Ace Picks: Lexington KY Calendar Oct 18 thru October 25

Share


Welcome to Homecoming weekend in Lexington, Kentucky and Ace’s highly curated and selective list of Ace Picks for the next eight days in the beautiful bluegrass (delivered to your inbox every Thursday morning via the Ace e-dition click here to subscribe).

Movies now playing in Lexington, Kentucky  (click through for Ace Reviews) include: Arbitrage, The Master, and Taken 2. Not that you’ll have time.

THURSDAY OCTOBER 18, 2012

Thursday Night Live is winding down soon. Don’t miss tonight’s band the Payback. 

Also tonight, Jason Howard signs A Few Honest Words: The Kentucky Roots of Popular Music. Click to read Heather C. Watson’s recap of last weekend’s Southern Festival of Books, including a sterling appearance by Jason with Naomi Judd.

Oh My Me rounds out the evening at the Green Lantern.

FRIDAY OCTOBER 19, 2012

You don’t have to be able to pronounce it to attend this group art exhibit (at the corner of Loudon and Maple). Just go. 100 artists, each contributing two pieces.

Factor in the UK Homecoming Parade when driving downtown tonight.

SATURDAY OCTOBER 20, 2012

It might get loud. Drive By Truckers at Buster’s and Blocktoberfest at Al’s Bar.

UK Homecoming and Keeneland on the same day require judicious traffic planning.

Live at Birdland tonight at UK’s Singletary Center.

 

SUNDAY OCTOBER 21, 2012

Have you been to the Friends of the Library Book Sale? It’s practically stealing — but it isn’t. And it benefits a great cause.

Election politics got you down? For a lighter touch, Capitol Steps at UK’s Singletary Center.

MONDAY OCTOBER 22, 2012

You can’t be ready for Halloween, much less Day of the Dead, without seeing Bob Morgan’s show at the Living Arts and Science Center.

TUESDAY OCTOBER 23, 2012

Shipley makes a sandwich.

Lexington’s growing to embrace a burgeoning food truck culture (not without controversy), but pop-up restaurants are still a new idea. Chef Johnny Shipley will be serving up Korean pancakes for lunch all week at Institute 193, as a fundraiser for the non profit — a tasty, tasty fundraiser.

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 24, 2012

Sports fans have two options tonight: UK’s Blue White Game and ESPN’s John Brenkus talk at UK’s Memorial Hall.

THURSDAY OCTOBER 25

If there’s two things we love at Ace, it’s reading and eating. International Eating and Reading night at the Carnegie Center seems like the perfect marriage of the two.

Comedian Brian Regan will perform at UK’s Singletary Center.

And last, but not least, Idiot Glee at Al’s Bar. (Click for a 2010 Ace coverstory.)
