No Country’s Guide to Forecastle 2018: 10 Can’t Miss Friday Performers

Forecastle18Fri-620

This weekend, July 13-15, marks the return of Louisville’s annual Forecastle Festival, one of our favorite regional musical events. From its humble beginnings in 2002, Forecastle has grown to become a national festival fixture, drawing tens of thousands of attendees each year to the picturesque downtown Waterfront Park, for three days of music, art, activism, and, of course, Kentucky bourbon. Boasting yet another impressive lineup, this year’s installment, an easy drive for Middle Tennessee residents and a no-brainer for Kentuckians, is one of our most-highly anticipated events of the season, and, per usual, we want to help you prepare with daily rundowns of our can’t-miss acts. Head here for day tickets or weekend passes if you still need ’em, and check out our 10 most-anticipated Friday Forecastle performances below!

REVIEW: Courtney Barnett + Kurt Vile w/ Jen Cloher | 11.9.17 @ The Ryman [PHOTOS]

Courtney Barnett + Kurt Vile
w/ Jen Cloher

The Ryman Auditorium; Nashville, TN
Nov. 9, 2017

Review by Matt Hall. Photos by Mary-Beth Blankenship.

The idea of Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett teaming up for a collaborative album came as a bit of a surprise at first, but it didn’t take too much thought to realize that the two are perfectly paired to pull off such a feat.  Their recently released record Lotta Sea Lice hasn’t garnered the critical acclaim of their solo albums, but it’s a fantastic record that really grows on the listener with repeat listens, and it, maybe more importantly, provides an awesome vehicle for the two talented artists to tour together.  We caught their recent show at The Ryman Auditorium on Nov. 9 for the Nashville stop on that tour, along with opener Jen Cloher, and it lived up to everything that you would imagine.
