Louisville native Andrew Sellers (“Saredren Wells”) returns to town from Los Angeles to debut his newest project Andrew Rinehart. Andrew Rinehart is the latest moniker from Louisville, KY born and Los Angeles based songwriter Andrew Sellers. First active musically as a teenager in Louisville’s underground hardcore scene, Sellers’ band Flight Nineteen played regionally with acts like At The Drive In and Hot Water Music. His first solo album “Memories Are Hunting Horns,” released in 2010 under the pseudonym “Saredren Wells”, walked a tightrope between more conventional songwriter fare and the off-kilter world of artists like Daniel Johnston, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, and Sufjan Stevens.

The Caribbean is an American experimental pop group from Washington, D.C., primarily composed of Michael Kentoff, Matthew Byars, and Dave Jones. The band has been critically acclaimed for its deconstructionist approach to pop music, its wry, literary lyrics, and its eclectic sound, which incorporates elements of American pop, indie rock and experimental rock, cool jazz, folk music, lounge music, and even Brazilian music. The band’s most recent album, Discontinued Perfume, received high praise from Pitchfork, with the reviewed as: “It’s as though the band had all the pieces for comfortable indie pop in its possession but no interest in putting them into a standard order. This is of course what makes them interesting. They are bound to confound your expectations several times on any given album, and if you’re into that, they’re good enough at putting these weird songs together that they can pull you in with surprising ease.”
