I’m sorry if this To Do is even lamer than usual but my life, aside from kids/work/laundry, is all about the H Street Festival. But I’m sure there must be something else going on, right??

Tonight is your chance to find a volunteer opportunity close to home. The Hill Center is hosting a Volunteer Happy Hour  from 6pm to 8pm. Have a drink and a snack and check out the many local organizations in need of your time, skills and enthusiasm. The event is free.

Friday night “America’s reigning old time fiddler” makes an appearance at The Corner Store. Bruce Molsky’s playing evoke a time most of us don’t actually recall but maybe wish we did. Regardless you don’t want to miss “the defining virtuoso of Appalachian music traditions.” The show is at 8pm and tickets are $15 in advance and $20  at the door.

A small but might troupe from The Globe Theatre in London recently landed on our shores and brought with them their lean, tightly-paced production of Hamlet.  Their eight-person Hamlet is currently running at the Folger Shakespeare Library. but only until September 22 so you had better get there quickly.

Saturday is the H Street Festival. 12pm – 7pm. 8th Street to 14th Street. 12 stages. countless bars. Crafters. Art cars. Adult games Joy of Motion dance floor. Zip Zap Circus USA at the  Atlas and of course the Baltimore Rock Opera (BROS.) We will discuss this in detail later but I’m just going to assume that we have Saturday covered.

Sunday is the final performance of Theater Alliance’s Reals. I still haven’t seen it so I hope to see you at the 2pm matinee. An original piece by a local playwright about real life people who act like superheros? I know. I’m disappointed in myself for almost missing it.

Ok that’s it. Sorry for the brevity. I’m sure I’ll see you on H Street on Saturday.
