Have you been to SoWeBo yet? The neighborhood with the crazy (but awesome) name is also home to a great music and art festival this Sunday, May 26th from noon until 8PM.

It's that time of year again in the Maryland film world. The Maryland Film Fest starts on May 8th, runs until May 12th, and is spread over three venues including the Charles Theater in Station North. Tickets and passes are on sale now. This year's highlights include:
- I am Devine, a documentary about actor, singer, and drag icon Harris Glenn Milstead, better known as Divine. Divine was the star of many John Waters films including the original Hairspray as Tracy's Mom Edna Turnblad.
- The Lost World, the 1925 adaption of the 1912 Arthur Conan Doyle novel which will have a live original score by Alloy Orchestra.
- Ulrich Seidl's Paradise Trilogy, of which Paradise:Faith will be presented by John Waters as one of his favorites.
- Bobcat Goldthwait's Bigfoot film called Willow Creek. This was shot on the same location as the famous and controversial Patterson-
Gimlin footage some 45 years ago.

This Friday will see the return of one of Baltimore's All-Star bands you've probably never heard of. The Velvet Velvets are reforming to play a few dates this Spring. They will be kicking it off at the Windup Space on May 3rd before heading to New York for a show. The band consists of great musicians from the Baltimore area, including members of the Baltimore Afrobeat society. The groups was formed for a 24 theater event that Michael Flanagan Smith put together called Smalltimore and played for many gigs after around town until most of them left for other places around the world. Check out thewindupspace.com and facebook.com/thevelvetvelvets for more info. It will be one of the hottest music shows this Spring. If you have been to theater or music shows in this town, you will recognize some of these folks!

The 10th annual Baltimore EcoFest is this Saturday, April 27th in Druid Hill Park from 11:30AM to 5PM. Besides food and drinks (including a beer garden), you can do a free bike ride around the lake and pick up a free tree sapling. I've gotten two in the last two years including a dogwood tree that just bloomed this spring after being planted this time last year. Here's the website.
