The Crown Baltimore, North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD, United States

Event Description

In solidarity with Bad Hombres and Nasty Women across the country, Bad and Nasty Bmore is designing a full day of events on February 20th in Station North, along Charles Street and North Avenue. The holiday Monday will include family friendly workshops, activism, play readings and performances at Stillpointe Theater (1825 N Charles St) followed by an evening cabaret at The Crown (1910 N. Charles St) that will feature music, comedy, drag, burlesque, and other acts. Bad and Nasty B’more has engaged dozens of artists and welcomes others to participate. The lineup includes a diverse and growing crew of Baltimore comics, singers and songwriters, directors, actors, performance artists, playwrights, and more. The event aims not only to galvanize and transform the emotions of participants and audience, but also to raise awareness about the organizations in our own city whose work supports and protects those most threatened by Trump’s administration. The organizers are currently developing partnerships with local organizations whose social, educational, health, and environmental missions could be served by visibility and participation at this event. Contributions (monetary and otherwise) can be made directly to participating organizations. Amid an abusive climate of bigotry, sexism, xenophobia, environmental devastation and a long list of injustices, Bad and Nasty Bmore calls on all Charm City citizens to come out and strengthen community, engage/rage in dialogue, rupture false rhetoric, disrupt the normalizing and be heard.
