointer that seemed to almost hit the roof. IU-bound Cody Zeller had his way under the basket.  Duece Bello, on his way to Baylor, made some eye-popping moves.  There were good moments for U of L recruits…

Stock Your Easter Basket at the Farmers Markets!

No matter how or why you celebrate this weekend in Spring, it is a time of reflection,renewal and yes…rain. A feast is always a vital ritual of the season as well as the giving of gifts. If you have a notion to create a basket of goodies for yourself, loved ones or company, you may want to visit Bardstown Road in the Highlands. It’s my neighborhood and I’m Kentucky Proud, if you will, about the variety available to our visitors. The venerable Bardstown Road Farmers Market  at Deer Park Presbyterian Church near Speed and the newest addition to the Metro…

Way To Go, Louisville!

Every day more Louisville residents are leaving their car keys at home, strapping on a helmet and pedaling to work, shopping, and other familiar locations. As a result they’re getting healthier and wealthier with every pedal stroke. A perfect time to join them is during May, National Bike to Work Month. May is the perfect time to replace your car with your bike on the way to work, and with gas prices approaching $4 a gallon, you can collect an unexpected pay raise. Bike Louisville is in the process of planning a Bike to Work Day Celebration on Friday, May…

Seeking Somebody to Love Queen

On Saturday, April 30, the Louisville Orchestra will present a concert at the Louisville Palace celebrating the Music of Queen. The show features a vocalist who sounds just like Freddie Mercury (and not like those guys in Wayne’s World). As the LO site puts it: Bridging the gulf between rock n’ roll and classical music, the Louisville Orchestra performs The Music of  Queen at the Louisville Palace. Amplified by a full rock band and delivering a fabulous rendition of Freddie Mercury’s vocals is Las Vegas star BrodyDolyniuk.  Creator Brent Havens guest conducts the ensemble as they capture Queen’s amazing vocal harmonies…
