JIM PATTON & SHERRY BROKUS:

 

In the ‘80s and early ‘90s, Patton and Brokus were co-leaders of a top Maryland rock'n'roll band, Edge City, based in Severna Park. In 1994, the couple moved to Austin, Texas, where they slowly but surely climbed the ladder of the city’s legendary singer-songwriter scene. They are now a national touring act and have released their best album yet. In the liner notes Washington Post music critic Geoffrey Himes writes, “In his early 60s, an age when most singer-songwriters have been in decline for a decade or more, Jim Patton has improbably deepened and broadened his art. For his new album with his wife and longtime musical partner Sherry Brokus, “The Great Unknown,” Patton has crafted 10 new songs that do more than explain himself to his listeners; these songs explain those listeners to themselves. For many years Patton has shined a revealing light on his own past and the inside of his own head. But with this record, he aims his flashlight into other skulls and into the future. “The Great Unknown,” indeed.”

GEOFFREY HIMES:

 

Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, Baltimore City Paper, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, Paste and others, Geoffrey Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Fred Koller, Walter Egan, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Jim Patton, Ed Pettersen, Howard Markman, Paul Margolis, Josh Charles, Timothy Bracken, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. This month Himes will premiere his new song, “When a Friend Says He’s Got Cancer." He will be accompanied by Willem Elsevier, violinist for such acts as Love Riot, Billy Kemp and Milkshake.

 

AN DIE MUSIK:

An Die Musik is Baltimore’s finest listening room. With 84 armchairs, great acoustics, the city’s best piano and a lobby bar, this performance space above the venerable record store is as intimate as it is inviting. The street parking meters are free on Sundays; the venue offers discount coupons for the area’s ethnic restaurants, and the 5 pm start time keeps the afternoon free while allowing a good night's sleep before the work week. Here, at last, is a music experience designed for adults.
