This weekend: Saturday night at Summers On The River in Charlestown

A great string of outdoor live shows continues this weekend, with a Saturday night (August 20) solo show on the Ohio River, just upriver from Louisville, in Charlestown at Summers on the River.  An appropriate name and venue for a Rusty Bladen show, as Rusty plays many summertime shows outdoors.  SOTR is a favorite of RB.  The homegrown rock and roll show starts at 9pm.

Rusty is in the midst of a run of 20 outdoor shows this summer. with Saturday’s show being number 15 outside.

Notes: Earlier this week, Rusty was in the studio with friend and multi-instrumentalist, Louisville’s Mark Miller.  They cut one song during an afternoon of work … Look for an upcoming release of the legendary (for many Bladen fans) Scott Theater concert video. The all-original show was professionally filmed at the iconic small town venue back in 2006… On August 26, Rusty plays a racetrack show in southern Indiana, at Big Creek Raceway in Deputy, Indiana.  The track kicks off Round 3 of the King’s Klash of UTV racing with Rusty’s show. Gates open at noon on Friday, Aug. 26. Admission for the ENTIRE weekend is $10.  A great night of music, and they say you can feel free to camp, and stay to enjoy the racing on Saturday.

Shows This Weekend: July 29 & 30

harpFriday night (July 29), the fabulous Crazy Horse Ranch and Lodge in West Baden hosts Rusty Bladen.  Situated in enough Orange County seclusion to make you feel like it’s a private party, this is a great place to see a show (And French Lick and the casino is just about 10 minutes away!).  Check out the link above that gives you a look at the place – it is a pretty great deal… (Map/Directions)

Saturday night (July 30), Rusty takes the show to HoPfest, at German Park in Indianapolis.  The festival, featuring breweries like Noble Brewery, Taxman Brewery, Tow Yard Brewing and New Day Meadery, runs from 5-11pm. Rusty will hit the stage at approx. 6pm, but get there early to make sure; if the place is rocking, he may go on early. A beerfest!  Love it. (Map/Directions)
