Wednesday, June 4th –  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, June 6th – Ellington on the Avenue
Jubilee Arts, 1947 Pennsylvania Ave., 7:00PM – FREE

Friday, June 6th – Normals 24th Anniversary Party with Wume / Old Songs / The Go Pills
Metro Gallery, 1700 N Charles St., 8:00PM – $10 (link to tix)

Normals is a Baltimore institution. If you haven’t been, head to their Greenmount Ave. store on an afternoon and wander aimlessly through their selection of obscure vinyl and first pressing books. Friday night’s show at Metro Gallery celebrates 24 years of Normals with a great bill of bands.

More info here.

Saturday, June 7th – Adelante: Music Without Borders
Germano’s, 300 S High St., 7:30PM – $10 (link to tix)

A nice blend of jazz and experimental over a heaping plate of chicken parm? I’ll take it.

More info here.
