more writing scheduled for tonight.

For you guys on here. I have a few questions if you would please:

1. How has the 502 Message Board help/support/inform you of whats going on in the music scene?  I first came on to the scene in 2002 after meeting Sailor from My Own Victim while we were out on the road with Days of the New. Shortly thereafter I was told of the Factor 9 boards, which was where alot of show information was to be found. Through the Factor 9 boards I learned of bands like Puc, One With Misery, 1080, After the Fall, Factor 9 (ironic huh), Engrind, Faceplant, amongst others.

2. In your opinion, how has the music scene influenced Louisville's underground culture? Well, this is a tough question for me since I live in Defiance, OH. I think of this in the exact opposite of ways - I think Louisville's underground culture influences the music scene. For instance the grass roots punk movement going on is mostly underground. Shows aren't really talked about on here, but you do hear about them.

3. Over the years has there been a change in the dominant genre of music that bands are playing? Or has it just always remained a mixed bag of sound? As far as I know there's always been a bag of mixed sound. Even in it's late 90s/early 2000s hey day if you look at the acts that were signed out of the local scene, it was pretty varied. You had Days of the New, Tantric, Flaw, Outspoken, The Villebillies, Nicole Scherzinger, Ugly, and My Morning Jacket amongst others come out of this city. That's pretty varied, and that's just bands or musicians from this city that ended up on major labels. On the other hand, with the local rock/metal scene, that scene has been and will always be trendy. When Nu Metal was popular, you had more Nu Metal bands playing. With pop/punk getting popular, you had more pop/punk bands playing. People play what they like to hear, and when you are younger, you are trying to fit in and be heard. When you are older and mature, this is less important.

Everyone on here has been a great help and the article is coming along nicely. I'm still waiting for some replies to come in, but I'm hoping that after all is said and done it will do justice to all the bands who have taken part in the Louisville music scene.

If I may ask for some additional help with time lines:

1. If anyone can help me put what bands were active during what years
2. The primary genre that was popular during those years
3. The venues that were the big places to play.

Thanks again.

Headliners has always been one of the best, and the most popular one back early 2000 was Tek World.

The best way to tell the story of the past Louisville music scene is to listen to the music. I have lots of it. There's other bands I remember playing with but I don't have their music. This is only scratching the surface. Like I said before this is a huge undertaking! Good luck!

1. How has the 502 Message Board help/support/inform you of whats going on in the music scene?

This message board is just a small part of the scene. In comparison, most local musicians are NOT on this board. As far as show support, I advertise on here quite a bit but never get that much response because most of the people on here are musicians trying to do the same thing I am. I do find out about a lot of shows on here but honestly the most that you get on here is people talking shit because it's easier to type and then to tell somebody face to face.

2. In your opinion, how has the music scene influenced Louisville's underground culture?

Not much anymore. The scene is in a bad spot right now in comparison to the late 80's and the 90's. There was excitement then. Many things factor into this such as, the economy, the lack of venues, the lack of payment for origional bands, the lack of people caring about local music, gas prices, beer and liquor prices, drinking and driving.

3. Over the years has there been a change in the dominant genre of music that bands are playing? Or has it just always remained a mixed bag of sound?

Louisville has always been about music cliques, and most of the time the different cliques don't even know what the other is doing or don't even care.

As far as a mix bag, Louisville has mainly these kind of bands: Cover bands (who get paid the most), all kinds of metal, hardcore and punk (who don't get paid) and others like country, blues, jazz and bluegrass. What's missing is just bands that are in between. That's want I think Louisville is missing, and also the fact that most "normal people" don't care about or think that local music sucks, I hate that. People forget that all bands you hear on the radio started out as a local band somewhere...

I've supported all my life and still do. I wish there was a way to get more people into local music.

Thanks, Tim Flaherty

Also Unrule and Kentucky Death Wish and krosjoint. How long did it take to remember all that and then type it in numerical and alphabetical order? Dude you must have played for about 4 or 5 hours straight last nite. I knew a lot of those songs except some of the 80's stuff. Lost me with the Dokken and Dio. Good times.

Holy Shit! thanks guys! With the kind of information I'm getting this might turn into a book, rather than an article.

Is there a place to listen to all the bands that were mentioned?

Anyhow, thank you for all the info, keep it coming. I appreciate everyone who is helping out. And I would like to be able to give credit to all those who provided this info, so when the piece gets near completion, if you want, please let me know your name or "nic name" so I can say thanks.
