The RANT benefitting Uplands Peak Sanctuary New Vintage 7:30 p.m. Now that Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee, I’m sure many of you have a lot to get off your chest. But don’t waste your energy venting at home. Head to The New Vintage where you can get on stage and rant, sing, read a poem or do just about whatever you want for $2 a minute, and proceeds will benefit the Uplands PEAK Sanctuary for neglected farm animals.


SIN Post Derby Party Down Night Over the 9 Free with RSVP; 10 p.m. For all of you lovely service industry workers out there, who endured the hell that is Derby time, this (and hopefully a fat check) is your reward. Complimentary food from Over the 9, drinks specials and live music by Jack Holiday and the Westerners, Powell and the Thumps. Just make sure to RSVP on Do502.com to get in for free.

Tony! Toni! Tone! Fourth Street Live! 8 p.m. Tony! Toni! Tone! will be playing a free concert at Fourth Street Live! this Friday as part of the District Rhythms free concert series.

Bernie Sanders Fundraiser Concert Lydia House 8 p.m. Barring some sort of catastrophe, Bernie Sanders probably won’t be the Democratic nominee. But the man is still speaking truth to power and he needs your support to do that all the way to the DNC convention. And even if you’ve given up on his presidential bid, this is still a chance to meet some like minded people and hear some great music. The night starts with some Talking Heads vinyl at 8 p.m. and live music by Echolalia, Spicer and Soft Self Portraits starts at 10 p.m. Kryumption – Pink Door Flashback Concert Kaiju (bar) 10:30 p.m. In honor of the near legendary dance club The Pink Door, Kaiju bar is hosting a throwback party to pay tribute to owners Heather and Brian Werle. Original Pink Door DJs Lil’ Cory, Morris Koad, Ben Alan, Lady Carol and Unkle Funk will be on hand to take you back in time to a mythical land of dance club ecstasy.
