Tremont Greek Festival

Fri., May 25

Held in Tremont every Memorial Day weekend at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, the annual Greek Festival features Greek music, Greek food, Greek drink and even antiques (Greek or otherwise). Visitors will find a mouth-watering assortment of homemade Greek specialties like pastitsio, moussaka (Greek-style lasagna), dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and lamb shanks. But the crowd favorite is always the gyro — and they don't get much better than they are here. Be sure to save some room for baklava or loukoumades (fried dough with honey). If you want something to wash it all down with, try the Greek beer Mythos or some Greek white wine. The festival starts at noon and admission is free. It continues through Monday. (Niesel)

Caitlin Canty

Sat., May 26

Produced by Punch Brothers banjoist Noam Pikelny and featuring a band of some of Nashville's best session players, Caitlin Canty's new album, Motel Bouquet, sounds surprisingly cohesive, given that Canty wrote the tunes in airplanes, motels and concert venues after moving from New York to Nashville. Album opener, "Take Me For a Ride," shows off her dreamy vocals, and strings liven up the ballad "River Alone." Canty performs tonight at 8 p.m. at the G.A.R. Hall in Peninsula. Tickets are $17 in advance, or $22 at the door. (Niesel)
