Wendel Patrick Quartet & Brandon Woody Upendo.
 ​​Deep musical power from two of Baltimore’s sonic visionaries. Wendel Patrick is rapidly making a name for himself as a producer to be recognized. His five albums were all produced without the use of sampling, with Patrick playing every note of every instrument. What is perhaps most astounding and perplexing to listeners is that there are actually no instruments...he crafts all of the instruments, and every note, electronically. Equally at home performing on stage with his band, behind two turntables, beatboxing, improvising, or playing a Mozart Concerto on stage with orchestra, Wendel Patrick has toured Europe on several occasions and performed throughout the world with renowned spoken word artist and poet Ursula Rucker. Brandon has refined and defined his own sound -a blistering and soulful jazz direction powered by his masterful trumpet playing. Live, audiences can hear influences from Miles Davis to contemporary hip hop in the music of his band Brandon Woody Upendo. At a moment when so many young, talented jazz players are moving to New York, Chicago, and LA, Brandon is back in Baltimore infusing the highly talented scene with his energy, style, and skill. $18, $15 members, in person in advance (+$3 over the phone, online, or at the door). 8PM. Creative Alliance at the Patterson, 3134 Eastern Ave., Baltimore. https://www.creativealliance.org/events/2019/wendel-patrick-quartet-brandon-woody-upendo

Wicked. ​February 12-March 8. So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle.

When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.” With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you’ll never forget. Ticket prices and showtimes vary. Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N Eutaw St., Baltimore. http://www.france-merrickpac.com/index.php/calendar
