Happening Sunday: School of Rock, Hans Condor, and more

-Hans Condor, Drag Sounds, DaikonDaikon: Some say rock 'n' roll is dead. But if that’s true, Hans Condor is bringing it back to life. At its shows, the unruly Nashville trio infuses gritty, riff- and shout-heavy rock with fist-pumping, beer-chugging, amp-busting, and a fair amount of bodily fluids. And really, raucous rock shows never get old, and certainly never die. 9:30 p.m., Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., (410) 662-0069, theottobar.com, $8. (Maura Callahan)

-School of Rock Baltimore: The night after local musicians Dan Deacon and Future Islands play Pier Six, Baltimore's School of Rock will honor them and other local and formerly local bands, like Celebration and Animal Collective, with a set of cover tunes at the Hard Rock Cafe in the Inner Harbor. The "finals" of School of Rock, which includes musicians from 7 to 60 years old, will feature an all-female beginners band and sets of the best of David Bowie and psychedelic rock tunes. This will be the final concert of the year from the Woodberry-based school, which has been teaching music to the public for almost a decade. Playing at the Hard Rock for your finals isn't a bad deal. Rawk out. 2-8 p.m., Hard Rock Cafe Baltimore, 601 E. Pratt St., (410) 347-7625, hardrock.com/cafes/baltimore, free. (J.M. Giordano)

-From the Short List: The Walking Guys, an acoustic songwriting collective that is currently walking from Maine to Tennessee, stops through Baltimore on their travels to perform at The Cabaret at Germano’s. Saint Asonia, a post-grunge supergroup featuring members of Three Days Grace and Staind, headlines Baltimore Soundstage. Local jazz band The Paul Soroka Power Trio performs at the Maryland State Fair. Don't miss: The Punk Rock Revival at Fish Head Cantina includes The Huntingtons, a Baltimore band that originally formed in 1993, along with Darlington, Brian Hardy, Hot Tub Vomit, Captain Suckerpunch, and more.
