Teddy Douglass has set up a First Monday residency at the Rockwell, the Fells club owned by one of the All Time Low guys, that focuses on the sort of instrument-based house music Douglass and Jay Steinhour of the Basement Boys took all the way to the top of the charts in the early ’90s. Along with Douglass, there’s DJ Tanz and instrumentalists Davon on percussion and Charles Dockins on keyboards. The guest this month is falsetto house icon Byron Stingily, former lead singer for Ten City, best known for their swooping and devastating track, ‘That’s The Way Love Is.’ In other words: Look everybody, this a chance to be in the same room up close and personal with a fucking vocal house legend in a loose, almost jam-like, exploratory context—and you should absolutely go and take it in whether you know Stingily’s work or not. You’ll be crying into your beer by the time he finds his way to ‘That’s The Way Love Is’ no doubt, but in the fully cathartic and empowering way house music enables. 7 p.m., The Rockwell, 702 S. Broadway, (443) 835-1336, therockwellbaltimore.com, $10.
