5 things to do this weekend in Louisville (7/21)


The Tillers
Bicentennial Park
Free  |  6:30 p.m.
Part of the Bicentennial Park Summer Concert Series, The Tillers — a bluegrass-leaning roots band — continue this Friday after-work series of concerts in New Albany at Spring and Pearl streets,. Braving the heat to see this band is worth it.—Scott Recker


The Dark Market
Haymarket Whiskey Bar
Free  |  6-11 p.m.
The Dark Market returns for a hot summer edition. Twelve unique and freaky vendors will keep you cool with their creepy art and oddities. The summer edition includes returning local favorites Ryan Case, Yoko Molotov and Howell’s Oddities along with new creepers Whitney Carpenter, Valentine Hassen and more. Two DJs, Thulsa Goon and Talamasca, will be spinning a sensational summer soundtrack to set the mood.—J. Cobb

Central Park
Free  |  *6:30 p.m.-Midnight
You can binge watch whatever show on Netflix anytime, anywhere… But in Louisville, we are one of the fortunate few cities where you can binge watch Shakespeare — live. This time it is “Much Ado About Nothing” and “Julius Caesar.”—staff

*[Editor’s Note: “Richard II”was initially scheduled to kick off Bard-A-Thon at 4:30 p.m., but has been cancelled. The new start time is 6:30 p.m.]

NuLu Summer Luau
East Market Street
Free  |  1 p.m.
It’s going to be hot like the tropics, so might as well embrace the full lifestyle… Jimmy Buffet tuxedo and all… Saturday afternoon, NuLu will break into full Hawaiian luau, including: tropical drink and limbo contests (although the success of one will probably be to the detriment of the other), a pig roast at the Green Building, “Surf Music” and an afterparty till midnight. Oh, and you are sure to get lei’d, which is nice.—Aaron Yarmuth

Corey Feldman & The Angels
Trixie’s Entertainment Complex
$16-$75  |  8 p.m.
Former chid movie star Corey Feldman and his band bring their synth-rock to town. Read our Q&A with Feldman from last week’s print issue.—Scott Recker
