We’re glad to see DJ Dog Dick come back to Baltimore, where he used to live and perform some of the crazier shows we’ve seen. With Dog Dick bringing us the weirdo avant-pop of LP The Life Stains, tonight’s gig at the Crown should be no exception. UMBC’s Center for Art, Design and Visual...

What’s good today?: “An Evening with Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald,” Sound Off Live!, Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra

“An Evening with Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald” is not literally an evening with Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald because both of them are dead.

What’s good today?: Gamernight, The Hustle, ELM

In last year’s Best of Baltimore issue, we named Brews and Board Games Happy Hour the Best Social Happy Hour in town. It seems people have caught on to the idea that drinks and games are generally a good time, including the Sidebar, hosts of Gamernight.  This is a little bit on the nerdier...

The D.C. band makes its way up to Ottobar in support of the album, released in 2013, but...
