Happening Saturday: Canton Irish Stroll, KAHLON, and more

-Canton Irish Stroll: Some people really can’t wait until St. Patrick’s Day to don oppressive shades of green and drown themselves in Guinness. Celebrate 10 days early and spend the evening crawling from bar to pub with bagpipe players and leprechauns, plus food and drink specials and special giveaways. Hopefully you’ll be over the hangover before the actual holiday. 1-9 p.m., Looney’s Pub Canton, 2900 O’Donnell St., (410) 675-9235, looneyspubmd.com, $17.50 (price to increase). (Maura Callahan)

-FIGHT for Transit Justice Dance Party: Time to wrack your brains for "red line" references in popular culture. The Red Line is the subway-to-surface transit line Maryland has been planning for a decade that would finally connect the MARC, Metro, and Light Rail lines. Unfortunately, Governor Hogan is thinking about canceling the project. A $7-$10 donation for the organization Red Line Now will get you into this costume ball hosted by Whitney Biennial and Ellen Degenerate (aka City Paper contributor Michael Farley). The theme is transit-themed films, so you might have to dig deep for ideas (sexy Thomas the Tank Engine?). There will be live music by Wet Brain, Bryan Edward Collins of The Soft Pink Truth, and other musical fabulosities yet unannounced. Mark Brown and Oren Mittman will DJ, and the organizers will be shooting video testimonials to send to the powers that be in Annapolis. 9 p.m., Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St., (410) 244-0899, themetrogallery.net, $7-$10. (Kaleigh Choi)
