Things to do in Baltimore this week 1/16/17

Enjoying your three day weekend?  I know I am! Another week with plenty to do in Baltimore.  Baltimore Restaurant Week runs through Sunday.  Plenty of options for places to down your sorrows in alcohol on Friday.  Or maybe you find that humor is the best medicine?  Well Baltimore has plenty of stand-up shows and open-mic events to cheer you up.  This cold gloomy weather makes me feel sad so I try to keep busy with lots of activities.  Hopefully I will see you all out and about!

Two Trains Runnin’
7:30PM – 10:00PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Presented in partnership with the Baltimore Blues Society. Dir. Sam Pollard | 2016 | 80 min. In the summer of 1964, hundreds of college students traveled to Mississippi to join the struggle for civil rights and voter registration during what would become known as the “Freedom Summer.” By sheer coincidence, two groups of country blues lovers would make the same trip to Mississippi at this time, in an attempt to find legendary blues musicians Skip James and Son House. As these odysseys intertwine, this brilliant film highlights the political/cultural struggles and triumphs of this critical period in history.

Film Premier – Us Killing Us
6:30PM – 9PM
Impact Hub Baltimore
10 E North Ave, Baltimore
Your attendance & response to the film will be the final chapter added before its official release at the end of February 2017! “Us Killing Us,” produced and directed by Keston De Coteau of Keystone Productions, asks how we are responding to the pervasive and traumatic violence in the African-American community. How much collective responsibility do we hold in terms of prevention?  Currently, we stand at a cross roads as activists from the #blacklivesmattermovement push for change and an end to systemic racism, while cultural norms of “no snitching” remain dominant. Us Killing Us takes an honest look at our tumultuous times, continuing the dialogue, and urging us to take action.”

On staff as Director of Jazz Studies is Dr. Ira Wiggins, and Brian Horton. Both of whom are over the saxophone studio at the university. During his tenure at NCCU, he had the opportunity to meet and work with Antonio Parker, Dalfeyo Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, Roy Hargrove, Wynton Marsalis, and Vincent Gardner. The University Big Band had the opportunity to travel to the Newport Jazz Festival to join Branford Marsalis in a special musical performance which was recorded live for NPR music.

On December 25th, at approximately 2:45am, Christmas morning – Jason Pierce was walking home from a night out with friends, in Baltimore City. Jason was robbed at gun point and shot, then left for dead.  Jason, known for his blue hat, was one who could always be found playing with his band Troll Tribe or supporting local musical artists. His friends, family, and anyone who has ever seen the token blue hat found it a no brainer to host a Play for J event to help raise money for Jason. Jason has been there for all of us and strangers that he did not even know. At this event, there will be both bands and acoustic acts starting at 11:00 am to help raise money to go towards Jason’s finances. There will be a silent auction, raffle, and opportunities to support and donate to Jason all day and night.
Thank you to all of the bands willing to play to help raise money for Jason. We had an amazing amount of volunteers and will be giving as many a chance to play as possible. Confirmed bands include:
