1. Two tunesmiths

Tonight presents a tough choice for the Minneosta music fan. Jeremy Messersmith(with Dan Rodriguez and Sam Butterfass) at the Rochester Art Center? Or 61 Rumors(featuring Addison Israelson, like Butterfass a Rochester native) at Kathy's Pub? You might be able to hit both: Messersmith's show starts at 7 p.m.; $18-$38. 61 Rumors takes the stage at 10. Free.

2. Moving day

Don't sweat getting a good seat for the Whalan Stand Still Parade, 11 a.m. to noon Saturday in Whalan. The parade doesn't march down the street — you do, to check out the stationary floats, the marching (standing?) bands, the waving princesses. Live music precedes and follows the parade. You might be able to find a good piece of pie, too.
