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.

Tuesday, June 17th – Out of Your Head – Improvised Experimental Music Collective
Windup Space, 12 W. North Ave. at 9:30 PM – FREE

Free shows are usually always good shows, but when it’s the Out of Your Head collective then it’s always stellar. A rotating cast of improvisational musicians playing a blend of free jazz and experimental noise makes for a unique experience every time you see it. There isn’t a place in Baltimore that supports a wider range of musical styles than the Windup Space.

Tuesday, June 17th – Chiffon / Co La / Thug Entrancer
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. (2nd floor), 8:30PM – $8

Chiffon are a pop-experimental duo,  made up of the former noise band, INEVERYROOM, who picked up some buzz a few years back. I had a chance to see them play the Talking Head (RIP). Chiffon is a bit dreamier, but great nonetheless.

Saturday, June 21st – The Revelers – Black Pot Dance Party
Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave., 8:00PM – $15, $13 for members

Expect an old-fashioned hootenany on Saturday at Creative Alliance when The Revelers perform their old-timey cajun folk music. The bayou will be alive and well in Highlandtown that night.

Along with weird horse names and laying a bet, the fashion at Preakness and other Triple Crown races is oddly traditional, a pageant of who's who in pastel suits, bowties, fancy hats, and floral dresses.
