There’s a reason we’re posting this as today’s photo. You’ll see in a few hours what that reason is. Here’s a clue: It rhymes with Schmall Schmest Schmideo. You’ll want to see what we mean. Photo by Chris Sands. He’s the best Chris Sands in the world and you can follow him on Instagram here.

When the parenthesis says “R&B, Soul, Funk, Rock,” you can always rest assured that we’ll be listening. And that’s what Cafe Nola’s website says to describe Mary-El, who will be performing there on Friday. Considering how it’s Tuesday, we thought we’d help get the word out sooner rather than later. Obviously. Anyway, check out this performance of “Agree To Disagree” and reconsider all of your Friday fun.
Let’s give the drummer(s) some! If memory serves, we did this last year, too. Check out a photo of the high school marching band showcase that went down last week (the fine people above are from Governor Thomas Johnson High School). We don’t discriminate ’round these Frederick Playlist parts – all music/musicians/artistry/awesomeness is welcome. Plus, this is a pretty neat photo. Photo by Graham Cullen. He’s amazing on all of our video work, and you can follow him on Twitter here.
You know what? We haven’t done a good job at giving some love to Cafe 611. Therefore: Today’s video. Here is Vital Remains with “Dechristianize.” These dudes have more than 44,000 likes on Facebook, so they win Facebook. They will also be at Cafe 611 tomorrow night with a slew of other bands. It appears as though these guys have no problem melting faces, so if you’re looking for something to do on a Friday night and you want your face melted … .
This is one of our favorite photos from Saturday. Check out what went on behind that huge stack of speakers inside the 200 East Art Haus each time you walked in to shake your money-maker (what a great phrase that is). Also of note: This post is not brought to you by Pioneer, even if you think it might be. Photo by Chris Sands. He’s the best Chris Sands in the world and you can follow him on Instagram here.
We’re still reeling from Saturday, but as for the current day … what’s up tomorrow night? Not A Planet is set to take the Cafe Nola stage. They’re from Ohio and they’ve opened for the Presidents of the United States Of American and Stone Temple Pilots. That’s impressive, right? Right. The fun starts at about 9:30 p.m. Get out and fight those midweek blues.
This could be the very last Video Of The Day in the history of Frederick Playlist. So, why not go out by posting a song from the band that will headline our biggest event to date? Check out this amazing version of “Heavy Bells,” because if this doesn’t get you inspired to come on down Saturday afternoon, then nothing will. T-minus 48 hours.
Here’s The Great Goodloe Byron. This is a shot of him painting the signs currently in the window at the 200 East Art Haus. What do those signs promote? You guessed it: J Roddy Walston & The Business. Old Indian. Heavy Lights. Seaknuckle. Saturday. Doors are at four. Downtown Frederick will never be the same. Photo by Chris Sands.

As you can imagine, this entire week will be devoted to Saturday’s first-ever Frederick Fall Fest. Among the bands performing? Heavy Lights. The event will be in conjunction with Flying Dog, so what better way to remind everyone of everything than to post this video of the band performing at Flying Dog Brewery last summer as they opened for Real Estate? Our thoughts, too. We’ll be back in a few hours with some goodies regarding this weekend’s event. You’re excited, right?
