After spending the ’80s as an up-and-coming jangle pop guitarist with Oh-OK, Lloyd Cole, and in his own band, Buzz of Delight, Matthew Sweet emerged in 1991 as the leading figure of the American power pop revival. Sweet adhered to traditional song craft, yet subverted the form by adding noisy post-punk guitar and flourishes of country-rock, resulting in an amalgam of the Beatles, Big Star, R.E.M., and Neil Young. Sweet’s third album, Girlfriend (1991), became a word-of-mouth critical and commercial hit over
the course of 1992, with its title track reaching the Top Five on the Modern Rock charts and went on to achieve platinum certification. For the next five years, as alternative rock was the dominant commercial force in rock & roll, Sweet became a very popular concert attraction and solidified his reputation as the premiere alternative pop singer/songwriter. His next two records, Altered Beast (1993) and 100% Fun (1995) were both critically acclaimed and successful albums, going gold and platinum making many year-end best-of lists. Tomorrow’s Daughter—the follow-up to the artist’s acclaimed 2017 set Tomorrow Forever—is a persuasive testament to the enduring qualities of Sweet’s adventurous, emotion-charged song craft.
What goes well with Brats and Beer? Answer: BlackJack, Bingo, and Live Music of course!
One of the annual highlights is the the Dan Cummins BlackJack tent where you and your friends can try your luck against the dealers in cards. It’s always so much fun and don’t worry, there are plenty of servers on point keeping the beer flowing at the tables. Chips can be bought in $1 & $5 denominations and remember a “push” goes to support the good Lord and Christ the King.
Scientists have reported that shouting “BINGO” at least once a year releases a dopamine tsunami in the brain and can add years to your life! You’ll have the chance to do just that in Lexington, KY at the 2019 Oktoberfest on September 20th and 21st at Christ the King Cathedral! I mean, who doesn’t love Beer and Bingo. Bring your mother…she’ll show you how it’s done.
