Things to do in Baltimore this week 4/30/18

Oh man! Warmer weather means more and more events. I’ll be at the Best of Baltimore 2018 party on Thursday. I’m going to see Soul: The Stax Musical at Center Stage on Friday.

Sunday is the final show of 10x10x10 2018 at Fells Point Corner Theatre so I managed to fit that in to my schedule. I’m going to need a weekend to recover from my weekend.

THIS IS YOUR LAST WEEK TO DONATE! I’m to raising funds to support the Maryland SPCA. Please help support me in this important fundraiser by contributing generously. Whatever you can give will help – it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House – Baltimore – Pier 5
711 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Sip your way through over 130 years of history with one of Napa’s oldest wineries, Freemark Abbey, over five incredible courses. And for the first time, we’re pairing our sizzling steak with not one, but two spectacular Cabernets: one from Rutherford AVA and one from Napa Valley. It’s a one-night-only, first-time-ever pairing you won’t want to miss. Our main course is accompanied by two distinct California Cabernets that blend nicely with the buttery flavors of the dish as a whole: the Napa and the Rutherford. The Napa is a juicier, rounder Cabernet that complements the sizzling filet without being overpowering. The Rutherford Cabernet, however, is known for its “dusty” quality, AVA produces Cabernets with dry, firm tannins that pair well with the charred flavors of the onion jam and cauliflower.

Fattitude Screening in Baltimore Sponsored by The Body Image Therapy Center
7PM – 10PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Fattitude examines how popular culture perpetuates the fat hatred and fat-shaming that results in a very real cultural bias and a civil rights issue for people who are living in fat bodies. Fattitude is the brain-child of filmmakers Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman. Informed by a social justice background, Fattitude is very conscious and attentive to the idea that fat hatred crosses the lines of race, class, sexuality and gender. The film features a diverse variety of voices such as academic scholars, activists, Hollywood types (directors, writers and actors) and psychologists. Ultimately, Fattitude’s goal is to change the national conversation about body image so that it focuses not only on issues of self-acceptance, but also on legitimate questions of systemic cultural prejudice.

Moving Walls
Thursday May 3, 8pm, Saturday May 5, 8pm
The Peale Center
225 N Holliday St, Baltimore
Moving Walls is an experimental dance piece that examines human experience in relation to architecture. Combining movement with sculpture, animation, and sound, the piece is a collaborative project that questions our concepts of stability. With wheels, ropes, pulleys, hooks, and hinges, three performers construct and deconstruct the space around them. In turn, they are influenced by their shifting surroundings. Audience members are invited to explore their own unique perspectives of Moving Walls by passing freely throughout different rooms of The Peale Center. The Peale’s rich and complex history of preservation, including former exhibitions on taxidermy and the building’s own physical restoration, provides a visual and conceptual framework for the performance.

April 27 – May 20, Thurs – Sat 8PM, Sun 3PM
Single Carrot Theatre

Neverland is back like you’ve never seen it before in this modern take on a classic childhood story. From playwright Joshua Conkel (MilkMilkLemonade, Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events) comes a brand new version of Peter Pan, adapted in collaboration with Baltimore’s LGBTQ+ residents and service organizations. Peter and Wendy must face down murderous pirates and the island’s perils while grappling with questions of gender, sexuality, and performative identity. Familiar fantasy and true stories from Baltimore’s LGBTQ+ community blend as those who have been rejected and devalued build a home for themselves and each other: a stronghold against normalcy where Peter, the Darlings, and all the Lost Boys can be themselves. World premiere!

Pressing Strings w/Kavoossi at Metro Gallery
8PM – ?
Metro Gallery
1700 N Charles St, Baltimore
Pressing Strings is a soul stirring trio based out of Annapolis, Maryland. Their sound is versatile and stems from lead singer Jordan Sokel’s soulful, bluesy songwriting combined with a solid and dynamic rhythm section. Anchored by drummer Brandon Bartlett and bassist Nick Welker, their musical influences span genres and generations. As a result their fan base does the same. All three members grew up basically on the Mason-Dixon line, in the shadow of Appalachia and sewn into the seems of the Chesapeake. That brackish water seems likely and fitting to represent their style of music: rootsy and organic; funky and melodic.

American Visionary Art Museum
800 Key Hwy, Baltimore
From the American Visionary Art Museum: a race through Baltimore of wacky, imaginative, totally human-powered works of art, designed to compete over land, a mud pit, and the Inner Harbor, constructed out of used bicycles, gears, and parts, created by a lunatic genius who tinkers around in the garage or backyard (do you know this person?)! This year’s theme is “Mysteries and Tall Tales,” inspired by our current mega-exhibit, The Great Mystery Show. Pilots (“Kinetinauts”) compete for the most coveted GRAND MEDIOCRE EAST COAST CHAMPION AWARD (finishes right in the middle), and the highly prized NEXT TO THE LAST AWARD (finishes, well, next-to-last), and other serious trophies including ART, ENGINEERING, BEST BRIBES and more. Race starts at 10am at the American Visionary Art Museum (arrive early to take part in Opening Ceremony and Blessing of De Feet).
Great spots to see the vehicles:
– 1st Checkpoint atop Federal Hill (around 10:15am)
– The Water Entry at the boat ramp at Canton Waterfront Park (around 11am)
– The not-so-quick-Sand Pit in Patterson Park (1:15-3pm)

Enjoy cocktails and gourmet treats while browsing our curated, high-end silent auction items. Pawject Runway is premier event that is suitable as an adult-night out, but also a family-friendly event!
ABOUT THE CHARITIES:
More than 12,000 unwanted, abused and stray animals enter the doors of the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) each year – dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, even wildlife and exotic animals. BARCS is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization operating Maryland’s largest open-admission animal shelter and pet adoption center, nestled in downtown Baltimore’s Federal Hill neighborhood.
Show Your Soft Side is a public service campaign that was created to change the mindset of young people who all-too-often view the maiming and torturing of defenseless cats and dogs as a sign of “toughness” or “manhood.” The campaign’s message that compassion toward animals is a strength, not a weakness is one that, overnight, struck a nerve with old and young alike. Show Your Soft Side uses its resources to build a better world for animals and, in doing so, build better adults.

The Peale Center
225 N Holliday St, Baltimore
Moving Walls is an experimental dance piece that examines human experience in relation to architecture. Combining movement with sculpture, animation, and sound, the piece is a collaborative project that questions our concepts of stability. With wheels, ropes, pulleys, hooks, and hinges, three performers construct and deconstruct the space around them. In turn, they are influenced by their shifting surroundings. Audience members are invited to explore their own unique perspectives of Moving Walls by passing freely throughout different rooms of The Peale Center. The Peale’s rich and complex history of preservation, including former exhibitions on taxidermy and the building’s own physical restoration, provides a visual and conceptual framework for the performance.

45 W Preston St, Baltimore
Brooklyn-based theater company Great Small Works revisits the work of radical 20th-century New York City puppeteers Zuni Maud and Yosl Cutler. In a bilingual Yiddish-English play that uses Maud and Cutler’s satirical puppet scripts and original graphics, together with Great Small Works’ own puppets and projections, as well as The Dybbuk and Mae West, Muntergang is a meditation on historical models for changing power relationships. Great Small Works has a 20-year history of engagement in all aspects of puppet theatre. With roots in Bread and Puppet Theater, company members have created large-scale processions and spectacles involving hundreds of participants, written books and articles about puppet theatre, and taught workshops and classes in settings ranging from prisons and universities to opera houses and community centers.
