July 2nd–

Hey everyone. Ready for the holiday weekend? I’m running errands today and then off to check out Transformers tonight, with two or three other reviews left to bang out –including two great new flicks playing at The Charles this weekend and The Weekly Creepy. Also hope to get a Fantastic Fest overview out and a Karl Malden tribute. Lots of stuff.  But, before I head out for the day, I wanted to give you a heads up on a FREE opportunity to see a couple of bands. This concert comes courtesy of WTMD, the Towson public radio station. TMD is a wonderfully eclectic station that represents the Baltimore musical scene, and independent music in general, well. The concerts are great fun, with food, drink and good times to be had in abundance. The performers really give it their all, despite the ‘free’ part. I’ve checked out the music of both bands playing tonight, and it sounds like good stuff. Wish I could make it. Alas, I’ll be watching giant things hit other giant things. Enjoy! Check out the WTMD website HERE and the info for the concert below.

First Thursday Concert: Guggenheim Grotto; Pressing Strings

Irish folk duo Guggenheim Grotto bring their bright harmonies and infectious lyrics from their sophomore release Happy the Man to West Mt. Vernon Park for July’s First Thursday concert.
