Tuesday, March 23rd – Karaoke Forever at The Crown
The Crown (Blue Room), 1910 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – FREE 

I’ve never been the biggest karaoke fan, but The Crown’s Tuesday karaoke night is a blast. No shame, no modesty, no holds-back. It really gets going around 10:30 or so and makes a good companion to whatever show is happening across the hall in the Red Room, which on this Tuesday happens to be a Wham City show.

More info here.

Thursday, March 25th – Amen Dunes / Weyes Blood / Holy Ghost Party
Metro Gallery, 1700 N Charles St. at 9:00 PM – $10

My friend Phil Bolton of Surf Harp designed the poster for this show and really got me into Weyes Blood as a result. Holy Ghost Party played a BmoreArt/WTMD event last year and they were killer. Amen Dunes’ hypnotic folk-rock is entrancing. This is a must-see this week.
