BSO Celebrates Poe

Yes, I was very happy with myself for coming up with that title.

Anyway, if you're into the Finer Arts, you should check out the The Raven, tonight or tomorrow at the Meyerhoff at 8pm. Guest conductor Leonard Slatkin, and the BSO, are performing The Raven, a musical accompaniment to Edgar Allan Poe's poetry. The performance also includes narration of five of Poe's poems by legendary actor, and Baltimore native, John Astin (you know Gomez Addams).

Sounds like a great time. Tickets range between $20-$60, which you can order online.
If you are looking for something to do outside of Baltimore this weekend, you know spice it up a bit, the National Portrait Gallery is opening a new exhibit on Lincoln called, One Life: The Mask of Lincoln. They have over 30 portraits and photographs including Alexander Gardner's cracked plate photograph that was the last photo ever taken of Lincoln before his death. The crack cuts across his head, coincidence?
Enjoy your weekend Baltimore. As for me, I'll be checking out the Loyola vs Catholic men's b-ball game tonight, let's go 'Hounds.
