5 Things To Do This Weekend in Louisville (12/16)

FRIDAY

Quiet Hollers – Hollerday Yuletide Food Drive
Headliners
$10  |  9 p.m.
Local cool guys (and band) Quiet Hollers is hosting a kick-ass food drive, and they want you to come party with them. It’s a night of live music with acts by them, Sun Seeker and Shadowpact. The event also doubles as a “foodraiser” for the Dare to Care Food Bank, so bring any canned goods or non-perishables you can spare.

Tristen Brooke, Psychohawk, Brother Wolves (special guest Ron Whitehead)
New Vintage
$5  |  8 p.m.
Outlaw poet and guest poetry editor for this year’s Literary LEO, Ron Whitehead, will kick off this concert. That should be reason enough to go, but, in case you need more, music will be by the soulful singer Tristen Brooke, PsychoHawk (which “will take flight on stage for the first time”) and Brother Wolves.

Punk Rock Christmas
Kaiju
Free with donation  |  9 p.m.
Entry to this concert featuring “the rowdiest bands in town” is free if you bring a canned good or book. So scour your pantry, or dusty bookshelf, and come get into the spirit of Punk Rock Christmas with bands Boner City, Dick Titty Blood Punch and Crooked Beat Refuge.

SATURDAY

Fleur De Flea Vintage Urban Market & 3rd Winter Soul Spit
Tim Faulkner Gallery
Free  |  10 a.m. & 7 p.m.
Spend your whole Saturday at Tim Faulkner Gallery this weekend, starting with a little gift shopping at the Fleur De Flea Holiday Market, where there will be vintage clothing, books, records and antiques from over 75 local and national vendors. And after you lug your haul home, be sure to come back for the 3rd Winter Soul Spit. A poetry slam during which 15 poets from all over the country will compete for a cash prize of over $1,300.

Belsnickel Bazaar
Louis’s “The Ton”
Free  |  6 p.m.
Belsnickel, the counter-Claus who punishes naughty children with a switch, is the representative for this gathering of talented Louisville artists. If you are looking for that perfect eccentric gift for that loveable oddball in your life (or if you’re naughty and just want to buy cool works of art for yourself), then head to this holiday bazaar in Butchertown.
