Welcome to this week's Ace Picks Events Calendar for Lexington, Kentucky — Ace’s highly curated and selective to do list for the next eight days in the bluegrass (also delivered to your inbox every Thursday morning via the Ace e-dition click here to subscribe.) THURSDAY June 19, 2014 The Johnson Brothers will play tonight's Thursday Night Live. FRIDAY June 20, 2014 When is Gallery Hop?! Tonight is the only one this summer. Don't miss the annual rainbarrel auction at Cheapside, and Kevin Nance's photography exhibit at the Hunt-Morgan House. Nance, who now lives in Chicago, is best known to Lexington art lovers as a longtime Herald-Leader arts writer. Allow for plenty of time to walk tonight's Hop route as you'll want to stop in at the Maserati Mingle on the Courthouse square (new Courthouse, not the old Courthouse... the rainbarrel auction will be at the old Courthouse/ Cheapside square). Lavell Crawford performs this weekend at Comedy Off Broadway. Breaking Bad fans, however, will always know him as Saul Goodman's personal bodyguard, Huell Babineaux. The Free Friday Flick tonight at Jacobson Park is Sherman and Mr. Peabody. SATURDAY June 21, 2014 The day kicks off with United Way's annual 5k on the Runway, held at Bluegrass Airport. UK Opera Theater presents the second and final weekend of It's a Grand Night for Singing at the Singletary Center, and the annual Give Into the Groove fundraiser happens at the ballpark. SUNDAY June 22, 2014 Road trippers might enjoy a trek to Shakertown for the Antiques Show. Do you know where you're going to? Today's film at the Lyric Theater is Mahogany. Diana Ross. Billy Dee Williams. Enough said. MONDAY June 23, 2014 Tonight's Woodsongs is NRBQ and Sundy Best. TUESDAY June 24, 2014 Woodsongs usually doesn't happen on a Tuesday, but this week's programming is twice as nice, with a second show on Tuesday featuring Judy Collins and Ari Hest. Lexington's source for free advance movie screenings this summer? Ace has your sneak peek tonight with Obvious Child. If you plan to go, you'll need to be following Ace on facebook.

WEDNESDAY June 25, 2014 For kids today, Monsters University is the movie at the Farish Theater, inside Lexington's Public Library. Tonight's summer classic movie at the Kentucky Theatre is To Catch a Thief. My Brother's Keeper will perform at Red Barn Radio.
