Thursday – New dance troupe at The Hippodrome

“Love is blind,” Chaucer once mused. “Love is a battlefield,” Pat Benatar purred into a microphone. Love, actually, is a lot. And now, “Love is Crazy,” is the title of the debut performance from Richmond’s newest professional dance troupe: The Landing. The show, to be held at The Hippodrome Theater, reveals “a variety of stages and feelings love gifts and haunts us with,” according to the company. Doors open at 6 p.m.; show starts at 6:30 p.m. 528 N. Second St. $25-$50. (804) 802-2571 or thelandingrva.org/events

Saturday – Monument Avenue 10K

It’s a Richmonder’s rite of passage (several rites, actually): completing your first 10K, cheering on runners from the sideline with a red Solo cup in hand, and possibly even accepting a mimosa from the extended hand of a stranger while running the race somewhere around the 5-mile mark. The Monument 10K, which is a top 15 biggest 10K in the nation, returns to its namesake location with much fanfare. 8:30 a.m. Broad and Harrison streets. $30-$65. (804) 285-9495 or www.sportsbackers.org 2018, ALEXA WELCH EDLUND/times-dispatch/

Unity Fest

Sunday – Unity Fest

When workers organize for better benefits and wages, it’s music to Bernie Sanders’ ears. That’s precisely why the Vermont senator is joining a slew of local bands — many made up of Starbucks employees — at The National. They’ll all be drumming up support for the organizing efforts of Starbucks workers locally and across the country. That’s also why you’ll probably see a Twitter rumor or two that Larry David was spotted downtown. All ages. Proof of COVID-19 vaccine or negative test required. Noon-8 p.m. 708 E. Broad St. Free. thenationalva.com

Sunday – Blues & Brews in the Bottom

Guess what happens when you play a classic tearjerker blues track backward? You get this fun fusion fest at the 17th Street Market. Featuring music by The Pump House Band and Ashleigh Chevalier Band — as well as plenty of local craft beer to sample. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. 100 N. 17th St. Free entry; pay as you go. facebook.com/17thStreetMarket.
