Rye Launches free summer music series


Rye, a restaurant in Louisville’s East Market district, is hosting free concert series throughout the summer.

The second season of the Back Porch Sessions will be held every third Thursday, from May through September, in Rye’s parking lot at 900 E. Market St.

The Back Porch Sessions are intended to expose local artists and create a place for the community to gather around food and music, according to a press release.

The first session will be held May 16 and features three emerging Louisville artists, the psychedelic synth pop of The Pass, the invincible hip hop of Jalin Roze and one very special guest that has not been announced. The special guest theme will continue throughout the Back Porch Sessions along with the amazing food and beverages that were a staple of last year’s events, according to the release.

Guests from 2012 included Houndmouth, My Morning Jacket’s Patrick Hallahan and Ben Sollee.

Headliners for upcoming Back Porch Sessions include A Lion Named Roar on June 13, Discount Guns on July 18, Whistle Peak on August 15 and an unnamed headliner for the finale on September 19.
