Ted Leo and the Pharmacists play Baltimore December 7

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists will make a previously unannounced stop in Baltimore in early December.

The DC punk rock band has been touring in support of their new album, "The Brutalist Rick Bricks,"* and were scheduled to stay on the road through December 6, when they'll play Terminal 5 in New York. 

Earlier this week, Hampden's The G-Spot posted on Facebook the band would play an additional show at their venue Tuesday, December 7.

Heks Orkest, which has members from disbanded bands like DC's Engine Down, will open for Leo. 

Doors open at 8 p.m. The show is open to all ages. 

Tickets go on sale Friday at and at Charmington's Cafe.

The G-Spot is at 2980 Falls Road.

*Though, "the Brutalist Rick" has a nice ring to it.

The album is called the brutalist bricks. Google is your friend.

"The Brutalist Rick". Hahaha. Thanks for the early morning laugh. You are terrible Maza!


What's the alcohol situation? Is Gspot byob?

I've been to only 2 shows there, but both times it was BYOB. There were also Natty Boh cans at the concession stand for very nearly, if not totally, free.

The place is totally byob. I think the beer at the concession stand belonged to people, just kept in a refrigerator....cant wait for this show!

Oh, yeah, timothy. "Wink"

No, seriously! I actually went to a show there (last year maybe?) and had to run up the road to buy some beer. They offered to keep it cold, but I held onto it.
