Here's what's going on in town this weekend

Good day and happy weekend!

Forget romance — everybody needs friends. The Lansing City Market aims to set people up platonically Saturday with its Speed Friending event. Every 10 minutes, groups of three to five people are thrown together to answer a list of questions in order to get to know each other. Following the fast friending, attendees play a game of Cards Against Humanity, the "party game for horrible people." The event is for ages 18 and above, and there is a cash bar. 6-9 p.m. $5. Lansing City Market, 325 City Market Drive, Lansing. (517) 483-7460, lansingcitymarket.com/events.

Wedding planning season is in full swing, and over 80 vendors at the winter Lansing Bridal Show are here to help brides and grooms find the perfect DJs, photographers, caterers, outfits, venues and more. Each vendor in the show is giving away door prizes, with over $10,000 in prizes available. Noon- 4 p.m. $7/$10 for 11 a.m. early admission. University Club of MSU, 3435 Forest Road, Lansing. (517) 709-2026, lansingbridalshow.com.

Two Midwest-based American roots rising stars play a show at the intimate Pump House venue in East Lansing Saturday. Gus Moon, from Indiana, writes songs that draw from personal experience and straddle the line between dark and light. Cleveland-based Kate Kooser originally studied jazz and works as a voice instructor, performing at venues around Ohio and the Midwest. 7-10 p.m. $15 suggested donation. Pump House, 368 Orchard St., East Lansing. facebook.com/pumphouseconcerts.
