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.
Thursday, October 9th – Billy Colucci Trio
Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave. at 7:30 PM – $15 ($12 for members)
Billy Colucci has some serious jazz piano chops. Get your tickets ahead of time because they might sell out. Colucci lives in Fells Point so maybe you can grab a drink with him in Canton after the show.
