SUNDAY

2U: No, this cover band doesn't perform all of U2's songs backward. Instead, "The World's Greatest U2 Tribute" rattles, hums and performs classic hits by Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen. With drink specials all night, this concert might turn into one of those moments you can't get out of. The all-ages show is at Rams Head Live, 20 Market Place, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15. Go to tickets.ramsheadlive.com.

BALTIMORE FARMERS' MARKET: The Sunday before Thanksgiving is traditionally the busiest day at the farmers' market, on Saratoga Street between Holliday and Gay streets, so why not join the masses? In addition to great people-watching, you'll also be able to stock up on sweet potatoes, turkeys, meats and all of your other holiday meal needs. The market is open from 8 a.m. until it sells out. Go to promotionandarts.com.

GRANT LEE PHILLIPS: The singer/songwriter behind Grant Lee Buffalo, which has toured with REM and Pearl Jam, is traveling alone these days. The Winterpills open. See them at Rams Head in Annapolis, 33 West St., at 7 p.m. Tickets are $22.50. Go to tickets.ramsheadonstage .com.

MUSIC AT SECOND: It's a double-header, starting with Phil Munds, the Baltimore Symphony's terrific principal horn player. His recital at 3:30 p.m. offers works by Paul Hindemith, Heinrich von Herzongenberg and others. At 7:30 p.m., BSO musicians perform quartets by Mendelssohn and Baltimore-based Jonathan Leshnoff, and pieces by Prokofiev and Ethel Smyth. Both concerts are free. The event is at Second Presbyterian Church, 4200 St. Paul St. Call 443-759-3309 or go to communityconcertsatsecond.org.

THE BARBER OF SEVILLE: Even if you missed the fact that it's National Opera Week, you can still get in on the action. Baltimore Opera Theater debuts with Gioacchino Rossini's comic opera at the Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N. Eutaw St., at 3 p.m. The opera is performed in Italian with English supertitles. Tickets are $25 to $75. Go to ticketmaster.com.
