All the way from Portland, Oregon comes The How Long Jug Band to the birthplace of Jug Band music which is our home town of Louisville, KY. Here for the National Jug Band Jubilee, they stopped by the FPK studio with the festival’s founder Heather Leoncini and played a song for us.
Before their sold-out show with The National last Friday, Frightened Rabbit gave a packed Live Lunch crowd quite a show as well.

Burning Days is the new album by Sons of Fathers. The Texas-based band brought their great harmonies and even a new song to debut for us.
British songstress Laura Marling performed two songs live for us while here for August’s WFPK Waterfront Wednesday. We talked about her new record, Once I Was An Eagle, her background and recent move to the States.
Fitz and the Tantrums graciously stopped by our performance studio to play for WFPK members before opening for Bruno Mars at the Yum! Center. It was a treat to hear the songs stripped down to their original form. The band also played an acoustic version of 6am for the very first time!
John and Ian from Deer Tick recently dropped by to hang with Kyle Meredith during a promo tour. They’ve got a new record, Negativity, and will be playing at Headliners Nov. 4. For a preview, we’ve got them playing a couple of the tracks from the record and giving us the scoop on how it came about.
We roped KS Rhoads into the performance studio for Live Lunch while he was passing through, and he made a distinct impression on the audience with his wide array of musical talents and expertly-crafted songs.
Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Randall Bramblett was in the studio before playing our Waterfront Wednesday show last month. His new album is called The Bright Spots.
