Summer Concerts in Maryland

One of the best things about summertime is getting to go to concerts -- and one of the best things about Maryland is getting so many great acts coming through! If you're planning to listen to some live music here in MD, you're in luck. There are a wide variety of bands and singers to see this summer, and here are just a few of them:

 6/23: Paramore, Merriweather Post Pavillion

There's still time to grab tickets to this one! If you're looking for something to do this coming weekend, why not go indulge in some of your middle school pop-punk nostalgia (come on, you know they're going to play Misery Business) while also enjoying some of their new stuff too.

7/9: Barenaked Ladies, MECU Pavillion

It's pretty much impossible not to sing along when the Barenaked Ladies are playing on the radio, so imagine how much better it's going to be when they're actually on stage in front of you! They'll be performing with better than Ezra and KT Tunstall, so you know it's going to be a fun night. (Don't forget that MECU Pavillion is the new name for Pier 6 Pavillion!)

7/22: DC 101 Kerfuffle, Merriweather Post Pavillion

Maryland is going to be the place to rock out this July, thanks to the acts coming to play in the Kerfuffle! These include Fall Out Boy, AWOLNATION, Rise Against and more. There's no better way to spend a day with your friends than hanging on the lawn at Merriweather, listening to your faves. 

8/11-8/12: Moonrise Festival, Pimlico Racetrack

Have you checked out the lineup for this super-popular electronic music festival? If not, you definitely need to -- Diplo, DJ Snake, and Zeds Dead are just a few of the acts that will be playing at Pimlico this summer. This the perfect opportunity to wear your wackiest clothes and discover the next big thing in electronic music! And two days will ensure your entire weekend is fun-filled.

8/18: All Time Low & Dashboard Confessional, MECU Pavillion

It's time to get hit by all the feelings! Baltimore darlings All Time Low are joined by another 2000's emo-pop powerhouse, Dashboard Confessional. If you're ready to relive the good old days and you're not content to simply spend an evening at the Rockwell (which in itself is a pretty darn good time), you won't want to miss this show. 

8/22: Kenny Chesney, Merriweather Post Pavillion

If you're a country fan, you've probably had this show on your calendar for awhile! Spend an evening unwinding with Kenny Chesney and opening act Old Dominion -- the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer before you head back to school or just say goodbye to those lazy, warm summer nights.
