How's this for a recession special: From midnight tonight until 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, you will get two tickets for the price of one to all the August shows at Rams Head Live.
The folks at Rams Head are calling the promotion their Stay-cation Sale, and I don't know if there's been a deal that's quite like this at a Baltimore club since I've been covering local entertainment.
The special is only good for online orders (and, of course, while supplies last). According to promoter Mark Mangold, 50 pairs of tickets per show are being made available through the show ...
"People who aren't going to the beach this summer, we want to remind them that there are things to do in town," Mangold said. "You can go to the club and see a show.
"Hopefully, not too many of them take advantage of it," he added, with a laugh.
Here's a brief list of some of the August performers: Tracy Chapman, Caleb Stine, KC and the Sunshine Band, Blue October (pictured), The Black Crowes, etc.
