THE LAST FLAPPER

WHEN: SATURDAY, AUG 2, 8 PM
WHERE: Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave., Baltimore

Tickets & Info

Based on her her letters and stories, this exciting play is the definitive portrait of Mrs. F. Scott Fitzgerald, the glamorous, fun loving, and tragic Zelda, a mythic presence in literary history with deep ties to Baltimore. The couple spent more of their marriage here than anywhere else, as Zelda’s schizophrenia, perhaps misdiagnosed, was treated at Sheppard Pratt and Johns Hopkins Phipp’s Clinic.

Michael Beresh & the Country Devils

WHEN: SAT AUG 9, 8 PM
Tickets and info

Quiet, humble, and massively talented singer/songwriter Michael Beresh has been a favorite of those who have really known Baltimore music for years. Tonight he brings his alt/country/bluegrass fun what-have-you ensemble The Country Devils for a night of nuanced, fresh songs in the Americana tradition. The Country Devils like their harmony singing, and Beresh describes one of his last albums as “Beach Boys meet country rock.” They’ve shared stages with everyone from Del Mccoury to the Hackensaw Boys to Antibalas Afro Beat. Come see what the accolades are all about as the Country Devils return to the Patterson.
