Things to do in Baltimore this week 5/14/18

Hi friends. Today was not a very fun day. Cancelled flights are the worst. Hopefully, by the time this posts I’ll be in Georgia. Either way, I’ll be back on Tuesday for the Barbaresco Winemaker’s Dinner with Daniela Rocca of Albino Rocca at Aldo’s with the Wine & Food Society of Baltimore.  The 143rd Preakness Stakes makes for an exciting week in Baltimore. It’s fun to get dressed up and wear a fancy hat while you get on horses. I collect vintage hats so I take what I can get. Also I’m going to see Incredibly Dead! by the Baltimore Rock Opera Society on Saturday night. Again, a MUST see! Have fun folks, and stay safe.

Whether artistically, structurally or thematically, each film/play coupling aims to inspire conversation and draw connections between the material exhibited on stage and on screen—and every film will be introduced and accompanied by a post-screening audience discussion, hosted by the Everyman Theatre artist who selected that pairing. Tonight is hosted by “The Book of Joseph” Director Noah Himmelstein.

Follow No Strangers to the Fun Places lovingly follows two characters’ repeated—and constantly interrupted—attempts at making a piece of theatre. Through constant breaks, disruptions and disconnections, the show breaks down theatrical narrative; explores the relation of fiction to real life; and ultimately tries to answer the question of why anyone would want to make art in the first place. The show runs approximately 70 minutes.

Curators’ Incubator: Waving and Wavering // Opening Reception
6PM – 9PM

Many of our most visible public symbols, including flags, are currently under increased scrutiny and public reconsideration. Rather than seek to define any fixed set of meanings, the exhibition Waving and Wavering assumes that a flag will always carry various and contested meanings. Exploring multiple interpretations of flags as both concept and format, this exhibition emphasizes three main perspectives: local examples of artists creating new flags for the city of Baltimore, new models of artists examining the American flag, and international samples of artists working with flags in contemporary ways.

6PM – 8:30PM
The Motor House

Incredibly Dead!
May 11-June 3, Fri & Sat 8PM – 10:30PM, Sun 4PM
Zion Church Of the City Of Baltimore
400 East Lexington Street, Baltimore
From the Baltimore Rock Opera Society, A B-horror homage with dastardly heroes, maniacal villains, and insane antics! Nearly twenty years ago, General Maximilian Morder devised a plan to bring order to the world with the aid of a mysterious goo. Things didn’t pan out. Now, the elixir is in the hands of Reggie and Silas Cryptz – two moronic morticians who have drawn the vile ire of a family they’ve cheated in the past. The antics of our heroes will lead to monstrous results, and a dire intersection with fate. “Incredibly Dead!” is pure B-horror: cheap thrills, intestine-length twists, and blood-drenched fun. The show is set to rockin’ tunes that pay homage to spine-tingling classics, and will sever tapping toes! This is pure, unadulterated fun (lots of people die, but we swear, you’re going to enjoy watching them die). Due to adult language and people like, you know, dying and what not, we consider the show rated “R.”

So be sure to bring a chuckaboo or two!At the beginning of the Victorian era, the majority of scientists consisted of amateur scholars, who observed and recorded everyday phenomena. These hobbyists often compiled vast private collections of specimens, which they or other scientists would then catalog. Later in the century, amateurs and trained scientists would band together to form scientific societies that served to provide a forum for discussion of current observations and theories. It was because of these groups of people that the Natural History Society of Maryland was formed. And it is because of you incredible naturalists that we are able to continue. We thank you for your continued dedication and support in the Natural History Society of Maryland’s work to preserve the natural world, and inspire exploration and stewardship in Marylanders of all ages.

The sound of roots music mavericks Western Centuries sits at these crossroads, and their debut album Weight of the World introduces a band as skillful in their musicianship as they are innovative in their writing. With upbeat, barroom dance numbers, lilting, introspective tunes of heartbreak, and everything in between, the album strikes an oft-strived-for but rarely achieved balance between genre-busting experimentation and thoughtful continuity.

West Baltimore Murals and History by Bike
9:30AM – 12:30PM
New Public Sites
3210 Auchentoroly Ter, Baltimore
West Baltimore is full of public art and rich in history. Hop on your bike and join us to explore an inspiring array of murals, as well as sites of transportation and communication innovation. Offered in partnership with Baltimore Heritage. Tickets are $15 for members and $25 for non-members. On the art side, Baltimore began a celebrated public mural program in the 1970s, including many in West Baltimore. We’ll cover murals on Viva House, a Catholic Workers refuge that has been serving the poor for over 50 years, as well as artwork through Sandtown-Winchester, Upton, and Druid Heights that features uplifting works by Mary Carfagno Ferguson, Pontella Mason, Gary Mullen, and Ernest Shaw Jr. Along the way we will learn about the current Art at Work youth program created after the 2015 Uprising to empower youth through employment and mural training. On the history side, West Baltimore has transformed from farms and country estates into a set of primarily rowhouse neighborhoods that is intertwined with the city’s rich social, political, and creative heritage. It was also the location of two seminal events in the 19th century that helped shape world history. No only did Samuel Morse’s first long distance telegraph line start here, so did the first mile of railroad track. We are lucky to have not one but two veteran tour leaders for this outing: Graham Coreil-Allen and Ralph Brown. The total distance is approximately 5 miles and we will ride at leisurely pace.

2600 North Howard Street Suite 1200, Baltimore
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!

Learn how to mount a tropical of your choice on repurposed treated wood from Oak Hill Sawmill. We’ll have staghorn ferns available, as a more traditional mounted plant, and a variety of low-light and bright-light tropicals to choose from. Whichever plant you choose will be suited to stay on the board for a few years before needing to be replanted. We will be using treated wood that is able to sustain continual watering. Each participant will receive a board pre-drilled with screws that is ready for mounting your tropical plant. Sorry, no discount for bringing in your own wood board. Participants will also receive 15% off plants during the workshop. $55 ticket includes all materials. For beverages during the workshop, feel free to BYOB!
