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.

Tuesday, July 29th – Us and Us Only 7″ Release w/ Vundabar / Dungeon Kids / Sun Club
Metro Gallery, 1700 North Charles St. at 8:00 PM – $8 (tickets)

Us and Us Only just dropped their video for “The Horse’s Mouth” which is on their new 7″ Lifting Lake Eerie. To help them celebrate, their friends Dungeon Kids and Sun Club will be throwing down with them. It’s a Tuesday and it’ll probably be a late night, but a little less sleep and a groggy morning will be worth it for these bands…I promise.
