Wednesday, June 24th –Eric and Erica / Amanda Glasser / Outer Spaces / Murderboats
Dust Town Studios, 1406 Eutaw Pl. at 9:00 PM – Donation

Outer Spaces are one of my favorite Baltimore bands. Led by songwriter, Cara Satalino, they’re a great blend of pop and folk. Satalino will be playing Outer Spaces songs solo at this show. Murderboats, led by Josh Dean, will also play. His matter-of-fact songwriting sometimes reminds me of Jeff Tweedy and other times Bill Callahan.
