Opening for Relic
9 p.m. 5000 (from Lafayette, IN) (http://www.facebook.com/pages/5000/112291802139843?ref=ts) Pat McClimans is from Lafayette, IN and moved to Louisville briefly in the 1990's to play bass in Endpoint. He later went on to play with Falling Forward and Metroschifter before moving back home to Lafayette. 5000 is an acoustic duo. The group performs many original pieces as well as covers that, with their own personal twist, remain familiar but offer something new. http://history.louisvillehardcore.com/index.php?title=Pat_McClimans 8 p.m John Paul Wright (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/jpwright) John Paul Wright is a Locomotive Engineer for CSX Transportation, working the old L&N line from Louisville to Nashville. He is also a musician. He grew up in a very musical family. His grandfather was the lead chanter for the Greek Orthodox Church in Louisville, KY. His father and uncles played folk mass for St. Paul’s Church. The entire Wright side of his family sang for the Social Male Chorus German Club. He bought his first guitar when he was 14. John Prine was his stepfather’s favorite, so he soon learned all the songs from that record. He started listening to Bluegrass in his 20’s and soon was hooked. He started fiddling with mandolin and soon started playing banjo. 7 p.m. Ben Purdom (http://www.myspace.com/benpurdommusic) Since 1993 Ben Purdom has been making a quiet little noise, writing songs from subliminal and collective conscience, with twists of John Prine, Elvis Costello, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Neil Young. Raised in the same small Kentucky town as Archer Prewitt, Purdom brings his passion to every single song, and it shows. http://leomusicblog.blogspot.com/2008/10/ben-purdom-on-leo-music-cast.html http://www.sunergoscoffee.com/
