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

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!

Lowing and Barnes are both responsible for setting up the show. Read More →
When vacant rowhomes are demolished or redeveloped, marble steps are usually lost and forgotten. So says Baltimore sculptor Sebastian Martorana. And he should know; he occasionally carves sculptures from the 1,000-pound slabs. When Telesis Corp. was looking for a way to reuse the steps it had salvaged from a multimillion-dollar redevelopment project in East Baltimore Midway (east of Barclay), the company called him.
