This blog is intended to showcase the widely overlooked weirdness in Baltimore. At one point in time a friend mentioned that he wanted to publish a book entitled the Psychedelic Tour of Baltimore, this site is inspired by and dedicated to Uncle Lead. I often post others photos out of admiration. If I have posted one of your photos against your liking, please let me know and I will remove it as soon as I can.

Magnolia Electric Co. and Grand Buffet

Grand BuffetLast night we went to see Magnolia Electric Co. at the Ottobar. We seem to be going there a lot lately. I was not that familiar with Magnolia, but we went there with neighbors. Magnolia put on a great show. They are a little more country than I typically listen to, but they stepped over to rock with most of their songs. They had a sound reminiscent of The Big Wu, a band I am more familiar with.
Touring with Magnolia Electric Co. was Grand Buffet from Pittsburgh. They are two white guys and a CD player named Curtis. They were more up my alley. They played the entirety of their back up music on Curtis, their CD player. They ripped off hip-hop the likes of I haven't seen since The Bloodhound Gang. The set even included a ten minute accapela when Curtis ran out of batteries. After the show, I picked up their CD - Five Years of Fireworks. A quick listen to it on the ride home got five thumbs up.
I think the highlight of the night was Magnolia's encore when from Grand Buffet came out and they performed a rousing rendition of Running With The Devil.
All in all a great night. Unfortunately I left the camera at home.
Listen Up:
Grand Buffet - Americus
Grand Buffet - Candy Bars
Magnolia Electric Co. - The Dark Don’t Hide It
Magnolia Electric Co. - Leave the City
