5 Things To Do This Weekend in Louisville (11/18)

FRIDAY

Future is Female (through May) 21c Museum Hotel Free  |  All day We may have missed the oppurtunity to elect the first female president in U.S. history, but damn we got close! And if this art show is any indication, the future is still female. So explore that future with this collection of contemporary feminist art with works that tackle themes of “portraiture, politics, and the environment.”

Coat Check Coat Drive Kaiju $5  |  8 p.m. Refugees and victimized women have difficult times ahead of them, and they need your help. So start by donating winter coats at this coat drive for Kentucky Refugee Ministries and the Center for Women and Families. And to thank you for your efforts, Kaiju is hosting a show with Season at Sea, Joann + The Dakota, White Crosses and DJs McKinley Moore, Sam Sneed and Duffy.

SATURDAY

Little Heart Records Anniversary Spectacular! Cure Lounge Free  |  12 p.m. Little Heart Records got its name from founder Bryan Puckett, who suffered from a congenital heart defect. Puckett passed away this year, but the heartbeat of his record company is still strong. Come celebrate the 11th anniversary of this local music powerhouse, with performances by 14 bands including Greyhaven, Shadowpact, Dick Titty Blood Punch and more.

4K Restored “Ran” Screening Speed Museum $9  |  Times vary This beautifully-shot epic is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” by legendary director Akira Kurosawa. And if any movie was ever deserving of a ultra-high-definition restoration, it was this one. The film is filled with stunning landscapes and well-constructed scenes depicting life and war in feudal Japan.

SUNDAY

Queersgiving Gallery K Free  |  12 p.m. Thanksgiving for members of the LGBTQ community can be difficult (especially this year). Thankfully, the Kentucky Health Justice Network is hosting a Queer Potluck for anyone who wants to have a meal with the family they chose, in a safe space. So “Bring a dish, bring a friend, bring yerself!”
