We’re kicking off the season in June with a stellar lineup of local and national WTMD favorites:

Headliner DEHD is an eclectic trio out of Chicago with a raw, melodic sound, and a touch of early 90’s alternative. Their new album Poetry is set for release on Fat Possum Records on May 10. Their hypnotic single “Mood Ring” is spinning now on TMD and their hit “Bad Love” made it into our Top 89 Songs of 2022.

Snacktime is a seven-piece band from Philadelphia, sure to bring the party with their blend of soul, funk, punk, rock, jazz, hip hop, and R&B to the WTMD stage. Formed during the pandemic, they performed free shows throughout Philly, gaining them a legion of fans and a tour slot with Portugal the Man.

Baltimore’s Giji opens the show! Led by brother and sister Wes and Liv, this five-piece band mixes rock and pop with a sprinkle of disco, and released an EP earlier this year called Porcelain.

Dance the night away and admire the sunset along Baltimore’s scenic waterfront. Enjoy delicious local fare from a variety of food and beverage vendors. Support local artisans, makers, and manufacturers, including an expanded Baker Artist Alley. There’s something for everyone at First Thursdays. It’s where community happens.
