The ‘Live Music Capital of the World’ is stopping by Baltimore’s premiere live music series on June 1, when Visit Austin’s custom Airstream trailer cruises into WTMD’s First Thursdays at Canton Waterfront Park.
The 30-foot vintage Airstream will park near the new East Stage at the free outdoor show, offering activities and a taste of Austin, Texas to Baltimore concertgoers.
“Visit Austin is excited to partner with WTMD for First Thursdays on June 1 to showcase upcoming musicians,” said Ashley Dowgwillo, Visit Austin’s Marketing and Music Manager. “We believe the series aligns with the creative and musical spirit of Austin and we look forward to sharing a glimpse of Austin with WTMD listeners and the Baltimore community.”
The June First Thursday concert features performances by Tift Merrit, Margaret Glaspy, Jeb Loy Nichols, SUSTO, Super City, The Rad Trads and Muddy Magnolias. This year, WTMD added a second stage and doubled the number of bands performing each month.
“The Visit Austin traveling airstream is a perfect fit for WTMD’s First Thursday Concert Series,” said Scott Mullins, WTMD’s Program Director and Station Manager. “The display embodies Austin’s commitment to supporting their music and art communities and is in complete alignment with WTMD’s programming philosophy and support of Baltimore’s creative community.”
First Thursdays is presented by Ron Howard and Associates of RE/MAX Preferred. The music starts at 5:30 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. at 3001 Boston St. No alcohol, glass containers or coolers are permitted.
