The fifth annual Hometown Get Down will be held today and Saturday in Clarksburg. Featuring local music and local art for a local cause, proceeds from the event will benefit The Bernie House, which provides “a safe home without violence for families in crisis.”

Musical acts to be featured include The Fisherman, The Pocket Band, Dale and the Zdubs, Mindy Miller, Rude Cab Driver and many more. Tickets are $15 for one day or $30 for two (a two-day pass includes camping). For a complete list of vendors and sponsors, visit www.hometowngetdown.org.

The Greenbelt Arts Center finds itself “Incorruptible,” starting tonight and running to Oct. 13 at the theater. Written by Michael Hollinger and directed by Stephen Collins Yednock Jr., the show follows the downtrodden residents of Priseaux, France, circa 1250 A.D., as they clamor for a miracle from the local monks, and the one-eyed minstrel who offers an outrageous alternative. Tickets are $17 for general admission and $14 for students and seniors. For more information, visit www.greenbeltartscenter.org.

Frederick’s Comedy Pigs, The Maryland Ensemble Theatre’s resident cutups, come back with a new season of hilarious improv and sketch comedy. Featuring Gary Baker, Carly Ball, Courtney McLaughlin, Chris “C-Mo” Molloy, Anne Raugh, Franky Russell, Jeff Schnorr, Laura Stark and Julia Williams, the Pigs will perform at 10:30 p.m. Saturday at the theater, 31 W. Patrick St., Frederick. Tickets are $12. For more information, visit www.marylandensemble.org.
