Looking for something to do this Halloween? Have an amazing costume and unsure where to show it off? Love tacos? Look no further than Transcendent Event’s Halloween Mayhem in Baltimore on All Hallow’s Eve. The 21 and over event features free tacos, a costume contest, and live bands, including a debut performance by local emo rock band Flares. Also on the line-up is Greasy Hands, a self-described “funk driven psychedelic progressive rock” band whose single Phantasmagoria is a great soundtrack for a surreal evening. And if you’re in the mood for punchy melodies and a laidback rhythm? Outside Smoke’s performance is the one to watch. But don’t worry, metal-heads and moshers, Consumer Culture will be putting on a grungy performance at the end of the evening that will meet your spooky Halloween expectations.
The venue, Angels Rock Bar, is “part lounge, part club, and all rock ‘n’ roll,” so get ready for a wild night in Power Plant Live. Head to the event at 7:00PM and make sure to fill up on your hour of free tacos at 8:00PM. And make sure your costume is on point, because there’s a prize for the best one.

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.
This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
