Bmore Music Picks is a weekly feature that highlights shows, concerts or events to check out in Baltimore (and the surrounding area). While it’s not a comprehensive events calendar, our picks are diverse and may highlight jazz, rock, folk, noise, punk, hip-hop, R&B, metal, experimental or just about any other sub-genre or style that helps make Baltimore’s music scene varied and vibrant.

For a more comprehensive events calendar, check out the Baltimore Fun GuideShow Space, or Weekly.Citypaper.com.

Wednesday, May 7th –  Baltimore Boom Bap Society
Windup Space, 12 W. North Ave, 9:30PM – $5

Live, genre-crossing, improvised hip hop. What’s not to like? Led by producers Wendel Patrick and DJ Dubble8, the Boom Bap Society is a round table of musicians who use the Windup Space as a jam session. A MUST-ATTEND.

Friday, May 9th – Welcome to Deathfest at Maryland Film Festival
MMF Tent Village, 131 W. North Ave at 9:00 PM – FREE

I can’t get away with writing a “music picks” column during Maryland Film Fest without including a recommendation on at least one music documentary. Although I’ve yet to see Welcome to Deathfest, a profile on one of America’s most sought after death metal music festivals, I have heard nothing but praise. In case you didn’t know, Death Fest happens every May right in Baltimore under the JFX downtown. 

More info here.
