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.

Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Chales St. at 9:00 PM – $10
The Flying Eyes have been around for nearly a decade, being Baltimore’s premier psych-rock band. They always put on a great show so get out to Metro Gallery on Wednesday.

Thursday, December 11th – Raindeer / Semicircle / Dungeon Kids / Shampoo
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. 2nd floor at 9:00 PM – $8

Raindeer lead, Charlie Hughes, recently shook up the band’s lineup and this is one of their first shows after the change. The always impressive, Dungeon Kids, are also on the bill so you will see me this show for sure.

Thursday, December 11th – Animal Collective DJ Set w/ Deakin and Geologist
Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. 2nd floor at 8:00 PM – $17

Yeah, you read that right. For some reason tickets are still available for Deakin and Geologist’s DJ set at Ottobar on Thursday. Okay, so maybe this isn’t an “Animal Collective” show per say, but it will still be awesome to see half of one of the most successful bands to ever come from Charm City in such an intimate setting.
