Meditation Mondays
6:45PM – 8:15PM
Indiginal Artisan & Wellness Studio
213 W. Read Street, Baltimore
Meditation is…………….
An ordinary person may consider meditation as a worship or prayer. But it is not so. Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. “Watching your breath” is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation. Meditation is not a technique but a way of life. Meditation Monday brings you different types of meditation, so you can see what you like!

“A corpse that won’t stay dead. Ceiling fans and six-guns and rain-streaked windshields. A love triangle crisscrossed with betrayal. In their landmark first feature, Joel and Ethan Coen tweaked the conventions of film noir, ‘wild’ Southern gothic, and even slasher films, yet the clichés weren’t just regurgitated. They were made rapt and hypnotic, exploited for their old-fashioned pulp charge but also stretched out like taffy, so that the filmmakers seemed to be staring, along with the audience and God, at these gutbucket plotters whose most ruthless and random actions somehow mutated into an elegantly symmetrical story.” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly)

CIA at The 8×10 with Beard o Bees and Schwa
8PM – ?
The 8×10
10 E Cross St, Baltimore
CIA  The power trio CIA consists of Allen Aucoin on drums (The Disco Biscuits, Dr. Fameus), Clay Parnell on bass (Particle, BioDiesel, BP) and Ian McGuire on the keys (MJ Project, Sonic Spank, Blurry Nights). CIA’s often high energy, high quality live performances have earned them acclaim among fans as a dynamic and explosive ensemble. CIA’s style borrows heavily from the genres of acid jazz, breaks and drum n bass, while regularly steering into experimental territories whose boundaries are highlighted by a blending of genres. As one fan put it, CIA plays “down to business dance beats for the bad kids”.
Beard o Bees facebook.com/LotusVibes | twitter.com/beardobees
Beard-o-Bees is the solo project of Jesse Miller (Lotus)
Schwa facebook.com/SchwaBaltimore “Raised from the depths of hell, this dynamic musical duo got their start in college with deep philosophical issues discussed late into the night such as ‘Why?’ and ‘How?’. Music, it was determined, is the answer, thus beginning their quest to not only dominate, but also rape and pillage the world of music. This is Schwa. This is Music.” -Dr. Schwactopus

DaiKaiju http://www.daikaiju.org/
Daikaiju is a mysterious chimera of sound and imagery that was first sighted in the winter of 1999. Entities of sonic mayhem, Daikaiju takes the sound of waves crashing and shrieking atomic lizards and makes it rock in a way that instills post-traumatic shock in all who experience their shows-a bizarre mix of psychedelic visuals and a highly interactive performance that literally draws the audience into the massive vortex of sound generated by the band. Concealed behind masks, this troupe of mystery men currently consists of Secret-Man, Rock-Man, Blast-Man, and Vibro-Man. Together, they create a mutant style of epic, high energy instrumental rock that seamlessly incorporates a wide variety of musical styles including surf, punk, metal, psychedelic and progressive rock.

7:30PM – 9:30PM
Red Emma’s Bookstore Coffeehouse

How can the movement for black lives build the power to move from outrage against police murder to systemically dismantling structural oppression? What are the deep roots of today’s crisis facing Black communities in America, and what are the possibilities for resistance and revolutionary transformation as a new generation of Black youth rises in activism? Why is the struggle for black liberation necessarily connected to the struggle against capitalism, and vice versa? In From#BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor takes on these hard questions and more, in a powerful book for the movements building today.

Baltimore Restaurant Week Begins!!!!
July 22 – July 31
Participating Restaurants
All over Baltimore!
Baltimore is a delicious city. From hand crafted street eats to James Beard Award-winning chefs, our restaurateurs are torchbearers for creative and diverse cuisine from all around the world. And luckily for all of us, July 22-31 is Baltimore Restaurant Week, when eateries around the city are offering special, prix-fixe menus designed to give diners a taste at a discounted price.  Two-course lunch and brunch menus range from $12-20, and three-course dinner menus range from $20-35. Try somewhere new, grab lunch instead of eating at your desk, have a date night (or three), because the price is right. Restaurants aren’t skimping on the food, instead they are showcasing their chefs and menus in hopes of luring you back as a forever customer, as a Baltimore believer, as a friend in food. Make reservations at www.BaltimoreRestaurantWeek.com or by calling participating restaurants.

