Thursday, October 16th – Brian Kooken CD release
An Die Musik,  409 N. Charles St. at  8:00 PM – $15 ($18 at the door)

I once saw Brian Kooken perform at a church up in the county back in ’05 and he killed it. That was long before I had any exposure to jazz, so I look forward to seeing him again almost ten years later. He’s a local and a a fantastic guitarist. Buy your tickets ahead of time in case of a sell out.

Friday, October 17th – Dungeon Kids / Raindeer / Sherman Whips / Sitcom
Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St. at 9:30 PM – $8

While the Baltimore Folk Festival is happening on North Ave, Dungeon Kids and friends will be rockin’ Metro Gallery. Can you manage to do both? Yes, indeed. For just $28 you can see some of Baltimore’s best folk AND rock music all in one night. Thank your lucky stars you’re livin’ in Baltimore, baby.

Find more info here.



Friday, October 17th – Baltimore Folk Festival
Various Venues (Station North) starting at 7:00 PM – $20

I’ve been looking forward to this night of music for a while now. Most of Baltimore’s best folk and Americana musicians will be featured in the neighborhood-wide event on Friday night. Hour Haus, Liam Flynn’s, The Crown, Joe Squared and Windup Space will all participate. Check the schedule below for more details.
