Some party highlights

Hey party people! Your full lineup is coming soon, but I wanted to remind you of some standout options.

Friday, the Uptown Concert Series resumes on the 1100 block of Broadway. Big Woody and the Splinters perform 7-10 p.m.

There's a First Friday Block Party. One $10 cover gets you into the majority of Broadway hot spots.

Saturday, the Shanty Shack (4475 Warm Springs Road) hosts Bikefest beginning at 11 a.m. There's a bike wash noon-2 p.m. It's a fundraiser for Mark Tyron, a tree surgeon who suffered major injuries after a massive fall. The Grayhill Conspiracy and Blackberry Smoke perform.

Also on Saturday, H2O hosts a performance by Player/Kommander with DJ Coco. This show sounds really cool, especially if you're into DJ mash-ups. DJ Coco is from England and his mixes sound pretty sweet. Listen to his stuff here.

The best part of the H2O show? It's free. The club's at 6499 Veterans Parkway.
