What's good this weekend?: The Dismemberment Plan, "Twelfth Night," Farmers' Market

[caption id="attachment_21032" align="alignright" width="300"]Twelfth Night. Twelfth Night.[/caption] Saturday Plenty of bands reunite to cash in. Few can come back and release an album of new material that dovetails nicely with the rest of their discography like the Dismemberment Plan did with Uncanney Valley. The D.C. band makes its way up to Ottobar in support of the album, released in 2013, but we're sure they'll play plenty of favorites from Change and Emergency & I. William Friedkin's Sorcerer, about four criminals hiding out in South America to work for oil companies, is a vigorously physical film that never got the recognition it deserved. With Friedkin getting the rights to release a restored print and a new DVD and Blu-ray, the movie is about to get a second life, including a screening at the Charles Revival Series. Read our review before seeing the film. Iron Crow Theatre sought to find the queer side of Edgar Allan Poe, resulting in six short pieces collectively titled The Homo Poe Show. Read our story on the resulting show, which ends its run this weekend. Shakespeare has been recast in a lot of ways, but few productions have turned one of the Bard's works into a a Noël Coward comedy. Center Stage's production of Twelfth Night sometimes takes on the feel and comedic heights of old Laurel & Hardy bits. Read our review here. From the Short List: "The Gold Bar hosts a great bill of local indie acts Fell Band, Goblin Mold, and Little Rib. Another great Baltimore indie bill, with Raindeer and Modern Girls, goes down nearby at the Windup Space. Metro Gallery hosts a Balkan dance party with New York's Raya Brass Band and locals Balti Mare. The Dillinger Escape Plan headlines Baltimore Soundstage, with Odd Future-affiliated punk band Trash Talk opening. Laurette Hankins-O'Connell debuts her new cabaret act, full of songs from Broadway musicals, at the Cabaret at Germano's. Rams Head Live hosts Baby Loves Disco in the daytime for the kids, and Saved by the '90s with the Bayside Tigers at night for the nostalgic Gen Xers. The latest edition of Nu Fusion at the Sidebar features Lords of Bedlam, Hour of Reprisal, and Threatpoint. Don't miss: Chelsey Green and the Green Project play "classical soul" at An die Musik." Sunday We're pretty psyched spring is here and that damn windy, cold, snowy weather is behind us. And you know what that means? It's time for the Farmers' Market. Get your baskets or reusable bags and head down to buy some fresh food and handmade crafts. From the Short List: "Tin Pan Alley revivalists Three for a Song holds a release party for its latest CD at the Cabaret at Germano's. Scott Stapp bellows the grunge anthems of his solo career and his work with Creed at Baltimore Soundstage. Florida punk bands Vices and Head Creeps play the Charm City Art Space. Brooklyn avant-garde trio Jagged Spheres perform at An die Musik."
