A Fitting End

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.

Tuesday, August 11 – Karaoke Forever
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – FREE

I’ve never been the biggest karaoke fan, but The Crown’s Tuesday karaoke night is a blast. No shame, no modesty, no hold-back. It really gets going around 10:30 or so and makes a good companion to whatever show is happening across the hall in the Red Room.

Wednesday, August 12th – Outer Spaces / Surf Harp / Try the Pie / Nudie Suits
Windup Space, 12 W. North Ave at 9:00 PM – $8

Two of my favorite baltimore bands make for a great Wednesday night at one of the town’s best music bars. Head out to see Outer Spaces and Surf Harp, who will be playing at the end of the night. Try to get their early to see Ruby Fulton’s, Nudie Suits if you can.

More info here.



Thursday, August 13th – “The Damned: Don’t You Wish You Were Dead” Screening
Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. at 8:00 PM – $8

EXCLUSIVE BALTIMORE PREMIERE From “Lemmy” filmmaker Wes Orshoski comes the story of the long-ignored pioneers of punk: The Damned, the first U.K. punks on wax and the first to cross the Atlantic. Get there early, settle in and enjoy the rock-doc.
