Monday, April 21st –  Adam Lempel and the Heartbeats / Richard Album and The Singles / The Miss Lonelys
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St., 2nd floor doors at 8:30 PM – free 

Adam Lempel and the Heartbeats are working on a new album and I’m amped for it. Although I do love Lempel’s work the Weekends, The Heartbeats blend of 60s era pop and New Wave-y Rock n’ Roll is infectiously nostalgic. This is a must-see show, especially because it’s free.

Friday, April 25th –  Death Set EP Release Party
Gold Bar, 1910 N. Charles St., 2nd floor doors at 8:30 PM – $10 (Get there early, there WILL be a line) 

The Death Set are from Australia but they spent some time in Baltimore, where they recorded Worldwide and Rad Warehouses to Bad Neighborhoods. They blend bouncy, electro beats with punchy, punk rock, power chords and are known for their high-energy show which often ends in puddles of sweat and smashed equipment.

Saturday, April 26th – Carl Filipiak Jazz Band
Cat’s Eye Pub, 1730 Thames St. at 9PM – $5

Carl Filipiak provides a blend of Rock n’ Roll, jazz, blues and R&B and it’s a blast for a Saturday night. Cat’s Eye is Baltimore-in-a-bar and it’s perfect in a dive-y, colorful, Charm City kind of way.
