• The Rally to Rescue event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the New Albany Farmers’ Market at the corner of Bank and Market streets. Admission is free. There will be several pet rescues and shelters in attendance with animals available for adoption. There will also be a silent auction and raffles to help raise money for rescues and shelters.

• Summer Concert Series, Oh My Me, 6 p.m. today, Bicentennial Park, New Albany. Oh My Me was formed in Lexington, Ky., in 2010. With a wildly-varying musical background, the group blends an eclectic mix of battering drums, psychedelia and heavy-soul vocals to form its uniquely theatrical sound. Surprising melodies and dynamic arrangements are keystones in the group’s music. Coupled with an unflinching stage presence, they have quickly established themselves as a band that is as interesting to see as they are to hear. (

• Rolling on the Weekend Summer Concert Series, The Devonshires with guest Sparechange Millionaires, 7 p.m. Friday, Jeffersonville RiverStage. RiverStage is a floating performance venue anchored along the majestic banks of the Ohio River in downtown Jeffersonville. (
