Sunday, June 14th – Heartless Bastards / Craig Finn
The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. at 8:00 PM – $18

Only occasionally do I step outside of Baltimore when recommending shows to check out but I just can’t resist the rock n’ rollers Heartless Bastards and everyone’s favorite stumbling bar-band poet, Craig Finn (of The Hold Steady). Get your tickets ahead of time because there’s a chance it could sell out.
