Kentucky (Area) Shows

With Bonnaroo behind me and Desdemona looming large, I’m fairly sure that this will be the best summer of my life. Sure, I might wind up poor by the time it’s over, but it’ll be worth it. Here are some concerts for the Kentucky folk out there to consider attending. Links to the venues are at the bottom. Ones I’m (planning on) attending are marked with *
