The Butchies' album

Lesbian punk rock trio the Butchies hit the Royal Saturday in support of their new album, Make Yr Life.

The trio describes the album as being "like waking from a coma, or like having your dog lick away your tears, or like the first kiss with that sexy girl with moonlight splashed on her face."

The Butchies headline Saturday's show, which also features performances by Misty Letts and Secret Crushed Society. Doors open at 7 p.m., and tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.

The Royal is at 1542 Light St. Call 410-783-7776 or visit

Too much culture never hurt anyone, and no group heaps on the culture quite like music ensemble Campanile. The group features performers who will tell "The Ancient Tale of Lahat," billed as a multi- ethnic celebration of music, with a host of musical instruments Saturday at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium.

The performance, "Rites of Sound: A Mystic Vision," combines storytelling, music and dance. "Rites of Sound" features songs from Campanile's latest release, Nocturnal Journeys, other original songs and more recognizable tunes.

Campanile performs at 8 p.m. Saturday in Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium.

Goucher College is on Dulaney Valley Road in Towson. Tickets are $22 for general admission and $19 for seniors. Call 877-332-374-6437.
