John Timmons first began ear X-tacy records as a small mail order operation that he ran out of his apartment. As John's customer base grew larger, he realized that he needed to open an actual store.

In 1985, the first ear X-tacy was born in Louisville, KY.

Over the next 10 years, ear X-tacy went through various moves until finding a permanent home on Bardstown Road in 1995.

In the last few years the store has continued to host more and more live concerts & special events and strengthened its community outreach... while embracing new media... staying open-minded and helping to "keep Louisville weird."

Over the years, the store has gone through extensive changes but the basic philosophy has remained the same: ear X-tacy is the kind of place where anyone from indie kid to octogenarian is welcome... where emerging local artists and national touring bands play free all-ages concerts each week...

A few out of town acts who have dome damage to our stage: The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Tenacious D, Indigo Girls, Bella Fleck, JJ Grey and more.

Building a strong independent culture is our everyday mission. We're thankful for the amazing support we have in Louisville and for the people that travel from far and wide to visit the store. We're happy to say that 2010 marked our 25th Anniversary!

Any artist or band wanting to play MUST have a professionally replicated CD (indie or label release). CD's you burn at home will not so it. We do in store performances to help artists sell their music. If you don't have any music to sell, you should probably look look for a more traditional venue for your gig.

We expect you to have some sort of a following and be able to bring some people in. We support good music, but do in stores to get people IN THE STORE. So make sure you can.
