A most glorious show stopping moment from this weekend will always stick
with us... We will not soon forget watching the Insect Policy set as the
band suddenly stopped and lifted signs that read “Will You Marry Me?”.
Suddenly guitarist Tyler Chanley dropped to one knee and proposed to Anna
Back. It was one of the most punk rock moments I have ever witnessed. We
wish this warm and wonderful couple a very long and happy life together.
With a project of this size, there are so many people to thank, so forgive
me for this long post.
To the 188 bands who sent in songs, a huge THANK YOU!!! You are what this
compilation was all about, documenting your creativity and you came in
droves with music that defines and shows the strength of the Louisville
music scene. I love and respect each and ever one you all for willingness to
be part of this compilation.
To Sean Liter and his pillar of a record store Modern Cult Records for
hosting both evenings of the release shows. THANK YOU for your willingness

dedication to local music and creating a record store that embraces and

helped Sean with the shop in every step of the way and also her words of
encouragement for this project were never lost on us and brought us up when
we were down. We love you all.

happened: Amy Munson for her meticulous layout, graphic design, photography

incredible, I love you. Also, those squirrel cookies were a hit

flyers and doing any crazy thing we needed him to do, you are a champion.
