Long, tall and gorgeous, Baltimore’s Washington Monument stands proudly in the classy Mount Vernon neighborhood.
Designed in the early 1800’s by the same architect who created the better-known Washington Monument in D.C., it can be seen from inside the sophisticated Walter’s Art Gallery and is only steps away from the musically rambunctious Peabody Institute. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s that time of year again. It’s the time when suddenly everyone around you appears to be in a loving relationship whereas the longest relationship you’ve had lately has been with a tub of Ben & Jerry’s. That’s right; it’s Valentine’s Day, or, as I like to call it, Singles Awareness Day.
This year Boulder Garden Cafe has decided to celebrate with an Anti-Valentine’s Day dinner from 5:30 to 7:30 today. So grab all of your single and lonely friends and head over to Boulder while WLOY plays some depressingly upbeat music to really get you in the spirit of this joyous occasion.

Poor Spokes watched from outside the lines as less-worthy post-rockers enjoyed oodles more fame than they. With soaring violins and condensed song lengths, Spokes crafted a mellifluous Shortcut to Enjoying Post-Rock. Somehow the Englishmen crammed the magic of every spellbinding post-rock record you’ve heard into a delightfully accessible package. Three years later, Spokes sound bent on transforming this winning formula, and unexpectedly it pays off. Read the rest of this entry »

Monster trucks. Monster drivers. MONSTER JAM.
That’s right, the carnival of carnage is coming to Baltimore at the end of February, setting up shop at the 1st Mariner Arena from the 25th until the 27th.

Appearing in four separate installments, there will be competitions in both racing, as well as performing freestyle tricks with these monstrous machines.
