The Ravens aren't playing this weekend, but that doesn't mean you can't hit the local watering holes. There are four distinct musical acts performing around town this weekend.
“You’ll hear songs that haven’t been run into the ground—some you’ll know and some you won’t,” the band writes.
On Saturday, Perry’s will host Strait Shooter, a Baltimore-based band known for its rock 'n' roll and country covers. There are song samples on the band’s website featuring renditions of “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” by Tom Petty, and “3 a.m." by Matchbox Twenty.
Full disclosure: I saw Strait Shooter perform on the Ocean City boardwalk over the summer and enjoyed myself.
Kaufmann’s Tavern in Gambrills has music this weekend as well, beginning with Baltimore rock/country favorite Mike Butler. His video for the song “Charm City” is a hoot (features crabs spread out over newspaper in the back seat of a limousine), and the song “Choptank River Boys” is a local favorite.
Kaufmann’s will also have music from PJ and Neal. I am still on a search for more information about this duo, and will continue to dream that it’s Pearl Jam and Neil Young performing together, unless I am told otherwise. Here’s them performing "Throw Your Hatred Down."
