Denny and the Jets @ Zanzabar

Tuesday, Aug. 28

2100 S. Preston
$5; 9 p.m.

You can tell Nashville’s Denny and The Jets appreciate a throwback to the early days of rock ’n’ roll, and not just because of the ’74 Elton John hit that comes to mind when you hear their band name. With songs like “Fun Girls” and “Blow Whistle Blow” sounding like yesterday’s Bill Haley and the Comets combined with the swoon of today’s Deer Tick, their set (and their new album, Slick Rick) is guaranteed to make you tap your foot and swing your hips. Joined by local indie rockers Giving Up, whose first full length PEACE SIGN/FROWN FACE was just released on Independence Day, and with an evening-ending dance party provided by DJs Evan Patterson and Jonathan Wood of Old Baby, this is a night the hip cats of Louisville will not want to miss. —Kelly Kettering
