-Live Baltimore


Tonight is the first night of the “First Thursday” concerts from WTMD, which has moved from Mt. Vernon to Canton’s Waterfront Park.

Tonight’s lineup includes Joseph Arthur, who was originally discovered by Peter Gabriel and Marah, a rock band that has been around since the late 90s. Headlining the show is Joan Osborne, best known for her hit song “One of Us.”

As for the rest of the summer, Los Lonely Boys are lined up for June, while Strand of Oaks plays in July, JD McPherson is set for August and The Hold Steady will finish out the series in September. WTMD has yet to announce all of the acts, so keep your eyes peeled for additional performers.

The Brewer’s Art will be on the scene, making sure there’s plenty of beer, wine, and cider for sale (though outside alcohol is no longer permitted). Guests are welcome, however, to bring any outside food or purchase fare from various food trucks.

A few other rules have changed for the series since last year. Guests are discouraged from bringing their dogs to the show, and have been asked to only park south of Boston Street. Parking maps and directions are available online.

Canton Waterfront Park opens at 6:30 p.m. for each show, and the concerts will last from 7-10 p.m.
