BmoreArt’s Picks: Baltimore Art Galleries, Openin [...]

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, June 3rd – Vayda / R. Ariel / Adventures of Silver Spaceman / Surf Harp
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – $5

While I’ve heard great things about all the artists on this bill, especially Vayda, but I’m recommending this show for Surf Harp — one of my favorite bands not only in Baltimore but in the world. Matter of fact, they just dropped a silly, trippy new video for their song, “Leather” which will be on an upcoming full-length.

More info here.



Thursday, June 4th – Cold Beat / Romantic States / Outer Spaces / Boy Spit
Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – $5

I have tickets for another show out of state on Thursday otherwise I’d be at Metro to see Outer Spaces. They are one of my favorite local bands and are a must-see.

More info here.


Friday, June 5th – Bumper Jacksons
Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave. at 8:00 PM – $18

Creative Alliance always seems to feature the best regional roots and Americana bands and Bumper Jacksons are quite the spectacle. If you’re a member it’s only $15 for their Friday night show.

More info here.

Friday-Sunday, June 5th-7th – Scapescape Festival
Multiple Locations throughout Station North starting

Scapescape didn’t happen last year and it was drag because it’s one of the best weekends of music in Baltimore. It’s back this year and the stacked lineup includes Sun Club, War on Women, Chiffon, Schwarz, Ami Dang, TT The Artist, Abdu Ali, Ed Schrader, Natural Velvet, The Sneaks, Viking Moses, and more. Venues include Windup Space, Metro Gallery, Charles St. (Station North), and The Crown. I’ll see you there!
