Barbecue & Hops to Benefit The Olmsted Parks Conservancy Feast BBQ Free; 5 p.m. While you’re riding a trolley around downtown during the First Friday Trolley Hop, stop by the parking lot of Feast BBQ where they will have delicious barbecue, and Akasha Brewing Company will supply the beer. Proceeds from the event benefit The Olmsted Parks Conservancy.


Eons D & Jordan Jetson Release Show Galaxie (Outerspace) $5; 8 p.m. Hip-hop artists Eons D and Jordan Jetson just finished the final touches on their recent collaboration. To celebrate it’s release this weekend, they’re throwing a party at Galaxie with live performances by Ali, ShadowPact, Rmllw2llz and Dom B. Neon River Music Festival Waterfront Park (Festival Plaza) $20-$35 Don’t spend your weekend dancing in a crowded bar where you can’t even bust out your best moves. Head to the Waterfront where you can dance your ass off at this EDM (or Electronic Dance Music) festival. Artists performing include K Theory, Riot Ten, Dustin Que, DJxNightmare, ODESKi, Gitsum, DJ K-Dogg, Panzer, CROWE and Sather Bass.


Three Points CycLOUvia Goss Avenue, Logan Street and Shelby Street Free; 2 p.m. Grab your bicycle and head toward Three Points (the area between Germantown, Schnitzelburg and Shelby Park) for a community bike ride. Riders will take a circular path of closed off roads that will allow riders to see these storied, historic Louisville neighborhoods from a more engaging perspective than you would see from the car window. It's a chance to get outside, do a little exercise and explore your city with your neighbors.

Derby City Sisters: State Fair Bingo Play $5; 7:30 p.m. The Derby City Sisters, a group of “radical fun loving [drag queen] Nuns,” are hosting a bingo night at Play, complete with prizes, a corn dog eating contest and more. This isn’t your grandmother’s bingo night, although she is welcome to come. And if you want an extra six bingo cards, bring a non-perishable food or personal care item for the AIDS Interfaith Ministries of Kentuckiana's food pantry.
