LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 8.18 133 3 X 2 Locals as critics Hunter Embry is managing partner of Seven Sense Festival, featuring more than 40 bands at Gravely Brewing Co. Aug. 10 and 11. Tia Coatley hosts The Tia Marie Show on 97.1 ARTxFM and is producing the Greatest Youth Talent Showcase Sept. 1 at the Salvation Army Auditorium. Read the first page of Hope Never Dies, a fictional account of the adventur- ous friend- ship between Barack Obama and Joe Biden, by Lexington author Andrew Shaffer (who'll do a reading at Carmichael's in Crescent Hill Aug. 2). Thoughts? "Generally, I steer clear of fiction because there's too much going on in reality. However, the author had me with 'Uncle Joe Biden' being in a 'black Irish mood.' And then again with Obama tethered to the stern of an 'impossibly long speedboat' off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa." "Seemed to be a great start to a book about a friendship." Read the Spam Brown recipe from The Hot Brown: Louisville's Legendary Open-Faced Sandwich, by Albert W. A. Schmid. Thoughts? "Let me preface this with the fact that I've never had a Hot Brown (blas- phemous, I know). Nor have I had Spam — at least I don't think I have. However, I was raised on bologna sandwiches and feel like the two could be cousins. I've also never been known to turn down a meal, so...gimme a bite." "I used to eat Spam regularly, more in my youth than in adulthood. However, I do enjoy it and found it to be an interesting ingredient for such a dish. I could see how Spam could be a complementary substitute. I have to know what all of those other ingredi- ents would taste like with Spam instead of turkey. Melting the white Cheddar with the bacon just sound- ed dreamy!" Listen to "True Dark" off The Other Shore, the album by Louisville's Murder By Death out Aug. 24. Thoughts? "Bitchin' rock song from a band that excels in estab- lishing moods and themes throughout their records. The stellar production highlights elements of gothic, Western, punk and psychedelia. The drums are shoved atop a rushing bass, cutting cello and jangly acoustic, all blanket- ed by an eerily beautiful organ. The background vocals are hauntingly smooth and the lead is anthem-worthy. Murder by Death needs to play Seven Sense Festival in 2019." "The melancholy rhythm feels so unapologetically Kentucky. It could easily be a score in a movie. And I so appreciated the many instruments. Especially the banjo." Work by Al Gorman along the Ohio.
