Dirty Dough - Louisville, Kentucky Grand Opening 12905 Shelbyville Rd. No cover | 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. This cookie chain will open its first location in the 502.

Lipstick Wars Poetry Slam – Juneteenth Edition Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts Free | 7-10 p.m. Slam poetry is a unique and powerful art form. If you’ve never seen it live, now’s your chance.

Emo Night w/ Matty Mullins - 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY (21+) Losers 812 (1005 W. Market St., Jeffersonville, IN) Free | 9 p.m. This writer’s favorite local bar (read about its origins and connections to Knocked Loose) will celebrate its one-year anniversary with a night of fun throwback hits.


Paperview Zinefest Portland Museum Free | Noon-5 p.m. Learn all the ins and outs of zine-making and enjoy free music from PAKG, Emily Ravenscraft, Sleepy Anderson and more.

Late Night Shakes Central Park Free | 10:30-11 p.m. A Shakespeare play not written by Shakespeare (nor nearly as long as his real shows) — this one’s all made up, thanks to Louisville Improvisors. You can catch a real Shakespeare show (“Macbeth”) right beforehand, though.
