The Teavolve open mic happens every Monday barring flooding or alien assault. Signup starts at 6pm, performances roll from 7-10pm. In deference to the venue we keep things PG-13 & in deference to getting everyone on the stage – no amps, drumkits, 2 pieces or 10 minutes whichever’s shorter. Most weeks we’re joined by a special featured artist in the middle of the night and though admission’s free, we hope you’ll bring a little something for their tip jar! Tonight we’re joined by Anna PS. “Anna and her music are one and the same. Both are genuine. Both are honest. Both are irresistible. You’ll love the simple and true emotion of her songs, her spare instrumentation and the plaintive clarity of her vocals. As a bonus, if you get the chance to see her perform live and to chat with her, you’ll love her, too. ‘Umbrella’ is contemplative and reflective – it’s best listened to when you feel the same way, maybe with a glass of good wine. Treat yourself!”

Up into the Clockworks at the Bromo Seltzer Tower
11AM – 12PM
Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower
21 S Eutaw St, Baltimore
Always one for flamboyance, Captain Isaac Emerson came back from a trip to Italy and decided he wanted to build a new factory in downtown Baltimore and that it should look like Florence’s fabulous town hall, the Palazzo Vecchio. Completed in 1911, the tower’s four clocks each measure 24 feet across, a foot more London’s Big Ben, and the tower itself was the tallest building in Baltimore at the time. Our tour through the building will include a trip up the ships stairs into the clockworks at the top to look at the tick-tock operation in process and peer out the translucent windows. We’ll also stop in at the museum room that holds the world’s largest collection ephemera from Captain Emerson, Bromo Seltzer, and Maryland Glass. And along the way, we’ll get a taste of the newest art that comes from the Tower’s artists: it is now home to dozens of local art studios. If you’ve wondered what goes on in the Bromo Seltzer Tower and how the imposing clocks actually work, now’s your chance!
