So we’ve been hearing a lot of buzz lately about the relatively “new face” in music, XXL 2016 ‘Freshman class’ inductee Anderson .Paak. Well OK, he’s not exactly new since he’s been on the scene since 2010, but people are just now really finding out about him. He can thank that success to Dr. Dre for putting him on the ‘Compton’ motion picture soundtrack.
Since being featured on that set, the waves he has been making on his own have been crashing into peoples eardrums. Recently his sophomore album entitled ‘Malibu‘ was released at the top of the year and met with critical acclaim, so what’s next for an artist to do once they drop an album…you already know, they hit the road.

Wednesday night in Baltimore was an extremely colorful one, one with a gold hue extending over the Inner Harbor section of the city. No, it wasn’t because of a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, but because of the energy that was brought to town from Philadelphia based artist Santigold as her “We Buy Gold” tour arrived at Baltimore Soundstage.

After busting out of the box with her breakthrough hit “Try Me”, Detroit based rapper Dej Loaf is capitalizing on that success by making moves across the country.
Starting mid July, she’s going to be part of Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Print” tour, but in between those show dates she will be headlining her own shows. One of those shows happens to be in Baltimore.
You can catch Dej coming to the Baltimore Soundstage on Thursday, July 23rd at 8pm, one day after her DMV appearance on Nicki’s tour. Supporting her on this particular show is fellow newcomer Elijah Blake. Tickets for this show are only $20 and can be purchased via the Soundstage’s website.
If you think back to the very early 2000’s, there was a show called “Making The Band”, BEFORE Diddy took over the show. The 1st iteration consisted of a boy band called O-Town that hailed from Orlando, FL and spawned a popular hit song “Liquid Dreams” in 2001.
Many teenie boppers at that time remember this because this was THE era for the mass resurgence of the boy band, and young girls were LOVING them. Well in 2003, the group decided to split and do their own solo thing, leaving their fans high and dry. That was until 10 years later when they reformed the group and started recording again. Fast forward 2 years, and now we’ve learned that O-Town will be heading on a U.S. tour.

Regardless of the frigid temperatures that took over the area on the 20th of February, the crowd showed up and showed out. The last stop on Wale’s ‘Simply Nothing’ tour, sponsored by Simple Mobile, was in Charm City at the Baltimore Soundstage. A number of artist took to the stage displaying an array of talent. From local artist to the likes of Fat Trel and Audio Push.
Wale took to the stage just in time to settle down a crowd that was becoming just a little bit restless. At times, the events that were going on in the crowd would distract patrons from what was happening on stage. However, it was a good show overall and I would recommend catching a show when he comes to your area. Although, I would probably recommend that they don’t have so many opening acts on the next tour.
Take the time to check out a few videos from the show below and make sure to stay tuned to Concert Daily for future Wale dates.
