NABC is pouring at the city of New Albany's 2012 Independence Festival" on Tuesday, July 3, at the Riverfront Amphitheater.

The conspicuous absence of Confederate Railroad is happily noted; this is an inside joke (in more ways than one) from 2011.

For those so inclined, adult refreshments on the 3rd will begin at 4:00 p.m., and last call will be at 10:45 p.m. The "beer garden" area is restricted to those 21 years of age or older, although drinks can be carried into the all-ages area but not outside the perimeter of the venue's fencing. As of this moment, I am not aware of the city's plans for the vending of food, so stay tuned for further details. NABC hopes to see you there on Tuesday, July 3.


We will have 2 "Rock School" bands from Jimmy's Music Center (Uncommon Sense and Fenderilla).  "Violet Knives" will perform a half hour set afterwards, then Olivia Henken will take the stage.  The Louisville Crashers’ first set will follow, with a fireworks display serving as intermission, after which they'll return for their final set.  Wick's will be serving domestic beers, the NABC will be serving their craft beers and the River City Winery will be serving their craft wines.

Olivia Henken: "Big Star Bound!" ...With some artists, this is a true statement, and no more so than for Olivia Henken.  With numerous credits, from Musicals to National appearances, Olivia definitely has the talent to succeed.  Through belting out ballads and rocking out to "Gunpowder & Lead," Olivia has what it takes to entertain all ages.  Olivia is an entertainer for all, delivering an incredible show that must be experienced before her next appearance at an arena near you.
The Louisville Crashers: Widely recognized as one of the nation’s best party bands, the Louisville Crashers are the perfect band for any occasion. With their unparalleled energy, musicianship, and professionalism, they’ll keep your event rockin’ all night long!
