Sherwood Avenue is a pretty nondescript Highlands street: short, narrow and even narrower because of parked cars. But on Derby eve, it’s the center of the neighborhood. This yearly shindig, which started as a house party, is now a bumping affair — six bands, including Hot Brown Smackdown and Curio Key Club, a DJ, food trucks, featuring the Traveling Kitchen and the Louisville Dessert Truck, drinks and the iconic giant disco ball. It’s not all debauchery; this event benefits local charities.
