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 Culture FlyShow Space, or



Tuesday, October 21st – Twin Peaks / Tweens / Sun Club
Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St. at 7:00 PM – $8

Local favorites, Sun Club put on a killer, super energetic live show. Twin Peaks are a great grungy, pop band out of Chicago so this bill should make for a fun Tuesday night. I recommend seeing Sun Club as many times as you can at places like Metro Gallery before they outgrow it because they’re about to BLOW UP.

Friday, October 24th – Friday Swing Night at Mobtown Ballroom
Mobtown Ballroom, 861 Washington Blvd. at 7:30 PM

The wonderful and eclectic Mobtown Ballroom recently put in a full bar so it makes their Friday Night Swing Night (featuring The Baltimore Strut) even more amazing. This place is one of Charm City’s hidden gems.

Find more info here.



Saturday, October 25th – Sharon Van Etten
Ottobar, 2549 N Howard St. at 8:00 PM – $16

I rarely suggest shows that don’t include local Baltimore acts BUT it’s a Sharon Van Etten show.  I promise it will be 16 bucks very well spent. Get your tickets ahead of time as it may sell out.

More info and schedule here.
