UPDATE: Due to upcoming thunderstorms this evening, LOUISVILLE LOVES MOUNTAINS has been moved to THE GREEN BUILDING at 732 E. Market Street! Be there!

Kentuckians For The Commonwealth, Heine Brothers’ Coffee,
and Carmichael’s Bookstore to host 5th Annual Festival to benefit
Kentucky Mountain Communities

Louisville Loves Mountains Festival will be held May 17th
on Longest Ave at Bardstown Road from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

An impressive list of local artists and musicians are teaming up with Heine Brothers’ Coffee and
Carmichael’s Bookstore and the social justice group Kentuckians For The Commonwealth for an
evening to celebrate Kentucky’s mountain beauty and heritage.

The fifth annual Louisville Loves Mountains Festival will be held Friday evening, May 17th
from 4–10 p.m. A section of Longest Avenue at Bardstown Road – adjacent to Heine Brothers
and Carmichael’s stores – will be blocked off to create an outdoor space for the festivities. In the
event of rain the festivities will be moved to The Green Building at 732 East Market Street.
The music lineup includes Troubadours of Divine Bliss, Potluck Ramblers, Hog Operation, River
City Pipe Drummers, Beady, Slow Charleston, and an outdoor dance party with Hay DJ.
The event will feature educational booths on issues affecting Appalachia with a focus on the
impacts of mountain top removal mining.

The festival celebrates the unique natural beauty and ecological importance of Kentucky’s
Appalachian Mountains and mountain communities. The headwaters of three major rivers that
feed into the Ohio River are in eastern Kentucky, and its forests are among the most diverse
hardwood forest in North America.

The region also is the source of coal that is burned locally to generate electricity, creating a major
source of Louisville air pollution. Some of that coal is mined using mountaintop removal, a
highly destructive form of mining that Kentuckians For The Commonwealth is working to end.
Proceeds from the festival will support these efforts and efforts to explore new economic
opportunities for the region.

The festival is free and open to the public. There will be local food, beer, activities, and music.
All participating vendors are donating a percentage of their sales to Kentuckians for the
Commonwealth and their work to end mountain top removal mining and Appalachian transition.

KFTC is a 31-year-old non-partisan, member-run social justice organization working to ensure
the voices of Kentuckians are heard and respected in our democracy. Call 502-589-3188 for
more information.

VENUE CHANGE! Due to expected severe weather this afternoon/evening, Ben Sollee will now be playing INSIDE at HB-DOUGLASS LOOP! 7pm – be there early for a good spot! Thanks everyone!

Here at Heine Brothers’ – we’ve been a big fan of Ben Sollee for years. When we found out that he was working on a limited-release LIVE album, we asked how we could help. After some brainstorming, we all decided to not only have the album release show at one of our shops, but to also be the exclusive retailer for the album!

Come out to Heine Brothers’ Coffee on the corner of Eastern Parkway and Bardstown Road on Tuesday May 1 2012 for a FREE live show by Ben Sollee on the patio, and pick up a copy of his new live album “LIVE at The Grocery on Home” while you are there. This album is being sold for $20, which includes an extra copy that you can share with a friend! A portion of the money also goes to the Louisville Independent Business Alliance, helping to Keep Louisville Weird. Music starts at 7pm, be there early if you want a good spot!
