Merriweather Post Pavilion is hosting another music festival Saturday, though this one will be almost definitely Deadmau5-fan free. It's HFStival, which returned last year after a four-year hiatus.

Bands Pasadena, River James and Lionize will be on the local stage.  Organizers sent over the full schedule, posted below.

In what might fully qualify as one of those "only in Baltimore moments," an Elvis tribute artist named Jim Parsley - white jumpsuit and red scarf, fabulously coiffed black hair with 1970s sideburns - performed songs of the King on Saturday night on the big stage in Lithuanian Hall, backed up by a blues band and three belly dancers. Elvis and belly dancers, and the belly dancers trying to keep up with "Suspicious Minds" - a memorable tableau, with a whole lot of shaking going on, and unlikely to be found in any other American city.

It's difficult to wander through Artscape and not find something thrilling. The city's annual street festival along Mount Royal Avenue is an abundant arts buffet vibrant with theatrical performances, lively poetry readings and hip fashion shows. But the diverse musical lineup on the main stage is perhaps Artscape's biggest draw. Past festivals have featured memorable shows by such pop-soul legends as Al Green, Chaka Khan and Isaac Hayes. Throughout its 26 years, Artscape also has spotlighted burgeoning acts of various styles, especially from the underground club and soul scenes.

Finally, a no-brainer. Kicking of Merriweather Post Pavilion's season, the Sweetlife Food and Music Festival boasts an eclectic, solid lineup of established acts and rising talents. In chronological order, here are the five acts I suggest finding time for on Saturday: Action Bronson (12:25 p.m., Treehouse) Before heading over to the main stage for Fun., check out a few songs from this Albanian-American star-in-waiting. If you like raps about high-end food, left-field pop references and other atypical topics for hip-hop, Action Bronson will make your day. His latest mixtape, "Blue Chips,"  is an intoxicatingly fresh listen.

Live, the York-based band that rose to prominence in the mid-1990s with songs like "Selling The Drama" and "Lightning Crashes," will headline the Grand Prix of Baltimore's music offerings. Organizer Race On LLC announced its lineup Monday. Live will take to the main stage, between the Hilton and Convention Center, Saturday Aug. 31 at 6 p.m. for an hour-and-a-half show.

The crowd as a whole is behaving surprisingly lucid and laidback, enjoying their neon yellow mugs full of beer. Anyone turned off by the debauchery of say, five years ago, might want to consider coming back. Then I spot the first public vomiting sighting of the day at 12:15 p.m. About 150 yards away from the main stage, a tall 20-something hunches over a white Maryland Jockey Club cardboard trashcan in the middle of the Infield. He has a T-shirt wrapped around his head.  He takes an extra 30 seconds by the can to collect himself.

Nationally, Lollapalooza is the biggest name in alternative music festivals. Around here, however, that show generally takes a back seat to the annual 'HFStival.More than just another radio-station showcase, the 'HFStival -- which takes place Saturday at RFK Stadium in Washington, is something of a musical bellwether, offering an easy way to get in touch with what's new and hip with local listeners. And though there are generally some mighty big names involved, sometimes an unknown act will unexpectedly end up the crowd's big favorite.
