[Editor's note: I'm not including a few of the big name events this week. Head here for our Gen Con picks. Head here for everything Mass Ave Crit. Head here for our State Fair picks.]

1. Umphrey's McGee

Aug. 5, 6:30 p.m. This wildly successful band originated right here in the Hoosier state. Never heard 'em before? Think a mix of The Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd.

Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn, 801 W. Washington St., $30 advance, $35 day of, all-ages

2. TwoDEEP TwoYEAR Party

Aug. 6, 3 p.m. They're about to be two years deep in their adventure. Time to Get TwoDEEP with them. Enough terrible jokes. They'll be tapping fan favorites like Bourbon Barrel-Aged Brickhouse and Camp Hope Smoked Porter, along with cask-conditioned versions of their four year-round beers and the release of their first sour beer! Mr. Zero Band will be performing live and cornhole boards will be out to play!

TwoDEEP Brewing Co., 714 N. Capitol Ave., FREE, 21+

3. Yoga in the Outfield

Victory Field, 501 W. Maryland, prices vary, all-ages

4. Bizarre Bazaar

Aug. 4-7, times vary. Like the previously mentioned Gen Con, this is another fantasy art vending event. And it just might give it a run for its money because — unlike Gen Con — it's a free event. Emily highlighted the local artists appearing at this event.

Indianapolis Artsgarden, 110 W Washington St, FREE, all-ages

5. Erin Tobey, Nice Try

Aug. 5, 7 p.m. Middlemaze continues to mine [Tobey’s] favorites from the ‘90s, imaginatively updating that decade’s buzzy guitar pop as well as its diligent DIY ethos. She writes with the emotional frankness of Phair, the daring of Sobule and the catchiness of the Posies, another favorite band. She sings in a high register, and the way she sculpts her syllables recalls both the world-weary wryness of Aimee Mann and the knowing self-possession of Juliana Hatfield. – Stephen Deusner

Joyful Noise, 1043 Virginia Ave., Ste 207, donations accepted, all-ages

6. Matt Panfil & Mike Graves

Aug. 5, 6 p.m. Matt Panfil, collage and paper cutting artist, noted in a statement about the show that he finds himself“constantly engaged with collage for its endless potential to infuse archetypal and abstract imagery, with which I seek to penetrate what Aldous Huxley dubbed ‘the mind’s antipodes’: subconscious realms of raw existential data. I thereby hope to elicit a kind of primal or magical awareness within the viewer in order to communicate otherwise inexpressible, universal messages, aided by glimpses of the fantastical and occult.” Panfil will show with Indy artist and musician Mike Graves. Graves will show his digital visual work that covers realism and surrealism.

Do317 Lounge & Gallery, 1043 Virginia Ave., FREE, all-ages

7. Festival Of Inner Peace

Aug. 6, 7-9 p.m. This offers a quiet, peaceful alternative to all the craziness taking place downtown this weekend, Musicians, dancers and artists utilize uplifting, soothing and life-affirming music and art to connect you to your inner self.

University of Indianapolis, 1400 E. Hanna Ave., FREE, all-ages

8. Goo Goo Dolls, Collective Soul, Tribe Society

Aug 6, 7 p.m. Jonny Rzeznik and company are touring May release Boxes, which your list developer highly recommends.

Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn, 801 W. Washington St., prices vary, all-ages

9. The Art Assignment Show

Aug. 5, 6 p.m. Born from The Art Assignment show, an initiative of Sarah Urist Green, this exhibit at 924 will feature the three Indiana artists who have been on the show and the work that they have inspired. If you have never seen Art Assignment, Urist Green travels around the country to meet artists, talk about their work and collect a series of homework type tasks that viewers can complete on their own. The gallery show will have work from Brian McCutcheon, Nathaniel Russell and Lauren Zoll. It will also have artwork from artists in Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky and Michigan that were made in response to their individual episodes.

Gallery 924 at the Arts Council, 924 N. Pennsylvania St., FREE, all-ages

10. First Friday at Radio Radio
