Things to do in Baltimore this week 5/6/19

Lots of fun happenings this week. I’m keeping it causal early this week. Then on Thursday the fun begins with the Bmore Gal Pal’s Rose on the Roof at The Lord Baltimore Hotel. It’s going to be so much fun and it’s sold out. Hopefully you were lucky enough to get a ticket. On Friday I’m going to opening night of Queens Girl in the World at Everyman Theatre. Every show they produce is great but I think this one is going to be spectacular! Make sure you see it during it’s run. Not sure what I’m doing on Saturday and Sunday yet, but I’ll figure it out soon! Have fun!

Monday, May 6

Walk the Murals of Station North
10AM – 10:45AM OR 11AM – 1PM
Greenmount Coffee Lab
1400 Greenmount Avenue, Baltimore
For our tour, we will meet at the Greenmount Coffee Lab at Open Works Bmore, a maker space with a parking lot and coffeehouse. Don’t miss the electronic photo booth on the south wall in the lobby (it’s free!); a great way to commemorate your tour and the pic will be waiting in your email inbox. 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!

Screening: More Art Upstairs
7PM – 10PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
For three weeks in September, beer-fueled debates in the bars of one Michigan town aren’t about sports and politics but art. Hundreds of thousands of people come to Grand Rapids to engage with blue-chip artists in ways that rarely happen at Art Basel or other established art events, unless you’re a major collector or critic. More Art Upstairs follows four accomplished artists as they compete at ArtPrize, a populist experiment that’s challenging the art world’s hierarchy by giving the public the power to decide which art will win almost half the $500,000 in prize money. What attracts our artists is the chance to win this public vote, but also to gain exposure to some of the country’s top art critics, who dash into town to select which art will win the rest of the prize money. Local bistros, bars, and abandoned buildings showcase the work – more than 1500 creations – and the artists are compelled to be outgoing. They stand next to their art all day, talking to people who are often experiencing contemporary art for the first time. With unmatched access to artists, organizers, jurors, and visitors, the film captures the entire wild ride of this competition. The result – a thoughtful yet exuberant experience about this curious confluence of paintings, populism, and the notion that art can express something important about what it means to be human.

Power, Corruption & Changing How Baltimore is Governed
6PM – 8:30PM
Ida B’s Table
235 Holliday Street, Baltimore
Powerful commercial interests dominate Baltimore’s city government, where corruption and backroom deals are part of the fabric of how decisions are made. The recent scandal involving Mayor Pugh is part of a long history of political office being used for personal gain and handing over public funds and favors to wealthy elites. Can city charter amendments aimed at democratizing Baltimore’s government put more power into the hands of the community? Charter amendments could help eliminate the “all-powerful mayor”; get big money out of city elections; establish community control of the police; and create a transparent budgeting process that prioritizes making the city safer by reducing poverty and unemployment. Is any of this possible without an organized and engaged people’s movement? Come to Real Talk Tho to discuss how to make this happen.

The Suitcase Junket w/ Ali McGuirk
7:30PM – 10:30PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Matt Lorenz (aka The Suitcase Junket) pulls from a fantastically sonic palette, shaping his songs with elements of jangly folk, fuzzed-out blues and more all played by one man on an indescribable list of instruments. The Suitcase Junket was raised in Cavendish, Vermont, the son of schoolteachers. He learned to sing by copying his sister Kate; the siblings are two-thirds of the touring trio Rusty Belle. Lorenz graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 2004, having taught himself to throat-sing, inspired by a South Indian cooking class. On moving day, he pulled a guitar, filled with mold and worse for wear, from a dorm dumpster. He fixed it up and started pulling songs out of it. That was the beginning.

This vital story asks us to remember a dark moment in world history through the eyes of a young girl: Poignant and powerful, Anne Frank’s hopes and dreams shine in her words penned while hiding during the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands. This recent adaptation, containing more of Anne’s original writing and more forthright about the characters’ Judaism, makes this play more necessary than ever.

The Producers
May 3 – 12, Fr & Sat 8PM, Sun 4PM
Third Wall Productions
1108 Providence Road, Baltimore
The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!” (Not recommended for under 17.)

The Producers
May 3 – 12, Fr & Sat 8PM, Sun 4PM
Third Wall Productions
1108 Providence Road, Baltimore
The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime for Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!” (Not recommended for under 17.)

We’ve got Zappa alum Arthur Barrow playing keys with us for the tour, along with vocalist Corey Crider (LA Philharmonic, Chicago Lyric Opera), and guitarist Marcus Rezak (Shred Is Dead). This isn’t strictly a “tribute” band – doing a note-for-note rendition of Song X from Album Y while staring at their shoes didn’t seem like the proper way to go about it. The result is a show that pays respect to Zappa’s legacy but is still new and different and dangerous.
