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.

For a more comprehensive events calendar, check out the Culture FlyShow Space, or Weekly.Citypaper.com.

Wednesday, August 27th – Open Comedy Night
Windup Space, 12 W. North Ave. at 9:30 PM – $5 (with drink ticket)
Okay, I know comedy isn’t music so I may be cheating a bit here, but if you haven’t been to an open mic comedy night before you don’t know what your missing. The comics can be hilariously good or horribly bad all at once – it’s where newcomers go to learn how to be comics and were seasoned vets try new material.
