Slots are 2 songs / 10 minutes whichever is shortest (this may be reduced as time requires – though really this rarely happens – and occasionally we go around twice when the list be short, but this happens even less) and the venue asks that we be respectful of the audience, which can contain 4 year-olds and 80 year-olds and everything in between, so we aim for a “PG-13” environment. If you have questions about this, ask the host!
Teavolve itself is one of the cooler places you’ll get to either play or see Live entertainment with a full menu of deliciousness and that rare and wondrous thing: white tea sangria.

We will be used a soda ash wash to change the color in the cutch from a light brown to a rose red. Work on large-scale tapestries in collaboration with artists and the other participants. Also, create your own bandana-sized piece to take home. Materials provided. Drop in on the workshop any time, or stay for the whole session. All ages welcome.

Serial Mom at the Senator
8PM – 9:35PM
The Senator Theatre
5904 York Rd, Baltimore
“‘Serial Mom’ is the strongest film of the post-midnight-movie chapter of John Waters’s career. Successfully uniting his classic themes of celebrity, crime, exploitation filmmaking, the horrors of suburban interior design, and the idiocy of American politesse, ‘Serial Mom’ stars Kathleen Turner as Beverly Sutphin, a cheerful but mutedly uppity housewife who serves up waffles and maternal advice while swatting flies with glee and none too silently clicking her tongue when she spies her neighbors forgetting to recycle. While Beverly’s doting, June Cleaver-worthy fastidiousness is taken as a minor anomaly in 1990s America, most who encounter her take her retrograde attitudes as a welcome return to traditional American values. The problem comes when those same people don’t live up to her standards…” (Eric Henderson, Slant)

Old Line Spirits Summer Tasting
7PM – 10PM
Bookmakers Cocktail Club
31 E Cross St, Baltimore
Mark McLaughlin and Arch Watkins, former Naval Flight Officers with a lifelong love of whiskey met Bob Stilnovich, a founder of Golden Distillery while on a trip to Seattle. Bob, a fellow veteran, was ready to retire, so a deal was struck to pass on his recipes—and more importantly, his extensive whiskey-making knowledge. Mark and Arch set off for Washington State, where they mastered the art of distilling under Bob’s guidance. With their apprenticeship complete, they acquired Golden, and with his blessing, moved the distillery to their hometown of Baltimore.
Old Line Spirits will be providing sample tastings of their American Single Malt Whiskey. Beverage Director Ryan Sparks will offer 2 housemade cocktails using the spirit for only $7 each, as well as neat pours of the Single Malt for only $5. Chef Nelson will also have 3 appetizer specials to pair with the whiskey. For every Old Line product you purchase you will receive 1 raffle ticket that makes you eligible to win an empty 10 gallon barrel that will be given away that night.

Comedy Night: Asperger’s Are Us
7PM – 10PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Asperger’s Are Us is the first comedy troupe consisting of openly autistic people. As they say, “We’re not a charity and we’re not poking fun at Asperger’s. We’re absurd.” For the members of the Massachusetts sketch comedy troupe, it’s easier to associate with a faceless audience than with their own families. No matter who’s in the crowd, best friends Noah, New Michael, Jack, and Ethan have one simple mantra: “We would much rather have the audience appreciate us as comedians than people who have overcome adversity.” In 2016, a documentary film about their work was screened at SXSW, and was picked up by Netflix where it will available this fall.
Who should come to this show? As the troupe states: “As always, all performances are appropriate for anyone who’s started puberty.”
Ric Royer will open the evening. Ric Royer from Psychic Readings Co, will sing and dance and melt hearts with Magic Clap, a new type of clapping. This will be his first public appearance after a terrible car accident left him really messed up.

Take a listen to the sound of hard-driving original bluegrass and you’ll find a band that shares the same name comprised of members from vast musical backgrounds. The band started as a bunch of guys living in the Harrisburg, PA area connected by a love of acoustic music. Since then, the group has changed and expanded through many shows across the mid-atlantic region and the release of its first full length studio album featuring 10 original songs. With a sound that combines traditional straight-drive bluegrass with modern tonalities, technical playing, tight vocal harmonies, and a unique voice based on large amounts of original composition, Colebrook Road brings interest and excitement to their music and their audience.
Skribe
Skribe travels from town to town in a blue hearse spreading his own blend of garage folk: An unpretentious soulful sub-genre that draws from roots Americana & the 60’s garage rock spirit. Skribe’s non-stop live presence has ignited musical collaborations with the areas most skilled musicians & generated a cultured following. This amazing scene helped crowdfund & launch skribe’s recent 12″ LP. The fine tuned production of ‘Less Is More’ showcases the artists’ growth & raw soulful dynamic. Whatever the fidelity, skribe’s blooming creative career should not be considered a rolling stone…it’s a boulder.

