Closing Out September in The Baltimore Region

Fall is upon us and September is coming to an end. Fortunately, good music continues to find its way through the region.

The week starts off with the beats of Ladytron and CSS finding their way to the 9:30 Club on Monday Night.

Tuesday brings Kansas City's The New Tragedies to The Sidebar. Yo La Tengo support their brand new album at the 9:30 Club.

Wednesday night is kind of crazy around here. Drive-By Truckers and Bobby Bare, Jr. stop for a date at Chameleon Club. Snowden and their internet buzz drop in at The Talking Head. Sunset Rubdown make an appearance at Black Cat. In my opinion, the show of the night happens at Sonar when The Long Winters, What Made Milwaukee Famous and Menomena hit the stage.

Things don't slow down from there. On Thursday, The Mountain Goats and Christine Fellows make a stop at Black Cat. DC's Lejeune, Baltimore's Pontiak and Raleigh, NC's DMVB play a show at DC9. Local favorites The Payola Reserve and Blonde Hair Blue Eyes play The Talking Head. If you miss this show, Blonde Hair Blue Eyes play Red House Tavern in Canton on Friday night. Massive Attack plays to two full houses at the 9:30 Club on Thursday and Friday.

Friday night starts off right with Los Lobos at the Maritime Magic fundraiser. Mates of State and Starlight Mints play an early show at Chameleon Club. Finally, Mobius Band bring the indie love to Sonar.

Like the rest of the week, Saturday night has another full slate of shows. Local legends Laughing Colors, have their yearly reunion show at Ram's Head Live. For those up for a short trip, Bob Schneider and Charlie Mars bring the singer songwriter love to Jammin' Java. Even the metalheads have something to savor when Tool brings their road show to the Verizon Center. In what should be a great show on Saturday night, DC's Paul Michel and Columbus OH's The Receiver, release their albums and start their US Tour at DC9. NYC's Soft will be providing support.

Where will I be this weekend? I am heading to the beach for the Dewey Beach Music Conference in Deleware. The free showcase runs from Thursday through Saturday and is headlined by Mellowdrone on Saturday night.

If you can't find someone to see this week, you really aren't trying. If I missed anything, let me know.
