Postmodern Jukebox gained a loyal following through their Youtube channel. The collective cover modern pop tracks (and some old classics as well) in a big band style. Everyone from Miley Cyrus to TLC has got the Postmodern Jukebox treatment. Now, for 2020 they’re celebrating one hundred years since the 1920’s – bringing the era to life through the songs of now! Postmodern Jukebox’s forte is taking a track too easily dismissed by some more ‘highbrow’ music lovers as disposable music for tweens and giving it a classy, big band twist. For more info.

A BALTIMORE SITCOM: Roger and Brandon, an interracial couple living in South Baltimore, are doing the best they can. Their mortgage is late, Roger’s been laid off for months, and there might be a ghost in the attic. It’s a lot. And that was before all of their parents had to move in with them. From the hilarious mind of Baltimore’s own R. Eric Thomas and directed by Obie Award winner Stevie Walker-Webb, The Folks at Home is a contemporary riff on the beloved family sitcoms of the 1970s.