Knife Sharpening
7PM – 9PM
Charm City Farms

Every household uses knives. Most households have dull kitchen knives. This workshop is designed for any person capable of using a knife to also learn how to sharpen a knife. You will learn some of the why and how of knife purchasing and why some knives simply will not maintain a keen edge while others could cut a penny in half and you could still shave with it. We will also show and discuss some of the many tools used to sharpen knives.
Each person should bring one to three household or field knives they are familiar with to sharpen. After a thorough explanation and demonstration each participant will be partnered and stationed at a sharpening stone to go to work on. Each person should leave with a knife “sharp enough to split a frog hair four ways”. Cost: $20

HOAX
8PM – ?
The 14 Karat Cabaret
218 W Saratoga St, Baltimore
HAS THIS HAPPENED TO YOU? A charming person approaches. Beautiful, respectable, full of wit, dazzle and promises. But when they’ve gone, you see, as if for the first time, that there is only sawdust in their wake. Too late, you realize that you are the victim of a scam. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s an unfortunate truth: there will always be golden-tongued liars to charm you right out of your pants (with wallet intact!). If you’re lucky, the encounter will leave you merely embarrassed. If you aren’t, you might well be out your money, love, time or attention. But don’t fear! Maxwell Fink and Sarah Swanson, themselves reformed and chastened criminals, will blow the rag and bone man’s secrets wide open! You’ll never be vulnerable again! Let Maxwell and Sarah show you how to see through the fakes and frauds! Don’t sleep, friends. Stay wide awake, and you’ll never again fall for a HOAX. Combining magic, theater, horror and carnival, playwright Annelise Montone and magician Brian M. Kehoe present a show unlike anything you’ve seen before. HOAX premieres July 22nd, 2016 and runs through August 20th. Remember: Don’t be a sucker.

Diane Coffee (mem of Foxygen) w/ Boulevards and Surf Harp at Metro Gallery
8PM – ?
Metro Gallery
1700 N Charles St, Baltimore
Diane Coffee (mem Foxygen), Boulevards, and Surf Harp (Friends Records)
Everybody’s A Good Dog is the first true realization of Shaun Fleming’s Little Shop of Horrors -meets-Aladdin Sane vision, recorded in a proper studio with an assortment of guest artists, horn section, and string ensemble (all firsts for Fleming). The resulting 11 tracks are a sky-scraping sound kaleidoscope, touched with euphoric instrumentation and dark lyricism.  Just as Diane Coffee’s debut LP, 2013’s ‘My Friend Fish,’ was inspired by Fleming’s move from sunny California to New York City, Everybody’s A Good Dog took shape after this former Disney child actor and current drummer for Foxygen uprooted again from NYC to the much smaller town of Bloomington, IN – “spontaneous moves have always helped to inspire my writing” he explains. This downsizing provided Fleming with a blank slate to create – “I missed the quiet. I missed having a fire. I missed the color green.” The songs on Everybody’s A Good Dog capture this sense of clarity, channeling the New York Dolls or T-Rex at their strutting-est and Meatloaf at his most theatrical, with shades of Motown-worthy soul. The gentle psychedellia on opener “Spring Breathes” gives way to a pounding prog breakdown, “Mayflower” leads with a monster funk-fueled horn riff, while on “Tams Up” Fleming fronts his own one-man doo-wop group.

He vaulted to international prominence with a folk-rock hit, “Romeo’s Tune” during a time when rootsy rock was fading out and the Ramones, Talking Heads, and other New Wave and punk acts were moving in to the public consciousness. Still, critics raved about Steve’s poetic lyrics and engaging melodies, and the crowds at CBGB’s club in New York accepted him alongside those acts. “I’ve never been interested in changing what I do to fit emerging trends,” Forbert observes. “Looking back on it, I was helping to keep a particular American songwriting tradition alive at a time when it wasn’t in the spotlight.”

Given the circumstances that are unfolding, around the rampant police murder of black people across America and the confusion/pain that it is causing, we are changing the topic of Circles of Voices this month. We need to come together, to create a space for listening, speaking and communing with one another. Something is wrong in America. We will not transcend this until we get to know each other across our differences. Come with questions. Bring your thoughts and feelings. J.C. Faulk and Verna Myers will be facilitating this session. Join us for this very important topic. Bring a bite to eat/drink. We are having a potluck. You are welcome here. Buy Tickets Here
