Sunday, July 6th – Crying / Told Slant / Dungeon Kids / Infinity Crush / Ricky 
Metro Gallery, 1700 N Charles St. at 7:00 PM – $10 

This is a packed bill and a great way to close out your July 4th weekend. Crying are a buzz-worthy synth-pop band out of New York and of course you can NEVER go wrong with Dungeon Kids, probably my favorite Baltimore band.
