Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Honorable Mention: Golf-PGA Tour The McGladrey Classic (Thursday-Sunday 11am from Sea Island, GA live on Golf Channel); WNBA Finals: Indiana Fever vs. Minnesota Lynx (Game 2 Wednesday 8pm from Minneapolis live on ESPN, Game 3 Friday 8pm from Indianapolis live on ESPN2 Game 4 if necessary Sunday 8pm from Indianapolis live on ESPN2); Boxing: Danny Garcia vs. Erik Morales II (Saturday 8pm from Brooklyn live on Showtime)

10. Rebelution (Thursday 8:30pm Rams Head Live), Indigo Girls (Saturday 9pm Rams Head Live); Flobots (Tuesday 7pm Recher Theatre); All Mighty Senators (Saturday 8pm 8×10 Club); Blues Traveler (Sunday 8:30pm Rams Head Center Stage), Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (Monday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); Passion Pit (Tuesday 7pm 9:30 Club), Ben Kweller (Friday 7pm 9:30 Club), Pietasters/Spring Heeled Jack (Saturday 7pm 9:30 Club); Jonny Lang (Tuesday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage Wednesday & Thursday 8pm Howard Theatre); Three Days Grace (Tuesday 7pm U Street Music Hall); John Oates Blues Band (Saturday 8:30pm The Hamilton); Anberlin “Vital” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I’ll start by saying there is absolutely ZERO about Blues Traveler that doesn’t kick ass…

SNL might have been your first chance to get a taste of Passion Pit. That doesn’t make you a bad person. No, no it does…

You say you haven’t heard of Ben Kweller? Yeah you have…

Holy hell Spring Heeled Jack is still a thing? My 10th grade year was so much better because of them…

9. Baltimore Beer Week (Friday-Monday throughout Charm City); Russian Festival (Friday-Sunday Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church); Maryland Renaissance Festival (Saturday & Sunday Revel Grove); Aries Spears (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory);  Kathy Griffin (Friday 8pm D.A.R. Constitution Hall); Kevin Hart (Saturday 8pm Verizon Center); Jay & Silent Bob Get Old (Tuesday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring); Bill Clinton (Tuesday 8pm Meyerhoff Symphony Hall); Mike Birbiglia (Thursday 7:30pm Meyerhoff Symphony Hall); “Moonrise Kingdom” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday)

If there’s anything worth devoting an entire week to around these parts, I’d say beer would be about #1 to #20 on the list. My fall go to?

And say whatever you want, Jay & Bob were a defining part of my adolescence. I still make conversational references to “The Amy Story” or “Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season” at least once a week…

Yes.
