In between the downpours of rain, those who made it out to the Palace Theater last night experienced a multifaceted stage production.
In spirit of The Great Escape Artist, Louisville’s Palace Theater was a fitting venue for the theatrical performance by Jane's Addiction last night. Accompanied by eccentric stage characters and props, they left no album untouched with a mixed set list to please any fan.

Ryan Adams
The always entertaining Ryan Adams turns in a fine solo acoustic performance at the Palace Theater on Monday night. He sings, he improvises, he talks in funny voices, and he breaks your heart.
Before I get to the Ryan Adams show proper, performed at the Palace Theater on Monday night to a sold-out crowd, let me digress on a couple of matters. If you were one of the unlucky ones who dithered around and didn't get tickets, had to work, or were simply too late to the box office, you...
