This year's Jamaica Plain Porchfest will feature more than 60 different performances on Saturday.
Performances are from noon to 6 pm across the neighborhood, and there's music, dance performances (and plenty of opportunities for you to dance!) for everyone of all ages and music tastes.
Just a sampling:

Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band (12-1 pm at 29 Robinwood Ave.) Raunchy circus roots. Polished precision performances.
