Happening Saturday: Pangea Fest, Made In Baltimore Pop-Up Shop, and more

-Pangea Fest: Many active participants and entire scenes in Baltimore’s creative community are overlooked or deliberately ignored by media and promoters, reinforcing the silos that have long existed. Hosted by City Paper contributor D Watkins and performer Miz Jaxxxn, Pangea Fest intends to celebrate the unity of music and arts of Baltimore and beyond with headlining performances by Jean Grae and Blaqstarr and live shows curated by a variety of collectives and community incubators, plus live art, vendors, zines, and an afterparty at The Crown. 1-10 p.m., The Ynot Lot, 4 W. North Ave., pangeafestbmore.splashthat.com, $15. (Maura Callahan)

-Weber's Farm Peach Festival: August brings Baltimore not only extra heat and humidity but also peak peach season. Eating peaches—raw, baked, or grilled for extra flavor on top of prosciutto bruschetta, summer salad, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream—is a brief, seasonal privilege we anticipate all year long. To celebrate this annual opportunity, Weber's Cider Mill Farm is hosting a Peach Festival. It's a perfect place to indulge your peach obsession and share your family recipes, from breakfast to pie, cake, ice cream, sundae, and slush, with fellow peach fans to win the recipe contest. Even if you're not a peach lover, no need to feel left out—you can enjoy the weather out in the green fields and join fun and not particularly peach-themed stuff, such as small art shows, food vendors, crafts for kids, and barnyard activities like mini-tractor ride or duck races. 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Weber's Cider Mill Farm, 2526 Proctor Lane, (410) 668-4488, weberscidermillfarm.com, adults $8 and kids (ages 2-12) $5 for breakfast, ticket price varies for barnyard activities.

-Made In Baltimore Pop-Up Shop: Introducing the Industrial Arts Collective, a new network for Baltimore-based artisans, makers, hackers, designers, artists, teachers, manufacturers and learners. Sponsored by the Baltimore Development Corporation and the Baltimore Office for Promotion of the Arts, architect and author ("Guerrilla Furniture Design") Will Holman hopes to connect people to build a new manufacturing base in Baltimore, in collaboration with the Station North Arts and Entertainment, Inc., the Station North Tool Library, and in-kind donors including Frank's Pallets, Indigo Ink, Details Deconstruction and WYPR. Holman says the small shop is going to grow into something bigger and much more ambitious over the next year to eighteen months. Stop by the launch party for over 40 vendors and local beer. Opening party 7-10 p.m., Pop Up Shop open through Sept. 26, 16 W. North Ave., wemakebaltimore.com. (Edward Ericson Jr.)

-From the Short List: Pimlico Race Course hosts the EDM-heavy Moonrise Festival this weekend, kicking off tonight with Bassnectar, Nadastrom, Big Gigantic, Zomboy, and dozens more. California rap duo Audio Push, who evolved from the Jerkin' scene to become one of the more interesting rap groups on the West Coast, performs at Baltimore Soundstage with Snow Tha Product, Cypher Clique, and more. Alive '75 pays tribute to Kiss at Rams Head Live with Rush cover band kRUSH. One of Baltimore indie rock's more powerful live acts, Us And Us Only, plays the Metro Gallery with Teen Suicide and Amanda Glasser. The 2015 Summer Spirit Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion features a killer lineup of soul music from the inimitable Erykah Badu, Anthony Hamilton, Floetry, Estelle, and more. Sublime With Rome, the nasty little cash grab featuring only one member of the popular '90s band Sublime, headlines Pier Six Pavilion with Rebelution, Pepper, and Mickey Avalon. Tonight the Ottobar is headlined by Brazilian Girls, who are neither Brazilian nor all women . . . discuss. Don't miss: British boy-band phenomenon One Direction is not a guilty pleasure, has an absurdly high number of great pop/rock songs on its four blockbuster albums, and is headlining M&T Bank Stadium tonight.
