It’s hard to believe the summer solstice is already behind us and we’re cruising toward another seasonal milestone, the 4th of July. Here’s how to make these weeks count.

1. Uke Can Do It! Or at least uke can try. Hanna Mathey and Maria Carrelli bring a kid-centric Ukulele workshop to Folk School Coffee Parlor in Ludlow, Kentucky. BYOI (Bring your own instrument). Monday, June 26 from 6–7 p.m. ($25). Adults get their chance July 10, 17, and 24 ($25 per class or all three for $50).

2. Eclectic indie-rocker Marshall Crenshaw swings into Southgate House Revival on Thursday, June 29, with Los Straightjackets and special guests Psychodots.

3. If the words “sour beer” seem contradictory, then you’ll want to Explore the Sour Side of Beer with the experts at Rivertown Brewery on Tuesday, June 27. Learn about the techniques and ingredients (like wild yeast and bacteria) that give sour beers their tart flavor profile.

4. Speaking of beer, the Over-the Rhine Museum presents a lecture at St. Francis Seraph Church on Vine Street in OTR that sounds downright irresistible: Under-the-Rhine: Tales of Beers, Bones, and Bathrooms.
