The Gathering Food Truck Event

Power Plant Live!, 12 p.m.

Every food truck that is not sequestered on Hopkins campus for Spring Fair will likely make its way downtown to Power Plant. This particular gathering boasts live music in addition to all the delicacies usually offered.



Hopkins, 8 p.m.

Drag your friends from the Beach to the Rec Center and let the mayhem that is Spring Fair continue in the midst of Nelly, everyone’s favorite irrelevant rapper. Tickets are $18 for Hopkins affiliates. Alternatively, spend $18 on a handle of Burnett’s and some fried Oreos.



The Black Cat, 9:30 p.m.

If you are trying to escape campus before it inevitably collapses into alcohol- and sun poisoning-induced ruin, you might want to head to Washington, D.C. Sweat out your disdain for bro tanks and Natty Light during BODYWORK, a queer dance party. $8.


Poetry Cafe

Southeast Anchor Library Auditorium, 3 p.m.

In honor of National Poetry Month, this Baltimore public library will host an open mic event. Share poems about your meaningless life on D level, listen to your Baltimore brethren and indulge in free coffee and donuts.


Drunk Bach

Joe Squared Station North, 8 p.m.

Joe Squared facilitates the unlikely marriage of pizza, beer and classical music. Step away from the food trucks for a few hours and grab some real sustenance while letting orchestral masterpieces wash over you. Classical Revolution, a collective of musicians who perform classical music in unlikely locations, takes residence at Joe Squared once a month.


Blacksage LP Release Party

Metro Gallery, 9 p.m.

If Bach is not your thing, head to another Station North locale for music of an entirely different kind. For $7 you can hear what Blacksage calls their “creepy sexy lullaby jams” as well as music by other Baltimore acts.


Bishops and Goodwolf

Ottobar, 9 p.m.

If you are in denial that the partying is over and Monday is approaching, there is a free show downstairs at Ottobar for those who are 21+. There will be rock music and alcohol.
