Can you think of anywhere better to see Kentucky Knife Fight than … in Kentucky? (The Mag Bar would also suffice as an answer to that question.) The St. Louis-based (yeah, I said it) rock ’n’ rollers are coming to give us the what for, though their grasp of basic bourbon drinking etiquette may not be up to snuff (Google it, Missourians). But maybe we’re being too wary — former local Pokey LaFarge, America’s Riverboat captain, does live there now, too. And the Riverfront Times have named them “Best Rock Band” twice, for what that’s worth. And, their new single is called “Misshapen Love.” Plus, it’s The Ladybirds’ first performance at the Mag Bar (wha???), and a chance to catch new songs for an upcoming release. Plus The Tunesmiths, so that’s a hell of a night. —Peter Berkowitz
