Fred Schneider of the B-52's may be from Georgia, but his love of Waters-esque Baltimore kitsch has been on display for years, so it's no wonder that he's coming to one of his favorite haunts, the American Visionary Arts Museum for a benefit concert and dance party.
Fred Schneider and the Mastergators play AVAM April 9th from 7pm to Midnight. There's a VIP Happy Hour with Fred from 6-7pm. That oughta be a hoot! The Mastegators, BTW, feature former Scissor Sister Paddy Boom and Rodney Henry of Dangerously Delicious Pies!
If you need any more evidence that Fred kinda digs Baltimore, check out the video to this song, which was inspired, in part, by TV Meat pitch woman Paula Deen and an incident in which she got bonked in the head by a can of ham. Avid vegetarian Fred shot the video at....can you guess where?
Oh, and a special shout-out to organizers of the Uncorked 2010 Table Design Competition, which I helped judge at AVAM last night, along with Chef Duff and other catering experts. One of the music-inspired tables that really got our attention was based on the B-52's "Love Shack". Hurry up and bring your jukebox money April 9th!
