Thursday, January 29th – Michael Raitztk
Phase 10, 885 N. Howard St. 7:00 PM – FREE

Michael Raitztk brings a blend of Jazz, R&B, Blues and Funk to Phaze 10 on Thursday night. He’s considered by many to be one of the most accomplished Jazz guitarists in Baltimore.

Friday, January 30th – Sun Club / Sherman Whips / Little Leaguer / Slendermen
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – $5 

I’ve seen Sun Club a half a dozen times now and I’m impressed every time, mostly by their liveliness. Considering the elder statesmen of the band is barely drinking age, I guess their hyper-endurance should be fairly expected by as old heads. Either way, $5 to see one of Baltimore’s best, young bands is a STEAL.

Saturday, January 31st – Sweet Leda
Cat’s Eye Pub, 1730 Thames St. at 9:30 PM – $5 

I first saw Sweet Leda while at Loyola University working for WLOY Radio. Their blend of blues and Americana roots rock is infectious as hell. They make for a perfect Saturday night show at one of Baltimore’s best bars, Cat’s Eye Pub.
