A family emergency forced the Foo Fighters to cancel their October 2017 show at Rupp Arena, it was rescheduled for May 1st, 8 months later.  But when they finally made it to Lexington, Grohl opened with the following apology: "Sorry we’re late. My bad". And then made up for it by playing 2.5 hours. Check out the photos from the show here:

Louisville Swig http://johnjmillerphotography.com/blog/2018/1/louis Louisville Magazine asked me to cover the 4th annual Louisville Swig celebration! Swig is  the party of the century, which celebrates the repeal of Prohibition with a food and drink tasting event like no other. It offered tastes from local bourbon, brandy, craft beer, wine and more, as well as from local restaurants. Plus, the popular Old Forester Speakeasy returned once again, and entertainment included music by Billy Goat Strut and swing dance demonstrations by the New Lou Swing Dance Community.

Katie Perry at KFC YUM Center http://johnjmillerphotography.com/blog/2017/10/katie-perry-at-kfc-yum-center Katy Perry's  Witness Tour made a stop at Louisville's KFC YUM! Center on Monday to promote her album by the same name. This is Perry’s first album since 2013’s Prism.

Perry has released two songs from the collection thus far: “Chained to the Rhythm” featuring Skip Marley and “Bon Appetit” featuring Migos.

“I left my 20s and I’ve gone to my 30s,” Perry said of the album. “I’ve embraced. I’ve surrendered. I’ve healed some of my issues with my family, with my relationships. Today I’m sober but I don’t know about tomorrow! One day at a time, right? [Laughs] It’s all kind of beautiful. I built up Katy Perry and she was so fun. And I still am Katy Perry and I love her so much but, at the core, I’m Katheryn Hudson and I think that’s being revealed as I embrace who I really am.”

A full list of tour dates can be found at Perry’s website. Shots from the Louisville show can be seen at:

Abandoned Mental Institution http://johnjmillerphotography.com/blog/2017/8/abandoned-mental-institution abandoned mental institution (asylum)abandoned mental institution (asylum)abandoned mental asylum. It was built in the early 19th century A couple of weekends ago, I visited one of the most eerie places I've ever been, an abandoned mental asylum. It was built in the early 19th century and operated for almost 100 years with few upgrades to the building while it was in operation.

It was notoriously known for being one of the most overpopulated asylums in the US. At it's peak, over 2000 patients were crowded into it's small dormitory (some were forced to reside in it's attic). Worse, the asylum continually ran in deficit. So it did not have enough doctors to treat the patients or the funds to make advancements to it's conditions. Thus, it became more like a prison than a hospital. In fact, in addition to treating individuals with mental illness it, the hospital also housed murderers and rapists, and even some for just being considered promiscuous.

The asylum performed treatments ranging from lobotomies to electric shock therapy. Because of the few doctors on hand and staff, patients received less than 10 minutes of psychiatric therapy per week.

It's unknown how many patients died during it's operation due to poor record keeping. Many that died at the asylum were buried in unmarked graves behind the facility.
