An Evening with John Moreland. ​The replay of John Moreland's network television debut is…glorious and affirming and a sucker punch. He is announced by Stephen Colbert, lights dissolve, and the camera slowly focuses on the person midway across the unadorned stage, revealing him beneath muted blue lights. He is a big man. Seated, alone, cradling his acoustic guitar. He looks like nobody who is famous. Then he begins to sing, to caress the song “Break My Heart Sweetly,” and all that remains is to whisper, “Oh, my god.” In Colbert's studio everybody stood, like they were in church. Big Bad Luv is the record John Moreland made after, after everything in his life changed. For the better. $28, $23 members (+$3 at the door). 8PM. Creative Alliance at the Patterson, 3134 Eastern Ave., Baltimore. https://www.creativealliance.org/events/2019/evening-john-moreland

​Dream Theater: Distance Over Time Tour + 20 Years of Metropolis Pt. 2. Chemistry triggers action. The bonds of disparate elements yield friction, energy, and ultimately incite creation. It happens throughout all of existence—especially in music. The music of Dream Theater relies on the interplay and brotherhood of the musicians as much as it does on the harmony of the instruments. In fact, the chemistry the band unlocked upon forming in 1985 remains central to the music they create today. The progressive metal pioneers—James LaBrie (Vocals), John Petrucci (Guitars), Jordan Rudess (Keyboards), John Myung (Bass), and Mike Mangini (Drums)— share a unique bond with one of the most passionate fan bases around the globe as evidenced by their two GRAMMY® Award nominations and 15 million records sold worldwide. Ticket prices vary. 8PM. Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N Eutaw St., Baltimore. https://baltimore.broadway.com/shows/dream-theater-distance-over-time-tour-20-years-of-metropolis-pt-2/
