It’s Live Music Season in Downtown Baltimore
As the weather gets warmer, nights in Baltimore get hot for live music fans. This spring and summer, downtown Baltimore music venues will welcome tons of musical acts, ranging from big, well-known names to smaller performers just starting out.
As you put together your summertime concert schedule, you’ll have plenty of options. Downtown Baltimore has several terrific concert venues, each with its own vibe. Whether you’re looking for a chill night by the water, a crazy mosh pit, or something in between, you can find it downtown.
Pier Six Pavilion
Pier Six Pavilion is located right on the water, on Pier Six. It’s a gorgeous spot for a concert, whether you’re watching from the lawn or from a seat under the covered pavilion.
As an outdoor venue, Pier Six is only open from April through October. During that time, it hosts a wide variety of acts, from vintage rockers like The Offspring and ZZ Top, to indie darlings The War on Drugs, country legend Bonnie Raitt, and even the upbeat Canadians Barenaked Ladies.
Located at 124 Market Place, Baltimore Soundstage is an intimate indoor venue with table seating that can be reserved in advance (the whole place can also be reserved for private events).
The Soundstage lineup includes all sorts of different music and events. One night, Taylor Swift fans might converge on the space for a Swiftie dance party and the next evening, Baltimore Soundstage is all about hardcore metal acts. It’s a something-for-everyone kind of place and has shows booked during the week and on weekends all summer long.
Rams Head Live!
Rams Head Live! – located right in the Power Plant Live! complex – has been rocking in Baltimore for almost 20 years.
The indoor venue hosts shows that are usually general admission and standing room only (though there are a few barstools and bleacher seats). This summer’s lineup includes acts like They Might Be Giants, The Legwarmers, and Ty Segall with Freedom Band, plus events like the Charm City Go-Go Bash and the annual Memorial Day Weekend celebration of death metal, Maryland Deathfest.
Planning Your Trip & Where to Park
When you’re heading downtown for a show – whether it’s a big concert on the water at Pier Six or an intimate show at one of the smaller venues – figuring out where to park is key.
Located at 55 Market Place, next to Power Plant Live!, Harbor Park Garage is convenient to Pier Six, Ram’s Head Live! and Baltimore Soundstage. Its central location is just a short walk to the venues themselves and is close to many restaurants and bars, where you can grab something to eat or a drink before or after the show.
The garage is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is accessible to I-83 and other major routes in and out of downtown Baltimore. Harbor Park is also clean, well-lit, and staffed 24/7 by a friendly, knowledgeable crew who are happy to answer questions about where to go, what to do and how to get there.
