Sense of Place: Baltimore - Five Up And Coming Baltimore Bands

Sense of Place: Baltimore - Five Up And Coming Baltimore Bands


Sense of Place: Baltimore - Five Up And Coming Baltimore Bands There is more to the local Baltimore music scene than Future Islands, Beach House, Wye Oak and the other bands that have broken nationally out of the city. For our Sense of Place stop in Baltimore we asked Sam Sessa who hosts The Baltimore Hit Parade on WTMD, showcasing new and up-and-coming bands, to play us some of his favorites. Not to give too much away, but you will be amazed by the breadth of styles in his selections and the quality. Feel free to download these songs.

Session Setlist
“NEXT WEEKEND” - The Heard on Main Street
“Find You” – Super City
“Calling Out The Law” – George Cessna
“Beauty Meat” – Sun Club
