Ben Sollee’s opening for My Morning Jacket this Sunday, but he’s got his own show coming up soon. In May, Ben’s playing a show at the Kentucky Theater to support the Broke Spoke Community Bike Shop.

Just a friendly reminder that you can catch the Drive-By Truckers doing a FREE instore performance at CD Central today at 4pm. It’s not full band — I think it’s Patterson and whoever plays accordion — but I’m sure the place will be packed any way.

Kool Keith coming to Lexington this Tuesday

The Kool Keith show at Cosmic Charlies was somewhat last minute, but really that’s half the fun. Two weeks ago I had no idea that Kool Keith might be in the area, but soon we’ll be sharing the same air. Mark your calendars and get excited.

Drive-By Truckers to play free instore at CD Central

When I heard that the Drive-By Truckers were playing back-to-back nights at Buster’s in Lexington, I immediately told my boss at the record store to try to get them for an instore. We just got word back that they’ll be swinging by sometime on Saturday to play a free show at CD Central. No word yet on the time, but we’ll figure that out soon enough.

Worried the record store might fill up before you can get there? They still have tickets to both DBT shows at CD Central.
