‘Louisville is For Haters’ Show Will Pay Tribute to Tenacious D, Spinal Tap
Louisville artists Nick Peay and the Uncommon Houseflies will pay tribute to Tenacious D and Spinal Tap at the Rudyard Kipling on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012.
Singer-songwriter Nick Peay, who is also front man for local band OK Zombie, and the Uncommon Houseflies will play an evening of Tenacious D and Spinal Tap songs at Old Louisville’s The Rudyard Kipling, located at 422 W. Oak Street.
Peay’s one-man musical tribute to the over-the-top rock duo Tenacious D will be punctuated by short skits that will help tell the stories behind the songs. Meanwhile, the Uncommon Houseflies will don their best British accents and turn their amps up to 11 in musical tribute to Spinal Tap, the band made famous by the 1984 mockumentary about the fictional band.
“This show is a reaction to the annual Halloween show called ‘Louisville is for Covers,’” said Peay, who is organizing “Haters.” “It sounds mean-spirited, but it’s really all in fun.”
Peay said those in attendance can expect a heavy dose of Tenacious D’s first album as well as a nod or two in the direction of the band’s 2006 film “The Pick of Destiny.” Meanwhile, the Uncommon Houseflies promise to pull out as many Spinal Tap favorites as they can learn, such as “Sex Farm,” “Big Bottom” and “Stonehenge.”
The show begins at 10 p.m.; cover charge is $5. For more information, visit nickpeaymusic.com or uncommonhouseflies.com.
