Garrison Keillor, Houndmouth (and More) to Perform This Summer at Iroquois Amphitheater

The 2013 performances at the Iroquois Amphitheater kick off on April 26 with Louisville area-based rock band Houndmouth and includes Garrison Keillor and the Prairie Home Companion Radio Romance Tour, Gregg Allman and former Drive-By Trucker Jason Isbell.

Tickets information for some of these events are here.

The Iroquois Amphitheater is celebrating its 75th season, and Metro Louisville is also announcing a program where patrons can “sponsor a seat.” In a news release, the city says:

For a donation of $100, individuals can have their name imprinted on a small plaque affixed to a seat, or may sponsor a seat in honor of a loved one or friend. A special anniversary event is planned for later in the season.

Houndmouth’s debut album is scheduled for release on June 3 via London-based Rough Trade Records. Here’s a sneak peak from From the Hills Below the City:
