Crowded Streets – The Dave Matthews Band Experience w/s/g/ You Already Know
8PM – ?
The 8×10
10 E Cross St, Baltimore
If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, we hope the Dave Matthews Band (DMB) can take a compliment. From Dave Matthews to Jason Mraz to Wes Borland to Chris Brown and others, Virginia has recently rebuilt its reputation for producing high-caliber entertainers.
Crowded Streets—the name inspired by DMB’s third studio album — is what you call this Virginia – based sextet. The individuals who form this outstanding tribute are each dedicated to the task of reproducing the unique sonic experience of a live DMB performance. The band has attended numerous concerts and studied all the live footage they can get their hands on. Crowded Streets boasts the same original studio line-up of instrumentation and each musician is as versatile and creative as his DMB counterpart.
You Already Know – The high energy mix of blues, electronic dance music, funk, bluegrass, and hip hop create an experience that fans of You Already Know can’t help but get down to. YAK is a new generation of technical minded musicians and has quickly learned how to put on a great show that leaves fans wanting more.

Race Recounted [x] Our Voices Exhibition Opening
6PM – 8PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Race Recounted asks visitors to participate in the creation of artwork that tells the story of their own racialized identity through audio/visual portraits in a recordable greeting card (materials are provided). Participants must choose from a selection of 6 prefabricated exteriors that announce their race as defined by the US Census: White, Black, Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American, and Other. A workshop table in the center of the gallery guides them through the process of decorating the inside of the card and making a recording that re-plays when the card is opened. These stories and personalized images complicate the categorical generalizations made by the census classifications, and provide deeply moving insight into the complexities of identity that differentiate and define us all.

Shane McCallum: These Eyes
7PM – 10PM
Gallery Four
405 W Franklin St, Fl 4, Baltimore
Where does the mind go when it’s cut off from the world? If it wanted to be an artist, but wasn’t allowed? Shane McCallum spent thirty seven years of his life exploring these questions. McCallum entered the Maryland prison system as a young man, still in his teenage years. He found himself in a place with the power to reduce a person to a number and crush aspirations. He turned to art as support and managed to hold on to his identity.
