Monday, April 7th – Peabody Jazz Students
An Die Musik, 409 N Charles St. at 7:30 PM – $5

An Die Musik is nearly in Peadbody‘s back yard, so it’s no surprise (and quite a treat) that Peabody jazz students often play at the great space on Charles St. just south of the monument. Don’t let the word “students” fool ya, these musicians have chops.

Tuesday, April 8th – Barnyard Sharks Variety Show w/ Marc Steiner and Jonathan Badger
The Windup Space, 12 W. North Ave doors at 8 PM – $5 

Barnyard Sharks are known around town for their rowdy shows. They recently played two benefit shows, one at Ottobar and the other at Metro Gallery, for former City Paper employee and master-of-satire, Joe MacLeod (MR. WRONG) and I heard they brought the house down. This “variety show” features Marc Steiner of WYPR and artist, Jonathan Badger.

Thursday, April 10th –  Earl Carter
Phase 10, 885 N. Howard St. at 8 PM – free

You can’t go wrong with Phase 10. The jazz club on Howard St. in midtown is one of THE spots to see great jazz in Baltimore and often gets listed among Bobby’s and Caton Castle as one of the most authentic, Baltimore jazz spots. Earl Carter is a great guitar player, who plays all over town, but Phase 10 is the perfect environment to see him play.

Saturday, April 12th – Early American / Black Lung / The Convocation / The Gold-Bug
Gold Bar, 1910 N. Charles St., 2nd floor doors at 8:30 PM – $6

You can’t go wrong with some shoe-gaze and pysch-rock on a Saturday night. Gold Bar is one of the best places to see live music in Baltimore, so you can always count on a good time. Suggestion: hit up Liam Flynn’s (North Ave) beforehand for an Innis and Gunn scotch ale.
