Yahoo! Travel Pits Baltimore Against D.C.

Yahoo! Travel

Yahoo! Travel has published an article and readers’ poll “to determine once and for all” how Baltimore and Washington, D.C., stack up against each other as travel destinations. Well, it will be nice to finally have that settled!

Of course, the article’s click-intensive premise is a little silly, but it did give me a couple ideas of what to do the next time I’m in D.C., and it’s always interesting to see your own city summed up in one these things.

I’m not sure whether I’d agree without reservation that “traffic in the city’s core is almost never too tough to take.” But maybe I’m spoiled. Certainly, it’s nothing compared to D.C.’s pentagram-shaped traffic hellscape. Read More →

MICA Named 10th ‘Most Hipster’ Campus in US

MICA, 10th most hipster campus in US

I am so glad Baltimore magazine brought this list of “The 10 Most Hipster Campuses 2014″ to my attention. I may have otherwise never had a chance to read these opening sentences: “Hipsters appreciate more than rocking flannel and chugging Pabst Blue Ribbon. They also appreciate skinny jeans, bands you never heard of and, above all, a place of higher learning where they’re able to find like-minded individuals.”

Remember, people, hipsters are not just about the flannel and Pabst! They’re also way, way about the jeans! (It’d have to be about more than flannel and PBR, or else most of my Northern New York redneck relatives — whom I adore — would qualify.) Read More →

Despite Yesterday’s Arrest, Anti-Zionist Activist Norman Finkelstein to Lecture in Station North Tonight

Norman Finkelstein – Lecture tonight / 7:30pm / Red Emma’s

Tonight at 7:30, Red Emma’s Bookstore Coffeehouse will host Jewish anti-Zionist and activist Norman G. Finkelstein for a free lecture and discussion of Middle East politics.

In light of the fact that yesterday Finkelstein and a few dozen anti-Israel protestors were arrested in front of the United Nations in New York City for civil disobedience, Red Emma’s, which expected the event to garner plenty of attention on its own, is expecting a much more substantial turnout. According to Red Emma’s worker-owner Cullen Nawolkowsky, Finkelstein has been released, and will speak tonight despite yesterday’s detention.

Since earning his doctorate in politics in 1988 from Princeton University, Finkelstein has taught at 5 Universities and published nine books addressing Middle East politics, specifically criticizing the Israeli occupation of Gaza (This Time We Went Too Far: Truth and Consequences of the Gaza Invasion, 2011) Read More →

Baltimore Party-Rap Duo AK Slaughter Are Playing Their Final Show

AK Slaughter

Aran Keating and Emily Slaughter

After 3 EPs, a mixtape, several compilation appearances, and eight years of joyous, barn-burning live shows, Baltimore hip-hop duo AK Slaughter are breaking up. Lucky for us, they’re ending their run with a final EP, It’s Not You… It’s Us, and a farewell show at Metro Gallery in Station North on Aug. 1.

AK Slaughter distinguished themselves in the Baltimore rap scene and beyond with AK’s old-school-inspired, sample-heavy beats and live DJing as well as Emily Slaughter’s extreeeemely laid back delivery. Sure, you’ll be able to spin those records forever, but their upbeat live shows, full of that sense of spontaneous creation that is the lifeblood of hip-hop, are coming to an end!

“Society is obsessed with whether technology will enlighten us, destroy everything, or enslave us,” wrote Baltimore artist Killian Barnes in an email earlier this week. “I like to think that I can encapsulate that anxiety in painting.” In the group exhibition “Bald Ego,” Barnes’s paintings are currently on view along with the sculptures of Rachel Lowing (Michigan) and paintings of Alexander Shaw (New York) at the Annex 2e, a gallery and living space on Oliver Street. Lowing and Barnes are both responsible for setting up the show. Read More →
