5 things to do in Louisville this weekend (1/8)


7th Annual Jam for a Cure
$10; 7:30 p.m.
Well, the holidays are over, and now it’s cold as hell outside, but you can party away the winter blues at Headliners this weekend with a benefit concert. All proceeds go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Live musical acts include V-Groove, Danny Flanigan and the Rain Chorus, John Mann, The Greg Foresman Band and a tribute to Tim Krekel.

What is American Culture?
Free; 7:30 p.m.
This musical project seeks to transcend cultural and national barriers by creating connections using the universal language of music. The Juilliard School’s William Harvey Group will be joined by 1200, Nick. B and members of the Louisville Orchestra. Cher Von and Tyler Dipplod will also perform.


91.9 WFPK 20th Anniversary Celebration
The Kentucky Center (Brown Theater)
Tickets start at $25; 8 p.m.
91.9 WFPK, Louisville’s champion of the airwaves, is turning 20. So, to celebrate, they decided to throw a little shindig with some of their favorite artists such as Ben Sollee, Wax Fang, Twin Limb,  Howell Dawdy and members of Houndmouth. There will also be A Tribute to Tim Krekel with Greg Foresman, Danny Flanigan and John Mann. Check out the VIP tickets to get a 20th Anniversary t-shirt and admission to the afterparty with WFPK Night Visions hosts OK Deejays and DJ Sam Sneed and cake!

Midnights at Baxter: ‘The Thing’
Baxter Avenue Theater
11:55 p.m.
“The Thing” by John Carpenter might just be the perfect midnight movie, especially as the cold tightens its grip around the city’s neck. This claustrophobic film is full of some delicious gore (all practical effects) and some great moments of revolting terror as The Thing assimilates the trapped researchers of this Antarctic expedition.


Bottomless Mimosas with Frisky Frolics
Roux (Louisville)
No Cover; 10 a.m.
Not too many things can warm your bones in this winter weather, but bottomless mimosas with your Sunday brunch might do the trick. Roux, the New Orleans-inspired restaurant, will be breaking out a special brunch menu this weekend that includes $10 Bottomless Mimosas and plenty of cajun-inspired breakfast dishes. There will also be live music by Rick Quisol and the Frisky Frolics.
