Matthew Silver, Sticky Bandits, Asbestos Boys

Fri., March 24, 8 p.m.

In the tradition of village idiots and Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters, street performer and viral video star Matthew Silver confounds public expectations by acting like a lunatic. He’s the weird bearded guy who runs around in his underwear banging a drum and yelling, “Love is the answer,” and “Stop buying stuff.” By tweaking taboos, Silver parodies excessive seriousness. His mission is to breach people’s armor and open a portal for imagination. Maybe he’s not that crazy after all. $8

31st Annual Elizabeth Road Race

Sat., March 25, 8 a.m.

Get ready for the grandmother of all road races. It’s so big the mayor has proclaimed Saturday “Elizabeth Day,” in honor of the neighborhood that birthed it. It’s so big that Legion Brewing has named an ale for it, Big E! It’s so big you won’t find mere rappers, rockers or acoustic strummers serenading the racers — no, these racers get full-on opera (OK, actually “Xpress Opera,” but we’re splitting hairs). Spectating free; participation $10-31

Back 2 The 80s

Sat., March 25, 8 p.m.

If we were going back to the ’80s in our fantasies, we might choose a stronger lineup: Run-DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, L.L. Cool J, Stetsasonic, Eric B. & Rakim, Queen Latifah. . . Ah, but this isn’t a fantasy concert and we’re not booking it. Besides, you won’t go wrong with the real lineup at this hip-hop nostalgia show: Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Force MDs, Al B. Sure! and a few others. Just remember: It was better than this back in the day. $39-103
