Since relocating to Canton, WTMD’s First Thursday concerts have grown bigger, expanding to two stages, and arguably better, drawing more high-profile national acts to play a free outdoor concert with local musicians along the waterfront.
Not everybody can make every show, of course, undoubtedly leaving plenty of Baltimore area music fans with FOMO. Enter: Maryland Public Television.
The network will air two one-hour specials highlighting performances from two shows in this year’s First Thursday series, offering crisp sound quality of the sets and behind-the-scenes interviews with the bands.
The first show, airing Oct. 18 at 10 p.m. on MPT and simulcast on WTMD, will feature the June 7 concert with Family of the Year, Typhoon and Danielia Cotton.
On Oct. 25 at 10 p.m., the network and radio station will have music by Lake Street Dive, The Suffers and Andy Bopp, who all played Canton Waterfront Park on July 5.
The specials will be rebroadcast on MPT2 on Oct. 20 and 27 at 8:30 p.m., respectively.
Check out a preview below. If you missed the concerts the first time around, or simply want to experience them again, here’s your chance.
