AWOLNATION To Headline Alternative's Gathering For Bands, Bourbon, Betting & The Bugler
April 11, 2016 at 3:43 AM (PT)
The magical place where all of these fine things will come together is along the whiskey trail in LOUISVILLE, KY. CO5 & MX2 MEDIA are GATHERING Alternative programmers, music supervisors, and bloggers at the legendary BROWN HOTEL for three days of music and networking on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15th-FRIDAY, JUNE 17th for the first-ever "GATHERING."
On WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15th, Alt radio comrades from around the country will convene for the opening night party of THE GATHERING along the Whiskey Trail at the legendary CHURCHILL DOWNS RACETRACK. Where else?! This party is hat and bowtie optional. What is required is a thirst for good company, great music, fine food, fire-cured cigars and the best bourbon in America. Because gambling with actual money is frowned upon, there will be “mock” horse racing and betting.
STEVE BUTTLEMAN, the official bugler at CHURCHILL DOWNS, will be in attendance. Get the man some bourbon and let him explain why his job is way harder than yours. He is expected to play 33 absolutely perfect notes. See, there’s always another NIELSEN survey, but never another chance to get the Call to the Post right with millions of fans watching. No pressure.
On THURSDAY, JUNE 16th and FRIDAY JUNE 17th, THE GATHERING will convene at three different KENTUCKY BOURBON distilleries with artist showcases. AWOLNATION will sail in for a headline performance on JUNE 17th at MERCURY BALLROOM.