Shagwüf – Shagwüf isn’t reinventing the wheel, just putting a cool spin on a tried and true concept.. Stylistically they are reminiscent of LA’s ‘X’, with a little nod to ‘the Pixies’ while leaning a little more towards the punk end of the hard rock spectrum with just the right amount of hard blues and psychedelia to invoke early metal pioneers like ‘Black Sabbath’, all wrapped up in a slightly twangy, swampy package that is sure to keep your head banging. Members of Tom, Hanks shagwüf.com
Z Plan – pop, music, over-easy eggs, country ham, biscuits & gravy, melody music, nice chords, kid friendly, pop tarts, songs about love, interesting, very interesting, songs not about love, do a back flip http://zplan.bandcamp.com/

No Pants Flash Mob at Artscape!
1PM – 5PM
Corner of Charles and Lafayette Streets, Baltimore
[TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS AND JOIN US!] We’re taking off our pants in the streets to start a dialogue about Respect- Because everyone is deserving of Respect. No matter how they dress or look, no matter their sexual preference or gender identity, NO MATTER WHAT.
[WHEN AND WHERE] On Saturday July 16th, find us hanging out on the corner of Charles and Lafayette Streets- just beyond the Charles theater and right in the heart of Artscape. Pick up some fliers, then head out to enjoy Artscape with your friends!  At 2pm sharp, no matter where you are at the festival, take off your pants!! Just walk about casually, enjoying the sights and delicious food, and acting as if you barely notice that you’re not wearing pants- and if anyone asks or looks interested, hand them a flier and start a revolution!
[WHY] If we are to see an end to hate, including but not limited to victim blaming, shaming, racism, discrimination, transphobia, cat calling and bullying, we need to learn to accept and be tolerant of differences rather than judge them. By taking off our pants, we hope to draw attention to ourselves, and to ask others to explore the question- do I deserve to be disrespected just because I am not just like you? While taking off your pants might be silly and evoke a few giggles from passers by, the underlying message is as clear as it is important- we ALL deserve to be comfortable in our skin, we all deserve to be met with respect.
[WHO] Those of every gender, color and size are encouraged to join the movement! Though not wearing pants is legal, participants are encouraged to wear full underwear, briefs or boxers, not thongs or G strings.

Alex Knopf’s last Red Maple Party!
10PM – 2AM
Red Maple
930 N Charles St, Ste 1, Baltimore
It is with a heavy heart that I have to say that Red Maple is being sold. But it is with pride that I come out of promotion retirement one last time to help make it’s final party go out with a bang! Three years ago I came out of party retirement to help bring order to the Baltimore Russian Community nightlife (and to escape a few of my own demons through sweet self destruction)… The result was the Goldin Gun Entertainment era that followed my resurgeance and my partnership with my good friend Felixx Gold and our amazing relationship with Leonard Clarke and Red Maple. It was like a second wind that revitalized the golden era of local Russian style parties in our amazing city. While I once again retired from the scene to focus on perusing other ventures in my personal and professional life, I feel almost obligated to return to the scene one last time in order to help support the good friends that have made so many of my nights memorable for many years to come! Come join me for my final Red Maple Crusade, where I shall boldly wage war against sobriety and boredom!  Our final party will feature a great list of versatile DJs performing consecutive 30 minute sets. Tony Smooth and Marat Leon are confrirmed… the final list shall be updated shortly!

SHANE at the Senator
Showing at 10AM
The Senator Theatre
5904 York Rd, Baltimore
“Looked at a certain way, the entire story of ‘Shane’ is simply a backdrop against which the hero can play out his own personal repression and remorse. The movie is conventionally seen as the story of farmers standing up to the brutal law of the gun in the Old West, with a lone rider helping a settler hold onto his land in the face of hired thugs.
Look a little more carefully and you find that the rider and the farmer’s wife feel an attraction for one another. And that Shane is touched by the admiration of young Joey, the son of the farm couple.  It’s not that a greater truth lurks in the depths of George Stevens’ ‘Shane’. It’s that all of these levels coexist, making the movie more complex than a simple morality play.” (Roger Ebert)
