Charmington’s

Believe us, with the Alex Meixner Band, polka is alive and well. Meixner carries on a family polka tradition brought to America four generations ago by his Austrian violin and cornet ­playing great ­grandfather Leopold who emigrated from the Austrian province of Burgenland to the U.S. in the mid-1920s. Home to Germanic, Hungarian, and Croatian-speaking inhabitants, Burgenland’s blend of diverse musical traditions shaped Leopold Meixner’s repertoire and that of subsequent generations of Meixner musicians, including Alex’s grandfather Alfred.

UNION Craft Brewing
1700 Union Ave, Ste D, Baltimore
Union is hosting Blacksauce and Ekiben at their brewery for a collaborative pop-up of epic proportions. We’re talking award winning, locally crafted food and beer on a beautiful Friday night in Charm City. There is no better way to kick off the summer. Real talk, this collaboration has been years in the making. Blacksauce’s dope food, endless grind and awesome staff was what inspired the Ekiben guys to dish out their own style of food at another Baltimore farmer’s market. Years later, Ekiben and Blacksauce are teaming up to bring Baltimore a one-of-a-kind culinary event. It took months to create this unique, collaborative menu and there is no better way to enjoy it than with live music and Union Brewery’s amazing beers.

The Music of Clifford Jordan
8PM – 10PM
An die Musik
409 N Charles St, Baltimore
This concert, led by James Weidman and Steve Williams, celebrates swinging and beautiful music of Clifford Jordan. Jordan was a tenor saxophonist born in Chicago. As writer Ted Panken expressed, Jordan’s narrative gifts (included) his lyricism, wit, mastery of changes-playing and vocalized tone, broad and burnished at all tempos and harmonic contexts, equally comfortable deploying the bright colors of the upper register and the dark hues of the tenor’s bottom. His compositions were perfect vehicles for his excellent artistry.

Photo Flesh presents paintings and installations exploring the photographic, in which photography takes the role of the protagonist to seduce its audience, not for what it represents, but for its own sensual quality. Far from indexing frozen time, here photography makes its voice heard only to state its presence, which is both hard and fragile at the same time.

(2002-2017) It is also a record of some of this era’s most pressing sociopolitical issues and happenings as witnessed and responded to in arguably some of the most radical and profoundly truthful incantations ever written down via the medium of poetry in a manner where the political and personal merge. Slanguage Arts & Griot Glimpses is very much “a research guide for the soul.”

Mount Vernon was where Mary Garrett Jacobs ruled Baltimore society, Zelda Fitzgerald’s disastrous 5 hour play was staged, and Wallace Warfield Simpson first worked her wiles. The neighborhood has hosted kings and presidents, and not a few famous writers. What better place to take your favorite wild woman? Join us to revisit the intrigue of the past along these hallowed streets.
