Derby in the City at American-Statesman West Parking Lot. If live music (by mostly local bands) and watching the Kentucky Derby with a mint julep in hand is your idea of a sweet Saturday in early May, this one has you covered. Shakey Graves was a late cancellation, but Wild Child has been added as the headliner of a bill that also includes Leftover Salmon, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, Whiskey Shivers, Clyde & Clem’s Whiskey Business and Sour Bridges. There’s a break for the Derby at 5 p.m., and perhaps a pause later to watch the bats depart from beneath the Congress Avenue bridge. $25 general admission, $100 VIP. 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. 305 S. Congress Ave. derbyinthecity.com. — P.B.
