Sunday, May 24th – Baltimore Rock Opera Six Pack
The Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave. at 9:00 PM  – $15 for one show / $25 for both

BROS have started something new — six one-off shows that each last for 25 minutes. Split into two weekends, BROS 6-Pack should make for quite the weekend entertainment. This is set-up for those who want to check out what a rock opera is all about but maybe aren’t mentally prepare for two hours of rockness. I’d get your tickets ASAP because this will probably sell out — the BROS are very popular these days.
