Tuesday, June 3rd – Vayda / R. Ariel / Adventures of Silver Spaceman / Surf Harp
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – $5

While I’ve heard great things about all the artists on this bill, especially Vayda, but I’m recommending this show for Surf Harp — one of my favorite bands not only in Baltimore but in the world. Matter of fact, they just dropped a silly, trippy new video for their song, “Leather” which will be on an upcoming full-length.

Thursday, June 4th – Cold Beat / Romantic States / Outer Spaces / Boy Spit
Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – $5

I have tickets for another show out of state on Thursday otherwise I’d be at Metro to see Outer Spaces. They are one of my favorite local bands and are a must-see.
