Aug. 22-24: Fields Festival
The inaugural festival features a host of Baltimore's DIY musicians, performance artists and comedians. With over 60 acts (including Dan Deacon, pictured, and Flock of Dimes) and three days of camping included with the ticket price, Fields is an economical, eccentric alternative to some of the summer's bloated and corporatized music festivals. Ramblewood Campgrounds, 2564 Silver Road, Darlington. 3 p.m. Weekend passes: $65 in advance, $85 at the gate; no single-day passes. fieldsfestival.com.

If you like Baltimore, beer and beer brewed in Baltimore — and why would you be reading this blog if you didn't? — the above trailer for Nick Kovacic's new documentary, "Brewmore | Baltimore," should be of interest.
The 65-minute film looks at the history of the beer industry, both nationally and locally, through a Baltimore lens. (One of the movie's main sources is Rob Kasper, the former Sun writer.) Judging from the trailer, it also seems up-to-date with interviews with owners of local breweries, including Stillwater Artisanal Ales, Union Craft Brewing, The Brewer's Art and home-brewers.
On March 20, Kovacic and his video production company Digital Cave will host a showcase night at the Maryland Institute College of Art's Brown Center. Local beer will be served and Baltimore singer-songwriter Caleb Stine will perform before the film is shown at 7:45 p.m. Tickets, $8-$16, went on sale today.
