Turkuaz, Technicolor & tax prep

Posted By
COVINGTON, Ky. - No doubt you’ve noticed that we almost always go for the cheap-and-easy alliteration in our headlines for “Weekend in LovetheCov.”
As we tried to sum up this weekend’s events, we were torn between the letter “T” (as you can see above) or the letter “M” (in which case we’d have written “Meatloaf, meditation & music”) to tease to this weekend in Covington.
Just thought you’d like to know ...
The Kuadrochrome Tour
They’ve been featured in The New Yorker and played at Bonnaroo and Telluride.
On Friday evening, the Brooklyn-based fund band Turkuaz will bring its “male-female harmonies, strutting guitars, wild horn arrangements, and interminable grooves” toMadison Theater.
Tickets, HERE.
Album release party
The Noah Wotherspoon Band - whose namesake won the Best Guitarist Award in 2015 at the International Blues Challenge - will drop its new album “Mobile Juke House Theater” in Covington on Saturday.
It’s at the Band of Helping Hands in Latonia. As usual, proceeds help kids enjoy the arts.
Tickets, HERE.
Poor poor Joseph ...’
That amazing coat of many colors and a whole lot of catchy singing (with a little Bible history thrown in) stars in Covington during yet another weekend of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
Listen as Joseph, his brothers, and the Elvis-sounding pharaoh tell their tales at The Carnegie.
Info and tickets are HERE ... but the Northern Kentucky Heritage League is selling its own tickets to the Sunday matinee, with a gathering afterward, HERE.
Turning serious
With Covington almost 80 miles from Frankfort, daily news coverage of the winter session of the Kentucky General Assembly is hard to come by.
But there IS a session going on, and it’s important.
Saturday, you can join a conversation about issues legislators are or should be addressing during “Coffee for the Commonwealth” at Roebling Point Books & Coffee, sponsored by the NKY Chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth.
Info, HERE.
Chuckle chortle
Need a laugh? How about more than one?
Catch the Madison Live! Comedy Show on Saturday, featuring Jay Armstrong, Tony Kordenbrock, Kristy Ashley, Travis Connor, and Mac Mciver.
Tickets, HERE.
Ketchup on top?
“Ground or chopped meat, usually beef, with added seasonings, molded into the shape of a loaf and baked.”
Friends, that’s the literal (i.e. soul-less) definition of “meatloaf.”
But if you know how to turn that loaf-shaped dinner into something fabulous and fantastic, head to Happy Days Sports Tavern on Bakewell Street this Saturday for The Great American Meatloaf Cook-Off.
There are prizes, of course, and karaoke. Because even so-called comfort food needs its time to shine.
Info, HERE.
Meditation + Mocktails
Forget “Happy Hour.”
This is “Happiness Hour” ... and it includes guided meditation, mocktails (courtesy of mixologists Morgan Earley and Brynn Gordan) and community.
It happens at Sage Yoga on Sunday, with proceeds benefiting Calm Mind Foundation’s Recovery Yoga Program.
Registration is required, HERE.
Farmers Market
Every Saturday morning, you can find food, home-made goods and more from local farmers, and artisans at the Covington Farmers Market.
This week’s exhortation? “Fresh is best.”
All under roof at Braxton Brewing Company, with live music by Andrew Jensen.
Info, HERE.
And then ... Holtman’s Donut Bar at Braxton Brewing on Friday morning, HERE ... “Family Feud” Game Night on Sunday at Trinity Episcopal Church, HERE ... Free Tax Prep on Saturday morning at The Center for Great Neighborhoods of Covington, HERE... a Braxton Brewery Gift Card Party this Friday, HERE ... an Arts Night Out for kids Friday at ExploreMore Gifted, HERE ... and The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery show this Saturday, HERE.
