“The Louisville Outskirts Festival is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run weekend of musical performances, educational workshops, and community building. The festival seeks to encourage, support, inspire, and highlight the music made by women* of Louisville’s independent music scene as well as showcase influential and inspiring musicians selected from other parts of the country and world. The Outskirts Festival aims to demonstrate that female musicians are complex and multifaceted artists. We have many different points of view to express, musical influences that have shaped us, and diverse experiences that we have lived. We hope that our festival will shatter stereotypes about what “women’s music” is. ”

The Louisville, KY Courier-Journal urges you to ‘hear The Handsome Family’s dark love’ this Friday at the Decca Cellar Lounge.
“I really enjoy the process of honing down a story to its essential elements,” Rennie said. “[...]I like that idea where a song is just like a snapshot of a story and there’s a lot of space for mystery. I like when things are a little unclear. It’s good for your brain. I’m not interested in stories that make too much sense — there’s no room for dreaming.”
We were hooked by the first 5 seconds of True Detective’s opening credits, and it looks like we weren’t alone! We are so thrilled that Carrot Top superstars The Handsome Family could contribute the music!
