Are the holidays making you feel nostalgic? On Friday, two of Louisville’s finest reunite for the first time in about seven years, as Christiansen and Ten to Midnight take the stage. Formed in the late ’90s, Christiansen were Louisville’s premier indie emo act during the early part of this century. Changing their name to Your Highness following the release of their 2004 Revelations Records release Stylish Nihilists, the band hasn’t played a show since 2005. Having formed in early 2002, Ten To Midnight covered similar, albeit garage rock-influenced material, and operated until 2007. Taken as a whole, the pair serves as a fair cross-section of a time not that far removed, but far enough to be missed. Come reminisce about the not-so old days before ringing in the new year. —Syd Bishop
