Songs for Conservation: A Livestream Benefit Concert
Donations accepted | 7-9:30 p.m.
We hope that as you’ve escaped into the woods for a solitary activity while social distancing, you’ve remembered how important it is that we protect our natural resources. This live-streamed concerned benefits the Kentucky Conservation Committee, which lobbies state government for the sake of the trees (and the water and the air and the… you get it). And, it has brought on some solid, Kentucky talent as well, including Ryan Anderson of Bendigo Fletcher and Ben Thornewill.

Virtual Bock Fest
Free | 1-2 p.m.
NuLu’s regular Bock Fest is not happening this year, but you can get a taste of the annual celebration of beer and goat racing on the Lift Up Lou Facebook page. There are few details for the event so far, but rest assured that it will involve a certain, malty, alcoholic beverage and a certain, horned mammal. Also, you can still pick up Bock beer from your favorite local brewery. Just call and ask if they have one for you.
