Things to do in Baltimore this week 4/1/19

Sorry this is late, I was out with the GalPals. Consistently nice weather means lots of goings on in the city this week. I’m taking a break during the week because my March schedule almost killed me. Then I’m back at it again on Friday. I’m going to Out Of Order at Maryland Art Place. It’s your chance to find that perfect piece of artwork you’ve been searching for at a great price. Plus there will be good food and a fun afterparty. On Saturday morning I’m volunteering at the Festival for the Animals at Druid Hill Park. It’s the Maryland SPCA‘s main fundraiser for the year. Come see me at the Family Fun Tent and support some super cute furry friends. Saturday evening I’m going to see Submersive Productions‘s MASS/Rabble at the Baltimore War Memorial. I can’t really tell you what you are going to experience if you go but it will be awesome so catch it during it’s short run in Baltimore. Sunday is the day I’ve been waiting for since December, Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar Opening Day 2019! I can’t wait to visit all my favorite vendors and buy some delicious food/produce. I like to go right when they open at 7 so you will have to be an early bird if you want to catch me!

After guests have checked in, we will then walk to about 60 points of interest, seeing quite a lot of street art, but also learning the history of this often overlooked urban landscape. We will enjoy a walking a loop of about 2.5 miles with a small pit stop towards the end for refreshment before heading back to open works. On this walk, we will enjoy the alleyways, parks, and farms of the often underrated, but constantly surprising revitalized neighborhood of Station North Arts & Entertainment District. Locals and travelers alike will enjoy this very instagrammable look at a gem of a neighborhood. Depending on the size of the group and speed of walking the time for finishing might be slightly later. There are periodical trivia questions and easter eggs hidden along the way – be ready to get competitive and rewarded with candy!

An Evening with Gary Thomas
8PM & 9:30PM
An die Musik
409 N Charles St, Baltimore
Saxophonist and flutist Gary Thomas established himself in the 1980s as one of the most jarring soloists of his generation, especially against somewhat chaotic backdrops such as the electronic-tinged accompaniment of guitar, keyboards, bass and drums on Seventh Quadrant(1987) and Code Violations (1988). In addition to 11 recording dates as a leader, his work on more than 80 recordings as a featured sideman reflects his status as one of the most coveted saxophonists on the jazz scene today. Commissioned by Baltimore Magazine to compose and record a suite of music representing a collection of more than fifty works of art featured in the September 2005 issue. The most recent highlights of Thomas’ activities would include his tenure with the British guitarist John McLaughlin from 1997 to 1999, and he has been a member of the Herbie Hancock Quartet since 2002.

“Wizard People, Dear Reader” – FREE Film Screening!
6PM – 8:45PM
Ottobar
2549 N Howard St, Baltimore
For the uninitiated: Wizard People, Dear Reader was released by Arkansas comedian, musician, animator, and comic artist Brad Neely in 2004. It’s ostensibly a DVD commentary of the first Harry Potter film. In his nasally way, Neely talks/squawks in a drawl reminiscent of Gilbert Gottfried, addressing the “dear reader” directly with his wild misinterpretations of the Harry Potter mythos, the action onscreen, and its intent. His tangents are absurdist, surreal, and darkly hilarious—by the end you are left with a bizarro Harry Potter universe that irrevocably alters how you think of Harry, “Ronny The Bear,” and “Haggar The Horrible.” If you’re not familiar with Neely’s work, hop online and search for CreasedComics, Baby Cakes, and The Professor Brothers (“Prisoner Christmas” is our hot tip.) Wizard People is straight from the depths of his sublime imagination. Wizard People, Dear Reader is a cultural artifact but, like all cult masterpieces, you either get it, or you don’t. As one fan has simply said: “It’s amazing. It’s Harry Potter as narrated by a guy only partly aware of the books.”

Folkal Point Series: Amy Rigby and Ms. Sara
7:30PM – 10:30PM
An die Musik
409 N Charles St, Baltimore
Amy Rigby was dubbed “one of America’s greatest songwriters” by Nashville Scene. The Old Guys has received ecstatic reviews in the US and UK. NPR/Fresh Air, Magnet magazine, Jersey Beat and Robert Christgau in Noisey/VICE have all called it one of the best albums of 2018. From the New Yorker (Feb 2019): Raucous reflection is still Rigby’s strong suit, but, on a song like “From Philip Roth to R Zimmerman,” in which she seems to side with the late author over the Nobel-laureate musician, she’s clearly on to some new priorities.

Prepare to be moved. Guests of all levels of physical ability are invited to join our ensemble of thirty movers in the vast space of Baltimore’s War Memorial for Submersive Productions largest-scale work to date.

Like any culinary trend, relationships are destined to evolve over time—but can the recipe of friendship retain its zest if the key ingredients begin to change? A fabulous dinner at the home of food writers Gabe and Karen proves hard to swallow when Beth drops the bomb that husband Tom wants out of their 12-year marriage. Suddenly, both couples find themselves grappling with questions of loyalty, individuality, and commitment in Donald Margulies’ deliciously funny, sharply observed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama—celebrating its 20th anniversary this season with the time-tested flavor and richness of a classic dish.

April 5 – May 5, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Fells Point Corner Theatre

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. I’m so sorry you had to find out this way… From the imagination of one of the most celebrated modern playwrights comes the wildly energetic and nimble play on words, puns and Shakespeare. The absurd, existential comedy by Tom Stoppard features virtually every character who died in Hamlet. Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is a dazzling high wire act balancing the monotony of being a bit player in someone else’s story and the profound meaning of simply being alive… or dead.

Suddenly, both couples find themselves grappling with questions of loyalty, individuality, and commitment in Donald Margulies’ deliciously funny, sharply observed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama—celebrating its 20th anniversary this season with the time-tested flavor and richness of a classic dish.

As King Henry IV nears death, warring among the nobility continues: The defeated rebels regroup, aligned now with Hotspur against the crown. Prince Hal’s friend, the aging tavern-brawler Falstaff, is up to his unscrupulous tricks and scene-stealing humor.

Through Hal’s journey to the throne, Shakespeare invites us to explore themes of family, duty, leadership, succession, and legacy.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard at FPCT
April 5 – May 5, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Fells Point Corner Theatre
251 S Ann St, Baltimore
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. I’m so sorry you had to find out this way… From the imagination of one of the most celebrated modern playwrights comes the wildly energetic and nimble play on words, puns and Shakespeare. The absurd, existential comedy by Tom Stoppard features virtually every character who died in Hamlet. Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is a dazzling high wire act balancing the monotony of being a bit player in someone else’s story and the profound meaning of simply being alive… or dead.

Spotlighters Theatre
817 Saint Paul St, Baltimore
Told from the perspective of those who came of age in this enigmatic decade, they look back on a host of issues ranging from their first Beehive Dance to the challenges we faced as a nation – civil rights – women’s rights – politics – all accomplished by an array of the most celebrated and memorable songs of the era. From solo powerhouses like Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, and Janis Joplin to glamorous girl groups such as The Supremes and TheShirelles, Beehive the 60’s Musical is the ultimate celebration of 1960’s female empowerment. Featuring classics such as My Boyfriend’s Back, Be My Baby, Respect, and Proud Mary, Beehive nostalgically recalls the days of miniskirts, transistor radios and flower power.
