Tonight we rock without instruments. The 2012 U.S. Air Guitar Championship's Kansas City regional is set for tonight at 9 p.m. on the stage of the Beaumont Club (4050 Pennsylvania). At stake is a trip to the national championships. Tickets cost $8.

Whether it's a first date or you've been together for a while now, some concerts, like romantic movies, are destined to be makeout fests. Reveal your sensitive side on Saturday afternoon at the Starlight Theatre when Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw take the stage at 4:30 p.m. Tickets range from $9.33 to $95.

Dive into the DIY culture at Maker Faire this weekend at Union Station. The event celebrating artists, robot designers and all manners of creators is from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

You might be chugging around town in a Civic rather than a hot rod, but that doesn't mean you can't dream of owning a classic coupe. Close to 200 vintage cars, motorcycles and trucks will be on display Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kansas City Art Institute's Art of the Car Concours (4415 Warwick Boulevard). Admission is $15 at the gate, $12 in advance.

Only one cuisine can reign supreme at the third annual River City Cook-Off. Chefs from Local Burger, WheatField and Tortas Jalisco will be among the contestants vying for the crown at Abe & Jake's Landing (8 East Sixth Street) in Lawrence from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 at the door.

Shakespeare has returned with the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival in Southmoreland Park (47th Street and Oak). A Midsummer Night's Dream is at 8 p.m. Saturday, with nine more shows between then and July 15. It rotates every other night with Antony and Cleopatra. The performances are free.
