Local artists and music promoters are joining together to raise money for and awareness of the struggling ear X-tacy record store and its imprint on the Louisville music scene.

The show, called “ear X travaganza,” will take place Sunday, December 26 at Headliners Music Hall, 1386 Lexington Road. Confirmed performers include Ben Sollee, Cabin, Jim James from My Morning Jacket, Patrick Hallahan, Scott Carney and The Watson Twins. More acts may be added as the date approaches.

“I can’t say it enough,” says Billy Hardison, manager at Headliners. “The vitality of this scene, as I see it, is a three-legged stool: WFPK, the venues and promoters, and ear X-tacy. The art itself rests on top—but if you remove any one leg, it’ll topple.”

Doors will open at 7 p.m. the day of the concert.

Tickets for the all-ages show are $20 and will go on sale this Saturday, December 11 at ear X-tacy, www.headlinerslouisville.com and www.etix.com.
