¨Qué Pasa? Festival on Brown's Island

With colder months looming, take every opportunity to lay eyes on your fellow humans before we all burrow down into our caves and go into a kind of TiVo hibernation. So, festivals! ¨Qué Pasa? forces an end-of-season hip shake with salsa favorites Bio Ritmo plus the Latin Ballet of Virginia and Baile Folcl¢rico de Zacatecas. Goodbye tank tops and suggestive rhythms! We raise an obscure but tasty Peruvian delicacy to you, Saturday, Sept. 16, noon-8 p.m. $5-$8. 378-4099.

Somerland Festival at Market Café

"A festival at a gas station?" you might ask. Oh, but Market Café is more than just a gas station. And Somerland Festival has more than just music. Sure, there's Somerland Band, SteppinStone, Fighting to Forget, Searching for Timothy, Through You and Motion Picture Demise. But there's also a skate park, fire twirling (not too near the gas pumps) and vendors and, like any self-respecting gas station, the newest flavors of Doritos. Hopefully they'll be stocked up Saturday, Sept. 16, 3-11 p.m. $10. 934-0144.

43rd Street Festival of the Arts

It may be the last time this year you'll stroll through an art-related event and not be overwhelmed by holiday aesthetics. No puppies with Santa hats, no wreaths made out of Cheerios … not yet. No, the 65 artists represented on 43rd Street may yet have some restraint. As, we hope, will the musicians: Susan Greenbaum, The Taters, The Huge Guitars, The Bluz Catz and Tinkers' Dam. No holiday tunes Saturday, Sept. 16, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Free. 233-1758.

Halfway to St. Patrick's Day Party at Sin é

Not to naysay the holidays, of course, but it can definitely be a trudge from one end of December to the other. Far better to look way ahead to obligation-free celebrations like St. Patrick's Day, thoughtfully brought to us at the six-month point, when we need green beer the most. The Fifteens, Wonderground, Jubeus and Dave Pollard feel the same way apparently, as they're playing the various flavors of pop, rock and beer-hoisting tunes throughout Saturday, Sept. 16, starting at 11:30 a.m. Free until 6 p.m. 649-7767.
