Untapped Fort Worth at Panther Island Pavilion

Craft brews and hip bands will once more pour into Fort Worth’s Panther Island Pavilion for a daylong celebration of both. National and regional artists like Built to Spill, Hayes Carll, Grupo Fantasma and Rayland Baxter are on tap, as are local artists like Bummer Vacation and the Hendersons, and more than 300 beers from over 80 breweries, including local stalwarts like Revolver, Rahr and Lakewood. The weather — this year, anyway — seems as if it will cooperate (meaning Untapped’s organizers are doubtless relieved), meaning this festival, one of many crowding the North Texas concert calendar, will be able to unfold without incident. Cheers to that.

3:30 p.m. Saturday. Panther Island Pavilion, Fort Worth. $35-$119.

I Love the 90’s at Verizon Theatre

It’s safe to say, as someone who lived through it, that the 1990s cultural renaissance is in full flower. Seeing your childhood and teenage years cycle back through the zeitgeist is a profoundly odd thing — not to mention something that makes a person feel incredibly old — but, clearly, there is still a fierce appetite for Clinton-era (Bill, that is) nostalgia. The “I Love the 90’s” package tour, toplined by Salt N Pepa and Dallas-based DJ Spinderella, is a full-on blast from the past, which will probably pack out Verizon Theatre. With Coolio, All-4-One, Color Me Badd, Kid ’n Play, Rob Base and Young MC.

7 p.m. Saturday. Verizon Theatre, Grand Prairie. $25-$65.
