Bmore Music Picks is a weekly feature that highlights shows, concerts or events to check out in Baltimore (and the surrounding area). While it’s not a comprehensive events calendar, our picks are diverse and may highlight jazz, rock, folk, noise, punk, hip-hop, R&B, metal, experimental or just about any other sub-genre or style that helps make Baltimore’s music scene varied and vibrant.

Friday, July 25th – Surf Harp / Sun Club / Hang Men
The Holy Underground, 2021 Maryland Ave at 8:30PM

Add Dungeon Kids to this bill and you’d have my three favorite Baltimore bands. Surf Harp and Sun Club both play pop music, but from two very different lenses. This show is a must-see, especially if you’ve never been to the DIY space, The Holy Underground. Stop in to The Beatnik for a cocktail beforehand, which is just half-a-block up the street.

More info here.

This festival, which runs from 3 to 5PM, includes a beginner lesson from Jared Denhard. You got to give to Creative Alliance for always bringing unique and diverse music to Baltimore. Have you ever been to a Ukelele festival before? Didn’t think so.

More info here.
