It looks like there will be a lot of rain today, but hey: It’s only 9 a.m. So, while the Downtown Frederick Partnership might very well cancel this evening’s Alive@Five, we thought we’d share this video of the band who is scheduled to play the event anyway. Here’s Moondog Medicine Show with an original tune, “Let My Man Be.” Summer isn’t over quite yet, friends. Celebrate as much tonight (weather permitting, of course), and then get ready for a ruckus In The Street weekend!
Video of the Day
This was released on Friday, but we’re still giddy about the Block Party at 200 East on Saturday, so we thought we’d launch into this short week by posting it here. Check out the cypher that a good chunk of the artists who performed on Saturday did to help promote the event. In case you missed it … well, shame on you. A fabulous time was had by all (hopefully), and thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to all who rapped and rocked with us through the night!
Alive@5. Tonight. You down? The Justin Kalk Orchestra begins its tour de force through Frederick (they’ll be at Cafe Nola this weekend, too) by heading to the creek to rock and roll and then rock some more. Here’s their clip for “The Dirty Thing.” Adjust your Thursdays accordingly.
There are only a handful of Alive@Fives left, and tonight is one you won’t want to miss. Mark DeRose is set to come to town, unless a monsoon descends upon Frederick, Maryland (and according to The Weather Channel, it won’t). In light of tonight’s performance, here’s a clip for “All My Life,” as performed by the Mark DeRose Band. Thank God it’s Thursday. Block Party Week is almost here!
It’s the first Tuesday all summer that we won’t have music tonight (for free!) tonight along Carroll Creek. So, this is our sad face. To commemorate the good times, though, we thought we’d share this video we shot of the final Levitt Amp performance, which featured Hard Swimmin’ Fish, one week ago tonight. The crowd was amazing. The band was great. A fantastic time was had by all. We miss you, Levitt Amp. Please come back next year.
Saturday night. Big Cork Vineyard. Jeff Cosgrove is going to headline our first installment of Jazz In The Vines. He’ll be with his trio featuring Brad Linde on saxophone and Mark Lysher on bass. Here, they perform Paul Motian’s “Victoria” as part of the WAU Jazz Festival. The night kicks off at 6 p.m. Tickets are $20, but that gets you a glass of any wine you want. Bring a picnic. Bring the love. We’ll bring the jazz. You in?
We thought it’d be a good idea to share this Frederick Playlist Presents … performance of Hard Swimmin’ Fish’s “Ain’t It Hard” on this fine day. Why? Because these guys are performing tonight as part of the Levitt Amp free concert series along the creek. Thing is … this is the final Tuesday of the series! Wow, that went fast, didn’t it? So, what better way to put a cap on the summer than to stroll on down to the creek and check out these guys for free? The fun begins at 7 p.m. We’ll see you there.
Oh, what a beautiful Thursday morning! It’s supposed to stay sunny and kind throughout today, which can only mean one thing: Alive@Five is all systems go! Tonight, you’ll find Matt Bednarsky taking the stage along Carroll Creek at 5 p.m. It’s with that in mind that we present this official clip for his “I’ll Find A Reason.” There really isn’t much of a better way to kick off an August weekend, is there?
Today’s video features Todd Marcus, why? That’s right: Because he’s the next installment of the Levitt Amp free concert series down by the creek tonight. He’ll be bringing his orchestra and releasing a CD all in Frederick! That’s excitement. The fun kicks off at 7 p.m. and it’s all ages. Some of us have to meet with George P. Levitt, or Mike C. Amp, or whomever shows up from Levitt Amp later today, but that’s neither here nor there. So, instead of reading more babble from us, listen to this amazingness and adjust your Tuesday night accordingly.
Oh, these things just keep getting better. Today’s video is yet another promotional clip from the lovely guys in Time Columns concerning this Saturday’s concert at 200 East Patrick St. right in the heart of downtown Frederick, Maryland. Kabob-O-Taj, Time Columns. Giraffes? Giraffes!. It’s going to be a hell of a night. Just ask those people walking by that giraffe!
