Jump to: navigation, search

'The Rud' is owned by Ken Pyle and has housed many shows and events over the years. Ken has a genuine, heartfelt appreciation for all types of music. 'The Rud' has many different types of food and rinks, including many Kentucky favorites. Most shows at this venue are 21+, however, there have been a couple of all-ages events there over the years, including 2 Black Cross shows (one of which was Rob and Becca Pennington's wedding reception which also saw a reunion by Big Wheel). A bulk of their shows are indie rock bands. the Glasspack is also known for bringing a lot of national hard rock acts to the Rudyard Kipling. The Rudyard Kipling also hosts plays, political meetings, drag shows, and just about anything short of a metal show, and even a couple of those.
