Things to do in Baltimore this week 5/28/18

A super busy event filled weekend approaches. Good luck deciding what to do. I’m checking out “Cinema Shtick” on Friday. Super sad to be missing the 7th Annual Taste Of 3 Cities on Saturday. Someone please eat some fried cheese curds for me! If you are looking for a fun Saturday night, you don’t want to miss the  Summer & Smoke: A Southern Gothic Gala! at Single Carrot Theatre! I helped plan the party so you know its going to be a good time.

Meanwhile, our soundtrack is a fun, dynamic mix of music made by multi-instrumentalist composers Kate Porter and Rosie Langabeer. The film is FREE and starts a little after 7PM. I bring the popcorn and you bring yourself. BTW: how many films from 1912-1930 have you seen all the way through? Over 10,000 were made!, and they were as varied a film experience as films made today.

As Mace travels through the ranks and to the top of the world of professional wrestling as entertainment, the audience is taken on a journey through notions of race, culture, xenophobia, and the American Dream.

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).

The Annex Theater
219 Park Ave, Baltimore
Life or Theatre? Written and Directed by Carly J. Bales. Based on the life and work of Charlotte Salomon. Life or Theatre? explodes the work and subconscious of the 20th century expressionist painter Charlotte Salomon on stage, fusing her autobiographical prose and expressionist painting with classical music, cinema, and theatre into a singular expression of her self – a demand by a young woman to exist in a world that demanded otherwise.

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.”

Winter in America: Gil Scott-Heron Tribute
8PM – 11PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Speaking truth to power, the words and music of the late Gil Scott Heron are needed today more than ever. Lifelong funkateer Joe Keyes “The Late Bloomer” will celebrate the man and his music. Since 2010, Joe Keyes has been at the helm of The Late Bloomer Band, an all-star collective of top talent in the Baltimore and Washington D.C. music scenes. As a band, these musicians have earned the privilege of collaborating with members of Parliament-Funkadelic and Fishbone. While Keyes channels the likes of Miles Davis, Sun Ra and P-Funk in conducting The Late Bloomer Band through funk and jazz odysseys, the frontman is truly at home when singing the songs of soul/jazz poet and fusion musician Gil Scott-Heron. He has amazing presence on stage, and his massive band are a force to be reckoned with.

The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity
May 31 – Jun 17, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 4PM
Cohesion Theatre Company

A timely satire that probes that nature of cultural stereotypes in our collective consciousness, The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity follows Macedonio Guerra, also known as “Mace,” a Puerto Rican wrestler from the Bronx, who is constantly the “jobber,” or the fall guy in one of the biggest television wrestling companies in the country. As Mace travels through the ranks and to the top of the world of professional wrestling as entertainment, the audience is taken on a journey through notions of race, culture, xenophobia, and the American Dream.

Mama Africa: Miriam Makeba
4:30PM – 7:30PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Miriam Makeba was the first African musician to become a true international star. Her music – which influenced artists across the globe – always remained anchored in her traditional South African roots and conveyed strong messages against racism and poverty. Makeba was forced into a life in exile after staring in the 1959 documentary film Come Back Africa which exposed the harsh realities of apartheid. She sang for John F. Kennedy and Marlon Brando; performed with Harry Belafonte, Nina Simone, and Dizzie Gillespie; was married to Hugh Masekela and also the radical Black Panther, Stokely Carmichael. Her life was tumultuous but always fascinating. She stood for truth and justice, fought for the oppressed, and campaigned tirelessly against apartheid.
