Visual artist, experimental guitarist, and Louisville Experimental Festival founder Douglas Lucas will be performing at Betty’s Grill on Friday, January 2nd. He’s in town to open a solo art show at Fort Houston for Saturday’s Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston. I highly recommend both the Friday performance and the Saturday gallery show. Douglas appeared on a couple Theatre Intangible podcasts — this artist showcase and this live improv.

The Friday Betty’s show also features Lauri McNamara, Chris Davis, and David Russell for, as the Facebook event page states, “a night of ukulele songs and improvisation from at least three cracked eggs.”

Here’s footage from 2012 of Douglas performing as Mu at Noa Noa house:

There’s a great rock lineup at Betty’s Bar & Grill tonight featuring Athens, Georgia band Shade, the new project of Bird Names‘ Phelan La Velle. Check out the artist showcase I did with Bird Names here.

The lineup also features Sad Baxter, Bad Friend, and my new favorite local band Sudonistas. I’m liking what I hear on the Sad Baxter Bandcamp. The show on the whole is going to have a very distinctive 90s vibe. Listen to the streams below to see if it’s your thing.
