FRIDAY

LIVE MUSIC AT LEXINGTON MARKET: Whether you've got the day off or you're simply looking for an escape from the office, Lexington Market, 400 W. Lexington St., delivers plenty of afternoon diversions.

Call 410-685-6169 or go to lexingtonmarket.com.

MICHAEL JACKSON DANCE PARTY: Honor the King of Pop with your best moonwalk and anti-gravity leans as DJ Mills and Craig Boarman play Jackson's hits all night at Fletcher's, 701 S. Bond St. Videos will also play. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $6 after 10:30 p.m. Go to missiontix.com.

DAVID ALAN GRIER: So Comedy Central's The Chocolate News bombed and he didn't win Dancing With the Stars - Grier still has his In Living Color glory and his post as Wayans Family sidekick to fall back on. Check out the comedian's stand-up routine at Rams Head Live, 20 Market Place. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25-$35. Call 410-244-1131 or go to ramsheadlive.com.

COLD COLD HEARTBREAKERS: Dangerously Delicious Pies' Rodney Henry's Baltimore-based band plays its delicious brand of rockabilly at Talking Head Club, 203 Davis St. at 9 p.m. The Needles, White Tiger and The Bed of Roses are also on the bill. Next door at Sonar, electronica act Younger Brother performs. Tickets for Cold Cold Heartbreakers are $8. Go to sonarbaltimore.com.

CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL FESTIVAL: This Showcase of Nations ethnic festival honors Caribbean-American culture and traditions with island cuisine and a masquerade-inspired parade.

Admission is $10, free for children under 12. Call 410-362-2957.

IMPERATO FILM FEST: Filmmakers of all skill levels and interest areas submit their works to this group exhibition of short films. All submissions are less than 10 minutes in duration and range from animated to documentary styles. The individual films are available for viewing at stations and on screens throughout the gallery. That way you don't have to sit through a film you're not into. The opening reception is from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday at Gallery Imperato, 921 E. Fort Ave. The exhibit runs through Aug. 8. Go to galleryimperato.com.
