@ American Turners (3125 River Road, Louisville
SEPTEMBER 28-30, 2012
SEPTEMBER 28-30, 2012
Now, a direct message...
"You read it right, folks! The time is yet again upon us. Cropped Out's annual extravaganza is back for 2012. This Fall (September 28th-29th), we will be taking over the American Turners Club -- our home for year one, as a few (literally, a few) of you might remember. Last year at the Crummy Den was not only a blast but also a milestone for us as an organization. However, as fun as it was watching Scratch Acid play in a crowded warehouse shortly after cops accosted them at gunpoint, having mistaken them as armed robbers, we decided it was time to take our festival back to more "welcoming" grounds of operation.
As always, we've carefully chosen a solid stash of local, national, and international performing artists to spotlight in our hometown of Louisville, KY. There will also be a familiar face or two from festivals past, along with the usual tricks up our sleeve.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY
Our third year kicks off at over 30 bands spread across 3 days (two main days with an unforgettable closing party at on Sunday, September 30). A short list of attractions lined up for Friday and Saturday include the proto-doo-wop sass of Chain & The Gang led by DC legend Ian Svenonius (The Make-Up/Nation of Ulysses), a very rare performance from elusive Texan blues/folk outsider Jandek, the silky lo-fi New Wave croon of Tampa, Florida's Merchandise (featuring members of the late great Cult Ritual), the bitingly sour, self-deprecrating social stabs of "World's Funnyman" Neil Hamburger, live music by David Liebe Hart of Adult Swim's "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job," and as always, plenty of organically grown, freshly picked, fairly traded locals like Twin Sister Radio, Gangly Youth, and Kark, just to name a few...
Cropped Out 2012's closing party will celebrate the work of legendary guitarist and Louisville native David Pajo with a very special performance by Papa M at Workhouse Ballroom (aka "The Cave"). Opening the evening's event will be Brooklyn-based composer and lutenist Jozef Van Wissem (who most recently gained attention for his collaborative work with filmmaker Jim Jarmusch) and one of our very favorite songwriters around, Lexington, KY's James Jackson Toth, known to many as Wooden Wand.
Tickets are limited and may not be combined with Friday/Saturday passes!"
