Small Batch Vibes [#TheBackbeat no.4]

DeGeorge Bros. Guitars is tucked into a small row of shops in Crescent Hill, on the corner of Frankfort and Stilz Avenues. Combining the vintage wood floors, stone hearth, and the fact that the shop is owned and operated by two brothers, Vic and Dan DeGeorge, their goal of being “a friendly neighborhood music store […]

Be Kind. Make Things. [#502LeaderSeries]

Tucked behind Liberty Tattoo Shop on 3rd Street near Jim Patterson Stadium is Heritage Print Shop, your go-to spot for local screen printing in Louisville.

Tacos & Treasons [#TheBackbeat no.2]

When I sat down at Wild Rita’s with Rob Diver and Zack Pennington to talk about their band, Light Treasons, we joked about an opening line much like this one. “Are you going to say something about interviewing us with a mouth full of tacos?” Yes, Rob. Yes, I am.  You don’t have to drive […]

The Backbeat: Inside The Louisville Music Scene [#TheBackbeat no.1 #GetGoing]

If you were ever in a school band or took piano lessons, you might be familiar with the term downbeat. The downbeat is usually the first note in a musical bar – the steady rhythm of a song. But unless you’re an avid jazz fan or musician, you might be less familiar with the term backbeat. A […]

Before Summer Ends [#HeyYall no.2 #GetGoing]

Hey, y’all! Summer is ending; while I am more than ready for pumpkin-flavored everything, comfy sweaters, being outside without sweating, apple cider, and all of that jazz – I still get a little emotional when I see summer end. Summer, to me, is about freedom.  It’s about body liberation and loving yourself in your swimsuit.  It’s […]
