`Redneck Woman'

Dig out the cowboy boots -- and your women-power T-shirt. Gretchen "Redneck Woman" Wilson performs Sunday afternoon at Parrot Island at Bohager's. Crazy Horse and Rob Byer are billed as well. Doors open at 1 p.m.

Tickets are free -- but there is a catch. You can either win them from WPOC or go to Parrot Island's Web site (www.parrot, print out a voucher, take it to Parrot Island and give it to a bartender today, tomorrow or Saturday to get a ticket. (Also, there's a two-drink minimum, and a limit of one ticket per person.) Tickets must be picked up from Parrot Island by Saturday.

Parrot Island is at 701 S. Eden St. For more information, call 410-563-7220 or visit the Web site.

Jamming and munching

Need something to celebrate? How about Jamaican Independence Day? Orlando Phillips and (possibly) other reggae bands will mark the occasion by playing tomorrow at the Sly Fox Pub in Annapolis. Caribbean food and drink -- beef and chicken kebabs, mahi-mahi, conch chowder and Red Stripe beer -- will be on the menu.

The Sly Fox Pub is at 7 Church Circle in Annapolis. Live music will start at noon and go until midnight. Call 443-482-9000.

Get your Irish up

Sing along or dance when Rossnareen, a local Irish band, plays at Mick O'Shea's Friday and Saturday. The group does some traditional music (for the die-hard Irish dancers) and some more contemporary tunes as well.

Don't know any Irish songs? Fear not, Rossnareen always does a round of "What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor." -- and all the words you need to know are in the song's title. The band is scheduled to go on at 9 p.m. There is no cover charge.

Mick O'Shea's Irish Pub is at 328 N. Charles St. Call 410-539-7504.
