Your metal spring in Baltimore

Okay, okay.

I’ll be upfront – I know next to nothing about Metal. My boyfriend likes a bit of metal, so I can only recall names of CDs I see on our collective shelf. I can tell you what I like, but not really why. My credentials are next to none: I’ve seen Mastodon a handful of times. That’s it.

Anyway, from what little I know, early May is going to be pretty big for Metal lovers in Baltimore.
