Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Photography on Thursday 28 February 2013

Noah Rabinowitz and Lotfy Nathan have been travelling together on a mission to find the Twelve O’Clock Boyz, an urban tribe of bikers in the heart of Baltimore.

(This Is Why) I Can’t Wear White by Flock of Dimes

Nick Zorn Reader Find

By Nick Zorn in New Music on Tuesday 13 November 2012

Before I wandered over to my current residence in Berlin, I spent four years sampling Baltimore’s seemingly endless source of musical inspiration. Famous for producing Animal Collective, Beach House and Dan Deacon, Baltimore’s cheap rents and ample space for creative exploration have attracted the best the East Coast has to offer, and then some. Among […]

GPS drawings from cycling by Christopher Wallace

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Wednesday 2 May 2012

Christopher Wallace’s drawing tools of choice are a bicycle and GPS. His canvas of choice is his Baltimore neighborhood. First he plans his routes with something in mind (check out his free-style hydra and centaur), then he takes to the bike trail while tracking his movements using GPS. Geeky and awfully cheeky.

Nation’s largest pinball museum to open in Baltimore

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Trends on Thursday 29 September 2011

People are often skeptical when I tell them Baltimore is one of the best cities in America, mainly because they only know the city via The Wire and John Waters movies. Maybe this will convince them: the country’s largest pinball museum will open in Charm City by the end of the year.

Lower Dens Exxon Ad

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Sunday 18 September 2011

At the risk of tarnishing my metal cred (if it ever even existed), I really love Lower Dens. I think front-woman Jana Hunter writes gorgeous lyrics, and the band’s music is catchy and accessible without being too polished or safe.

By kinsey lane in New Art on Tuesday 19 July 2011

Do they remind anyone else of Run, Lola, Run?

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Events on Thursday 14 July 2011

Yup, only in Baltimore. This creative hotspot is now home to the oddest short course race on the planet: ‘Run For Your Lives is an apocalyptic 5K obstacle race. But you’re not just running against the clock. You’re running from brain-hungry, virus-spreading, bloody zombies’. And if that isn’t enough, at the end of it all, there’s a full-on celebration, ‘or zombie transformation’, as they put it, with live music, food, and beer. It all takes place on October 22.

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Saturday 11 June 2011

My friend Bethany Dinsick, who I’ve posted about a couple times, just posted her new video for her song, Bad Lil’ Boy. It’s a great, goofy parody and celebration of the DIY culture we’re embedded in here in Baltimore that’s an interesting contrast to the ethereal feel of Dinsick’s music.
