Skull Alley’s closure doesn’t bode well for the future of Louisville’s all-ages scene, but the future can wait until after New Year’s Day. On Friday, owner-operator Jamie Prott powers up the PA for the last time in what amounts to a time capsule for the combination music venue and print shop. Lemuria played Skull Alley’s first show, Reading Group is a relatively new outfit featuring Prott himself, and a brand new project called Black God, led by Robert Pennington (Endpoint, Minnow) and Ryan Patterson (Coliseum, Black Cross), is about as old-school punk as it comes. Young Lions and The Foxery open the show. Tickets are on sale at Skull Alley and ear X-tacy. —Mat Herron
