Weekender: Feb. 25-26

Victory Over Sound

Saturday, Feb. 25

Clifton Center
2117 Payne St. • 896-8480
$10; 8 p.m.

Though there are four musical acts on this bill, the only thing hardcore about it is how hardcore awesome it’ll be. New Yorker and former Louisvillian Diane Williams — known to some of y’all as d.w. box — returns with her new project, Victory Over Sound, to art your rock up. The all-star production involves members of Wax Fang, Whistle Peak, Dane Waters, Ultra Pulverize, FattLabb and more. She’s also invited The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Robert Bozeman’s group dedicated to keeping medieval choral, chamber and organ music alive and well. Local soulful rockers Silver Tongues (also featuring members of Wax Fang and d.w. box) and up-and-coming all-star riff-monsters Old Baby complete the cast of this inspired evening, which will be filmed for a DVD. —Peter Berkowitz

The Bach Haus
4607 Hanford Lane • 895-4319
Free (by reservation); 3:30 p.m.

The League of Women Voters of Louisville presents “A Musical Afternoon” Sunday to launch a capital campaign to revitalize the League’s Lang House headquarters and meeting hall. “The Musical Afternoon” takes place at The Bach Haus, a special recital hall at the home of Melvin and Margaret Dickinson. The program features a cello quartet, headed by promising young Louisville cellist Anne Richardson, joined by Brooke Hicks, Anne Monson and Bonnie Avery. (YouTube clip to click: Anne Richardson Cello Intermezzo.) Also, Mrs. Dickinson will perform on The Bach Haus’ renowned Gottfried Reck tracker pipe organ. All in all, an unusual musical event to benefit an unusually admirable organization. —Bill Doolittle

•‘Amazing Race’ party

Sunday, Feb. 26

Hooters in Jeffersonville
700 W. Riverside Drive
Free; 7-10 p.m.

So, did you watch the new “Amazing Race” last Sunday? I’m sure you saw the new team from Kentucky — Bopper and Mark. They seem like decent enough guys — perhaps a bit red around the edges. The Manchester, Ky., team is certainly more entertaining than the clown couple — or those douchebags from Jersey. Bopper Minton and Mark Jackson will be in town Sunday at Kent and Vyxsin’s viewing party for the next episode of the “Race.” Kent and Vyxsin, as you recall, were on two past seasons of the show and represented Louisville well. This might be the only viewing party this season, so make your way over to Hooters in Jeffersonville to meet the new team. It’s all ages and free. —Sara Havens
