A THRILL in the VILLE : LOVE JONES vs. EVERYBODY
A band battle to benefit The St. Jude Transitional Housing Program and performing musicians
The stakes could not be higher. While billionaires rocket to the moon, musicians and mutual aid efforts are facing depleted resources of money and fun. Love Jones and Everybody will not let 2021 go out without a night to revel in the rapture of feeling good and helping others.
On December 28 2021 the newly refurbished Headliners Music Hall will host a band battle between the internationally infamous Louisville Kings of Lounge and Pop Love Jones and “Everybody”, a one-night-only Louisville music entourage anchored by bassist Jimmy Brown & drummer Ray Rizzo featuring Louisville luminaries Jimi V., Sherry Edwards, Sheryl Rouse, Kimmet Cantwell, Tyrone Cotton, Jeanette Kays, Pat Lentz, Jyn Yates, Brett Holzclaw, Joe Hanna, and more tba.
The evening will begin with the bands performing a set of music of their choosing, followed by a series of song challenges which will be judged by audience participation and a panel of judges that will include John Timmons (ear x-tacy owner and WFPK DJ), Laura Shine (WFPK DJ), Skinny J (LRS102 DJ) and Jeffrey Lee Puckett (music writer).
A Thrill In The Ville is a free show for anyone with proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test. A suggested donation of $25 is appreciated, but attendees are encouraged to give what they can. All proceeds from the evening and will go to the performers and the St. Jude Transitional Housing Program in Louisville.
A Thrill In The Ville will be livestreamed by LRS102, the Louisville internet rock radio station founded in the spirit of the WLRS 102, the formative Louisville radio station that broadcast from 1964 until the early 2000’s. Back in the day, WLRS 102 FM hosted live broadcasts and produced a series of “homemade albums” featuring Louisville bands. www.lrs102.com
Love Jones formed in Louisville in 1990 and moved to Los Angeles in 1992, blazing a trail for what came to be known as the “cocktail nation”, epitomized by the film Swingers in which the band’s influence is evidenced by their song “Paid for Lovin’” Not a band to pigeonhole, Love Jones’ records delve into funk, 70’s soul, pop, and tropicana. They have performed on The Conan O’Brien Show and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. www.love-jones.com
