Baltimore City Paper

See who's competing in Sound Off Live! for a spot at Artscape

Every year the organizers of Artscape bring a bevy of musicians to the city's massive outdoor arts festival. In more recent years, local bands have had the chance to take the stage through an "American Idol"-like competition called Sound Off Live! The Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts just announced this year's competition, taking place April 9-10 at the Metro Gallery, and you might recognize a few favorites from City Paper's pages and pixels.
