San Franciscan John Vanderslice knows a thing or two about crafting great pop songs: He honed his singing, songwriting and guitar-slinging skills in San Francisco faves MK Ultra, and has recorded dozens of brilliant bands (Spoon, Death Cab for Cutie) at his Tiny Telephone studio. After five solo CDs of smart, sassy songs, his unique brand of ’70s-style power pop, laced with dark humor, has won over crowds from coast to coast. Monday, May 1, at Satellite Ballroom. $8-10, 8pm. 1427 University Ave. 977-3697.

It’s that season again. Time to break out the seersucker and bourbon-filled flask for the year’s must-see-and-be-seen event: the Foxfield Races, on Saturday, April 29. Bring the cooler, flip up your collar and prepare to get toasty with the rest of the ’ville’s budding bourgeoisie. Oh—there will be some horses running around a track, too. Foxfield Race Course, Barracks Road. $35, 11am. 293-9501. www.foxfieldraces.com.

Whether he’s pushing pudding, writing a TV sitcom, acting, or talking to kids, Bill Cosby’s trademark low-key humor has always cast him more as a storyteller than a jokester. For four decades, Bill Cosby has provided gentle insight into the ongoing skirmishes between parents and children, men and women. Although he has recently raised some hackles with his political take on hip-hop culture, we’re anticipating this show will be more
Dr. Huxtable, less Alan Keyes. Appearing at the Paramount on Saturday, April 29, for two sold-out shows, 5 & 8pm. 979-1333. 215 E. Main St. www.theparamount.net.

See ’em shake their collective thing. Belly Souk, Charlottesville’s belly dance troupe, performs the Middle Eastern art form in full exotic regalia. Look for jingly hip scarves, belly chains and lots of flashy jewelry (and make sure to leave your stick-figure body prejudices at the door). Saturday, April 29, at Gravity Lounge. $8-12 , 2pm. 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
