Friday, June 12th – Brothers Music Grand Opening w/ Raindeer and others
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – $5

Brothers and local musicians, Ian and Brian Goldstein celebrate the opening of Brothers Music in Old Goucher on the 21st block of Charles St, just a couple blocks from The Crown. The store has instruments and used gear for any local musician or hobbyist in the area. It’s not only awesome to have a musician run music store in Baltimore but also in Station North. Come out to the show Friday with Raindeer and others TBA.



Saturday, June 13th – Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival
Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave. at 11:00 AM – FREE

Come out to Highlandtown to celebrate Maryland folk tradition and heritage with the Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival at Creative Alliance. Enjoy West African drumming, a crab picking competition, and a dance battle at all on Saturday afternoon.

More info here.



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.
