Tomorrow is Super Music Tuesday

jay-zDo you know what tomorrow is?

Tomorrow is big. Real big.

So big, in fact, that I'm calling it Super Music Tuesday.

Tomorrow is perhaps the biggest day for live music in Baltimore this fall. Jay-Z is playing 1st Mariner. Snoop Dogg is playing Rams Head Live. Jewel is playing the Lyric. And Van Morrison is playing the Meyerhoff.

Whew! Now comes the cool part ...

Midnight Sun is sending four (4) reviewers out on the town to cover the shows. I'm covering Jay-Z, John-John Williams IV is covering Snoop, Chris Kaltenbach is covering Jewel (read his interview with her here) and Evan Haga is covering Van Morrison.

So get ready, gang. Midnight Sun is about to represent.

Oh snap!

I will be very interested to hear the Van Morrison review.. The Meyerhoff is sweet as far as sound, but sometimes Van disappoints.. I saw him at DAR, which also is the ultimate sound specs but he was uninspired, and then, so were we..

Last day to win free passes to Snoop Dogg right here:

Good luck!

If you need help covering Mr. Carter's show, just let me know :)

Queen Colleen and I will be at Snoop!

I am photographing Van, Jay and Jewel. email me if you need photos for your review.

Hi Owen,

I think we've got Jay-Z and Jewel covered, but I might need shots of Van the Man. I'll let you know tomorrow.


I saw Jay-Z in his early days at the old Parrot Island in Fells Point. It was a great show--he will not disappoint!

The Dear Hunter will be playing at Ottobar on Tuesday which will undoubtedly be a better concert than all of these 'well past their prime' musicians.
