Rollin’ on the River Craft Beer Festival
Saturday, June 8
Howard Steamboat Museum | 1101 E. Market Street, Jeffersonville, IN | $55 general admission / Designated Drivers free- 3-7 p.m. | 21 and over
Although there are some great beer festivals in the Louisville area, Fest of Ale in New Albany was always my favorite. Unfortunately, the 2019 edition of the festival would turn out to be its last. Now five years later, it’s back...sort of. Pearl Street Taphouse and Antz Marching, LLC, (founders of the Fest of Ale and former owner of Keg Liquors), present the inaugural Rollin’ on the River Craft Beer Festival at the Howard Steamboat Museum in Jeffersonville. Expect well over 100 craft beers from more than 65 different breweries, as well as fine wines, ciders, and seltzers. Attendees will also enjoy local food vendors, games, live music, swag, giveaways, and raffles. The expansive grounds boast beautiful views of the Ohio River, plenty of shade, room to roam, and is located just blocks from downtown Jeffersonville.

WFPK Presents: Laid Back Country Picker, Blind Feline, and Tyrone Cotton 
Friday, May 31
Headliners Music Hall | 1386 Lexington Rd. | headlinerslouisville. com | $15 adv/$20 day of show | 9 p.m. | 18 and over
With his huge mutton chops, white cowboy hat, and embroidered pearl snaps, singer/guitarist Laid Back Country Picker is quite the sight to behold. But add in his wife and drummer Honey, with her hair curlers, outdated house coat, thrift store sunglasses, and straight-faced dead stare, and you’ve got one of the oddest duos in country music history! And yes, there is a great backstory here. But then you hear them play and you realize LBCP’s music owes as much to AC/DC and Motorhead as it does Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. And then you realize how much fun they’re having with it all, and it’s infectious. Get in on the fun when they stop by Headliners May 31st. Also playing are Louisville Rock/Country/Psychedelia trio Blind Feline and Louisville blues legend Tyrone Cotton.
