    • Widespread Panic - Algerian rescuers try to save two men trapped under a building during an aftershock earthquake in Reghaia 27 May, 2003, 30kms east of Algiers. A strong aftershock measuring at least 5.5 on the Richter scale jolted Algeria late 27 May, causing widespread panic and at least 200 injuries as more quake-damaged buildings collapsed to the east of the capital. The aftershock occurred six days after a massive earthquake ravaged the region in the northeast of the country, claiming at least 2,200 lives, state radio reported.

    The Forecastle Festival will return this summer led by Louisville hometown heroes My Morning Jacket; soulful breakout star Sam Smith; southern rock heavyweights Widespread Panic; and indie veterans Modest Mouse.

    The three-day music celebration, now in its 13th year, will take place July 17 and 19, 2015, at Waterfront Park, a sweeping green space on the banks of the Ohio River, framed by the skyline of downtown Louisville.

    The Bourbon Lodge, Forecastle's slice of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, will return in 2015 with a full lineup of bourbon offerings, bourbon education, a bourbon-inspired culinary experience and much more. Fans of bourbon will have the option to purchase advanced Bourbon Lodge memberships with their weekend pass through Ticketmaster.

    Bottoms up!

    Good music, good bevvies!

    Also returning in 2015, The Kentucky Landing will feature a variety of regional craft beers, local food trucks and a selection of non-profit organizations and craft vendors selling Kentucky-made goods.
