Happening Saturday: Boundary Block Party, Fells Point Farmers Market Opening Day, and more

-As we've written elsewhere, there are lots of events planned to help heal Baltimore communities and continue the progress made during the #BaltimoreUprising. There's a ton of stuff happening today. See the full list here. (Brandon Weigel)

-Record + Tape Meet: Record Store Day has come and gone and many are still hungry for more additions to their outdated music-format collections. Luckily, you can pick up vinyl and tapes from regional distributors, musicians, individual collectors, and labels like Llamadon Collective, Girl Problem Records, and ARAÇÁ RECS while filling up on barbecue, getting down to cassette-tape DJ sets, and meeting friendly faces in the DIY music scene. 1 p.m., The Bell Foundry, 1539 N. Calvert St., llamadon.com, free. (Maura Callahan)

-Fells Point Farmers Market Opening Day: Like pretty much everything, the opening day of the Fells Point Farmers Market was postponed last week. For seven more days, we had to wait to walk along the waterfront while inspecting strawberries, filling bags with oversized sweet potatoes, and touching without buying. But now we can once again start our Saturdays by stocking our fridges with fresh food and filling our homes with handmade crafts from dozens of local vendors including Jukai Juices, Atwaters Bakery, Sausage Barons, and Linganore Wine Cellars. Free tomato and basil starter plants will be available on opening day—no starter cheese, unfortunately. You have to find your own mozzarella for that caprese. 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Broadway and Thames Street, fellspointfarmers.com, free. (Maura Callahan)

-From the Short List: Nashville singer-songwriter Andrew Ripp performs at Eutaw Place. Once-promising and now-mildly-disappointing Alabama rapper Yelawolf headlines Baltimore Soundstage. George Gray and the Elvis Experience pay tribute to every era of Elvis Presley’s career at the Hippodrome. The UKG Social, a night of house and garage at The Depot, features Brother Pinch, DJ Nav, and more. Thomas Rhett, of the wonderfully breezy, Bee Gees-inspired country radio hit ‘Make Me Wanna,’ opens for Florida Georgia Line at Merriweather Post Pavilion. Rams Head Live kicks off Preakness week with a concert featuring The Cadillac Three. Colorado alt-country band Drag The River plays the Ottobar. The Chesapeake Roots Festival presents an evening of blues with The Linwood Taylor Band and the Ruben Montoya Band at the 8x10. R&B star Ciara, who released her sixth album, “Jackie,” this week, headlines The Fillmore Silver Spring. Don't miss: The Crown celebrates Halloween in May, for some reason, with a costume party featuring music from Bernard Herman, Sofia Reta, and The Coincidental Hour. (Al Shipley)
