Black Tie and Bluegrass @ Brown Theatre & IUS

Nov. 8-9

Brown Theatre (Nov. 8, $20-$26, 6:30 p.m.)
Ogle Center, IUS (Nov. 9, $20, 7 p.m.)

The renowned bluegrass band Fletcher Bright and the Dismembered Tennessseans sits in with the Louisville Orchestra and pops conductor Bob Bernhardt for NiteLights Series events Thursday at the Brown Theatre and Friday at the Ogle Center on the IUS campus in New Albany. The Dismembered members and their orchestra accomplices pick and saw country standards such as “Ashoken Farewell” and “Southern Flavor,” with a special take on the “Tennessee Waltz,” written, of course, by Louisvillian Pee Wee King and Red Stewart. There’s a happy hour for concertgoers preceding the Thursday show — 4-6 p.m. at the BBC, just around the corner from the Brown on Fourth Street. —Bill Doolittle
