Sunday, July 6th – Crying / Told Slant / Dungeon Kids / Infinity Crush / Ricky 
Metro Gallery, 1700 N Charles St. at 7:00 PM – $10 

This is a packed bill and a great way to close out your July 4th weekend. Crying are a buzz-worthy synth-pop band out of New York and of course you can NEVER go wrong with Dungeon Kids, probably my favorite Baltimore band.

Tuesday, July 8th – Baltimore Old Time Jam
Liam Flynn’s Ale House, 22 W North Ave. at  7:00 PM – FREE

It’s been known that up to 60 different musicians join in on the jam from all levels and styles. The slower, beginner stuff starts around 7PM and the faster, more advanced music starts around 8PM. ALL ARE WELCOME.
