On Saturday, July 8th, from 9 p.m. to midnight, Baltimore’s Got Talent presents Obi City’s Birthday Roast at the Depot Baltimore (1728 North Charles Street). Fifteen contestants compete for the number one spot. Think of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, The Voice, and America’s Next Top Model combined! The contest is hosted by Brooklyn Heights. For their mini challenge, the contestants must create a runway look that best showcases their personal craft. For their main challenge, the contestants must roast not only the city of Baltimore but also the birthday girl, Obi City. This month they have performances by all the contestants as well as Brandon Lee Baer, Sabrina White, Iyana Deschanel, and Miss Stacey Antoine. Doors open at 9 p.m. and showtime is 10. Cover is $7.

On Sunday, July 9th at 9 p.m., the Rowan Tree and Shawnna Shows present “Twisted Wrong” at the Rowan Tree (1633 South Charles Street, Baltimore). Baltimore’s Queen of Comedy, Shawnna Alexander, will host this show where you will see all the girls dressed to the nines in drag, while lip-syncing to their favorite song by a male vocalist. The guys will dress as dudes, but lip-sync their favorite song sung by a female vocalist. Very twisted! There’s no cover for this show. Free parking is available with a parking pass from the bar.
