Welcome to this week's The 411.  It's unusual to think of the Louisville Orchestra and Disco music in the same sentence but the orchestra will be taking on such classics as "I Will Survive" and "American Pie".  It's part of "Disco Days and Boogie Nights", on Saturday, January 23rd at the Palace Theatre.  The show starts at 8 p.m.  Tickets range from $20 to $60.  For more information call 800-431-3462. 

Southern Living Magazine is featuring a Louisville neighborhood in their January issue.  The Crescent Hill Neighborhood was named one of the top "Comeback Communities of the South".  The magazine features the Frankfort Avenue business corridor.  Make sure you pick up a copy of the issue. 

Many of you will have an extended weekend in observance of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday.  Here's a couple of events going on around Kentuckiana.
