Some ideas to kick-start your weekend.

Friday HighBall

It's a fashion show, a street party, carnival, arts show and concert rolled into one. And 30,000 people are expected to show up this year. HighBall's evolved over the years, adding and dropping bits and pieces along the way, but the crowds keep getting bigger. And, while you're welcome to show up in street clothes, you're encouraged to come as someone or something else entirely.

Back to Dreaming, the new album from shape-shifting electro-pop duo Damn the Witch Siren, kicks off with the sound of a fluttering string section - a gorgeous introduction that comes on like the opening theme to some Disney fairytale.
