These places were nothing more than bordellos and the irony is they are just a few steps from Baltimore police HQs.

By its proximity to PDHQ, and the fact that the business owners didn't want potential customers to be kept away by fear of being robbed, The Block itself was actually one of the safest places in the city. More than a block or two away in any direction could be a bit spooky, although I never had any trouble on my visits there.

Did you see Blaze perform, or was that in her post-performance, club-owner days (nights)? I wish I had bought some jewelry from her when she had a store at that mall in Westminster.

I saw her perform a time or two. Always a tasteful burlesque routine, not the yucky nude stuff seen elsewhere.

Baltimores club scene is one of the weakest Ive ever seen-easily. Bar scenes is greta and there are some Raves as well.

Theres nothing like DC here.

For a black city i thought the same thign as you but no- Baltimore nightlife is much much more like my hometown than DC's
Never been to a rave but curious to see what they’re about. Wish the Marc ran late at night that would make going out in dc without a car way easier.

Before Covid, the Power Plant area is where I would go for live music.

Baltimore Soundstage is there and I've seen many shows there (Ice Nine Kills, Bouncing Souls, Bad Wolves/From Ashes to New, Summer Slaughter)

Rams Head Live is also there and I've also seen a few shows there as well (Frank Turner, The Amity Affliction, Against Me!)

Pier Six is also close by and I've only been there twice (Rise Against and Frank Turner). However, it is outdoors and only open during the summer.

The Power Plant District also has plenty of bars and restaurants and also has a children's museum called Port Discovery.

Check Amtrak or Greyhound. The bus station moved recently to the upper level of Union Station. A little more expensive for both compared to MARC but the option is there.

This place was, and sometimes still can be great. I have seen Jethro Tull, B.B. King, and Miles Davis decades before Harbor East.
A few years ago I caught CSN, with a screen up so us cheapskates couldn't see them sitting along the hotel. Years before this is how you saw bands before Harbor East. From the parking lot. And the bands never cared.

I didn't see him but I remember Roger Waters playing Pier Six like 20 years ago, and as he left some lucky fans getting autographs.

And they can still be open in September......
