Ben Thornewill, Tommy Siegel and Jesse Kristin are Jukebox The Ghost, a band that’s been together for almost a decade now. Ben’s piano playing dominates their sound most of the time except when they can’t fit a grand piano into our small studio. In this case, Tommy took the lead on his guitar for their in-studio performance before hitting the stage at May’s Waterfront Wednesday.
The South African rock band Civil Twilight was here recently for our May Waterfront Wednesday show. They performed a couple of stripped down versions of songs for us that also appear on their new album Story of An Immigrant.
John Timmons got on the phone with TV on the Radio’s Jaleel Bunton (a former Louisvillian!) in anticipation of their show tonight at the Mercury Ballroom. Here is their conversation and Jaleel’s guest DJ set:
Kittens today for The Paws Report at 3:30 pm:
Keebler is a black-and-white tuxedo kitten who is almost four months old. Keebler is outgoing and loves to play with other cats, toys and human visitors. He was one of five kittens from the same litter who was brought to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owner had an unexpected litter. The Doctor is an orange female tabby who came to KHS with her four siblings and mother from Louisville Metro Animal Services. At KHS, the family spent time in foster care until the kittens were weaned and old enough to be adopted. Now The Doctor is ready for her own forever home. Keebler and The Doctor are available for adoption at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in south Louisville. They are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Learn more about all our pets at www.kyhumane.org or by calling 502-366-3355.
It’s officially kitten season: Let’s spay/neuter all those kitties! And we are in a real need of foster families to provide temporary homes for kittens, puppies, cats and dogs.
Also, two 4 week old kittens came to KHS on Sunday after they were found thrown from a car in Nelson County. The finder also saw 6 dead kittens on the road. The two surviving kittens were are now recovering at KHS and doing very well. Their names are Julep and Rye, as they were found on the Bourbon Trail very close to Heaven Hill Heritage Center. Horrific. Here is more info: http://www.whas11.com/story/news/local/community/2015/05/19/julep-and-rye-kittens-humane-society/27599085/

On The Paws Report today at 3:30:
Meet Snoopy, a gorgeous, happy, silly two-year-old English Shepherd who always has a smile on his face. Snoopy is one smart cookie: he knows many basic commands, including sit, stay and lay down, and he walks great on a leash. Want to teach him tricks? Snoopy would be happy to learn! He also appears to be house trained. Snoopy does walk with a small limp, as a few months ago he had what is believed to be a Fibrocartilaginous Embolism (FCE). This is a blocked blood vessel in the spine, which can lead to immediate paralysis; some dogs recover fully, and some never recover. But Snoopy was a lucky dog: He regained his ability to walk, though he now has a slight limp. The good news is that veterinarians say FCE is not painful. He walks a little differently, but that’s just fine to Snoopy. We think it just makes him even more adorable! Snoopy would love to chase cats, so we recommend his new home not have any kitties. He can also be dog reactive, meaning he likes to bark and carry on around new dogs. So if you have a dog at home, we strongly recommend you bring your dog in to meet Snoopy before you make an adoption decision. Ready to meet Snoopy and see if he will be the next love of your life? Visit him at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Learn about all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.
Waggin’ Trail is this Saturday in Waterfront Park! We’ll have beer, wine, adoptable pets, lots of pet products, rescues, contests, including Best (dog) Kisser and even Animal Arts (dogs will create paintings).
