Happening Saturday: Baltimore Rhythm Festival, U+N Fest 4

-Baltimore Rhythm Festival: When’s the last time you put on your dancing shoes and let loose? Months ago? This morning in the shower? Either way, that’s too long. Revive (or discover) your inner rhythm and get energized by local dance groups and bands including The War and Treaty, and Elikeh. If you don’t know your right foot from your left hand, don’t worry: Dance masters will be leading various workshops all day. Noon-10 p.m., Lovely Lane United Methodist Church, 2200 St. Paul St., baltimorerhythmfest.org, $10-$15. (Maura Callahan)

-U+N Fest 4: This two-day festival and the best argument that guitar music ain't dead returns. Friday night includes New Brunswick's Screaming Females, probably the best rock band going right now (frontperson Marissa Paternoster is the only guitar hero that matters), DC political surf punk Priests who've really turned into a theatrical force on stage lately, slaves to the loud-quiet-loud format Wing Dam and Post Pink, featuring members of the dearly departed Crimson Wave, whose demo from this year was excellent and really didn't feel like a demo at all, you know? Saturday there's power poppers Expert Alterations, Angie Dust (a collaboration between members of Big Mouth and Angel Du$t), and most importantly, the last time you'll ever get to see Roomrunner. No really, this is it. They're calling it quits. It will be a bittersweet party. 7 p.m., The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., (410) 662-0069, theottobar.com, $13 per night, $25 for a two-day pass.
