We go out of our way to make sure were booking a diverse lineup, explained Brandon Linton, marketing director for Rams Head Live and Pier Six Pavilion locations. We try not to cater too much to one particular kind of music.
With the summer approaching, the different locations throughout Annapolis and Baltimore have released the season schedule. Check out what some of them have to offer!
