In case you haven’t been paying attention and/or staying away from downtown, the Kentucky Derby Two-Week Festival is well underway, with various events happening in Waterfront Park, under the title of Kroger Fest-A-Ville, which some of us would call the Chow Wagon. On Saturday, April 26, the Portland alt rock band Everclear , which has been on the scene since 1993’s World Of Noise, will be the headliner for a Pegasus Pin-entry show. They’re pretty well into the Nostalgia tour phase of their career these days, with only one original member, lead singer Art Alexakis, left. Remember when?

Here’s “Wonderful”:

The Japanese instrumental rock band Mono made Louisville a regular stop for three years in a row back in 2006 -’08, then didn’t come back until now. They’ve recorded two albums since, Hymn To The Immortal Wind and For My Parents, with For My Parents being their first record in eight years not recorded by Steve Albini. As they are primarily a live band, dedicated to creating an unforgettable experience, the recording seems like a photo outtake of a movie – one tiny chunk of the live show. They’re playing Headliners on April 25, with Young Widows opening. Tickets are $10 plus $2.25 fee.

Diamond Pub will bring in The Terrapin Flyers with Melvin Seals and The Allmanacs with Johnny Neel on April 25 for a Tribute to The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers It’s a kind of musical genetic implant, adding former members of each defunct band to a tribute band, layering on a veneer of genuineness. It’s kind of like making love to a Marilyn Monroe look-alike who’s wearing one of Marilyn’s wigs and maybe a pair of her hose. If you are fan of either or both, then you know what you’ll get – the most famous tunes plus a large swath of lesser-known ones plus a surprise or two. Tickets are $12 adv./ $15 DoS.

It’s true that Expo 5 has All Time Low, but that’s a good thing if you are a pop punk fan. The Maryland quartet headlines a Terry Harper show at the 7th Street Road club on April 23, with Handguns and Man Overboard sharing the bill. They’re a hard-working, hard-touring bunch of guys, still supporting their 2012 album , Don’t Panic. You’re as likely to see them on the Warped Tour as in a club, so catch them in a club where the acoustics are better. Tickets for the show are $20.

Here’s the official video for “A Love Like War”:
