8PM – 1AM
The 8×10
10 E Cross St, Baltimore
The Fritz – After four years of traveling the East Coast, steadily building a reputation as a live act not to be missed, Asheville music ambassadors The Fritz, played a strong year of sets showing thousands of new fans what throngs of Southeastern music lovers have known for years: The Fritz likes to get funky. As much as they take their funk seriously, the band takes it’s rock-honed songwriting just as seriously, but the wellcrafted song is not the only final product in the live forum. Individually, the members of The Fritz are masters of improvisation, carefully weaving their personality into each performance.
Catullus – Emerging from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Catullus is building a reputation up and down the East coast for their deep grooving and sweat inducing sets. The ecstatic and energetic music that exudes from the five talented musicians effortlessly oscillates between progressive funk-rock, and electronic untz. Steeped in the improvisational tradition, each set carries with it the potential of 1,000 different paths forged only at the moment of inspiration. The powerful vocal harmonies and lyrics truly makes Catullus a unique experience that is not to be missed.

2549 N Howard St, Baltimore
Xenia Rubinos, Dylijens & Friends  and more TBA!
Vocalist and composer Xenia Rubinos crafts movingly powerful songs dipping in and out of genre and structure to create a sound that is fearlessly her own. Xenia’s powerhouse vocals are at the center of her music which grows from a wide range of influences from R&B to Hip-Hop to Caribbean rhythms and jazz all delivered with a soulful punk aura. Her debut album Magic Trix was released in 2013 by Ba Da Bing! Records to wide critical acclaim. Pitchfork lauded the radiant singer as “a unique new pop personality” while a profile in The New Yorker described her work as “rhythmically fierce, vocally generous music that slips through the net ofany known genre”. Xenia’s energetic live show and presence echoes some of the larger than life iconic singers she admired as a child including Judy Garland, Nina Simone and La Lupe while her powerhouse vocals recall the pop sensibility of Mariah Carey and soulfulness of Erykah Badu.

Kaynak Pipers of Bulgaria bring multiple kaba gaida (singe drone, low-pitched Bulgarian bagpipe) masters together, along with traditional drummers, to preserve the traditional music from their home in the Rhodope mountain region of Bulgaria. The word “kaynak” means “source” and is used to name a kaba gaida performer’s specific tunes/instrumentals, often demonstrating their performing skills. The sound of the solo instrument is haunting, emotional, and wild. In ensemble format, there is a force and power rarely heard in the United States.
Closing this evening of aural explorations, Baltimore’s own Horse Lordscall upon African poly-rhythms, minimalism, krautrock, and more, to create bold Baltimore rock and roll. The quartet of bass, sax, guitar and drums find a groove that is unmistakable and undeniable. Their recent recordings have garnered them National attention – and they are simply awesome live.

Fells Point Fun Festival 50th Anniversary!
5PM – ?
Fell’s Point, Baltimore
The Fell’s Point Fun Festival began as a small neighborhood festival 50 years ago as a way to raise money to fight against a project that would have linked I-83 and I-95 by building an elevated highway along the north shore of the Baltimore Harbor.This project would have entailed extensive demolition within Fell’s Point, and the highway would have cut off the remainder of the neighborhood from the waterfront. Over the years, The Preservation Society has worked
to maintain the 18th and 19th century character of the historic structures within Fell’s Point. The Society operates without cost to the city of Baltimore and it currently maintains many of the buildings as well as running historic tours of Fell’s Point.

Outcalls//paris_monster//Joseph & the Beasts
9PM – 1AM
The Windup Space
12 W North Ave, Baltimore
Joseph & The Beasts traffic in counter-rhythms that can begin as muted valleys and crash into fevered crescendos. Shifts in time give way to sprawling valleys of fuzz-drenched keyboards, before soaring vocals erupt into a fervor-filled maelstrom. The Baltimore-based band is currently gearing up for the release of their first full-length lp, GOLD LIGHT.  http://josephandthebeasts.com/
paris_monster – Beat-driven. Employing heavy elements of funk and soul, paris_monster closes the gaps between synth-pop & garage; between modern detail and old-school grit. Solid earth. Soaring soundscapes. A mass of noise.
Volatility. Vocal singularity. https://soundcloud.com/parismonster
Outcalls, a female-fronted septet, draws influence from classical, rock, electronic, hip-hop, soul, and folk genres. Their song-by-song approach to music-making draws lyrical content from current political and social happenings. The Baltimore-based group strives to reach audiences not only through imaginative music, but also excellent storytelling and stage presence. At 89.7 WTMD’s 2016 Baltimore Band Block Party, they were winners of a Baltimore Hit Parade feature and a Baker Artist Merit Award made possible by the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund. http://outcalls.bandcamp.com/

White Ford Bronco – All 90’s Band
8PM – 11PM
The 8×10
10 E Cross St, Baltimore
White Ford Bronco is influenced by the critical parental advice of Danny Tanner and the food at the Max. And the Peach Pit. The cuckolding of 90210 and Melrose Place. The red one pieces and the authority of David Hasselhoff that looks over the Los Angeles County Beaches. The Reebok Pump. Carlton’s dance moves. The sound of a slammer pounding down on a pile of pogs. The snap of a slap bracelet. George Herbert Walker Bush. William Jefferson Clinton. And at times Ross Perot, Al Gore, Bob Dole and Dan Quayle. Wayne’s World. Hypercolor T- Shirts. The ever so adorable Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Tim Allen’s two other kids. Scratch that, JTT and the Olson Twins. And of course the same thing we try to do everyday Pinky…try to take over the world.

Psychedelic Mexican Jazz: Troker Score The Grey Automobile
8PM – 11PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Psychadelic Mexican jazz renegades TROKER make their Bmore debut with a score to one of the few remaining films of the silent-age of Mexican Cinema, the 1919 gangster film, “The Grey Automobile” For this evening, Troker will debut their newest project for Baltimore audiences, providing a live, original score the 1919 Mexican silent film classic, The Grey Automobile. Following the film (117 min run time), they will play a short set of original music.
About “The Grey Automobile”: Directed by Enrique Rosas, El Automovil Gris (1919) was filmed in Mexico prior to the Mexican film boom of the 1920s and is one of the few surviving Mexican silent films. It synthesizes many elements popular in international cinema. El Auto was originally a 12 chapter serial, and now the film survives in an edited down version. Rosas filmed on location where the actual events occurred, giving audiences a rare glimpse into the city streets of the late 1910s. The plot of the The Grey Automobile is more than just a cops and robbers shootout. The initial audience was quite familiar with the story of the Grey Automobile Gang who terrorized the streets of Mexico City almost a century ago. Many of the actors/actresses in the film are actual key players in the gang escapades of the Grey Automobile Gang.

Annual Edgar Allan Poe Lecture: 2016
1:30PM – 4PM
Westminster Hall and Burying Ground
519 W Fayette St, Baltimore
We hope you’ll join this three-part event that starts at Poe’s grave and moves to the University of Maryland (801 W. Baltimore Street)
1:30 p.m. – Tribute to Poe at the Poet’s Grave
Location: Westminster Burying Ground, at the corner of Fayette and Greene Streets
(This is a very brief and informal ceremony. Anyone wishing to bring flowers to be placed on Poe’s grave is welcome to do so.)
2:00 p.m. – 94th Commemorative Edgar Allan Poe Lecture
Location: Discover auditorium University of Maryland BioPark, 1st Floor, 801 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201. (The University of Maryland BioPark is only a few blocks away from Westminster Hall and the University of Maryland Hospital, just on the western side of Martin Luther King Blvd. Free parking is available on the street.)
Welcome, and Introduction of the Speaker
Address: “ ‘Deep into that darkness peering’: Poe’s Cross-Genre Response to Mystery” by Paul Lewis (professor of English at Boston College, and president of the Poe Studies Association).
Abstract of the lecture: The lemons life gave Poe were bitter loss and haunting mystery. The lemonade he made poured out not only in works that deal with dying women and unloving men but across the genres he explored with relentless, irresistible energy. From the “homeless” protagonist of his first major poem, “Tamerlane,” through the triumphantly empirical Dupin and the dumbfounded narrators of the gothic tales and poems, from the fascination with ciphers through the authoritative voice of the book reviews and the bold assertions of Eureka — mystery looms as the inescapable challenge and extraordinary opportunity created by Poe’s disorienting childhood.
Response/Discussion and Questions from the audience. A reception with cake, cookies and punch will be available following the lecture.

Enjoy!

– Lindsey
