Wednesday, June 24th –Eric and Erica / Amanda Glasser / Outer Spaces / Murderboats
Dust Town Studios, 1406 Eutaw Pl. at 9:00 PM – Donation

Outer Spaces are one of my favorite Baltimore bands. Led by songwriter, Cara Satalino, they’re a great blend of pop and folk. Satalino will be playing Outer Spaces songs solo at this show. Murderboats, led by Josh Dean, will also play. His matter-of-fact songwriting sometimes reminds me of Jeff Tweedy and other times Bill Callahan.

Wednesday, June 24th – Station North Jazz Ensemble
Windup Space, 12 W. North Ave. at 9:00 PM – $5

The Station North Jazz Ensemble features woodwinds, trumpets, trombones and drums from various local jazz musicians including Ben Frock and Matt Rynes.

Friday, June 25th – Lea Gilmore’s Big Fat Blues Cabaret
Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave. at 8 PM – $23 at the door

I have the pleasure of knowing Lea Gilmore, an immensely talented singer, activist and person who doesn’t often perform in Baltimore due to her popularity overseas. Get your tickets in advance for $20 and enjoy one of the best voices in Baltimore, blues or otherwise.
