Pit Makers & Rumpshakers
Baltimore Rock Opera Society (BROS) Metro Gallery takeover for Artscape!
BROS will be invading the Metro Gallery for Artscape this year, curating two nights of rock shows and a hyper-reality museum experience featuring some of the most impressive and crazed artwork, props, puppets and artifacts from the first 8 years of Baltimore’s original rock opera performance troupe. The BROS Museum gallery will feature an audio tour as well as artwork for sale. Friday and Saturday night of Artscape (July 21st and 22nd) BROS will be hosting ticketed live rock shows in two different flavors after the festival concerts end. Friday nights' "Pit-Makers" concert will feature excellent high-energy rock and punk and genre-mashing bands such as Black Lung, Garbage Masher, VLMA, and Soul Cannon. Saturday's "Rump Shakers" will feature danceable rock and funk music including "F" the Funky Bass and Beats band, Abby Normal (featuring covers from female-fronted rock groups), and The Terrible Secret Of Lunastus House band playing original glam-rock and groin-grooving anthems. DJ Equipment closes down the party with an epic alien dance party.
Come support the BROS as we continue to raise money for the BROS Forever Home! Baltimore deserves to have rock and roll productions forever into the future of this great city!
Soul Cannon never stops pushing the boundaries of musical creation, both on the stage and off. A 4-piece hip-hop band consisting of three conservatory-trained jazz musicians and the most dynamic emcee in Baltimore, Soul Cannon’s music captivates hip-hop heads and music intellectuals alike. Recently named “Best Live Band” by the Baltimore City Paper, the group electrifies audiences at its shows with a combination of constant innovation, unparalleled collaboration, and pure sweat.
This special chemistry all began when forward thinking Baltimore emcee Eze Jackson linked up with three musical crossbreeds who came from across the country to attend the Peabody Conservatory. Unbeknownst to them, the four members had been brought together by a force larger than their individual selves, allowing them to forge musical connections and possibilities that have never been heard but have always been felt by true lovers of music. This radical element has already put Soul Cannon together onstage with renowned acts such as Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Hi-Tek, Jay Electronica, DJ Logic, People Under The Stairs, Blu, J.Davey, Busdriver and Grand Buffet.
In the brutally cold winter of 2014, Black Lung emerged from Baltimore's underbelly with unprecedented volume. This trio of Adam Bufano, Elias Mays Schutzman (both of The Flying Eyes) and multi-instrumentalist Dave Cavalier, moves air with sonic pain and bliss. After releasing their self-titled debut and being named "Best New Band" by the Baltimore City Paper, they embarked on a European tour in 2015, including a performance at the Rockpalast Crossroads Festival in Germany. Black Lung’s new album, See The Enemy, was produced by J. Robbins (The Sword, Clutch) and is scheduled for release on April 29th, 2016, on Noisolution. They will be supporting the album with a European tour in spring, including an appearance at the Freak Valley Festival with Graveyard and Dead Meadow. The storm is coming…
