FRIDAY, June 28

FAT Friday Trolly Hop!
Frankfort Avenue
No cover  |  6-10 p.m.
Frankfort Avenue might seem like it is something out of “Mayberry R.F.D.” Not during FAT Friday Trolly Hop! Explore the shopping and dining destinations of Frankfort Avenue via free trolley rides to various local businesses. West Sixth Brewing is sponsoring this month’s trolley hop with drink offerings and specials at 14 stops, including $3 West Sixth Cerveza and Porter cans plus live “gypsy jazz” at Vint coffee shop and $8 IPAs and appetizers at the Frankfort Ave. Beer Depot.


Treat Yo Self: a ‘Parks and Recreation’ Party
Southwest Louisville Free Public Library
Free  |  2-4 p.m.
If you’re a fan of the NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation,” treat yo’ self with an event devoted to celebrating cult classic. Watch an episode of the show, flex your Pawnee knowledge with trivia and eat waffles straight from JJ’s Diner. It’s rumored that activities will be provided by Entertainment 720, so you know they’ll be wild. This event is for adults and teenagers ages 14 and up.

The Queens of Funk and Soul Concert
Shelby Park
Free  |  3 p.m.
Louisville power pipes legend LaVon Fisher-Wilson, who has appeared on Broadway in “Chicago” and “Newsies,” is putting on a concert in Louisville with fellow diva performers The Vonettes. They’ll sing tributes to the greats: Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, Chaka Khan and more.

White Reaper
Headliners Music Hall
$17-$20  |  8:30 p.m.
For the last half decade, White Reaper has twisted and tweaked their hook-heavy garage rock in different directions, but they’ve always had this visceral prowess and no-frills attitude that’s translated into a big, sweeping and magnetic sound. This is the Louisville band’s last hometown show before they play Bourbon & Beyond in September. Twen and Buddy Crime open.

SUNDAY, June 30

Crafty Cat Market Weekend
Purrfect Day Cat Cafe
$12  |  Noon-6 p.m.
